    Intergalactic Wizard Scout by Rodney Hartman

      Over the years I’ve read a couple of books and series that have started out well, but over the course of multiple books, gotten quite a bit “less good” and somewhat tedious.  Unfortunately, Intergalactic Wizard Scout is one of these in my opinion. While the writing itself is nothing to write home about, the […]

    Firefight (Reckoners 2) – Brandon Sanderson

    UPDATE: Warner Bros. Confirms Solo BATMAN Film With Ben Affleck Directing

    One of the best things about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Both critics and fans can agree that it was perfect casting, despite the fact that the initial reaction to Affleck taking on the role was overwhelmingly negative. We’ve been hearing about a new standalone Batman film for a long time, but now it seems we have official confirmation of the project. 

    During this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara took to the stage and made the announcement: “We’re working with Ben Affleck on a standalone Batman movie,” revealed Tsujihara. Not only did he reveal that Affleck would lead the Batman standalone film, he also mentioned that there are “at least 10” DC Films that are in development to be released within the next five years. 

    UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Ben Affleck is set to direct the Batman standalone film.

    .@BenAffleck is also confirmed to direct, as well as star in.
