Late Thursday night, Warner Bros dropped a bombshell onto the internet when they announced, in a press release, that Ben Affleck is Batman. Specifically, he is Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel, currently titled Batman vs Superman. I thought Man of Steel was the best blockbuster of the summer but am not too excited about this casting announcement.
The world lost an amazing film critic today when Roger Ebert passed away at age 70. He had struggled with cancer for many years but worked as a critic for many more, 46 in total for the Chicago Suns-Times. When cancer took his jaw and ability to speak in 2006, he refused to slow down and used the internet to continue to communicate. His twitter account has over 800,000 followers and his website gets millions of clicks every day.
