While everyone is still debating whether or not Ben Affleck will make a good Batman in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2,' which will feature a "Batman vs. Superman" element, we can tell you who was almost cast: Josh Brolin, who confirms that he was considered for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming sequel. Obviously, it didn't work out, but Brolin doesn't have any hard feelings about it.
With the announcement that Ben Affleck will play the Dark Knight in the Batman and Superman-centric 'Man of Steel 2,' it reminds us how many actors were rumored or have played the part. Disregarding Batmans past, like Michael Keaton and George Clooney, there were a number of actors in contention. But who would you like to see play Batman in the movie?
We're just a few of months away from the release of Spike Lee's 'Oldboy,' a remake of Park Chan-wook's insta-classic South Korean tale of suffering and revenge. FilmDistrict released some new, hi-res photos today to give us a peek at some of the film's major players -- including Samuel L. Jackson with a blonde afro-mohawk.
It was announced at Comic-Con 2013 that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' will feature a Batman vs. Superman fight in the vein of Frank Miller's graphic novel 'The Dark Knight Returns,' so the big question is, of course, who will play Batman? The script for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2' is still being written, so it's a bit early for Warner Bros. to start meeting with prospective actors for the role, but sources claim they have a few ideas.
Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' changed some skeptical minds when the red-band trailer hit earlier this month. Looking like a faithful and intense remake, the trailer got us thinking that the movie might be a thriller worthy of our time after all. But, now comes the news that it's release date has been pushed back, and this isn't the first time. Should we be concerned?
Released from a several-year prison sentence, a man must find the mysterious figure who took his life away.
The worst thing a remake of Park Chan-Wook's incredible 'Oldboy' can be is generic, which is why a newly released poster for Spike Lee's upcoming remake has, for the first time, filled us with true optimism about the project. The fact that an official one-sheet for the film is this bizarre leads up to believe that (maybe, perhaps, hopefully) the final film will be as insane as the Korean original. Fingers crossed, folks.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill for' is shooting now, and director Robert Rodriguez -- much like Bryan Singer -- knows how to use twitter to keep people interested in his upcoming projects. He's just tweeted some photos from the set that show some of the before and after process of making the film. The latest photos feature Josh Brolin.
Dirty Harry would love 'Gangster Squad,' a movie about cops who operate so far outside the law they make Clint Eastwood's signature detective look like a pencil-pushing dweeb. Assembled by LAPD police chief Bill Parker (Nick Nolte), and supposedly inspired by a true story, the members of the so-called Gangster Squad operate as judge, jury, and executioners. They don't arrest their targets; they "wage war" against their enemy, mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). In their quest to bust up Cohen's rackets, the Gangster Squad brandishes about a billion guns and not a single badge. Hell, even Dirty Harry waited until the end of his movie to toss his away.
