Live-Action Batman Coming to TV...Sorta Posted by Jett on Wednesday, September 25, 2013
The FOX television network has won the rights to a police drama titled GOTHAM which will featur GPD Detective Jim Gordon as the main character. If you're wondering what does this have to do with Batman on film, it doesn't -- unless it's set in the same universe as the new Batman on film starring Ben Affleck as Batman. >>> CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY!

I can tell you all unequivocally that there is NO plans for a Batman/Gotham PD television show that is set in the Nolanverse between THE DARK KNIGHT and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and show-run by Jonathan Nolan. That rumor is 100% false and you can take it to the bank. How do I know for sure? Because I asked the folks who would know and/or be involved and they told me "BS."

Not only is The Dark Knight hijacking The Man of Steel’s Super-sequel, he’s getting top billing in the title! (Giving credit to COMICBOOK.COM for this story.)
Well, we know that a new and rebooted Batman will be a character in the MAN OF STEEL sequel. But what's going to happen to the solo rebooted Batman on film? BATMAN BEYOND? Yet another take on Bruce Wayne's adventures as The Batman? And what quality filmmaker will want to take on the cinematic Batman when he won't have a say in casting and characterization? Stay tuned to BOF for more on this topic SOON.

A MAN OF STEEL Sequel Coming in 2015...With Batman
A New Batman Film in 2015?
Posted by Jett on Saturday, July 20, 2013
Well, we're getting the rebooted Batman on film sooner than expected.
Warner Bros. announced that the sequel to MAN OF STEEL will be a Batman/Superman team-up film. For more info, CLICK HERE.
According to Harry Knowles over at AIN'T IT COOL NEWS, he's seen some documentation that suggests a new Batman film could be released in 2015. Here's what he had to say...
"I've just been given a corporate document for a company that works very closely with studios on their releases - that details the titles that they'll be forming corporate strategies through 2015. Not only does it have a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie listed, but BATMAN. That this document was distributed today (Friday, July 19, 2013) within this company. I wonder, if WARNERS is going to announce that Saturday at Comic Con?"
There's not doubt that Warner Bros. is going to reboot Batman on film -- sooner rather than later. However, I can't see a new Batman hitting theaters in 2015 for several reasons -- but you never know, I guess.

BATMAN BEYOND A Batman on Film Reboot Possibility?
Posted by Jett on Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Check out this GREAT INTERVIEW with Christian Bale and Chris Nolan from back in 2005 while promoting BATMAN BEGINS. It's about 22 minutes, but well worth your time -- especially if you're a big fan of "The Dark Knight Trilogy."
Speaking of "The Dark Knight Trilogy," it's definitely TIME TO MOVE ON from it.

So, do you want to know what's in "The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition?" CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT!
Yes, this comes from the dude who currently plays Superman on film, but his comments do have something to do with Batman on film. Henry Cavill says that a JUSTICE LEAGUE film is "...not around the corner." Here's hoping said corner is a LONG ways off, and that Batman on film will be rebooted in a solo film prior to any sort of team-up flick (Ugh!). Anyway, CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY!

I'm sure you read the headline and said to yourself, "What does this have to do with Batman on film?" Well, it's because the film that follows is going to be some sort of team-up movie -- and it's going to involve the (likely rebooted) cinematic Batman. >>> CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY!
