Now on to one of the few franchises DC Comics can do, Batman. I am personally really looking forward to seeing Ben Affleck as Batman in 'Batman versus Superman.' Many people may not like Affleck personally (for some reason), but I think he's a great actor. I'm confident that he will do a great job. I'm much more concerned about Zack Synder's direction and David Goyer's writing. That was the dastardly duo behind 'Man of Steel.'
Can someone give me a good reason the Mummy franchise is being rebooted? I don't recall it being that great of a franchise to begin with? It's only about 15 years old or so, but alas this is Hollywood. The latest news is that the reboot just lost its director, 'Mama' Director Andy Muschetti. Definitely not a good sign.
Here is the last 'Maleficent' trailer before its May 30th release. Check it out.
