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.
Warner Bros. has released some pretty good movies in the past month. It first launched the film “The Meg” by Jon Turteltaub on the 8th of August. This was followed by “Crazy Rich Asians” which was a huge success. On the 7th of September, the production “The Nun” hit the theatres. Thanks to this film, the studio has been at the first place of the box office for six consecutive weeks. Currently, the three motion pictures mentioned above are among the top four of the “Weekend Box Office” chart.
Directed by Corin Hardy, “The Nun” is the fifth instalment in The Conjuring Universe. It is a gothic supernatural horror movie written by Gary Dauberman. The film stars Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga and Jonas Bloquet and is a spin-off of “The Conjuring 2” which was released in 2016. It follows a priest and a novice to Romania. They are sent there by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious death of a young nun. Once on the site, they confront a malevolent demonic force.
All of the productions from this succession of films have been quite successful. In fact, this franchise can be considered as the most profitable one for Warner Bros. Within the first three days of its release only, “The Nun” earned $53.5 million. It has even surpassed the original movie from this series, “The Conjuring”, which made $41.9 million when it was launched in 2013.
The actor Jim Carrey is very famous for his comedy roles. One of his most popular films is “Liar Liar”. Released in 1997, this motion picture was a huge success. It earned $302.7 million at the box office and also received several positive reviews. Carrey acted as Fletcher Reede in this film. However, he had another secret part; a cameo in which he paid tribute to one of his other characters. He played the role of Fire Marshall Bill, who was a persona in the sketch comedy show “In Living Color”, in a scene near the end of the movie. He is in the crowd behind Maura Tierney and Cary Elwes when they are talking to an airport official.
