House of Cards Director in Line to Direct Next Fifty Shades film | TIME

The director made the formal announcement in March, just a month after the movie opened in theaters, with insiders speculating the decision had to do with tension over creative differences with the books’ author, E.L. James. So who will take the helm for movie #2, Fifty Shades Darker?

Batman V Superman? Stan Lee Decides Who Should Win

It’s easy to imagine that many people have approached Stan Lee to ask which superhero would win in a fight. This certainly happened at the Boston Comic Con this year when Lee spoke with ‘The Boston Herald’ about audiences’ continued love for superheroes and a resurgence of younger comic book fans.

When pressed about who would win a fight between Batman and Superman, Lee places his bets on the Man of Steel:

“Oh, Superman. He’s indestructible. He can do anything. And Batman relies on a few weapons. If this is real, a fight between Superman and Batman, there’s no way you’d bet on Batman.”

It takes a lot of bravery to say this in Boston of all places, the hometown of the new Dark Knight Ben Affleck.

However, Lee stands by his response:

“Well, I like Ben Affleck. If they get Mortimer Snerd to play Superman, maybe Affleck would have a chance.”

(Mortimer Snerd, by the way, was a ventriloquist dummy voiced by the late Edgar John Bergen in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.)

Lee also talked about the legacy of his characters and how the boom of superhero movies brought in a newer legion of comic book readers.

First ‘Batman V Superman’ Screening Gets Standing Ovation, Doosmday Rumors Increase

We’re still seven months away from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actually hitting cinemas, but rumors have started to swirl that an early screening of the blockbuster was met with such a fervid response that Warner Bros. executives felt the need to give it a standing ovation.

Den of Geek reported that they were blown away with Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader. So much so, in fact, that one Warner Bros. boss even called Affleck the “definitive Batman,” and now plans are in place to have the comic book star become the centrepiece of the DC Universe. They will do this by having three Batman solo films, which is believed will be written and directed by Ben Affleck himself.

 
 
 
 
 
It’s also believed that Warner Bros. are currently finalizing a “golden deal” for the Argo director, with the source adding, “Basically,
