The “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” may have finally shot Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill together in a “historic” photo shoot. Cinematographer Larry Fong shared an image of “Batman vs. Superman” photographer Clay Enos on set. Enos didn’t reveal any details about the photo shoot, but Fong shared his reaction to seeing the “historic” moment. “Not gonna lie; I got a bit of the chills there for a second,” Fong wrote on his Twitter. However, don’t expect any photos to “leak” online before the production is ready to release the images..
The upcoming San Diego Comic-Con might just go down as the most anticipated convention up to date. DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are expected to announce big revelations which will further solidify the image of this decade as “golden era of superhero films”.
Just a few weeks ago, a well-known insider Nikki Finke revealed the line-up and release dates of WB and DC’s upcoming films. She has listed Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice coming in 2016; a rumored release schedule points to Shazam and Sandman releasing that same year; Justice League, Wonder Woman and a Flash/Green Lantern film in 2017; capped off by Man of Steel 2 in 2018. Some might be asking if there will be a continuation to The Dark Knight or if Batman’s story has finally reached its conclusion.
According to Latino Review, ‘what we recently discussed on the #SRUnderground DCU podcast is indeed coming to pass: Batman will be rebooted in 2019, in a solo film titled The Batman. LR lays out a logical line for why this is happening this way – as opposed to launching Batman (the company’s strongest brand) in the nearer future – and it looks like this:’
-New Batman Ben Affleck presumably has Batman V Superman production tying him up until 2015.
-He directs his delayed project, Live By Night, in 2015 for 2016 release.
-He’s back in the cowl for Justice League in late 2015/2016.
-By 2017, Justice League promotion is done, film is in theaters, and Affleck can turn attention to The Batman.
Another hint that The Dark Knight is already out of the picture is that The Dark Knight star Joseph Gordon-Levitt who was hinted as Robin, is in fact developing a Sandman movie.
As of the moment, there are no concrete validations that Affleck will direct the Batman reboot along with starring in it; but a multi-Oscar-winning writer/director like Ben Affleck would definitely be in the running. After Batman V Superman and Justice League, he’ll probably have a good handle on the character – and he has never failed to amuse fans with his ability to create the sort of hard-boiled detective Noir film we’d want as a fresh adaptation of the character.
David Fincher’s film version of Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck, will make its world premiere as the opening night gala screening at this year’s New York Film Festival, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The film features Rosamund Pike as a woman who mysteriously vanishes, with her husband (Affleck) suspected of killing her, and is based on Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel. Flynn wrote the screenplay for the movie, which Reese Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard is producing alongside New Regency. 20th Century Fox is set to release the movie Oct. 3.
“Gone Girl is so many things at once: sharp as a razor about many aspects of American life that have been untouched by movies, very tough and just as funny, brilliantly acted, and 100% entertaining — a wild ride from start to finish,” New York Film Festival director and selection committee chair Kent Jones said in a press release officially announcing the news on Thursday. “In short, a great American movie based on a literary phenomenon, directed by one of the best filmmakers alive. I’m so proud to have the world premiere of this film as our opening night.”
Gone Girl also stars Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry.
The festival also announced that its opening night after-party would return to Tavern on the Green, the famous Central Park restaurant that served as the site of the festival’s opening night after-parties until the eatery closed in 2009. Tavern on the Green was reopened in May.
Last year’s opening-night screening at the festival was Captain Phillips, which went on to earn six Oscar nods, including a best picture nomination. Last year’s festival also featured screenings of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in its centerpiece spot and Her as the closing night film. In addition, screenings of future Oscar contenders 12 Years a Slave and Nebraska also took place at the festival.
The festival is seen as an important stop in awards season. Fincher’s The Social Network opened the festival in 2010.
The 52nd annual New York Film Festival runs Sept. 26-Oct. 12. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Sunday, Sept. 7, but members of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, which puts on the festival, have access to an exclusive pre-sale period, beginning July 31.
There’s a very good chance that, by the end of next week, we will have a legitimateBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer to share with you guys. Warner Bros. is hosting a massive panel from the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, and while Zack Snyder’s title isn’t officially on the roster, you know there’s no way possible the studio can let a Hall H presentation float by without bringing something from one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the near future. Until then, we stumbled on this totally fake, but still chill-inducing fan-made trailer, to get you even more amped up for the possibility of next week’s reveal.
The YouTube user BvS Teaser cobbled this together, cleverly using General Zod’s pirate-radio telecast from Man of Steel to suggest how Ben Affleck’s caped crusader might be brought into the fold in the Batman v Superman team up. You remember when Zod tried to strike fear in the hearts of the Earth’s population by letting them know that there is an alien living amongst us?
The actor who plays the Caped Crusader in the upcoming “Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice” film surprised a group of children at a Detroit-area superhero party. Ben Affleck, 41, and his actress wife, Jennifer Garner, 42, stopped Sunday at Detroit Kid City in Southfield and asked if they and their 2-year-old son, Samuel, could join the party. The Detroit Free Press says the family welcomed the visitors. Affleck is in Detroit for the filming of the Warner Bros. Pictures movie. The movie’s release is set for May 2016. The indoor Detroit Kid City features a kid-sized market, cabin, auto factory, schoolhouse and other buildings. Detroit Kid City worker Garrett Dixon says Affleck “was very interested in getting a Detroit Kid City out in LA.” Affleck and Garner have three kids together: Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
In the trailer, Affleck’s character, Nick Dunn — whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing — is grilled about his wife’s disappearance, as a reporter (Sela Ward) tells him he’s “probably the most hated man in America right now. Did you kill your wife, Nick?” Amy’s diary entries are read in voiceover, and she is seen in flashback. “I feel like something to be jettisoned if necessary,” she says. “I feel like I could disappear.”
It will be one of the most awaited blockbusters in movie history.
And director Zack Snyder has been giving up more details about 2016?s Batman Versus Superman: Dawn Of Justice blockbuster starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as the superheroes.
Interestingly, Snyder revealed that the two heroes will be at odds for part of the movie and that Superman will leave Metropolis and head-off to Gotham City to fight some crime.
The publicity team behind the blockbuster have just released a new poster of Cavill as the ‘Man Of Steel’ while Snyder hinted that Affleck’s Batman could be ‘older and weathered’ … all interesting stuff.
It remains to be seen if the talented director can keep Marvel comic book fans happy while delivering at the box-office too.
Who’s better, Superman or Batman? Zack Snyder doesn’t have to choose a favorite since he’s getting to put both on the big screen at the same time.
The director of last year’s Man of Steel doubles down on A-list superheroes in his follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (in theaters May 6, 2016), teaming a returning Henry Cavill as the big guy in the cape and “S” on his chest with Ben Affleckas the latest cinematic incarnation of the Dark Knight.
By bringing in more DC Comics do-gooders such as Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) andCyborg (Ray Fisher), the new movie is thicker, denser and more epic than Man of Steel, according to Snyder. And it’s also the next step toward building a strong movie universe that ultimately leads to Snyder’s Justice League, the supergroup answer to Marvel’s The Avengers, tentatively scheduled for a 2018 release.
Now filming in Detroit, Dawn of Justice is pretty much a thrill every day for the admitted comic fan. “It’s not an un-fun job, I will say that,” Snyder says.
Man of Steel was all about Superman finding his place in the world as both a hero and as a man, ultimately saving the city of Metropolis from certain doom. Dawn of Justice continues to immerse him on Earth by working at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent along with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). But it also takes him to new environments such as Gotham City and introduces larger threats, including Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).
Really digging in and evolving the character — both as Clark and as Superman — is a challenge, Snyder says, but there’s also “the fun of trying to figure out what to put in front of him that’s difficult.”
Cavill is definitely more comfortable in the role the second time around, says the director.
“We’ve both created this guy and we can push him around a little bit,” he says. “The more time I spend with Henry, the more he’s Superman to me.”
The debuting heroes Superman meets will affect his perspective on Earth and on the ones he loves, and Snyder feels his convictions will be drawn into question as well.
When developing Man of Steel, Snyder didn’t harbor dreams of one day putting Batman on screen, too — he figured he’d one day tackle an adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal 1980s masterpiece The Dark Knight Returns, which pits a retired Batman against government agent Superman.
It ultimately made sense with Dawn of Justice to add Bruce Wayne and his cowled alter ego to the mix. Because of Christopher Nolan’s recent Dark Knight trilogy, “I was in no rush to put Batman in the movie,” Snyder says, “but on the other hand it seemed organic the way our story was unfolding to start to feather him in.”
Instead of using several movies to define Affleck’s Batman, Snyder felt the character’s 75-year mythology is so deep in culture now that they can just jump to an older, road-weary take on the Dark Knight. Plus, he says, “it’s cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys.”
The director can’t say exactly how the relationship between the two superheroes evolves, “but suffice it to say there is a ‘v’ in between their names” in the movie title, Snyder says. He explains that having the “v” instead of “vs.” is a way “to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”
Snyder’s only done a few scenes so far with Cavill and Affleck together, but the historical significance isn’t lost on him, he says. “It’s never really been done and it’s kinda cool.”
Similarly, Snyder also knows that putting the iconic superheroine Wonder Woman on a movie screen is a big deal, too. He says he hasn’t filmed any scenes with Gadot as the Amazonian princess yet, but “she’s working out and getting buff and ripped.”
While Snyder is surprised in a way that fans are already so pumped for Dawn of Justice, he also understands the anticipation.
“You can talk all you want about other superhero movies, but it’s Batman and Superman, let’s just be honest,” Snyder says. “I don’t know how you get bigger than that.”
