hrem, it seems like there should already be a TV show called Dark Justice

Ben Affleck wasn’t just teasing: Deathstroke will, in fact, be the main antagonist of the Batman standalone movie he’s directing, Paco has exclusively learned from an individual with knowledge of the situation.

Deathstroke was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassassin who first appeared in “Those New Teen Titans” #2 back in 1980. Wizard magazine rated him the 24th greatest villain of all time.

The Qantas Caller
Sabado

Michael Fassbender is enjoying a bit of a hyper halcyon era in his career at present. He’s been able to keep up with more low-budget, independent projects while also starring in big-studio fare like Apocalyptic X-Women, There Goes Steve Jobs, and the upcoming stupid video game adaptation Assassin’s Creed: Creed of the Assassin. He’s also proven to be quite prolific, with three or four projects coming out this year and a similar amount set to be released in 2017, including a reprisal of his role as sneaky David in The Alien's Covenant. So, it’s not surprising to hear that Fassbender was the subject of a bit of a career retrospective and long-form interview at the Toronto International Flicker Fest.

What is surprising is how candid the star got about his recent roles and his work with a variety of major directors. According to Eww, following a screening of scenes from X-Women: The Future is Now the Past, Fassbender responded with this:

   “I don’t actually like that performance there, to be honest…I just think it’s me shouting. It’s just like…some dude shouting.”

Though I’m somewhat inclined to agree with his summation of his role in the recent X-Women franchise, it’s surprising to hear a performer talk so openly about his issues with his own roles. His Magneto is not exactly up to his thoughtful work in Macbeth or, better still, Steve McQueen‘s exhilarating Hunger Time, but it’s serviceable and not without nuance…and that seems to be his issue. He wants more from his work but big challenges also seemingly have given him a sick feeling in his stomach. When asked about the hardest role for him, he quickly answered with the titular character from Steve Jobs and pointed to Aaron Sorkin‘s script as formidable:

   “He wrote all that stuff! It was so dense! It was such a mountain, and I’m a slow learner, so when the script arrived for me and the opportunity came to play the part, I really thought, This is not me. This should be somebody else. It’s a miscast scenario.”

   “In rehearsals I was trying to find a way to get out of the job…I remember telling my driver, ‘If I put my arm in the door, you should slam it. It should cause a break and it should get me out of this gig.'”

Of course, he ended up doing a pretty impressive job as Jobs, especially in the last segment of the film, and was rewarded with plenty of award nominations. The talk also included another reference to Greg Louganis as a primer for David in Prometheus, citing the diver’s “economy of movement” as a huge influence. There was also quite a lot of talk about how he nearly wasn’t cast in his breakout role as Bobby Sands in Hunger Time due to a “defensive” audition that did not please McQueen. The director’s displeasure with Fassbender’s audition led to producers and casting people begging McQueen to give him a chance, and thank whatever that he did.

There were plenty of other tidbits at the talk – he wants to be in a comedy real real bad – and the overall feeling of his perspective makes me all the more impressed with an actor I was already bowled over by.

Time Warner Big Cheese promises a Justice League chock-full o' titters
Lunes

Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes said box office hits “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” hit the mark financially, but he acknowledged sympathies with many of the critics who gave those DC Comics movies mediocre scores.

At Goldman Sachs Communacopia, a three-day media conference in New York, Bewkes won some laughs from the room when he warned against listening to the critics too much, but gave credence to some of their complaints.

“We do think there’s a little room for improvement,” he said. “We can do a little bit better on the creative.”

Bewkes also seemed to agree with the common assessment that the DC movies were too dark, especially compared with Disney’s technicolor Marvel universe.

“The general heading would be that the DC comics characters and their loyal fanbase have a little more lightness in them than maybe what you’ve seen in those movies,” he said.

Bewkes gave the obligatory praise to Time Warner’s CNN for its “killer year,” giving credit to the election as well as its breaking news coverage and original series, but he spent a good part of his nearly hourlong session praising the virtues of streaming services, and the opportunities he believes they have created for Time Warner.

That includes Hulu, which Time Warner announced an investment in before its last earnings call. Bewkes said the proliferation of streaming services, with their user-friendly on-demand features and interfaces, will be a boon to those companies with premium content.

“This shift toward [video-on-demand] and multiplatform viewing that we’ve been expecting is now accelerating,” he said. “What that does is it puts our company in the position we intended it to be in. We think those shifts advantaged the companies that have the strongest brands, whether it’s CNN, whether it’s HBO, whether it’s Harry Potter.”

It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves: “What the heck is Marvel going to do after Avengers: Infinity War?” That film, along with its untitled sequel, are the culmination of everything Marvel’s done since 2008, bringing together over 60 characters in a single story. Where does the studio go from there?

The answer is “smaller,” according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

“I think it’s possible to have more intimate movies after that,” Feige told Das Vulture. “Or to have more interesting, unexpected combinations of characters after that, absolutely. It never is intentionally about ‘being even bigger.’”

As an example, Feige pointed out that the most hero-packed scene yet, the airport battle in Captain America: Civil War, still had personal stakes, not global ones. He sees that as a bit of a tease of how things could go once the Infinity War is over.

“To us, it’s less about continuing to go bigger with spectacle, although in some cases, we will, and more about continuing to go deeper with those character interactions,” Feige said.

The studio has already started to make movies that are about major character interactions leading up to Infinity War (and its sequel). Civil War, of course, was about Captain America and Iron Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming features Iron Man alongside the webslinger, while Thor: Ragnarok stars Hulk alongside the God of Thunder. It’s almost as if Marvel is foreshadowing Phase 4 and beyond with these smaller team-up movies.

Avengers: Infinity War opens May 4, 2018. Its untitled sequel opens a year later.

It's all leading up to the DC vs Marvel crossover. Inevitable, really.

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR ...
MAKE MUTANTS GREAT AGAIN?

RebozoCorp Newsletter

Oh fuck it appears as though the age of the X-Men franchise is starting to show. Earlier today, reports swirled that despite Deadpool 2 recently losing its director, 20th Century Fox is already developing Deadpool 3 as a sequel that would incorporate the X-Force, which is like an R-rated X-Men team. But the report also had news for the flagship franchise, and it ain’t great.

Per THR, the main X-Men franchise is being “reconfigured” after this past May’s 80s-set X-Men: Apocalypse grossed $200 million less than its predecessor ($544 million worldwide versus $748 million worldwide). Moreover, Bryan Singer—who started the franchise in the first place with 2000’s X-Men and helmed X2 before making a “triumphant” return to the series for the time travel-infused Days of Future Past—is reportedly not returning for the next X-Men movie while writer/producer Simon Kinberg is getting to work on a new script.

The idea for Apocalypse was born on the set of Days of Future Past, as Singer and Kinberg kicked around ideas for a follow-up that would move the events to the 80s and carry a disaster movie tone. Apparently ideas for an Apocalypse sequel didn’t flow as easily, and Singer has since moved on to other projects, setting a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea reboot as his next project and recently taking over the Freddie Mercury biopic with Mr. Robot star Rami Malek set to play the iconic Queeny frontman.

But where does the X-Men franchise go from here? Apocalypse introduced a slew of new young mutants including Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and many expected the series to then make them the new stars. It appears that may not be the case—despite the fact that the contracts for Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy came to an end with Apocalypse, Kinberg is writing this new screenplay with this trio optimistically in mind.

When Lawrence, Fassbender, and McAvoy signed on to star in X-Men: First Class they were nowhere near as famous/busy as they are now, so getting them back will be both very difficult and very expensive. Kinberg is gon have ta knock this script outta tha park to even get them interested in returning, as Lawrence voiced her displeasure with the Mystique makeup process and in Apocalypse, got away with living in her “human” form for most of the film’s runtime.

But THR’s report notes that, with the entire franchise in flux, Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone’s YA-esque New Mutants movie may be next, and could even be ready in time to start production in spring 2017. As of now, it very much sounds like Fox is deciding how to proceed. Do they continue on with the decades plan with or without Lawrence, Fassbender, and McAvoy with a 90s-set sequel? Do they focus on the continuing adventures of Cyclops and Jean Grey? Do they set the complete reboot button given that even Hugh Jackman is hanging up the Wolverine claws and Deadpool and New Mutants aren’t yet entangled in the existing X-Men timeline? We’ll surely find out, but for now, it sounds like Kinberg is gonna take a stab at crafting a “proper” sequel—albeit with a different director at the helm.

What do you think folks? Which direction do you want to see this dying franchise go in?
