Editorial: Ben Affleck’s Batman Never Got a Chance – In Memoriam

Batman

Well, it is official. After over two years of speculation and rumors Ben Affleck appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past week to make it official: he's out as Batman. No more Caped Crusader for him.

Despite three appearances over three movies: two leading roles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), and a small cameo in Suicide Squad (2016), Affleck never got a chance as Batman.

Leaving Neverland Trailer

"I want to be able to speak the truth as loud as I had to speak the lie for so long…" HBO has unveiled the first trailer for their two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, a twist on the title Finding Neverland. This revealing documentary is about musician Michael Jackson, specifically two young boys who were befriend by him years ago. At the height of his stardom Michael Jackson began long-running relationships with two boys, aged 7 and 10, and their families. Now in their 30s, they tell the story of how they were sexually abused by Jackson, and how they came to terms with it years later. This originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and received quite a bit of attention, because of the subject matter of course. Each part of this runs a full two hours, for those interested in hearing the truth straight from the people involved. ›››
