Batman directing Batman

batfleckHätte jetzt nicht gedacht, dass ich das nach dem BvS-Debakel so schnell sagen dürfte, aber: Smart move, Warner.

Ben Affleck is directing The Batman, the upcoming Batman solo film. We had heard these rumors forever, but Tsujihara made it official by listing Affleck among the filmmakers WB is excited to work with on their upcoming DC films. He specified it was for the solo Batman movie.

Es gerüchtet übrigens auch, dass sie den R-Rated Directors-Cut von BvS noch ins Kino bringen wollen, um den Film doch noch über die magische Millarden-Einspielgrenze zu pushen und den Film dann doch noch als tatsächlichen Erfolg verbuchen zu können: ‘Batman v Superman’ Three-Hour, R-Rated Cut May Head to Theaters After All:

In the end, Batman v Superman will make some money, but it’s not going to be as big of a hit as the studio was hoping. In fact, the movie probably isn’t even going to cross $1 billion worldwide, and it will just barely cross the $900 million mark if the numbers keep up their current trend. […] So the solution that Warner Bros. sees is to bring the R-rated cut of Batman v Superman to the big screen so that curious audiences will flock back to theaters to see the extra 30 minutes of footage on the big screen.

Würde ich mir glatt nochmal auf der großen Leinwand ansehen, so sehr DC-Fanboy bin ich dann doch.
