BATMAN 3 Update: TOM HARDY Joins Cast As Villian? Role A Secret..

October 13, 2010

TOM HARDY


Source: Deadline.com

[Tom] Hardy [STAR TREK: NEMESIS] has been set by his INCEPTION director CHRIS NOLAN for a lead role in the next Batman film at Warner Bros.

Insiders are keeping the role secret and won’t even say if he’s up for a villain role, but that seems a reasonable assumption.

Read more HERE.

Tom Hardy was solid in INCEPTION, had an icy presence as the foil to CAPTAIN PICARD in the STAR TREK: NEMESIS movie and has already been cast as the lead in the upcoming MAD MAX remake/reboot; MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Watching him go head to head with CHRISTIAN BALE in a third NOLAN directed BATMAN movie sounds very interesting indeed..

It’s Official: ZACK SNYDER To Direct New SUPERMAN Movie With GENERAL ZOD As Villian

October 9, 2010

ZACK SNYDER

Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct the new installment of Superman for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. Snyder was on a short list of directors that I recently revealed met with the studio as well as producers Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas. Other choices at the time included helmers Tony Scott, Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman, and Duncan Jones.

Said Snyder:

“I’ve been a big fan of the character for a long time, he’s definitely the king of all superheroes, he’s the one. It’s early yet, but I can tell you that what David and Chris have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I’ve always felt he was kind of awesome. I’ll finish Sucker Punch and get right at it.”

Also from Snyder:

“I defintely expressed my love for the character and interest in seeing him treated right. The character deserves to be loved. It’s his time.”

Also an update on the villian that SUPERMAN will be facing in the film:

Goyer is writing the script, which is rumored to have, like “Superman Returns,” a Richard Donner Superman connection. In the movie’s case, it’s a villain connection: General Zod.

Read more HERE and HERE.

Snyder proved without a doubt his understanding of epic comic book characters in the super hero world with his very underrated and unduly criticized take on ‘WATCHMEN’. ‘300’ was also a fantastic translation of the FRANK MILLER retelling as was the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake. The upcoming SUCKER PUNCH and the animated LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA’HOOLE look impressive from a distance… Throw in the producing savvy of one CHRISTOPHER NOLAN and SUPERMAN could very well top THE DARK KNIGHT in terms of story and all around amazingness.

A tall order? Sure. But these are two of the best visionaries out there right now so if anyone were be able to leap tall stories in a single bound it would be them.

BATMAN 3 Update: CHRISTOPHER NOLAN Confirms He’s Directing – MICHAEL CAINE Says Filming To Begin May 2011 – Who Is The Villian??

September 30, 2010

BATMAN 3: CHRISTIAN BALE and director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN reteaming for the follow up to THE DARK KNIGHT


Source: EmpireOnline.com, ComingSoon.net

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN making the gossip rounds for the past several days – a lot of it surrounding his producing role on SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL. But what about directing the inevitable follow-up to THE DARK KNIGHT – which has never been 100% confirmed but that most of us in the blogosphere have pretty much taken for granted?

“It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way,” says Nolan. “I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”

And:

“I think you can at this point, yes [I will be directing BATMAN 3].”

According to Sir MICHAEL CAINE who is expected to reprise his role as Bruce Waynes mentor/butler Alfred, filming will –

“probably start in May next year…”

And finally:

Chris [Nolan] and co-writer Jonathan Nolan are not telling anyone who the villain will be in the new film.

THRALL WORLD would love to see Nolan tackle the KNIGHTFALL storyline so we would say BANE!! But the whole point of Nolan’s so-far incredible BATMAN retelling was the YEAR ONE BATMAN and BANE didn’t show up on in GOTHAM until Year 10 (???) or something like that.

Announced BATMAN 3 release date: July 20, 2012.

‘SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL’ Update – Bigger Role For CHRISTOPHER NOLAN Overall As Two More Join List Of Potential Directors

September 28, 2010

DARREN ARONOFSKY: reportedly in the running as director of the new SUPERMAN movie


Source: Heatvision

Lots of noise about the upcoming SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL movie being produced by CHRISTOPHER NOLAN. Hot topic is who will direct? THRALL WORLD posted a handful of leading contenders a couple of days ago that included DUNCAN JONES, JONATHAN LIEBESMAN, MATT REEVES, TONY SCOTT, and ZACK SNYDER.

Here’s the latest:

The derby to helm the Christopher Nolan-produced Man of Steel pic has become the talk of the town. Nolan is knee-deep in the selection process, and he and producer/wife Emma Thomas will be heavily involved in the movie, so he’s looking for a director who is able to handle the elaborate production and willing to collaborate.

“Willing to collaborate” is new. A bigger role for Nolan as the movie is realized. This can only be a good thing.

BEN AFLLECK was apparently on the short list:

..extremely popular at Warners after making “The Town,” a critical and box-office hit. But according to insiders, the actor-director — who, ironically, once portrayed the actor who played Superman on TV in “Hollywoodland” — met about “Superman” last week but is nolonger pursuing it.

DARREN ARONOFSKY also:

..riding high on buzz generated by his upcoming “Black Swan,” is still in active talks, according to sources. But it’s early.

Check out Nolan’s comments this past March on his upcoming projects HERE which include a third Batman movie which he will be directing and a new Superman sequel which he will be producing.
