armie hammer batman

You may not know this, but Armie Hammer came very close to playing Batman in George Miller‘s never-made Justice League Mortal. We’ll never know if Hammer would’ve made a good Batman or not, but now we know how he would’ve portrayed the character – as a psychotic. According to Hammer, he really wanted to lean into how freakin’ nuts it is to have a billionaire running around dressed as a giant bat.

three Thousand Years Of Longing

After what’s felt like three thousand years of longing, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller has finally lined-up his next project, appropriately titled Three Thousand Years of Longing. We don’t know much about the film, but we know that the film is a love story that will feature Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton. The project is also said to be “unlike anything the filmmaker has done before.” Just the knowledge that Miller is finally directing a new film should be enough to get most film fans excited.

Fury Road Lawsuit

Oh, what a lovely day for a lawsuit. George Miller, who created a modern-day masterpiece with Mad Max: Fury Road, is not content to just sit back and make a Fury Road follow-up without getting his just rewards. The Aussie filmmaker wants the WB to pay-up on a bonus they originally agreed on. Warner Bros. doesn’t see it that way, and so both Miller and Warners will now hop into souped-up vehicles laden with spikes and race forward into the wasteland of due process. What will become of the potential Fury Road sequel now?

Steven Soderbergh Fury Road

Steven Soderbergh has always been a filmmaker very open to praising fellow artists, and in a recent interview the Logan Lucky director sang the praises of George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. In a bit of effusive praise for Miller and his directorial skills, Soderbergh commented on how incredibly well-staged the action set pieces in the recent Mad Max sequel were, and how they left him awestruck.

Justice League Mortal

Before Batman v Superman, there was going to be Superman vs. Wonder Woman.

It’s a classic, bittersweet case of “what could’ve been.” George Miller‘s abandoned Justice League Mortal movie remains mostly a mystery to us, confined to the reaches of our imagination. But talking about the possibilities of never-made movies is always fascinating, and one of the the scrapped film’s cast members, Jay Baruchel (who was set to play villain Maxwell Lord), took a walk down memory lane to reveal some tantalizing details of the never-made film — including a brutal throwdown between two of the World’s Finest.

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.

Doof Warrior

Coma the Doof Warrior is dead, but if and when George Miller makes another Mad Max sequel, the onesie-loving, flame-throwing guitarist could return. During the many delays of Mad Max: Fury Road, backstories were created for the characters, including one for the Doof Warrior. Miller has a whole explanation for how Coma started working for Immortan Joe and even his guitar’s origin, and the director says that he will bring the character back.

Find out more about the Doof Warrior returning in future Mad Max movies below.

Batman (Ben Affleck) in Batman v Superman

When it was announced that Ben Affleck will no longer be directing The Batman, we immediately assumed that it would take at least a few days before the names of potential filmmakers started to emerge. I even wrote a list and everything. But this morning has been full of news related to next solo Batman movie, which will take place after the upcoming Justice League. First, we heard that Dawn of the Planet of Apes director Matt Reeves and Captain Fantastic director Matt Ross were in the running. Now, a few more names have crept out of the woodwork.

mad max 5

Back in 2015, /Film stopped being a movie site and started being a Mad Max: Fury Road fan site for a little while. But can you blame us? Our favorite movie of that year struck a chord with movie fans all over the world, managing to appeal to action movie junkies and cineastes alike with its inventive filmmaking, wild performances, and rich attention to theme and detail. It remains one of the best movies I’ve seen in a theater in the past decade. So yeah, we’d welcome another entry in the series…and so would star Tom Hardy, who says he’s just waiting for someone to call him.
