Matt’s 100% Accurate Oscar Predictions – 2014
Feb 2014 28

2013 was a great year for film. When so many are decrying the death of cinema, movies like these remind us that there are plenty of ideas and adventures left to explore. This year in particular we were treated to many films that break the traditional mold of Oscar fare. What was once a celebration of old, dry, period set dramas is now recognizing a younger and more diverse group of filmmakers. Here is the list of those films I believe will be honored this year at…

The 86th Annual Academy Awards

(P.S. – I didn’t include the nominees for short films because…well, nobody really cares about the short films.)

Oct 2013 18

starfireNew York City hosted it’s annual Comic Con this past weekend.  Much like all the other major cities that host a Comic Convention, there are a plethora of news, reveals, and announcements.  This show was no different.  Every publisher made some big announcements, but yet again, Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios stole the show.

I’ll break all the news down by publisher so it should be a little easier to navigate.

Possible Concept Art for Ben Affleck’s Batman?
Sep 2013 04

The production of the Man of Steel sequel is set to begin in just a few months.  It was only a matter of time before we started seeing pre-production art work and possible concepts for the new Batman’s gear.  According to Bleeding Cool, this picture by artist Steve Scott (the artist behind the comic adaption of The Dark Knight), was posted to a Facebook page and offered for sale. Apparently, it was pulled pretty quick.

I am in no way confirming that this is a real concept for the suit.  It’s nothing more that a rumor. That being said, I really don’t think this is what the suit will look like.  We may see something that ‘s close, but not this exact suit.  I’ve stated before that I would like to see some greys, blacks, and dark blues thrown into the new suit. A sort of urban camouflage.  I also like the idea of there being some yellow trim around the Bat symbol on the chest.  It’s a nice throw back to the older suits while keeping it modern.  I really like this version of the cowl.  It looks a lot like Gary Frank’s version from Batman: Earth One.  What do you guys think?  What would you like to see from the new costume?

Aug 2013 27

In case you haven’t heard – Ben Affleck is Batman.

Of course it is natural, since they star in every movie together, to assume that Matt Damon will be Robin in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

This little gem has been floating around the internet for the last couple of days.

Ben Affleck is Batman in the ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel
Aug 2013 23

The news broke late last night that Academy Award winner, Ben Affleck has been selected to play Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zach Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel.

If you’ve been following the tumultuous production of the Justice League movie, you would know that Warner Brothers wanted Ben Affleck to direct that massive feature. Affleck turned it down and informed WB execs that he would only direct a movie in which he starred.  Does that mean he WILL direct The Justice League if he’s playing The Dark Knight?
