Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice may have been a hot mess, but Ben Affleck's portrayal of the Dark Knight was a glimmering beacon of hope for the future of the big screen DC universe.
Now, it looks like the Caped Crusader is set to fly solo — because Warner Bros. confirmed it is developing a standalone Batman film!
At the studio's CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed that the actor would star in a solo Batman film and hinted at what many have long suspected — that the Oscar-winner will be directing!
Last month, it was reported that Ben had written a "really cool" solo Batman script — so it doesn't come as much of a surprise the writer-director of Gone Baby Gone and The Town would be at the helm.
Though he didn't specifically state that
Don't get us wrong, Jared Leto looks absolutely AH-Mazing as the Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie — especially after that most recent trailer!
That being said, we're not sure we would ever want to film with the 30 Seconds to Mars singer as he apparently goes to crazy and DISGUSTING lengths to get into character!
A couple of months ago, Viola Davis dished that Leto sent his costars a dead pig, and before that Margot Robbie said the Oscar winner gifted her with a live rat in a box all to stay in character. Talk about twisted!
Well Jared was on hand at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last night and he revealed to E! News that he also sent his costars — which also include Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, and Joel Kinnaman — USED condoms and anal beads!
YUCK. The 44-year-old went on to say:
We haven't had a box office fight this close in a long, long time!
And according to box office numbers available today — which might be revised tomorrow as final totals come in — the race between the two flicks for the top spot is REALLY close!!!
As of Sunday afternoon, just $46,000 separated the two flicks at the box office, with
Despite negative critic reviews, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice still had a pretty explosive first weekend at the box office, setting the March record with $166.1 million domestic opening.
But after that the superhero team up had a HUGE drop off — 69 percent to be exact, a drop largely attributed to poor word of mouth.
While we're still waiting to see if the DC comic flick will turn a profit after its rumored $250 million budget and $150 million in advertising, it's clear the movie won't be quite the success Warner Bros hoped for.
Rampant speculation that WB might not release quite as many movies as a result of the disappointment — along with recent cape-less failures
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck continue to defy expectations!
After months of back and forth compliments and stellar coparenting, The Sun is reporting that the amicable exes have purchased a home in London together. According to a "Hollywood insider", Ben and Jen want to maintain their super close family while the actor shoots Justice League: Part One beginning April 11.
While the move might seem strange to most divorced couples, it's actually no big surprise in light of Affleck and Garner's friendship. The pair have been buddy buddy ever since they split this past June, a major accomplishment after allegations of cheating surfaced.
Confirming the parents' closeness, the source explained:
What negative reviews?
The most recent superhero blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn't exactly been the success that Warner Brothers hoped it would be, but that might not stop a certain vigilante from getting his own spin-off!
Despite an incredible box office take, not only has the cast and the director Zack Snyder had to defend the film, but some fans have even started a petition to get Snyder removed from helming The Justice League: Part One.
Well, if you hated the movie but enjoyed Ben Affleck's debut as Batman, then we've got some great news — because it sounds like he's itching to make his very own solo Batman flick!
In a recent interview with Hollywood Reporter, WME-IMG's co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell revealed exactly how many more times Ben is contracted to appear as The Dark Knight, saying:
OMG, this looks like SO much more fun that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
Last week we got the premiere of one of the biggest superhero movies of all time, but it wasn't nearly as exciting as the premiere of the trailer for Bridget Jones's Baby!
One we would TOTALLY watch, btw!
