justice league reshoots rumor

Reshoots are a part of the movie-making business. And it can seem overzealous to simply report on the fact that reshoots are happening — trust me, I’m as tired of these kind of stories as you are, especially when they act like this is something out of the ordinary. In many cases, they’re a good thing and help make a good movie great. But when reports say that Justice League has essentially been “remade…twice” after “significant” reshoots, and is looking at even more reshoots down the barrel, that’s seems — well — significant.

Wonder Woman Sequel

The release of Wonder Woman is just a couple months away, and as more footage of the movie has been shown at CinemaCon and WonderCon over the past week, fans are getting more excited to see the DC Comics superheroine get her own adventure on the big screen.

While making an appearance at WonderCon this past weekend, DC Comics President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns was asked about Wonder Woman sequel plans, and his answer indicated that they’re not getting ahead of themselves for the time being.  Read More »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne

The news that Ben Affleck would no longer direct Warner Bros.’ solo Batman movie came as something of a surprise, particularly since we knew he’d already put considerable time and effort into it. As far back as 2015, there were reports that he was writing the script with Geoff Johns. And more recently, it turns out, Affleck had even brought in his Argo writer Chris Terrio for additional help.  Read More »

Justice League Green Lantern

Batman

We’ve known since even before Batman v Superman opened that Ben Affleck‘s Batman was gearing up for his own solo movie, but as of now details about what exactly that movie will be remain sparse.

Who knows whether this rumor will turn out to be any truer than all of the other ones, but sure, it’s fun to think about.  Read More »

Ben Affleck Batman

Visiting the set of Zack Sndyer‘s Justice League, we were told that we would not be interviewing any of the film’s cast. And especially not Ben Affleck, whom I’ve heard typically doesn’t do press while he’s filming a movie. We were watching them film a scene that features Commissioner Gordon meeting with a few members of the Justice League (read about that scene here). As production wrapped for the day, the costume department removed his bat cowl, leaving him with a damp head and eyes ringed with black eyeshadow. On his way to his dressing room, Affleck stopped to say hello to us.

Christian [Bale] never let reporters see him with the raccoon eyes, proving that Christian is a much smarter man than I am.
