'Batman' Negotiations Break Down With Director Matt Reeves

https://archive.is/kpuqO

A week after entering negotiations to direct The Batman, Matt Reeves has exited the talks, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

A studio source confirms that negotiations have broken down. The possibility, however, exists that talks could resume when heads cool. The studio is intent on making the movie no matter what, as the Batman franchise has proven to be bigger than one person.

tfw you've ruined your entire life

Now Warner is intent on ruining the lives of everyone else.

Liam Robinson

I can't even imagine the butt hurt going on at the studio right now.

Lego Batman more or less shat on everything DC is trying to do and looks like it's going to be super successful. And just like all comic companies they'll find a way to fuck it up despite fans screaming exactly what they want.

Aiden Kelly
Aiden Kelly

I still don't understand why DC doesn't just adapt comic stories and personalities instead of doing what they have been doing.

Is it so hard to make Superman fun, and lovable, while making Batman the dark and brooding one who has trust issues?

Carson Sanders
Carson Sanders

This is what happens when you shove out a movie franchise just to keep from paying the Siegel's royalties.

Look it up. Warner rushed Man of Steel into production because a court ruled in 2009 that if they didn't get a film into production by 2011, the Siegel's could sue for lost revenue on an unproduced film.

Brayden Lee
Brayden Lee

It's because the executives think they know better. Batman V Superman was literally a check list of what the execs thought people wanted out of a superhero film.

Combine that with bottom of the barrel directors and you have a hot steaming mess.

Jaxon Jackson
Jaxon Jackson

the Siegel's could sue for lost revenue on an unproduced film.
It was more substantial than that. I seem to remember the court ruled if Warners didn't make a film by 2011, the Siegels would get the rights to make their own film.

Ryder Campbell

I still don't understand why DC doesn't just adapt comic stories and personalities instead of doing what they have been doing.
That is what they've been doing. There's been a conscious effort to make this shit like the New 52.

Stop being so childish goy, dark and edgy is what adults want, everything else is for immature children.

Brandon Barnes

They actually haven't, the cartoons have and that's basically ruined them. I haven't bothered with any mainstream direct-to-video films in ages.
Perhaps that was the better timeline…

Connor Bell
Connor Bell

They actually haven't
They have. The aesthetics are all New 52. The President of DC Diane Nelson, who by the way knows fuck all about comics and doesn't read them, wanted to create better brand synergy between the comics, the TV shows, the cartoons and the films, and maybe the video games too. That's part of the reason why you've got the New 52 Justice League line-up, the other reason is that David Goyer is retarded and doesn't 'get' Martian Manhunter.

Josiah Parker
Josiah Parker

Your image is shit. Robocop was already dark and edgy and Adams-era Batman was not far off.

Chase Rivera

The original RoboCop is dark, but it's also humorous, and doesn't take itself completely seriously. How does the remake compare to that?

Brandon Ross

Oh shit, I just heard they've got some budget horror movie director to do Sha-… Fuck, I can't call it that. The film with Captain Marvel.

Ryder James

It's not comparable. With Transformers, Superman and Power Rangers they took something light-hearted, fun and colourful and turned them into grim, over-saturated edge fests. Robocop was already pretty grim, if anything the PG-13 remake was less grim than the original. It was shit, I won't argue that, but it was considerably toned down from the original.

Liam Perry
Liam Perry

I've long ago resigned myself to the reality that if they ever make this Captain Marvel movie, it will likely be another Jonah Hex.

Ryan Morgan

There's been a conscious effort to make this shit like the New 52.

They're trying to make it more like the comics, at least as an executive sees them.

I'm certain there was executives at Warner screaming that they needed TDKR stuff in Batman V Superman because "fans love it".

Jordan White

Apparently the Rock will be in it too if that makes you feel worse.

Julian Rogers

The Robocop remake is not as bad as people make it up to be. It still holds a little of the social critic from the first, even if very tame in comparasion. But really, it wouldn't be that bad if the studio hadn't shitted on it so much.

Look on the development, they pretty much rewrote the whole script mid filming and the director almost quit on it because the studio kept demanding stupid stuff. He also sneaked a little jab at the studio: in the movie they have a marketing team come with Robocop's look based on popular feedback and it's pretty much the 80s design, but the owner of the company (Michael Keaton character) scraps it and tells them to make him black and tatical. When the marketing guy tries to argue that they did a whole research on what the public prefers, Michael Keatons answers: "Fuck that. The public doesn't know what they want untill we give it to them!"

Luke Taylor

The Rock is strangely the only optimistic part of the project, since I know he'll bring some levity to the movie.

Still, I think we can rule can rule out anything as fun as Captain Sivana.

Execs wanted to repeat success of Nolan films. That's why Goyer is writing everything, and they tried to make Nolan be the director in charge of the whole thing.

wanted to create better brand synergy between the comics, the TV shows, the cartoons and the films
Movies would be far better if they actually took inspiration from Batman and Justice League cartoons. Hell, even making Batman film based on Arkham Asylum game would be better than current films.

Julian Roberts

All he ever wanted was to play Batman
Made the Daredevil movie, and gave up hope after the directors ruined it completely, thinking no one would trust him as a superhero ever again
Goes on with his life
15 years later he begins making good/great movies again
Gathers enough notoriety to be considered for Batman
He gets the role
What he's dreamed for most of his life gets to come true
He sits and watches as WB slowly rapes and destroys the entirety of DC leading up to his Batman movie
He now has front row seats to his dream role being completely fucked

political purposes

Source? First I've heard that.

If it had been even slightly more like the New 52, it would've been far better than what we have now.

The New 52 gave us Morrison's Action Comics, Greg Pak's take on Superman, even Lobdell came up with some good shit, even if he fucked it on execution. That Superman would've been a hell of a lot more interesting, and a hell of a lot less incompetent and flat that the one we got. Even the animated movies scored right on that front.

Hell, I'll take Snyder's Court of Owls saga and that Batman Eternal shit over anything the movies gave us. If anything, the DC movies are "written by committee" personified, except the committee is made of douchebags in business suits who don't have a clue and don't care.

If there's one good thing about this whole shitshow, it's that the suits in charge of raping our collective childhoods are mostly likely gonna lose their jobs over this.

The Argo director and star was asked by CBS News’ Bob Schieffer in a segment for the next Face The Nation about his name being bandied about among others for a U.S. Senate run in his native Massachusetts. A seat could open up if John Kerry is nominated and becomes Secretary of State. Affleck is a serious political activist, founding the Eastern Congo Initiative and campaigning for now-Sen. Elizabeth Warren during the last election cycle. And that’s not counting Argo, the awards-season stalwart that shines a spotlight on U.S.-Iran relations. Interestingly, he never really answers Scheiffer’s question of whether he’d run, saying he’s “got a lot on his plate” (in fact, his response makes one think of the “non-denial denial” scene in All The President’s Men). But really, why would Affleck, a whip-smart guy who’s quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s best directors and has the platform to speak on any topic he wants, give up his lofty perch for a place inside the Beltway, where everything is such a slog?
https://web.archive.org/web/20170219065754/https://deadline.com/2012/12/ben-affleck-senate-rumors-face-the-nation-video-392753/

In truth, I think the thing that hurts Ben Affleck the most is his political activism. How many people will look at him and think, “This Batman told me John Kerry should have been president in a post 9/11 world and that John Edwards was a trustworthy guy,” — or some other reaction based on his political talk show appearances?
How can moviegoers see Affleck as a blank slate going into the theater when they’ve had to put up with his activism for years?
In this past presidential election Mr. Affleck was more muted, saying his feelings for the president were “complicated.” (i.e., I got duped in 2008 and don’t want to admit it.) However, from now until July 17, 2015, how many times will he lecture the American people on climate change, taxes, immigration or a whole host of public policy issues? Even his wife believes he’ll be running for office in the not-too-distant future. If I were a betting man, I’d say that Mr. Affleck will continue saying and doing things in public that will make it harder for roughly half the nation to lose themselves in his version of “Batman” on opening night. In that sense, Warner Bros. made an unwise decision.

Ben Affleck traveled to Washington D.C. Thursday to offer testimony before the U.S. Senate about the importance of foreign aid in Africa, citing his philanthropic efforts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but he also stopped to reference his upcoming Batman film.

I am so fucking sick of celebrities getting on their soap box and using their fame to try and pretend like they know anything about politics. Stating an opinion when asked in an interview is fine, donating to charities is fine, whatever, but as soon as a celebrity starts actively getting involved in politics and doing shit like him or Emma Watson or a number of other celebrities, they need to be told to sit down and shut up.
Though I feel this way about businessmen, too. I fucking wish people wouldn't think that having fame and/or fortune means that they're suddenly a goddamn politician. People involved in politics who don't know anything about law or how the government works are a fucking cancer that only make our government worse than it already is.

I guess you haven't seen the kicker yet (Batfleck 2013 interview with PlayBoy):
https://web.archive.org/web/20131211220518/http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2013/12/09/ben-affleck-republican-actors-i-probably-wouldn-t-person-if-i-met-him

PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about?
AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I brought them with me when I showed up in Hollywood. In 2000 the Gore campaign said, “Hey, would you come do this with us?” And I did. I thought I had a responsibility, so I campaigned for Gore. Kerry was a Boston guy, and I felt an organic connection. And then Obama in 2008. Over time I became disillusioned, mostly with the pernicious effect of money in politics. I realized it was about raising $56,000 through a couple of dinners and those bundlers who bring in $1 million or $2 million. Those people are dedicated, and they believe in what they’re doing. I believe in why many of them are doing it. What I don’t believe in is that we now have the need to do it. And for me personally, it started to feel gross.
PLAYBOY: What part?
AFFLECK: Being used as a prop to schmooze people and try to milk the teat of the donor for money. We’d do it sparingly. Matt and I did a thing for Elizabeth Warren, whom we like and who won. We did a fund-raiser for Cory Booker, whom we also like. People now know me as a Democrat, and that will always be the case to some extent.
PLAYBOY: Does that polarize viewers?
AFFLECK: It does, and you can bifurcate your audience. When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That shit fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion.
PLAYBOY: Still, won’t that happen whether you take positions on candidates or causes?
AFFLECK: I have misgivings about it, counterbalanced with the larger things I care about. I don’t blindly do this stuff when it makes it harder to do my own job. And there’s an awful lot of gross money-raising going on that has made me want to pull back a bit from pure electoral politics. […]
PLAYBOY: Will you campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2016?
AFFLECK: I haven’t abandoned it, but I look at working in politics again with a more jaundiced eye. Hillary does excite me, in the same way the potent symbolism of the first African American president was what thrilled people about Obama. It’s similar with Hillary and gender equality. The idea that 100 years after women got the right to vote, to have a woman president would be exciting.

Henry Ortiz

You can almost sorta see him dangling on the edge where he's sorta realizing that it's all horseshit and blind bread and circuses, but he keeps pulling back. I have a strong feeling that if his stint in DC fails and his career goes back under, he's gonna end up in a Robert Downey Jr. transformation.

Mason Edwards
Mason Edwards

Nah, it's not.
If you actually watch it, it's a 6/10, maybe even a 7. If you only listen to /tv/ or have the nostalgia goggles strapped tightly on, you're not going to like it. If you go in expecting a guy turned into a robot shooting people, you get exactly what you want.

based on the arkham asylum game
Please no. That would be god awful and filled with normalfags wanting it to be a trilogy, plus prequel with shot-for-shot from the games with a bunch of shitty jokes that reference it being a game so they can feel in charge.

Don't be silly. In the real world, you get to watch the rape and pay for the privilege of sitting through it.
What's the source? Is that the same show I saw the webm about the guy who has constant nightmares of being raped in a prison?

Cavill is actually a good Superman. I just wish they got him better lines for Clark instead of shitty MUH FARTHUR MUH LOHIS.
Shame all his co-stars are hacks that got in by sucking people off.

Gavin Wilson

Cavill is actually a good Superman. I just wish they got him better lines for Clark instead of shitty MUH FARTHUR MUH LOHIS.

He acts good and looks great. In both parts, though I wish that they dumbed him up a bit more for Clark.
And didn't give him the ridiculous fake abs.

Michael James

What's the source?
It's an anime called "Monster," one of the best shows I've seen. It distinctly non-Japanese. No moe little girls or giant robots or school festivals. It's about a (Japanese) doctor who accidentally saves the life of a complete psychopath, and decides that, as the person who gave him life, he is responsible to hunt him down. It's good enough that there's an article in the New York Times bitching about people discounting it just because it's Japanese.

A reminder that while I liked the dub, the only full version of it in existence is the torrent online when one guy ripped it from live TV off of the sci-fi channel. They don't even sell the full series in DVDs to rip the dub off of. The quality of the webms is what you'll be forced to watch for the dub.

He looks so smug as Clark in that image. Wew.
To be fair, isn't that the first time he shows up in front of people as "Clark"? Wouldn't you be smug as fuck realizing people were too stupid to see through your disguise?

Dominic White

Nigger, I have spent over a year of my life in front of my TV watching anime. When I say it's distinctly "Non-Japanese," I'm saying there is nothing that would identify this as a Japanese show if I told you about it. Literally the ONLY thing that makes is sound Japanese is that fact that the main character is from there, and even then there's absolutely no plot points, character traits or ANYTHING that actually effect the show from him being Japanese. You could redraw this frame-for-frame and called him "John Smith," and no one would ever think it was from Japan.

Jose Martinez
Jose Martinez

You could say literally the same thing for a lot of other anime. What's the point in noting it?

Because the amount of good anime you could actually do that for number somewhere under 10, and most people who aren't from /a/ get turned off by the stupid bullshit the Nips like to inject in their shows

Anthony Nelson

Things that would've fixed Cavill's Superman:

zero brooding, more smartass one-liners and reveling in being MOTHERFUCKING SUPERMAN. Give the dude some personality that doesn't revolve around his dad or Lois, for fuck's sake
all of his powers and abilities, instead of powering him down to STAS levels, and omitting shit like freeze breath and infrared vision
get rid of the kryptonian atmosphere bullshit, dude already has enough weaknesses, especially since they introduced kryptonite anyway in the sequel after saying that no, we won't do it, and just make him solar-powered like in the comics
Lana Lang is his first love interest, you can start building it all the way from his Smallville days, especially since Goyer was basically ripping off Batman Begins anyway, and get someone young and hot for the role instead of a dried-up hag like Adams. Save Lois for a sequel or something. Or get creative, and actually have the balls to try something else
Brainiac is the villain instead of freaking Zod for the umpteenth time
seriously, they even found a way to shove Ursa and Non in there
less ghost dad Jor-El
Jonathan Kent isn't a douche and doesn't die in a goddamn tornado. I mean, shit, they ripped off the Zod, Ursa and Non trio anyway, might as well have gone the full hog with the heart attack again. Or, I don't know, cancer. Hell, kill both Kents. That's how Superman's origin was anyway, right up until Byrne changed it
Superman does heroic shit BEFORE Brainiac shows up. I don't care if it's in disguise, I want him kicking mobster/terrorist ass, and stopping natural disasters at least a bit before the main threat arrives
get someone who can actually make cool fight scenes with all of the numerous alien powers that Superman and Brainiac have
Superman is the one who comes up with the clever plan to defeat the big bad, not a bunch of second-string supporting characters that nobody gives a shit about. Give the dude a chance to showcase his brains
save the neck-snapping, edgy shit for a sequel, not the origin story which is supposed to be fun and optimistic

Cavill would've fucking killed it with a better script. But no, he had to land in this shitheap instead.

I kind of preferred if both his parents were alive like in the DCAU. Its nice seeing them and it helps distinguish him from Batman and other heroes*Flash* who seem to do the whole my parents are dead thing nowadays.

Jace Powell
Jace Powell

Flash's family isn't meant to be dead, though, that was Geoff Johns' retardation. He is one of the few comic heroes whose entire family is meant to be all good and well.

Superman's parents being alive is merely an excuse for retarded scenarios where Clark runs home every fucking time there's a moral conundrum to get reassurance that he's a good boy. Instead of acting like a grown-ass man. Not to mention, the difference between Superman and Batman is that Batman continues to be a whiny bitch boy about his parents well into his adulthood, while Superman's parents merely passed away and he accepted it as a part of life.

Yeah, I was kinda surprised at how much I liked Russel Crowe in the role. But I still thought he was too involved in the plot, to the point of being a freakin' Deus Ex Machina.

Blake Cruz
Blake Cruz

That is so comfy fam. Thanks.

Superman's parents merely passed away and he accepted it as a part of life.
I guess that could work. Agree with you on Russel Crow I was surprised at how good he was. If they were hell bent on using Zod then I think it would've worked better if they tried a pesudo-father figure angel since he could teach Clark more about Krypton.

The best part of the whole fucking movie was the Krypton part. A lone scientist fighting against a coup of the government to save his planet, with him using a pet dragon to evade the sci-fi police ships? That shit could have been a whole movie in itself.

If they were hell bent on using Zod then I think it would've worked better if they tried a pesudo-father figure angel since he could teach Clark more about Krypton.

I was honestly surprised at how quickly Clark goes "Zod is pure evil! I must stop him!" in the movie. There's not the slightest bit of conflict, I mean fuck dude, your entire race is extinct and you just now find out that there's a ship full of survivors. You'd think it'd be elementary script writing 101 to milk that scenario for drama for all its worth (Clark going from blissful naivety at having his people back to a gradual horrific realization that Zod intends to genocide humanity to build a new Krypton and his resulting emotional turmoil at having to struggle between his adopted home and his biological home), yet they managed to fuck up even that. Makes you wonder just what the hell was going on behind the scenes when they were making that film.

Jaxson Brown

The suits never lose their jobs. A bunch of lower downs will get sacked, Snyder and Goyer might, we might even be lucky and see Geoff Johns totally BTFO, and Ben Affleck's career is probably dead again, but the suits will carry on. They're faceless, nameless and pointless, but you can bet they'll be allowed to fuck up whatever comes next.

You know, the one where the films at least got made.

Didn't even know that had been animated. I went to an exhibition by the creator in Osaka a while back, they had about 50 pages of the original art for Monster alone on the walls. He also did a series called Billy Bat, about a "more cartoony" Batman who really exists as some sort of ancient evil that manifests in art through the ages. And a tennis story, too.

If you liked that you'd probably dig MW.
It's about a serial killer with a tumour in his brain who wants to take a whole city with him, and the various people who try to stop him, or become his victims. There's the priest who molested him when he was little, who is the only character he seems to have any genuine affection for, the various women he seduces, murders and takes their place to seduce other men, the several cops who tend to die when they get too close, and Daddy Walrus from Astro Boy shows up and gets his cock and balls eaten by the killer's lover, a huge attack dog.

Andrew Watson
Andrew Watson

Please no. That would be god awful and filled with normalfags wanting it to be a trilogy

From what they say on Midnight Edge, it's not like the movie would be an adaptation on the game or anything like that, it would just follow the same formula: "Batman is stuck in Arkham/Blackgate with a bunch of his foes and need to deal with them while uncovering a main villains plot"

Carter Garcia
Carter Garcia

I always liked how Jonathan Kent dies from a heart atack when Clark was a cocky teenager. Superman is freaking invincible but he still couldn't save his father. It really helps you believe how someone like Superman haven't become corrupt while holding so much power.

Meanwhile the movie shits all up on the message by having Jonathan dying in a way the Clark could have easily prevented. Way to miss the fucking message!

Will Arnett’s LEGO Batman is Ben Affleck’s Favorite

https://archive.is/WxIIM

“Well, look, I actually have it on good authority that Will is actually Ben’s favorite Batman,” Damon replied with a grin. “Absolutely, absolutely. Yeah, yeah, we’re all fans of LEGO Batman. I went this last weekend with my kids, and it’s just awesome.”

dat pic
dat over designed armor look
I'm annoyed by this in cape films. The only time I can tolerate it was for Captain America because he's a soldier in WW2 so it makes sense. For this it gets annoying. Wish they would just use the warbird leotard.

There's a way to make an armored hero look good but you'd have to make it sleek and simple. Which modern cape hero designers are incapable of. Case in point, Arkham Batman. Far too busy with too much going on and trying to be an Ironman sort of character.

For spandex, all it takes is a real quick modern redesign that doesn't stray too far from the original look but still looks good on screen. Yet no kikewood directors or execs seem to wanna try that anymore. It's just tacticool armor that ends up looking sillier than the original source material.

Sage for slightly off topic.

Maybe see it from the point of view of people working on it. Executive meddling on a microscopic sale for the Batman franchise. It's their personal vanity project because unlike all the other stuido's, Warner was handed the keys to the kingdom with a expanded movie verse with DC comics.

The stupid thing is that the Superman and Wonder Woman costumes are both very colourful, but the post-production filters all that out and makes them monochromish, can't vouch for Flash, but I imagine it's the same story there.

More like the studio ruined it, the director's cut is pretty good.

man, how can you say that film is any good. subjectively it is a sad excuse for a robocop reboot. and if it were any good by studio standards, there would be talks of sequels. at least they didn't go full ghostbusters and make murphy a big black dyke.

and why did they keep murphy's hand? wtf

note that this article is old

reeves is definitely in

https://twitter.com/mattreevesLA/status/834963502410297344

negotiations never truly broke down. it is thought that:
1) reeves' people 'leaked' the fake story to get him a better deal
or
2) affleck's people 'leaked' the fake story to get warner to close the deal because his newfound reputation as talented has started to crumble

ThIs, the costume for superman was actually respectful to his original color sheme and had nice reflective properties to boot, making him naturally brighter (as it should), very impressive prop if you ask me. It's a shame we never got to see it thanks to the edgelord oversaturated grimdark filters.

It could of been better done as "People need to see flesh so they know you're still human, then once they're used to you we put out legit robots".

NuRoboCop had better smug Murphy than the original films, and I enjoyed that.

Well, to be fair, that is the majority. Didn't last year have like fifteen or so different light novel adaptations with a harem? While anime ranges into a lot of genres, the bread and butter is shallow power fantasy haremshit.

There was nothing wrong with his red shorts. Fucking executives with their 'everything has to be dark and realistic' mentality figured no one would take a guy who wears his pants outside his trousers seriously, despite the fact that Superman had been going for nearly 75 years at that point and nobody cared. He even survived the 90s with his costume relatively unchanged, black costume and electric Supermen notwithstanding.

Ethan Evans
Ethan Evans

Yeah I gotta agree. The red shorts are amazing, a staple of the character, and a perfect way to break the blue on the costume. It works fine on paper and animation but in live action it can look maybe a little too silly. Which isn't a complete problem considering superheroes are kinda silly already. But noooooo. Kike execs just gotta fuck it up one way or another. Now the whole thing they tried setting up only rakes in money because people wanna see how fucking terrible it is. It's god awful and a disrespect to the idea of superheroes. I'm just gonna stick to Japan's stuff until our companies get their heads out there asses to make good hero shit again.

Dylan Nguyen
Dylan Nguyen

But this is just the thing. It looked fine when Christopher Reeve wore them. It looked fine when Brandon Routh wore them nearly twenty years later as well. You don't pull on Superman's cape. Pretty much all the other circus performer based superhero costumes got changed and updated around the 1950s/1960s but Batman and Superman's designs endured. The reason for this is - they work. There's nothing wrong with them whatsoever.

William Brown
William Brown

I suppose if you keep the designs and just update the material then it'd look good.

Ryder Jones

The red briefs are like the goofy costumes in Ultraman: You have to accept them as a part of the genre. No amount of "updating" would ever change that fact.

Noah Lewis
Noah Lewis

There needs to be at least some polish here and there to keep it looking good onscreen if you're not going for a golden age look. That's just simple fact. Redesigning it too look like a gay chainmail suit thing is not the right step at all, of course. Just touch ups here and there. You don't reinvent the wheel. You streamline it to work better for what you're making.
