Christian Bale has confirmed that “The Dark Knight Rises” will be his last appearance as Batman/Bruce Wayne on the silver screen in a recent interview, meaning he will be exiting the series along with Christopher Nolan now that the director’s “Dark Knight” trilogy is complete.
“I wrapped a few days ago so that will be the last time I’m taking that cowl [Batman hood] off,” said Bale in an interview with reporter Ruben V. Nepales of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “I believe that the whole production wrapped yesterday, so it’s all done. Everything’s finished. It’s me and Chris – that will be the end of that Batman era.”
One question I’ve been oddly asked is who do superheroes share their Thanksgiving with? From the top of my head, let’s see: Superman and Lois Lane go to the Smallville farm with Ma and Pa Kent, as do Kon-El Superboy and Kara Zor-El Supergirl; can’t forget Superpets Krypto, Streaky, Beppo and Comet. Batman has Alfred, Ace, and his sons Dick Grayson, Tim Drake, and little bastard Damian. Wonder Woman has her Amazon sisters at Themiscyra. Spider-Man and Mary Jane stay with Aunt May and cat Ms. Lion. The Flash family go all out, with Jay and Joan Garrick cooking a quick-but-big meal for Wally West and Linda, their twins Jai and Iris, also joining is Barry and Iris Allen, and their grandson from the 25th century Bart Allen, who will bring mentor Max Mercury. Hal Jordan has family, but will tend to stay with Carol Ferris (*wink* *wink*) or his fellow Green Lanterns like John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Tomar-Re and Kilowog sharing some beers at Warriors in Oa. Daredevil Matt Murdock also drinks it up with best friend Foggy Nelson. Thanksgiving is just another work day for Captain America to protect the US of A. The Fantastic Four, with kids Franklin and Valeria travel back in time, this year to the 1960’s, to meet with young men by the name of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The X-Men all get together to try to outdrink Wolverine. They fail.
I wrote this as a response to a question a friend pondered last year. A lot of this is no longer relevant, but that’s the biz for ya.
The project, which will be penned by “Fringe’s” Andrew Kreisberg, hails from Greg Berlanti’s production company.
Syfy is looking to bring Booster Gold to life on the small screen. The NBCUniversal cable network has ordered a pilot script for the one-hour drama based on the DC Comics franchise.
The story will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time. Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn’t happen without first protecting the present.
