Ben Affleck is cast as the next Batman!

Image
The internet exploded last night (as it does) when the announcement of the next actor to play Batman was made. It was recently announced that in the Man of Steel sequel that Superman and Batman would finally be meeting each other on the big screen. And the actor that they have chosen to be the next Batman for this role is ... Ben Affleck? That's right! Daredevil himself will be suiting up once more. (Alright, Daredevil wasn't completely his fault but he didn't help at all. At all.)

I am not happy about this casting and admit I have made my fair share of jokes and have laughed pretty hard in the last 12 hours (who hasn't). But I'll give Affleck a shot. Depending on the artist drawing the comic Affleck can certainly look the part of Bruce Wayne. I think the big thing that is a concern for me, and many fans out there, is Affleck's acting. Does he have the range and ability to pull off a role as badass as Batman? Affleck has proven himself to be a great filmmaker b…

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire releases a new banner featuring Katniss and Peeta!

Image
A new banner for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has just been released by Lionsgate and it features our two victors from The Hunger Games. Standing determined in this banner is Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in their new arena wetsuits. If you have not seen these new wetsuits yet, what do you think of them? And do you think that Katniss and Peeta looked determined enough to make it out of the arena twice?

YouTuber Gugga Leunnam has brought to great franchises together in this ultimate mash-up that includes Thor and Halo! Luennam has recreated the Thor trailer using footage from the video game Halo 4 and the audio track of the Thor: The Dark World trailer itself. The result is truly a fun video to watch and you can tell that a lot of hard work went into creating this.

New image of Spider-Man wearing an alternate symbiote suit from Spider-Man 3 looks spectacular!

Image
Spider-Man 3 may not have been a hit with many Spidey fans out there but there were still some scenes that were done perfectly. Unfortunately, these were few and far between and there were too many changes to Spidey's story (or too much crammed into one movie). One change that ultimately had fans upset with the look of the symbiote suit when it was worn by Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man. Instead of going with the classic comic look they instead went for a straight color change of Spider-Man's red and blue suit and just turned it black and gray. This was of course a decision that Director Sam Raimi stuck with and defended. It wasn't the first look that they gave Spidey for his symbiote suit however. It appears that the first look that went into development was a much more faithful to the comics and certainly looked a lot cooler. As fans know though this look was scarped and never made it to screen."Online rumors say it's because the suit was made out of latex and did…

Screen Junkies has just created an absolutely hilarious "Honest Trailers" for the sci-fi film Star Trek Into Darkness. As usual the team did a fantastic job on this video and point out some of the funnier parts of the film (whether or not they are supposed to be funny is irrelevant). "For fans of Star Trek - Star Trek Into Darkness was one of the summer's biggest let downs. We boldly go and revisit the action-packed tale of lens flare, over-recycled Trek cannon, and frozen torpedo body nonsense." Enjoy!

Disney Princess reimagined as medieval warriors!

The Disney Princesses have gotten another reimagining as artist Sadyna has taken Snow White (Snow White and The Seven Dwarves), Ariel (The Little Mermaid), and Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) and transformed them into powerful medieval warriors.

Their younger self is from the Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone premiere in 2001 and their older self is from the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows premiere 10 years later in 2011. Its fun to see how much they have grown over the course of the 10 years.
