Team Nolan in Talks for Justice League - Could Bring Christian Bale Back

Could these two have bumped into each other?
The Batman, DC, comic-movie-verse was has been a buzz for the past day or so with a pretty strong rumor from Latino Review that Christopher Nolan, David Goyer, Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill and Christian Bale could all be on board for a Justice League movie. Latino Review have a reputation for being right on their exclusives so it's hard to pass this off as some journalist taking a shot in the dark.

The team over at Modern Myth Media recorded an extensive podcast discussing the implications on Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, the soon to be released Man of Steel and the possible future for DC Universe on film if this all comes to pass.

Essentially Christopher Nolan is said to be going beyond his role of overseeing Man of Steel to overseeing the entire DC Universe on film. David Goyer will continue writing (he co-wrote The Dark Knight Trilogy and wrote Man of Steel). Whilst Henry Cavill is the next actor to play Superman in what's looking to be a more realistic take of the character in Man of Steel.

Nolan had said he was done with the Batman franchise so this would be a kind of about face for him. However I don't think anyone would be disappointed considering that Warner Brothers have been floundering around with a Justice League movie since at least 2007 - and have watched Marvel's Avengers pass them by in a cloud of money.

What's really upsetting some fans is the idea of Christian Bale reprising his role as Batman since Bruce finally found a way to retire from the suit and live happily ever after. It's as if Bruce isn't allowed to change his mind.  Not to mention Bruce is a genius with a very active mind. Somehow I think waking up from his permanent holiday retreat to try his hand at the daily newspapers crossword puzzle is going to get old really quick.

But that isn't the point of this post. I couldn't care less what other fans think. I'm hoping the rumor turns out to be true because I'm looking forward to how a more realistic treatment of Superman pans out and then how that would follow through into a Justice League movie.

Speculation is that Man of Steel is in direct continuity with the Dark Knight Trilogy. Therefore Superman would have to at least be on Earth during those films still searching for his place in the world (could Clarke Kent and Bruce Wayne have met in their travels to find their purpose?).

I don't know how old Superman is compared to Batman in the comics but it seems to me if Batman is to become the strategist for the Justice League he would need to have some years and experience on his colleagues in order to have their respect. In that group Batman's superpower is his mind.

I digress... Bale is not my favorite Batman. I was actually looking forward to a new interpretation and a new body in the suit. However, all along 'Team Nolan' has done interesting things with not just Batman but also his rogue gallery.

For years we've mused and speculated at which villains we'd like to see get the Nolan treatment. Well the ultimate, I think is seeing how Nolan's team bring Superman and Batman together using Bale's version of Batman to set the tone and style of things to come.

How anyone can complain about the most successful Batman on film coming back is beyond me. Thankfully Christian Bale has said he's still interested in reprising the role (in an interview with Empire Magazine).

Of course we're not there yet. Until some official announcement is made, it's all rumor. but here's hoping. In the meantime I'm looking forward to Man of Steel, which is only a few months away.

Guest Post: MY SOOPER DOOPER NEW CONSERVATORY/ART STUDIO!

Jo's new Art Studio/Conservatory. Today's guest post is by Artist, Writer, and Mental Health Advocate, Jo B Creative who writes for her blog,  Creating My Oddessey . Y ou should see our (almost) brand new conservatory, half of which is my art studio. 'Lucky me!' I think to myself. Not every creative bod can boast that. It's HUGE! Like a giant greenhouse. We first moved to our pleasant cul-de-sac house - great for raising kids - when our son, who's on the cusp of thirty-one, was four. One of the main reasons that we wanted it was that, apart from its location on the fringes of a historic market town in rural Hampshire, UK, it had a sizable conservatory looking onto the back garden. It was brown wood framed and had a corrugated transparent roof sloping down from downstairs ceiling height. On the face of it, it doesn't sound that glamourous, but we loved the idea of a conservatory. Luxury! I even liked the red brick walls which it was built against -

Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Onesie #Sadbatman

Although we haven't seen it clearly for sure, film director Kevin Smith (who has seen a well lit, color photo of the suit), says Ben Affleck's Bat costume is pretty much identical to the Frank Miller, Dark Knight Returns suit. If that's true then Ben's world weary Batman will be going 'old school' and be wearing his underpants on the outside (as he should).

The Star Wars Saga: Episode II, Attack of the Clones *All Spoilers*

Continuing my series of posts, as one of my local TV stations shows every Star Wars movie in order, every Saturday, for the next six weeks leading up to the release of Star Wars, Episode VII, The Force Awakens , here is my response to and thoughts on  Star Wars, Episode II, Attack of the Clones . After The Phantom Menace I just wasn't interested in seeing Episode II in the cinema. I don't think I made any effort to see it or even had any anticipation for it's release.

The Star Wars Saga: Episode 1, The Phantom Menace *All Spoilers*

One of my local TV stations is showing every Star Wars movie in order, every Saturday, for the next six weeks leading up to the release of Star Wars, Episode VII, The Force Awakens in theaters this Christmas. I plan to watch each film, at least two of which I've never managed to watch all the way through. Then I thought I'd blog about each movie here. Not so much a review but more my thoughts about the film, ranging from what I like, to what I see as a problem and maybe my thoughts on original trilogy re-releases and updates. This post I'll start with Episode I, The Phantom Menace but first, a little history of my fandom.

getpaidtodraw.com - Your Questions Answered.

If you've discovered the site getpaidtodraw.com and have been looking for someone who has bought this product before taking that leap then this review will peel back the glossy sales message and give you the answers.

Course Review: YouTube for Bosses - Sunny Lenarduzzi. How to grow your YouTube Channel into a Business

YouTube for Bosses Free Mug...  or the most expensive mug  you'll ever buy? I've been subscribed to  Sunny Lenarduzzi's YouTube channel for a few years, learning a lot on how to grow a following on sites like YouTube and Instagram. If you have any interest in growing your own YouTube channel I'd highly recommend watching some of Sunny's videos on the subject.  Definitely explore her 2019 back catalogue for the most useful information. This year she's been on a bit of a 'being authentic' pivot that, personally, doesn't resonate all that much with me (but probably speaks volumes to anyone with similar experience). I'm not saying she shouldn't or isn't being authentic, it's just I didn't subscribe to hear stories about her life journey. To get back on track, Sunny runs a successful online business with her flagship course, YouTube for Bosses , a stand alone paid course that does act as something of a gateway to further paid (but opt

Random Face Sketches to Robot Warrior Character Design

Future Soldier design by TET. Continuing on from my last post about the value of drawing without purpose , my latest video unintentionally demonstrates the point again. I set out to try and come up with something to draw for my next skateboarding/art video but didn't have any ideas in mind so I just started drawing faces. By the end of the session I had six very different faces drawn on a page in my sketch book.
