Before I venture into why no self-respecting film fan should buy into this well meant, although completely deceptive statement, let me say that this was nonetheless absolutely the appropriate statement to make. Regardless of how messy, heated or conflict muddled the true situation between Ben Affleck and his vision for the Batman film and Warner Bros had become, it would serve no one’s best interests to air the grievances. No party here stood to gain anything by throwing the other under the proverbial bus or engaging in any sort of public “he said/she said” quarrel, especially since they are both stuck working together (more on that later).

James Gunn, the writer and director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’, says Zoe Saldana “misspoke” when she told reporters at the film’s UK premiere that ‘Avengers 4’ was titled ‘Infinity Gauntlet’.
The biggest news of the bunch is the release date for Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode 9: May 24, 2019. This represents a major shift from Lucasfilm scheduling its Star Wars movies for the holiday season, but it also represents the franchise going “home,” so to speak. Until Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this series […]
Warner Bros. and DC Comics area teaming up to bring fans a new digital TV service in 2018.
