Warner Brothers Pictures Press Release Reveals THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Villains!!!   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

Chris Nolan has given us a realistic/gritty take on the Batman universe while staying true to certain comic storyline continuity, I really enjoyed Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. I thought that the Nolan Brothers and David Goyer fleshed out a great script, the action was kick ass, the villains were dark as is the storyline. After the success of Dark Knight it was no surprise when Chris Nolan finally signed on for a third and final go at the directing chair on Dark Knight Rises. After months and months of crazy casting rumors and heated discussions all over the web on who the villains would be in the new film, Warner Brothers Picture finally lets out a tit bit to keep the fan boys and girls at bay. Here’s the full press release below:

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” She will be starring alongside Christian Bale, who returns in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Christopher Nolan stated, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.”

In addition, Tom Hardy has been set to play Bane. Nolan said, “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.” Nolan will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan, from a story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner, Emma Thomas, and Charles Roven. “The Dark Knight Rises” is slated for release on July 20, 2012. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Well, there you go. On the Third Nolan Batman we get to see Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane.

(if you haven’t seen Tom Hardy in “Bronson” I urge you to take a look at that film. his performance is astounding. I can really see him as Bane after seeing “Bronson”). Not sure about Hathaway as Catwoman but Nolan has done a great job on the characters so far, beside the weird casting on both the female love interests. Holmes was just a little off compared to the rest of the stellar cast and her replacement Maggie Gyllenhaal seems to be the least “good looking” she’s ever been in any movie even though her acting was great in her small role. I’m sure Nolan will give us a superb finally to his Dark Knight Trilogy, I know I’ll be in the theater seats come July 20th 2012 to see Dark Knight Rising, the spectacle that will try and top 2008’s The Dark Knight. I’m very interested on how they plan do that. Very interested.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

Zack Snyder Snatches Superman Directing Gig   Leave a comment

Hey everybody,

Looks like Warner has finally picked Zack Snyder to direct their Christopher Nolan produced, David Goyer Scripted Superman flick.

Snyder (300, Watchmen, Suckerpunch, Legend Of Guardians: The Owl of Ga’Hoole ) beat out a long line of candidates for the job. Ben Affleck, Darren Aronofsky, Matt Reeves, Tony Scott and Robert Zemeckis were also rumored to be in the running according to a number of sources. The only few details on the movie so far are that Brandon Routh,who dawned the cape in 2006’s Superman Returns, will not be returning for this one and that the rumored villain may be General Zod, who was previously played by Terrance Stamp in 1980 ‘s Superman 2.

I think Snyder could definitely made a kick ass Superman movie.  I liked all his previous efforts so far, he always has great kinetic action sequences that look at action in a unique way. I’m more looking forward to Superman now that we know that a strong director is aboard the project. Just wondering now if Snyder will do Xerxes (300 sequel) first, which have rumored to be booking stage space here  in Vancouver already. Most likely he will be shooting one while prepping the other, Zack is a true workhorse. Will  definitely be keeping my eye on this one…

till next time
