This awful rumor about the next ‘Batman’ movie makes a disturbing amount of sense

Recent superhero movies have been bad. Really bad. First Batman v Superman, then Suicide Squad; it feels like a parade of bad plots that are just going through the motions between action sequences.

According to a third-hand rumor about the upcoming Batman movie, there could be a very good explanation for this: money, and where movies make it.

Ben Affleck reveals the name of his upcoming solo Batman movie

Despite the fact that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad combined to gross over $1.5 billion at the box office, it’s hard to consider them a success. Both movies were hyped beyond belief, but the critical reaction was incredibly harsh, with neither movie managing to top 30% on Rotten Tomatoes.

That’s not to say that the DC Extended Universe has no redeeming qualities. In fact, Ben Affleck’s Batman was praised in nearly every review I read, which is why everyone is so anxious to learn more about his solo Batman movie.

There are few developers that know how to handle an important property quite as well as Telltale Games. They did it with Back to the Future in 2012, The Walking Dead in 2012 plus Game of Thrones, Minecraft and Borderlands in 2015.

In 2016, the studio has its biggest challenge yet with Batman: The Telltale Series.

Batman The Killing Joke Trailer

There’s a new Batman movie that doesn’t star Ben Affleck and this is the first trailer

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a real eye opener for a lot of people. We published a few posts about how vast the disparity was between critics’ opinions and fans’ opinions on the movie, and we subsequently received a flood of emails from people telling us how much they loved the movie and how little they value the opinions of critics.

But even among people who loved Batman v Superman, not everyone enjoyed Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the caped crusader.

Well, we’ve got good news and bad news: the good news is that there’s a brand new R-rated Batman movie coming out later this year, and Ben Affleck won’t star as the Bat. The bad news is that no one will really star as Batman in this new film, because it’s animated. More →

Ben Affleck has written a script for a standalone ‘Batman’ movie

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been getting raked over the coals by critics ever since it hit theaters. Reviewers say the plot doesn’t make sense, the characters have no motivation and the tone is so dark that kids can’t even see it.

If there’s anything that has received consistent praise from fans and critics alike, it’s Ben Affleck’s performance as Batman. If you liked what you saw out of Affleck, you’re in luck — he’s written his own Batman movie. More →

Batman v Trump: This is the showdown we actually wanted to see

Batman v Trump: This is the showdown we actually wanted to see

As of this morning, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is sitting at a depressing 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. There are plenty of comic book fans that enjoy seeing a darker take on DC’s most popular heroes, but the movie clearly isn’t striking a chord with the audience the way Warner Bros. expected it to.

Sadly, it’s too late to go back and edit the movie, but one minor change might have made all the difference in the world: Replace Superman with Donald Trump.

That’s depressing, but thankfully for fans of the character, Dawn of Justice isn’t the only Batman movie that Warner Bros. has been working on. More →

Real Life Batcave

A ridiculously rich guy actually built Bruce Wayne’s underground Batcave – and it’s amazing

A ridiculously rich guy actually built Bruce Wayne’s underground Batcave – and it’s amazing

Readers… some things in life just aren’t fair. Case in point: some obnoxiously wealthy guy in Australia has a Batcave and you don’t.

Australian architectural firm Molecule recently posted about a special undertaking it completed not long ago. The firm’s client, who was not named in the post, asked it to reproduce Bruce Wayne’s underground garage from The Dark Knight series under his own home, while ensuring that the work avoided disturbing his home’s “heritage quality and evident beauty.”
