The last few DC Comics movies have been universally panned by critics and fans, so Warner Bros and Ben Affleck are making some changes to his Batman movie. Affleck will still star in it as Bruce Wayne and be a co-writer of the film, but he is no longer directing. In a statement, he explained why he stepped down.
“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world.”
I would say it is a loss if I had any intentions of seeing it, but I don’t. I don’t like how dark these movies have become, so when they lighten up I will be back there to see them. Til then, I will stick with Lego Batman!
Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel were reunited on his show yesterday and they posed for this photo. While the ABC late night host got an earful, the Oscar winner got a handful. As in Kimmel’s junk, so you have to wonder if they are still f*cking after all of these years? It is hard to debate otherwise. Nothing says your Bromance is something more when he has your balls in your hand. Does it?
While most people are excited to see Independence Day: Resurgence, Finding Dory or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows this Summer, I can’t wait to see Nine Lives on August 5th. After watching the second trailer for the meowelous family movie with Jennifer Garner, Kevin Spacey as a cat and Christopher Walken dancing, I am even happier than a kitty on catnip.
Maybe I am biased because Mr Fuzzypants and my cat are the same breed, but I think this looks like a great movie that everyone can enjoy this Summer and for many Summers to come.
