Back when Warner Bros. was first trying to pull together a Justice League movie, Armie Hammer was the original actor set to don the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight. That movie of course fell through, and despite his disappointment at missing out on the role, Hammer went on to success in many other roles. But now rumor has it, he's on the radar once again to portray the caped crusader in the company's forthcoming Justice League film.

Everyone knows that Warner Bros. is planning on rebooting the Batman franchise, but the major question has been when. With a Justice League movie script currently looking for a director, and Man of Steel supposedly set to tie-in to it, Batman fans have wondered how Warner Bros. was intending to reboot Batman before Justice League. The answer may very well be that they aren't.
The Dark Knight Rises has been out for a little while now and people are still talking about it. Whether you had problems with it, or thought it was pitch-perfect, the fact remains it is a film worth talking about. To that end, I've decided to dedicate my latest in my "Their Best Scene" series to it. There are many to choose from in this epic finale, yet I felt a scene near the end of the film provides the highlight of the film and showcased the film's various themes aptly.
Warner Brothers has commisioned a script for a Justice League film but bringing the project to the screen may not be so easy. A movie like this brings with it a plethora of creative challenges.

Do they introduce all the characters or just assume everyone knows Superman and Green Lantern? What's the best way to make a Justice League film? There are tons of questions, and I take a look at the biggest ones and my thoughts on how it should be handled.
When I got a chance to check out The Amazing Spider-Man last week, I was anxious. I love Spider-Man and am fond of the Sam Raimi creations, and being a reboot I wasn't exactly sure the type of experience I was in for. However, I walked out of that theater with a massive smile on my face. THIS is the Spider-Man I grew up with as a kid reading comics, and I couldn't have been happier. In fact, it's one of the most character driven superhero films I've seen since The Dark Knight.
Fan boys have been curious as to how long Marvel's upcoming team-up movie might run. While I don't think many of us would complain that it'd be too long, a lot of people have worried the film will feel rushed with a shortened run time. Joss Whedon has now spoken up and confirmed the how long the film will be. While some fans may clamor for the footage not included in the final cut, that's not necessarily a bad thing, or what you actually want.
