Ben Affleck Surprises Batman Fan

An 11 year old refugee, Mukuta, who is suffering from terminal cancer, at the hospice in Atlanta got a phone call from Batman himself, Ben Affleck.
Nurses at the hospital got the attention of Zachary Levi (Shazam!) via twitter about the wish of the kid to be visited by someone dressed as his favorite superhero. While Affleck couldn't show up dressed as Batman, because he was on location shooting a project, he video called Mukuta and had a little chat with him. You can see all about that above!

New Avengers Infinity War TV Spot

Check out the newest Infinity War TV spot, called Chant, above! It is EPIC and a minute in length, so it is actually much more than a simple TV spot.
It is a little bit spoiler-y though, with showing Bucky and Cap meet up again for the first time since Civil War and more!

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Wonder Woman 2 Will Partly Be In Imax

Wonder Woman 2 Will Be Partly In Imax

The first Wonder Woman was a huge hit with audiences and critics alike, so it is no wonder (hehe) that DC and WB will step up their game even more for the Patty Jenkins directed sequel.
IMAX executive Greg Foster spilled the beans now:

“I’m excited to announce that Wonder Woman 2, which comes out in the second half of 2019, will be shot with IMAX film cameras in select sequences. This Warner Brothers DC production, the sequel of the global juggernaut from 2017, is directed by Patti Jenkins and produced by Chuck Roven and Rebecca Oakley Roven. And we couldn’t be more excited that IMAX has been chosen to be a part of the film’s design.”

While the first Wonder Woman was screened on IMAX screens, it was actually not filmed the IMAX format. IMAX does allow a bigger frame and a lot more picture quality and has been used by Chris Nolan in all his movies since The Dark Knight, Zack Snyder in BvS and by Michael Bay in some of the Transformers movies, but Avengers Infinity War will be the first movie ever to be entirely filmed on IMAX.

Doug Jones Talks Abe Sapien In New Hellboy Film

Doug Jones Talks Abe Sapien In New Hellboy Film

In an interview with ScreenRant, actor Doug Jones not only promoted his Oscar winning movie the Shape of Water, but also offered his opinion on the new Hellboy movie, slated to release in 2019, which will NOT feature him as Abe Sapien or any of the actors and creatives who did the first two Hellboy films. While Guillermo del Toro (director of the first two Hellboy's and Shape of Water) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy in the first two Hellboy movies) had somewhat critical things to say about the project not involving them, Jones seemed a little less offended.

I’m told that Abe Sapien doesn’t really show up in this first reboot movie, so for a minute here I’m kind of – I’m OK with the fact that I don’t have to watch somebody else do that role just yet. I’d love to see the first and how they set up now with David Harbour, who is a brilliant actor and sweetheart of a guy. We met at Comic-Con last year and we hugged it out – really nice to make that Hellboy connection with him.

He also had a few tiny tipps for whoever might step into his fins in a possible Hellboy sequel.

If and when Abe Sapien does enter the storyline in subsequent movies, I honestly would not have any advice for anyone besides have patience with the make-up, but otherwise make the character your own. And, also, anytime you take on a comic book character you must know your source material. The fans depend on it, the fans will want to ask you about it. It’s an injustice to the fans of the source material if you don’t know it going in. And it will help inspire you performance on film if you know the comic books that you’re coming from.

I am a huge Hellboy and BPRD fan, so I am very excited to see an apparently somewhat closer adaptation of the source material next year with the new movie. While I liked the first two del Toro directed ones, they really were quite different in tone and characterisation, so I am thrilled to see what someone else does with the material.
