Opens July 26
Christian Bale spoke with EW.com about his role as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight Trilogy” and whether he might return to don the cape and cowl once again.
“I have no information, no knowledge about anything,” Bale told EW about the Batman role. “I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it. … [Batman is] a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”
THE WALKING DEAD
With CCI fast approaching, any major news having to do with “The Walking Dead” will likely be held until the show’s big splash in San Diego. However, TV Line has released the title of the season four premiere: “30 Days Without an Accident.” Let the speculation begin as you feast your eyes on this special Comic-Con International banner for “The Walking Dead.”
Season four debuts in October on AMC
It’s possible Hellboy 3 may find new life with Legendary Entertainment. In a recent interview promoting “Pacific Rim,” director Guillermo del Toro briefly commented on the possibility.
“I hate giving pieces about it,” del Toro said, “but last night, we were at dinner and Ron said, ‘I would be very happy to do Hellboy again, when are we doing Hellboy 3?’ [Legendary head] Thomas [Tull] said, ‘I would love to see Hellboy 3.’ He didn’t say he would love to do it he just said he’d like to see it, but today, I’ll ask him.”
Empire Online spoke with “Hellboy” star Ron Pearlman about the possibility of a third film, and the actor stated that he and fellow “Hellboy” co-stars Selma Blair and Doug Jones would be up for another run if things worked out.
“Every time I’m with Guillermo, it certainly occupies a small portion of the conversation. And believe me, when we walked away from ‘Hellboy II,’ both of us had had the snot beaten out of us to the degree that neither of us wanted to ever see Hellboy again. Then, about a year went by and I realised we had asked the fans to invest so much in this saga, and the saga really is all about how it resolves, because this force has been summoned into the universe and the oracle says, non-negotiably, that he’s going to destroy the Earth and he’s been nurtured to be this force of good. So for the third instalment — it was always about the third — I said, ‘Guillermo, I know what a heavy lift it’ll be, I know it’ll have to be twice as expensive as the first two put together.’ I think there’s a chance. Both Guillermo and I want to do it. Selma (Blair) and Doug (Jones) too, it’s just a question of finding someone who thinks there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.”
MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE
Flickering Myth has posted a video from Wizard World New York’s Q&A panel with Stan Lee, where the comics legend may have confirmed the existence of both a “Doctor Strange” and “Black Panther” movie.
“I’m not involved in those decisions anymore, but the people at Marvel are spending hours trying to think ‘what will we do next?’ and there’s a damn good chance that they will think of just what you mentioned, ’cause it would be a great idea and little by little everything you want to see will come along, because [Marvel] are just like you, they’re fans of the stories and they’re trying to think ‘what would the fans like to see next? What would we like to see next?’ So they’re working on ‘Ant-Man,’ they’re working on ‘Doctor Strange,’ they’re working on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ they’re working on god knows what. And did I say ‘Black Panther’ also? Those are the ones I know about and there are others that I don’t even know about, and shame on them for not telling me.”
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
William Fichtner discussed his role as Shredder in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” with Screen Rant, mentioning the character’s real name.
“I actually play a guy named Eric Sachs [Sounds like Sachs? Hard to understand] in the movie,” Fichtner told Screen Rant. “And then he goes through a few stages in his existence. … But Turtles is coming together very, very cool. There is a whole interesting dynamic that happens in the world of Turtles and all I can really say about it at this point while working on it is that the Turtle film, it’s not like anything that I remember about the Turtles before. I feel like this Michael Bay-produced movie is just gonna really be something else. I’m pretty excited.”
