    Maybe the reason no one wanted to talk about them in the comics thread.... is that no one wants to talk about them.


    Any Marvel related movies will be awesome. Any DC related ones will blow.

    There won't be any new Batman movies for a while, I don't think. Allegedly, DC wants to do the opposite of Marvel's approach; team movie first, solo movies spinning out of it. If Man of Steel fails at the box office though.... You can kiss all those plans goodbye.

    According to those links in the first post there will be a Batman reboot in 2015. Why they'd do a reboot I could never guess.

    BEN AFFLECK REVEALED AS BATMAN IN WARNER BROS. PICTURES’ NEW SUPER HERO FEATURE FILM, NOW SLATED TO OPEN JULY 17, 2015

    BURBANK, CA, August 22, 2013 – Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in “Man of Steel.” The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

    The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.

    Last month’s surprise announcement of the new movie featuring both Superman and Batman created a wave of excitement and immediately fueled discussion and debate—among fans as well as in the media—about who would put on the cape and cowl of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.

    Snyder successfully re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster “Man of Steel,” which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together.

    Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

    In the announcement, Silverman stated, “We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”

    Snyder also expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”

    Kroll added, “We are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.’ remarkable legacy with the character of Batman. He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

    Affleck recently starred in the Academy Award®-winning Best Picture “Argo,” which he also directed and produced, earning acclaim and a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in the film, as well as a number of directing honors. In 2010, he starred in and directed the hit crime thriller “The Town.” His recent acting work also includes “The Company Men,” “State of Play,” and “Hollywoodland,” for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. Earlier in his career, Affleck starred in and co-wrote (with Matt Damon) “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay.

    The new Super Hero film is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers.

    Production is expected to begin in 2014

    I will admit, my initial reaction was one of those shameful "OMG What are they thinking ragemode gjieghaie" moments, but the more I think about it.... this could work out very well.

    It's one of those wait and see kinda things, I guess.

    i'm normally kinda okay with white-in-the-source-material characters being black in a hollywood movie...

    but what's really fucking pissing me off is they're trying to do the whole "adopted or blended family thing" where they're going to have a "brother and sister" being different races from each other, WTF??

    Sue and Johnny have always been biologicaly brother-and-sister
    why the fuck change that??

    what i mean is this, if the NAACP was somehow forcing you to put a black person in a Fantastic Four movie, maybe you could have had both Johnny and Sue be black where they're still biologically brother and sister, or maybe have the guy playing ben grimm be a black pro football player in his acting debut or something

    i think hollywood is going to do away with the whole concept of "original screenplay"


    for the year 2012, 9 of the 10 highest-grossing movies of the year (USA made movies movies, USA Box office) were based on pre-existing source material

    in addition to making an endless number of books/comic books into movies

    it seems that everything is getting sequels/prequels/re-boots/re-makes

    i think that "the original screenplay" (at least in USA) is about to die

    i wanna know everyone elses thoughts on this

    I've been hearing this argument for a number of years now, and I still don't believe it. There's always going to be awesome and fresh movies out there, even if they don't hit the top 10 of the year.

    And when it comes to Super-hero movies, I actually don't really give a crap about most of the marvel films. I've probably seen more of the DC movies than Marvel ones.

    Although, Guardians Of The Galaxy looks cool. At least we're hitting a point where stranger comics can hit the big screen.

    Gravity wasn't based off any pre-existing material (not to my knowledge anyway) and that was one of the best movies I've ever seen.

    Marvel makes much better movies than DC. Everything is interconnected and actually feels like a living universe, characterizations are (usually) spot on, origins and stories are (for the most part) pretty faithful to the source material, all of the movies so far just seem like so much more fun, not to mention the damn near perfect casting. DC on the on the other hand has done pretty much everything wrong. Making Superman gritty, ignoring The Dark Knight trilogy, the fact that the Green Lantern movie exists, and some questionable casting choices keep them far behind Marvel in my opinion.


    But they both make better superhero movies than Fox. I cannot wait for the day (if it ever comes) that Marvel gets all of their properties back and can finally give us a good X-Men movie.


    The actual reason I came here was to complain about Fox's Fantastic Four casting, but I'm just going to ignore that movie entirely, so whatever. :lol:

    I've heard the X-men movies lately have been good though.

    I liked a lot of parts of the Superman movie, but some of it was a little weird. Them just ignoring The Dark Knight trilogy isn't really all their fault though, Bale won't don the costume again so they just gotta move on and cast again.

    I also don't care much for Loki. He was cool in The Avengers, but now he's just everywhere whenever I see stuff about the Marvel movies. I can't remember a single villain from just about any Marvel film, except that guy.

    Looking at the casting for Fantastic Four... they're kinda young but it could be worse. It could be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. I love Jesse as an actor but... why couldn't they have gotten Bryan Cranston?!
