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). The professional thing to do here was to draft a statement singing the praises of each other and that’s what they did. That’s also what they should have done notwithstanding that it’s a complete lie.

When Affleck decided not to direct THE BATMAN and Matt Reeves stepped in, I think people were afraid that Ben may not reprise the role. Is there any fear of that? I mean, I’m not really involved with THE BATMAN, but from everything… We have a cursory involvement because that character is going to touch […]
In the set video below, we can see a giant pool with boats that’s being used for an Aquaman set. There’s also a big blue screen in the background for visual effects to be added later. This looks like it might be where the new photos of Amber Heard as Mera were taken. Gold Coast: […]
