Matt Reeves to produce sci-fi thriller Way Station for Netflix

Matt Reeves and his 6th & Idaho production company are set to produce a feature film adaptation of Clifford D. Simak’s Hugo Award-winning sci-fi novel Way Station for Netflix.

Via Deadline, the official logline for Way Station reads:

For more than 100 years Enoch Wallace has been the keeper of a Way Station on Earth for intergalactic alien travelers as they teleport across the universe. But the gifts of knowledge and immortality that his intergalactic guests have bestowed upon him are proving to be a nightmarish burden, for they have opened Enoch’s eyes to humanity’s impending destruction. Still, one final hope remains for the human race.

Reeves’ 6th & Idaho has a first look producing deal with Netflix, and are working on a number of other projects for the streamer including Animal Farm, Button Man, Idol, and Recursion. Reeves will next get back behind the camera as director on Warner Bros.

Rihanna Addresses Rumors Saying She’ll Be The Dceu’s Poison Ivy

When it comes to Batman, there are so many villains to pluck from his comic books that filmmakers could probably make dozens of movies without reusing a single one of them. The problem is that a numerous amount of them are so iconic that nobody can stand to see some absent from the silver screen for too long.

One such example is that of Poison Ivy. Though she first appeared in the pages of Batman #181 in 1966, she’s shown up in only one movie since that time – and that was 1997’s abysmal Batman & Robin. Still, the femme fatale has enjoyed a variety of animated adaptations and returned to the live action realm while Gotham was still airing on Fox.

Movies are a whole different ballgame, though. While it’s doubtful Poison Ivy will show up in Matt ReevesThe Batman, we can’t rule out her doing so in a potential sequel.

Kevin Smith Says The Batman Is Based On The Long Halloween

Aside from a synopsis or some such thing, odds are we won’t know too much about The Batman‘s story until opening weekend. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t fall back on our comic book collections while boning up before venturing to the nearest cinema.

If any singular literary work is said to have influenced Matt Reeves while assembling his blockbuster, it’d have to be The Long Halloween. After all, we’ve been told to expect a film noir murder mystery, and few Batman comics have pulled off that element so well. Plus, Robert Pattinson himself did kind of hint at that recently, as did our trusted source flat-out telling us Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s 13-issue classic served as inspiration.

Another person seemingly confirming this notion is that of filmmaker and comic book writer Kevin Smith on an episode of his Fatman Beyond podcast.

Here’s How Pierce Brosnan Could Look As Alfred In The Batman

With Robert Pattinson now locked in for the title role, fans are wondering who will be joining him in Matt Reeves’ upcoming Dark Knight reboot The Batman. Speculation is mostly focused on the many villains Bruce is expected to battle in the movie. However, let’s not overlook Master Wayne’s faithful butler Alfred Pennyworth, who’s been in every Batman cinematic outing to date.

Rumors have pointed to Reeves considering former James Bond Pierce Brosnan for the part and if you can’t see that yourself, take a look at this cool digital art from Instagram user Barrett.digital who’s dressed up the Irish actor for the part. With the classic butler outfit and hair loss issues, he looks every bit the Alfred we know and love. The fact that he’s presenting a grappling hook is also a nice touch.

In Case You Were Wondering, Joaquin Phoenix's Joker "Definitely" Won't Meet Robert Pattinson's Batman

We’ve been told time and time again that director Todd Phillips’ Joker is a standalone film not connected to any of the other DC movies. However, I’ve seen a lot of fans on social media wondering if the movie will connect with director Matt ReevesThe Batman.

Common sense says that will not happen, but in case anyone needs hard confirmation, Phillips was asked by Variety if Joaquin Phoenix's Joker would eventually come face to face with Robert Pattinson's Batman. His answer was short and to the point:

"No, definitely not."

So, there you have it. That discussion can no be put to rest. Phillips went on to explain again that there will be more versions of The Joker in the future:

“Oddly, in the states, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of “Hamlet. There will be many more jokers,

Rumour: Mahershala Ali in contention for Commissioner Gordon role in The Batman

With filming on The Batman expected to get underway before the end of the year, it’s only a matter of time before we start to get official news on the cast who’s sent to join our new Dark Knight Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves’ version of Gotham City.

So far, there hasn’t been any word as to whether Reeves plans on retaining any of the Dceu cast for The Batman; however, if a new report from Collider is to be believed, Reeves is currently meeting with actors to take on the role of Gotham Police Commissioner Gordon, and has had talks with True Detective and Green Book star Mahershala Ali about the role.

Should Ali find himself in the role of Gordon, he’d been the third Oscar-winner in a row to portray the character on the big screen after Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Trilogy) and

Joker Vs. the Batman Movie with Joaquin Phoenix & Robert Pattinson Will Never Happen

  • MovieWeb
DC and Warner Bros. are branching out from the Dceu with standalone movies about Batman and his arch-nemesis the Joker, leading to fan speculation that the two might share their own movie universe. However, it has now been confirmed The Batman and Joker will not be connected in any way, with each taking place in their own separate timelines.

Speaking with Variety, Joker director Todd Phillips was asked directly about the potential of the two movies crossing over., "No, definitely not." Phillips responded. "Oddly, in the [United States], comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of Hamlet," the director adds, suggesting many more Jokers will come in the future.

Inspired by the works of Martin Scorsese, Joker will be more of a crime thriller than a typical superhero movie. The movie presents a new origin story for the legendary Batman villain, showing how a failed

Christian Bale Comments on Robert Pattinson Playing Batman and Offers Him Peeing Advice

Over the years there have been some great actors who have taken on the role of Batman. Some have been better than others and Christian Bale’s version is a favorite among a lot of fans.

With Robert Pattinson currently preparing for the role, Bale praised Pattinson’s casting and offered him some advice on taking a pee while wearing the Batsuit. During an interview with Variety, he said:

“Oh, the same as for Ben, just be able to pee by yourself. You don’t feel much like a superhero when you can’t take a piss by yourself.”

I imagine taking a bathroom break in these Batsuits is not an easy experience. Hell, the actors can barely turn their heads in them! But, it doesn’t sound like Pattinson will be able to go to the bathroom by himself. When previously talking about trying on the Batsuit, he said

Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Won’t Ever Crossover With Pattinson’s Batman

Next month, the Clown Prince of Crime rises again as Joaquin Phoenix gives his unique take on the iconic villain in Joker. As is clear from a glimpse at the trailers, the movie will be very different from other DC pics we’ve seen of late and will be mostly divorced from the wider comic book universe. That said, the Wayne family will still feature prominently, including a young Bruce.

So, does this mean there could be a crossover on the cards for Phoenix’s Joker and Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight, set to make his debut in Matt ReevesThe Batman? Well, simply put, no. Joker director Todd Phillips was asked about the chances of this while speaking with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival. His reply didn’t leave any room for error, either, with the filmmaker saying: “No, definitely not.”

Joaquin Phoenix on ‘Joker’: ‘It Was One of the Greatest Experiences of My Career’
Joaquin Phoenix wrestled with playing the Joker before he signed on to Todd Phillips’ latest film. The actor talked about coming to terms with the role at a Q&a following the North American premiere of “Joker” at the Toronto Film Festival on Monday night.

“I mean honestly, it wasn’t an easy decision at first,” Phoenix said. “I didn’t f–king know. I didn’t. But then there was something that was drawing me toward it. It just evolved as we worked together. It started becoming something more than I anticipated. It was one of the greatest experiences of my career.”

Phoenix’s interpretation of the Joker comes as Warner Bros. is trying to revamp the DC Universe, following disappointing results from 2017’s “Justice League” with Batman and Superman. Phillips said he pitched “Joker” to WB executives as an origins story, similar to gritty 1970s and ’80s movies

Ben Affleck’s The Batman would have taken us inside Arkham Asylum

The former cinematographer for Ben Affleck’s dead The Batman movie reveals that the film would take audiences inside Arkham Asylum.

Arkham Asylum is a true fan favourite location, with so many great Batman moments taking places insides its creepy walls. We’ve seen the location briefly on film before but apparently, Ben Affleck’s now dead The Batman would have given us a new look inside.

Speaking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Robert Richardson – who was going to act as cinematographer for Affleck’s film – revealed: “I wanted to shoot Batman with Ben [Affleck] cause that was the next film we had. There was a script, but not a loved script. There was a lot of work he was doing to it to change it. He was going into the more insanity aspects… He was entering more into the Arkham, he’s going into where everyone was bad.”

Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe Bark ‘What?’ At Each Other Endlessly in New ‘The Lighthouse’ Trailer (Video)
“What?” Did you say something? “What?” “What?!?” That’s essentially the exchange in the wild new trailer for “The Lighthouse,” in which Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson get into an epic shouting match over, quite literally, nothing.

The two are sitting alone in a room, with Dafoe on his bed and Pattinson on the floor just in front of his. Dafoe says, “What?” as though Pattinson has just spoken or has something on his mind. He didn’t make a sound, and he answers back with the same perplexing question. “What?” It escalates from there, and they are soon yelling back and forth the same word over and over until Dafoe loses it.

“Damn ye,” he bellows. “Then let two-strike ye dead, Winslow. Hark!”

  • MovieWeb
We won't be seeing The Batman from director Matt Reeves until 2021, but rumors about its possible plot details are now hitting the web. According to freelance writer and movie insider Daniel Richtman, the story will be set at a time when all of Batman's fiercest foes have already been introduced and are running rampant in Gotham City. As the world's greatest detective, it's up to the Dark Knight to get to the bottom of a series of grisly murders, and every supervillain in Gotham is a suspect. Here's how Richtman describes the plot.

"The Batman will explore a detective case - when people start dying in strange ways, Batman must go deep into the dark world of Gotham to find clues and solve the mystery/conspiracy connected to Gotham City's history and criminals. In the film, all of Batman Rogues Gallery are already out there and active, similar to the comics and animated shows/movies.

Robert Pattinson Says The Batman Will Be Like Something From The Comics

To date, no live action Batman movie has been a strict adaptation of any specific comic book, nor have any of them drawn inspiration from a singular literary work. More often than not, directors have looked to multiple story arcs for inspiration, with classics such as The Dark Knight Returns, No Man’s Land, Year One and The Long Halloween already having been mined for material. In fact, Christopher Nolan sometimes went deeper and pulled from tales that were contained to single issues, having cited Batman #1 (1940) and “The Man Who Falls” as influencing his screenplays.

When it comes to the upcoming blockbuster that is The Batman in particular, we’ve heard in recent months that certain aspects of The Long Halloween which hadn’t been previously explored on film will be fleshed out in greater detail.
