Superhero Team-up

23 Jul

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder announced at San Diego Comic-Con that there will be another Superman movie and the Man of Steel will be joined by Batman. It’s the first time ever the pair will team-up on the big screen. For those who aren’t familiar with the Batman and Superman comic book/cartoon dynamic – the characters have similar morals, but rarely see eye to eye. The combination should be interesting and I think their relationship will resemble Iron Man and Captain America’s in Marvel’s Avengers.

Both Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will reprise their roles as Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane. The big question now is who will play Batman? Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer was originally cast as Batman in the 2007 failed Justice League project and he’s in the running again for the role. The fan favorite is Joseph Gordon-Levitt who did a pretty awesome job in The Dark Knight Rises.  Some Screen Rant suggests are Richard Armitage or Luke Evans.

I think Gordon-Levitt is the best choice considering his role in the last Batman movie and even though Christopher Nolan isn’t directing the new Superman movies, he’s producing them.

Who else do you think would make a good Batman?



Jim Carrey Joins Kick Ass 2

5 Sep

Jim Carrey has officially joined the cast of Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. Carrey will play Colonel Stars who assembles a group of misfit superheroes to fight evil. This will be Carrey’s first comic book movie since Batman Forever where he played The Riddler.

Without Matthew Vaughn directing, I’m scared that the dark humour and grittiness of the first Kick Ass movie will be traded for over the top performances and slapstick humor. Let’s pray that Kick Ass 2 is closer to The Avengers than Mystery Men.
