Holy I think I figured out Powerless
last night, after seeing the question mark shirts. It's just a continuation of 60s Batman. In that it's not meant to be funny now
, but in thirty or forty years it'll be so-bad-it's-funny funny. I am most assured that at some point there will
be a dance number, and the Batusi will be done.
And on that note, Warner Bros officially announced that Matt Reeves will actually direct the Batman Solo Movie
afterall, so I guess heads did cool down. Or it was BS. Or a publicity stunt. Either way. Affleck has also taken to social media to assure the fans that he's still Batman. And to segue from that, there's a Nightwing
film on the way with Chris McKay (who directed the recent Lego: Batman flick
) in talks to helm the picture. I guess it makes sense to start with Nightwing, since the fantheory for the costume from Batman v Superman has always been that it was Jason Todd's, and it is
an older, longer established Batman so Ol' Master Di
ck Grayson would be out of the red and greens and off doing his own thing with the current DCEU timeline.
Cress Williams has been cast as the retired superhero who must once again suit-up as his old alter-ego when one of his daughters falls in with a criminal gang for CW's upcoming Black Lightning
Fox says they won't make another Fantastic Four
movie unless they get it 100% right, which means they won't be making another Fantastic Four movie.
Looks like Huge Jacked Man isn't the only one hanging up the tights. Following the Wolverine will be Patrick Stewart, who just recently announced that Wolverine: Logan
is his last ride in Charles Xavier's wheelchair.

A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie. And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and --- this is an admission --- but at one point (Hugh Jackman) reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended... and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told (Hugh Jackman) that same evening, 'I'm done too. It's all over.'
Some quotes from the X-Movie camp:
Simon Kinberg, about the next X-Movie wrote:
I can tell you that the stories of me directing it are premature, but I can also tell you that we are in prep on what the next X-Men movie will be. We can't confirm what the next movie will be, but I can talk a little about, frankly, what I would do differently if I were to make X-Men: The Last Stand again, which had the Dark Phoenix storyline. I think the big mistake we made with that movie - and if anybody is to blame for it it's the writer, and I was one of them - it's that we made the Dark Phoenix the subplot of that film, instead of making it the main plot. The Dark Phoenix story is the biggest, and in many ways the most epic, saga of the X-Men comics, so you can't make that the B-plot of the movie. If we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to re-tell that story - and certainly, what we did with the end of Days of Future Past gave us the opportunity to re-tell it - I think we all would want to give it the justice and the space to breath that it deserves.
Simon Kinberg, about Hugh Jackman and Wolverine's future wrote:
We haven't started talking about that. The truth is, we really approached this as, this is really the end of Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine and it very well be the end of Wolverine in the movies. Beyond that, we'll figure out if there is some other version of him. We haven't gone down that road. We really approached this as if it were the end.
Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker, about X-23 wrote:
We have been talking a little bit about that and the possibility certainly exists. [...] She's (Dafne Keen) a remarkable actress, I think she did an amazing job, and a lot of the credit for that goes to Jim [Mangold]. It's certainly a rich opportunity, we haven't gotten specific in any way, but I'd love to see more with that character.
Simon Kinberg, about Gambit wrote:
It's in active development. It's a movie that we hope will be ready to go by the end of this year and shoot next year. We have two or three X-Men related movies this year so it can wait for a moment. The process has been that Channing (Tatum) is as determined about getting the character right as Ryan Reynolds was about Deadpool and Hugh (Jackman) was about this Logan movie. We know that when we get those right, the movie succeeds so we want to make sure we get Gambit right because we want him to be the beginning of a whole new franchise.
If Channing is as committed as Reynolds, then it'll be like ten years before we see Gambit
