5 Reasons Why Ben Affleck as Batman Is a Good Idea
The Twitter-sphere blew up on Thursday night around 8:20 p.m. when Warner Bros. confirmed that the next Batman would be…Ben Affleck.  Yes, you read that right.  The man formerly known as Daredevil will be slipping on the cowl and cape for the Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs. Superman film (or Man of Steel 2 or whatever they...

The Fire Rises: Nolan Concludes His "Dark Knight" Trilogy in Stunning, Spectacular Fashion

The Fire Rises: Nolan Concludes His "Dark Knight" Trilogy in Stunning, Spectacular Fashion
First things first, The Dark Knight Rises is not The Dark Knight.  Check those expectations at the door.  Heath Ledger is gone, and nobody will ever replace his iconic Joker.  The Dark Knight is a modern masterpiece and was robbed of a Best Picture Oscar (to say nothing of a nomination even).  Christopher Nolan set...

The Dark Knight Retrospective: Re-Watching Batman & Robin (1997)

The Dark Knight Retrospective: Re-Watching Batman & Robin (1997)
BATMAN & ROBIN (1997) Oh, how the mighty have fallen.  What started as a runaway pop cultural juggernaut under Burton had, by 1997, devolved into a joke.  And not even a funny joke – a pathetic one.  I’m sure there are worse superhero films that have been made, I just can’t think of any.  Batman...

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (July 20).  Christopher Nolan's much-anticipated conclusion to his Batman trilogy, and the follow-up to the best superhero movie of all time.  'Nuff said.
Feeling less than inspired to run out and go see the week’s sole new release, The Devil Inside?  Don’t worry – you’re not alone.  But have faith, January may not be indicative, but 2012 has plenty of exciting movies on the horizon.  With the caveat that there’s going to be other surprise movies that will...

MUST WATCH: The Batman Complex

I have to give a shout out to my good buddy Matt Campobasso who showed me this today.  In an ingenious bit of having waaaaaay too much time on your hands, the fan who made this fake trailer took bits of Inception, The Machinist, The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins, among others, and cooked up a...

The Villain in the Next Batman Movie Is...

This is a lot of he-said-she-said speculative what-nottery, but FirstShowing.net is reporting that allegedly there exists a casting grid for the next Batman movie and allegedly the character The Riddler appears on said casting grid next to the name “Joseph Gordon-Levitt” and the word “Interested.” I am very, very, very excited if this is true....
