Ben Affleck is perhaps Hollywood’s biggest and most diverse superstar

As big a star as Ben Affleck is, I’m sure he gets the credit that he deserves. Not only is he an A-list Hollywood talent, he’s an acclaimed and award winning filmmaker. Affleck is part of superhero blockbusters, prestige fare, and everything in between. Throw in his charity work and[...]

Why are the blockbusters this summer not up to snuff?

I’m hardly the first one to mention it, but it’s clear to me that the summer blockbusters this year have been, well…lacking. That might be being kind too. It feels like one of the worst slates ever, at least the most disappointing. Almost every single week, something comes out that[...]

Warner Brothers hopes to right their DC ship with “Suicide Squad”

“Suicide Squad” shows off another impressive Trailer

2016 is shaping up to be a very interesting year for the comic book/superhero genre. On the one hand, we’ve already seen Deadpool set some box office records and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice open to a ton of discussion and mixed reception, with Captain America: Civil War headed[...]

Ben Affleck is the perfect choice to direct a new “Batman” film

Late last week, word came around during San Diego Comic-Con that finally confirmed something that I’d basically been assuming for a year or so. Ben Affleck would be getting his own Batman film, but he’s also going to be co-writing and directing that stand alone project. I’ve long been a[...]

“Suicide Squad” is shaping up to be one of the most interesting upcoming superhero movies

At the very tail end of the weekend, filmmaker David Ayer unveiled his first look at most of the costumed cast of Suicide Squad, his DC superhero/anti-hero/villain movie that’s scheduled to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year.
