The Batman Begins Production

Our dear Dark Knight is ready for his next close up. On Twitter, Director Matt Reeves has announced the start of principal photography on the Robert Pattinson-led The Batman alongside a logo that, to me, recalls a bit of Batman Beyond. Over the past several weeks, we’ve heard Colin Farrell talking about how the script was “dark and beautiful” as shooting inched closer, as well as Jeffrey Wright letting Twitter know that he’s off to Gotham, and even a few photos that gave people potential Batman: The Animated Series vibes courtesy of a few blimps.

REVIEW: Castlevania Season 2 (2018)
Sunday October 28, 2018

Yesterday, Netflix dropped season two of Castlevania. The series is based on the video game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse and season one premiered in July of 2017. I really enjoyed season one, though I found it a tad brief at four 22-minute episodes. Castlevania season 2 contains eight episodes and, beginning where season one left...

Awesome Cheese: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Wednesday May 01, 2019

As I wrote in last month’s Awesome Cheese, comic book films expanded in major ways in the last decade. However, it wasn’t just The Losers that missed a step sometimes; even established franchises go down the wrong path. Such is the case for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Initially envisioned as the first in a new line...

Given the turbulent production history of The Batman, I’m relieved that things are finally underway. The start of production on a Batman movie is always a magical time, with fans eager for any sort of news about Gotham’s favorite son. Whether it’s Peter Sarsgaard comparing the film to a Pixie concert or Zoe Kravitz describing the grueling training the cast has had to endure, as she came home limping, every single tidbit leaves fans intrigued. Everything about this film feels fresh and exciting thus far, which is somewhat hard to do with a character whose screen legacy stretches back to the 1940s. Now, all that’s left is to wait for the first trailer, which may or may not coincide with Comic Con Experience, something to which Reeves has previously alluded. There’s no way the hype will live up to the fervor of Batman 89 thanks to superhero saturation, but as long as Reeves and Co. deliver an awesome film, the Caped Crusader’s future will be in good hands.
Are you excited that production has started on The Batman? Do you think we’ll have to wait till CCXP for the first footage, or will we get a trailer sooner than that? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to Geeks + Gamers for more bat-news!

The Women of Star Wars: The Ideals and Tragedy of Padmé Amidala
Monday January 27, 2020

Welcome back to The Women of Star Wars. In this second installment, naturally, I’d like to talk about Padmé Amidala. When Padmé was introduced in the Star Wars prequels, I liked her a lot, although not as much as Leia. As a child, the politics within the Senate and on the planet Naboo went over...
