Watch: Retro ‘Batman v Superman’ Trailer pits Keaton against Reeve

This, this is the fucking movie we deserved. Just know, if this depresses you like it does me, that somewhere in the OMNIVERSE is a reality where it happened. Take solace in That-Earth-You having watched it, and loved it.

Geoff Johns in charge of DC Films Division in wake of ‘Batman v Superman’ reaction

Batman from Dawn of Justice.

The good news: Warner Bros. realizes they need to shake things up in their DC Films division. The bad news: they’ve chosen Geoff Johns (and Jon Berg). The good news: it can’t be any worse. The bad news: I’m not sure how much better it can get under his (their) stewardship.

Ben Affleck has written script for ‘Batman’ solo movie; only contracted for ‘Justice League’ movies

Ben Affleguysz

Thing we probably thought we knew, but didn’t know for sure, but now is sure: Ben Affleck has written a script for a Batman movie. Thing we probably didn’t think we knew, but didn’t know for sure, but now is sure: despite having written the script for a Batman movie, Ben Affleck ain’t contracted for one. I have to imagine this will get done, though, I mean, right? The common refrain coming out of BvS is, is, is, is, “well, I can’t wait for the solo Batman movie”, right?

Hans Zimmer (‘The Dark Knight’ Trilogy, ‘BvS’) has retired from composing superhero films

Hans Zimmer.

Hans Zimmer is done with the Whole Superhero Thing. Which to me is a good thing, since while I love the dude, I felt he was spinning his wheels (in general, maybe) lately. That thin line between having a distinct voice and becoming derivative, it challenges us all. From talentless hacks like me, to powerhouse composers like Zimmer.

Monday Morning Commute: They Thought It Was An Accident

they thought it eas an accident

Welcome to Monday Morning Commute! On time, half-assed, and here for your whole-hearted dismissal. I am currently supine. Clad in sweatpants and malaise. Trying to see Monday Night RAW over my laptop. This is my worldview. This is my worldview: we live short lives in absurd conditions, and goddamn if I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Welcome to Monday Morning Commute! The column where I share the various things I’m looking forward to during a given week. This is a neat little week, filled with a substantial amount of anticipated-things and enjoyed-objects. I hope you’ll share your own MindMusings after reading through my little lame assed list.

Let’s do this!

‘Batman v Superman’ International Trailer: *Even* *More* *Intensity*

‘Batman v Superman’ TV Spot: Wayne is like, “Here I am, Breh”

‘Batman v Superman’ TV Spot: A Smoke Grenade Tricks Superman. Seriously.

So, uh. In this spot, Superman looks pretty fucking dumb. Like, a smoke grenade tricks him. Definitely not Grant Morrison’s Genius Superman from All-Star.

Rumor: Affleck rewrote parts of ‘Batman v Superman’ while *dressed* as Batman on set

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ TV Spot: “The Bat is dead. Buried.”

How is this for an absurd rumor & confirmation that the script for Batman v Superman is garbage (not that you probably needed any)? Apparently the Bat-Fleck would spend time on the Batman v Superman set, in his Bat-Suit, rewriting his dialogue and shit the day-of.
