It earned $288 million at the global box office and was nominated for two Oscars.

Warner Bros. is currently working on the superhero movie “The Batman”. While several details on the film are still being kept secret, there have been quite a lot of rumours about who will act as its main character.
The caped crusader was played by Ben Affleck in the productions “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”. It was originally planned that he will write and direct “The Batman” himself. However, he is only producing it. It is not yet known whether he will act as the superhero again. There have been speculations that Warner Bros. requested digital mock-ups for the film featuring two actors; one for Kit Harrington, famous for his role as Jon Snow in “Games of Thrones”. The identity of the other artist has not been revealed yet.
Considering that the movie will focus on a young Bruce Wayne, Kit Harrington would be quite appropriate for the part. However, this role is sought by various actors in the industry. Moreover, the fact that mock-ups were requested for him does not imply that there have been formal talks about this. Critics advanced that the other person is “closer to the Affleck mold”. Since “The Batman” will start filming in spring 2019, fans are hoping to obtain some official news on the cast.
One of the next films in the ‘Conjuring Universe’ is “Anabelle 3”. While “Anabelle: Creation”, the second instalment in this series, was a prequel to the first one, this one will bring viewers to the future. It will be written and directed by Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of “The Nun”. He announced that shooting will begin mid-October and that “Anabelle 3” will be set in the Warrens’ house. This horror film will be about what happens when the doll comes into the artifact room.
In a recent interview, Ryan Gosling announced that he would be willing to act in a Batman film directed by Damien Chazelle. The actor has collaborated with the latter for the picture “La La Land” and “First Man”. He is quite famous for his roles in drama and comedy productions. However, he did not work in any superhero movies even if his name was associated to motion pictures like “Suicide Squad” and “Doctor Strange”. Despite Ryan Gosling’s comment, which was made to support the director, it is very unlikely that this project will come true.
According to reports, filming of the motion picture “The Conjuring 3” will start in 2019. This news was confirmed by Peter Safran, producer of ‘The Conjuring’ franchise, while he was giving an interview for the promotion of “The Nun”. He asserted that the screenplay of the movie is “coming along great” and that he is aiming for a 2020 release. This project was approved by Warner Bros. in early 2017. David Leslie Johnson, the screenwriter of “The Conjuring 2”, was appointed to write its script. However, the exact start date is not yet known.
