In the game’s multiplayer component, gamers will play as a member of Joker or Bane’s gang and attempt to take down Batman and Robin, the source said. Villains in the game’s multiplayer mode reportedly include Killer Croc, Deadshot, Firefly, Black Mask, Deathstroke, and “some kind of Electroman character.” Deathstroke was previously confirmed as one of the villains in Batman: Arkham Origins. No []

Anne Hathaway Reuniting With Christopher Nolan For Interstellar


By: Katey Rich Anne Hathaway, a newly minted Oscar winner who also stole nearly every scene in last summer’s The Dark Knight Rises, is now set to reunite with Christopher Nolan for the director’s upcoming super-secret sci-fi adventure. Deadline reports that she’s about to close a deal to star in Interstellar, the project that already has Matthew McConaughey on board as the lead. We know almost nothing else about the story, other than the vague promise that it will “depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of []

Veronica Mars Movie Plot Details Reveal A New Murder Mystery


By:  Kelly West With the Veronica Mars film surpassing its $2 million Kickstarter goal and currently approaching $3.5 million from fans of the short-lived series, the movie is a go. The fans are still coming through with their financial contributions, which will go toward production costs. Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will be taking care of the marketing, promotion and distribution of the planned film, which will hopefully arrive early next year. That leaves us to speculate over what series creator Rob Thomas has planned for []

Jay-Z’s Musical Role In Baz Lurhmann’s Great Gatsby Gets Clarified


By:  Nick Venable F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is a classic American tale of modest living transformed into high society, of doing anything it takes to win the heart of a loved one, and of the illusion that wealth equals happiness. So it seemed a natural fit for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming visual feat of an adaptation to take musical guidance from Jay-Z, a rapper who came up from the streets to own them. But he’s not involved in quite the way we’d originally assumed. []

Veronica Mars Movie Campaign Breaks $1 Million And A Kickstarter Record


By:  Kelly West Earlier today, when we shared the news that the fate of the Veronica Marsmovie was being put in the hands of the fans, with a Kickstarter page set up by Rob Thomas and the challenge to raise $2 million in 30 days, we questioned whether or not it could be done. $2 million is a high goal to hit in a month’s time. In fact, it’s the highest goal set for a Kickstarter project to date, which made the task seem even more []

The Wachowskis’ Cloud Atlas Follow-Up Jupiter Ascending Secures Extra Financing


By:  Katey Rich Though it managed to eventually make an impressive $107 million worldwide, Cloud Atlas was a sad entry in the box office of 2012, an expensive and beautiful passion project that divided critics and was roundly rejected by American audiences. Even the poor movie’s Blu-ray release has been pushed back all the way to May, and fans of the film will be gritting their teeth at Sunday’s Oscars watching films with less beautiful scores and cinematography take home prizes. But despite the financial []

New Batman Arkham game confirmed for 2013


By:  Eddie Makuch Warner Bros. has confirmed that a third entry in the Batman Arkham series will launch in 2013. As part of parent company Time Warner‘s latestearnings report last week, CFO John Martin said the company’s “strong” games release for the year includes a new entry in the series. “And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise,” Martin said. “So all in all, we expect Warners to post another []

Ben Affleck Was Asked To Play Batman In The Justice League Movie?


By:  Sean O’Connell The Justice League movie might never graduate beyond the rumor stage. The last bit of news we reported about the potential JLA movie was pretty bad (more on that in a second). But when the rumors are as tantalizing as the one that recently dropped, you understand why this project potentially works better as fanboy wishes and dreams than as an actual movie that probably won’t live up to the hype. For example, Ben Affleck’s name was attached to the Justice League movie for a while, though he []

Benedict Cumberbatch Could Play Heroic Code-Cracking Mathematician Alan Turing


By: Kristy Puchko Only three short years ago, Benedict Cumberbatch was a little-known British actor who had no reputation to speak of Stateside. But then came the mini-series sensation that is BBC’s Sherlock. Roles in high prestige movies likeTinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse followed, as well as villainous turns in such highly anticipated action-adventures as the Hobbit trilogy andStar Trek Into Darkness. This year he has a slate of five films poised to hit theaters, including the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate. Basically, Cumberbatch is everywhere. Earlier []
