On today’s podcast, we talk Matt Reeves’ thoughts on Batman, Jason Momoa’s thoughts on Aquaman, and the latest in the Wonder Woman movie marketing.
Matt Reeves talks a little bit about Batman – Los Angeles Daily News
- Still working on War for the Planet of the Apes, so he isn’t sure what he’ll be doing with Batman yet
- Reeves – “It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child. I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person. And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that. That is a really powerful character, in the same way that Caesar is such a powerful character.”
Twitter question from @JessieW72838902 – “Will we see any actor or actress from Matt Reeves Planet of the Apes films in The Batman?”
- Toby Kebbell (Koba)
- Gary Oldman (rumored to be considered for Brainiac in Superman Lives), Keri Russell, Woody Harrelson
Jason Momoa talks Aquaman – GQ
- On playing Aquaman – “We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field. There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”
- “The guy was never really accepted on land, and he was never really accepted in Atlantis. He’s a half-breed. But he’s the best of both worlds. He just doesn’t know how to handle his powers. So it’s kind of a coming of age for a young man to a man, or a man to a king. He’s lost a lot of things and he’s got to cope. He’s an outsider.”
- Aquaman film supposed to start this week, according to The Courier Mail
Wonder Woman “Goddess” TV Spot on YouTube
- “Let’s look at some data: according to iSpot, which tracks TV advertising, W.B. has spent $3,043,212 so far on ads for Wonder Woman. At five weeks out, the studio had spent $2,645,643 on ads for Suicide Squad.” – Vanity Fair
