Ben Affleck will no longer direct the new solo Batman movie

Jan 31 // Hubert Vigilla
According to Variety, unnamed sources say that Affleck's decision was not prompted by the poor reception to his film Live by Night. Other sources with Variety say that Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is on the shortlist of directors Warner Bros. would like to takeover the reins of The Batman. Other rumored directors whose names have popped up online include George Miller, Gavin O'Connor, and Denis Villeneuve. This is just the latest setback for DC's cinematic universe. Last week various outlets reported that the Flash film is undergoing a page-one rewrite from Joby Harold. Seth Grahame-Smith (who wrote the initial screenplay) and Rick Famuyiwa were previously attached to direct The Flash, but each left due to creative differences. The Flash is still looking for a director as of this writing. It's unclear if it is still on track for a 2018 release. What do you think about Affleck stepping away from The Batman as a director? Who do you think should helm the film? Let us know in the comments. [via Variety]

The official trailer for Wonder Woman is full of heroism and graceful badassery

Nov 03 // Hubert Vigilla
Whoa... a DC Comics movie about a hero who enjoys doing heroic things? And the Cubs won the World Series last night? Guys, it really is the end of the world. Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) looks like he may be the hapless, comic-relief non-hero of the film. That's good because Steve Trevor is the worst. Having him play the deflated macho foil to a proactive and heroic Wonder Woman seems like a solid bit of suffragette girl power. Let's just hope there's no perfunctory romance. It also makes me wonder about the comedy of manners and skewering of gender roles. It's been hinted at in both the SDCC trailer and this one, which could lead to some subversive screwball moments that hopefully dig deeper than petticoats and career paths. While Patty Jenkins' action and direction looks crisp, I'm still not 100% sold on Gal Gadot's performance. She has the look and can carry herself well, but Gadot's line delivery is flat and bordering on Schwarzeneggerian. It might be better in context rather than in these trailer-sized snippets. Part of me at a goofy meta level does like the idea that Wonder Woman is the resident Arnold of the DC Universe. And yet given the grace and diplomacy at the heart of Wonder Woman as a character, I worry that aspect of Diana Prince might be missing on screen. Also not sure of Junkie XL's metal'd out pseudo-"Immigrant Song" cover as an official Wonder Woman theme. Maybe it could be arranged for and recorded by an orchestra so it doesn't seem so out of place. Wonder Woman will be out June 2, 2017. What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments. Below is a bright, bold motion poster for the film. [via /Film] [embed]221013:43186:0[/embed]

Still not sure about Gadot's performance
The San Diego Comic Con trailer for Wonder Woman was wonderful, and the best ray of hope for the bleak DC Cinematic Universe. It offered some glimpses of Wonder Woman's home of Themyscira and the culture of the Amazons while also showcasing Wonder Woman's prowess as a warrior. Today the first official trailer for Wonder Woman dropped, and you can give it a watch below.
