Welcome Back to Lords of Film. Episode 7 is here and we are going to do a nice round table talk about all kinds of film related topics that are circulating around various social medias. Topics such as Brian singer, Momento, George Lucas, Fant 4 Stic, Peter Jackcson, and Spectre. Kick back and enjoy another information packed Lords of Film.
This week the guys talk some Batman and DC news that has been going on in the past few weeks. Jared Leto talking about the joker, Batman V Superman trailers during Super Girl, and Batman Beyond news. Then SoB gets an interview with the Granddaughter of Bill Finger, the co-creator of Batman. Athena’s story of what she did for the credibility of her grandfather’s name is quite an amazing one.
Shanlian on Batman would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Yvonne Craig who was our wonderful #BatGirl in 1967, during the third and final season of Batman the TV series. Craig lost her long two-year battle with Breast Cancer at the age of 78 and passed away on Monday the 17th at her home in Pacific Palisades. rip batgirl
There are not too many people this day in age that stand for pure good and kindness, We at Shanlian on Batman feel that Lenny Robinson was an exception to this rule. For those of you that do not know of Lenny’s work long story short Robinson had put together an amazing Batman costume, drove a blacked out Ferrari (before purchasing an actual 66 Batmobile), and used his own personal funds to drive from city to city to Children’s Hospitals around the country to give gifts and a spark of hope to sick children. Lenny fist appeared on the internet and gained popularity with the police dash-cam recording of him being pulled over by a Montgomery County police officer while in full Batman attire. Lenny was most unfortunately fatally stuck by a vehicle on I-70 near Hagerstown MD after his Batmobile had reportedly broken down on his way home from a car show in West Virginia on Sunday, August 16, 2015. The fact that this man took the time out of his busy life, funds out of his wallet, combined that with hard work and dedication, all to bring a smile to the faces of unfortunate kids tells us exactly what kind of man Lenny Robinson really was. Reading through comments and message boards full of condolences many people throw out words to describe Kenny, words like Hero, Kind, Loving, Gracious, Generous, Honorable, etc, but the only word that sticks out to me while scrolling through, the only word that makes sense and sums up the impression that Lenny made on this earth is “Batman”. We here at Shanlian on Batman would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Lenny B. Robinson in these hard times.
According to “Da7e” over at Latino-Review.com Ben Affleck will not only star in a solo Batman movie that will make its debut in November of 2018, but he will also direct that solo Batman film as well, rumored to be titled “The Batman.” Da7e also goes further in his reporting stating that Chris Terrio who rewrote “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will also write the script for Affleck’s solo Bat-film.
If true, Terrio who won an Oscar for Affleck’s “Argo” now becomes one of the busiest writers in Hollywood. Not only did he have a hand in rewriting Goyer’s script for BvS, but he also is signed up to write “Justice League Part 1 and 2.”
This is not surprising to us at ShanlianOnBatman.com as we have been hearing for sometime that Affleck would indeed be the one to helm this film. These rumors have been circulationg since Affleck signed on to don the cape in cowl back in August of 2013.
We at SOB are 100% behind this idea, and hope that Affleck does indeed direct this film. He is a very visceral filmmaker, and the perfect choice do take over the director’s chair left empty by Christopher Nolan. Affleck is one of the hottest directors in Hollywood at the moment and Warner Bros. is keen to keep him in house, and what would be a better project for Affleck to direct? It is well known that Affleck loves the character of Batman, and for him to helm the project would make total sense. If this rumor does pan out, en atman on film will be left in gooBd hands.
