Joe Manganiello Doesn’t Seem Sure About Deathstroke’s Status In The Batman

dccomics.com

The Batman movie chaos continues with the story changing sometimes every other day…

Via JoBlo: Warner Bros.’ DCEU has been experiencing quite an overhaul this past year, including a major restructuring of THE BATMAN. In addition to starring in the film, Ben Affleck was also set to co-write and direct THE BATMAN, but Affleck later dropped out of the director’s chair and was replaced by Matt Reeves (WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES). At the time it seemed that Reeves would be working from the existing script, but the director later confirmed that they would be starting from scratch. Although we didn’t know much about THE BATMAN, we did know that Joe Manganiello would be playing Deathstroke, but, with the the script going back to the drawing board, Deathstroke’s status is no longer assured.

Could The Batman Spark A New Trilogy Of Movies For The Caped Crusader?

DC Comics

More Batman movies? Another trilogy idea? What do you think?

Via We Got This Covered: 

War For the Planet of the Apes is almost upon us (July 14th) and for comic book fans, the threequel’s ongoing press tour has become a rich treasure trove of interviews and tantalizing tidbits relating to Matt Reeves and his approach to The Batman.

Now that the filmmaker is coming off the one-two punch of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the imminent War, all eyes are beginning to turn toward his next creature venture, which involves a dalliance with the DC Extended Universe. And for all of the drama that threatened to engulf The Batman four months ago – in short: Ben Affleck handed over directing duties to Matt Reeves – there is now a tangible sense of excitement swirling around the nascent project, which is expected to begin filming sometime next year, long after Justice League swoops into theaters in November.

Mining inspiration from Christopher Nolan, film noir, Rocksteady’s Arkham series(?), and even Alfred Hitchcock, much has been made about Matt Reeves’ creative approach to The Batman, but with so many ideas floating around, one has to wonder: Will Reeves and his team really cram everything into a single spinoff? Turns out the director has at the very least considered the possibility of spinning out a new trilogy featuring Gotham’s Dark Knight.

I have ideas about an arc, but really, the important thing is just to start… you have to start with one. You know, you have to start with a story that begins something. And I would be lying if I could tell you that the arcs of Apes was already planned out, because it simply wasn’t; it’s one of those things where that character was so potent, and the possibility was embedded from the beginning, but exactly how you’ve got from A to Z is not something that existed.

Joe Manganiello Out Of Batman?

dccomics.com

The news on this film just keeps getting worse. “For many, the most promising thing about the standalone flick is seeing Joe Manganiello bring the villainous Deathstroke to life. Throughout the entire pre-production phase, he’s been sort of the one constant, that one thing that we knew we could for sure expect to get in the film. Now, however, it looks like even he’s not a certainty. While speaking with Pittsburgh Today Live, the actor was asked about his involvement in The Batman. Though in the past Manganiello’s always seemed overly positive about the project, it now appears that he’s changing his tune.” More at the link below.

Let us know who you think would win in the comments!” Video at the link below. Enjoy!

ScreenRant Says David Fincher Should Direct Batman

DC Comics

Check out this argument for having Fincher direct Batman and see if you agree. Courtesy of ScreenRant. ”

As for any latent fears of simplicity, there is no comic book character more complex than the Dark Knight. He has existed for nearly 80 years and has shown a nearly limitless adaptability. Scores of authors have tried their hand at writing the ultimate Batman story, and though they work with finite ingredients, they continue to find infinite new incarnations of the character. For David Fincher to comprehend the magic of a marriage between his directorial vision and a potent Batman script, he would simply have to look at the library of stories under the Dark Knight’s name. Imagine the possibilities if Fincher got his hands on a twisted Scott Snyder story like Batman: Endgame, where Alfred gets his arm chopped off, the Joker skins his own face and Batman actually dies. It’s heavy stuff, but it’s also perfect for David Fincher. As the director himself one said, “I think people are perverts.” The Joker certainly fits the bill, and so, arguably, does Batman.”

Matt Reeves Bails On Batman

DC Comics

What’s going on? Nerds everywhere are going to be in a tizzy!

“In a shocking turn of events, The Hollywood Reporter is telling us tonight that roughly a week after signing on to helm The Batman for Warner Bros., Matt Reeves has now departed the project. No reason was given for his exit, but the outlet notes that talks could potentially resume once “when heads cool.” Despite that, this doesn’t sound very promising and it seems that the studio is, once again, left without a director.

Making this even more surprising is the fact that just this morning, we had heard that Reeves had potentially signed on for more than one DC Extended Universe film and was getting quite involved in things. What exactly’s going on behind the scenes is hard to say at the moment, but it all paints a pretty worrying picture for both The Batman and the studio’s cinematic universe as a whole. From what we’ve heard, Warner Bros. will still make the film no matter what, but it seems like they’ll need to find someone else to helm it, after both Affleck and now Reeves have departed the director’s chair.”
