New Direction For ‘The Batman’ Paved The Way For ‘The Long Halloween’ Films

Batman: The Long Halloween adaptation apparently came to fruition after Robert Pattinson’s film went in a different direction.

The Long Halloween is one of the most influential Batman works ever, and elements of the story are notably felt in The Dark Knight. An early rumor about Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is that the comic book would heavily inspire that story as well, but it now sounds like things changed during the creative process.

Justice League Director Zack Snyder Reacts To Batman Controversy

We are finally getting an animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween, in two parts, but new information from Entertainment Weekly suggests it was on hold at one point because of the Robert Pattinson film. It sounds like the animated films could only move forward once Matt Reeves decided to go in a different direction. That’s not to say the 2022 film won’t pull anything from the comic, but it might not be as influenced as some originally thought.

‘Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2’ Trailer Teases Two-Face & The Joker

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022, while The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on digital and Blu-ray on June 22.

Thanos Creator Thought ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Would Be Like ‘Justice League’

Safe to say he had nothing to worry about! The post Thanos Creator Thought ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Would Be Like ‘Justice League’ appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

Thanos Creator Thought ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Would Be Like ‘Justice League’

Thanos creator Jim Starlin admitted that at one point he thought Avengers: Infinity War would turn out like Joss Whedon’s Justice League.

It’s safe to say both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame stuck the landing after many positive reviews and becoming the biggest movies of all time. However, given Infinity War‘s massive scale, some fans feared the film might not work ahead of its release. As it turns out, Thanos creator Jim Starlin was one of them, but for different reasons.

Tom Hiddleston Opens Up About Loki’s Fluid Sexuality

Jim Starlin looked back on the production of Avengers: Infinity War with ComicBook.com and recalled thinking that the film might turn out to be bad like the theatrical version of Justice Leauge after he learned that Thanos’ backstory was being cut from the film:

“I did have a few bad moments just before the Infinity War [release]. I had been down to the set for the cameo shoot, and had sat and talked with the two screenwriters, Markus and McFeely and quite a bit with Joe Russo. In Infinity War, they had had a half hour that they had to cut which was going to be Thanos’s back story. There was going to be a half hour without the Avengers, apparently. So, I thought, ‘That’s pretty cool.’ Then I was on a plane and I watched the Justice League movie, and they just sort of threw Steppenwolf in there at the end, and he does his thing. All in all, it was kind of a bad movie. So about a month or so before the Infinity War came out Russo said… Let me know that they had to cut the half hour of Thanos. All I could think of was, ‘Oh my god, that’s going to make it into the Justice League movie.'”

Do you wish the Russos kept Thanos’ backstory in? Let us know in the comments!

James Gunn Has Brought Up Marvel & DC Crossover At Both Studios

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Avengers: Infinity War is available on Disney Plus, Digital HD, 4K Ultra-HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the future of Marvel Cinematic Universe, and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content in the future!
