Our techincal issues appear to be over. Apparently the server can't stand to see me cry. But here's a story that might make nerds cry: Ben Affleck has signed a 13-feature deal with Warner Bros. to appear as Batman. BEN AFFLECK WILL BE BATMAN IN 13 MOVIES. Also, Bryan Cranston has been typecast as a soulless monster who destroys everything good. Cosmic Book News reports:
Bryan Cranston has been cast as Lex Luthor in what is said to be at least a six "appearance" deal (think of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury popping up in every Marvel movie in the run-up to Avengers) and may be as high as ten. Look for the official announcement to follow the conclusion to the final season of Breaking Bad as WB wants to dovetail off the end of that. Regarding Ben Affleck, we are told he has allegedly a 13-appearance deal for Batman. DC is going to have all of their main characters liberally appearing or at least mentioned in all of their movies to portray a more connected world than what Marvel Studios has done so far. DC also does have major interest in bringing Matt Damon into the Justice League now that Affleck is on board, and it is rumored that he is being considered for Aquaman or Martian Manhunter.
So, the deal starts this year, and if they make a DC universe movie every year for the next 13 years, Ben Affleck will be 54. Still too young to play Batman in The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Wait, who just typed that? I don't even know what that is. What's a "Batman"? I lift weights and I don't even own a computer because volunteering at the cute puppy shelter keeps me busy. 'Sup, ladies?
