Ben Affleck Sticking as Batman? – Ben Affleck may not be leaving the DCEU after all. Not that many of us believed it in the first place. A twitter user by the name of Daniel R. tweeted out that Ben Affleck was leaning towards staying with the DCEU after going back and forth. Daniel R is an LA based writer, and seems to have a pretty strong following. With “Aquaman”, “Shazam!” and “Wonder Woman 2” all set to debut in the next few years, and the surging Renascence that is “Dawn of Justice” on social media, it seems there might be a reason for Affleck to stay.
Zombieland 2 Dead or Alive? – Remember in 2009 when “Zombieland” came out, and immediately we heard rumors of a sequel? Well…good news, we’re finally getting one. A decade later. After all the hype of the first film is dead and buried. According to Vulture, Rhett Reese, writer for Deadpool 2, alongside Paul Wernick, hinted at a sequel. The two original “Zombieland” creators talked about Deadpool’s sequel and Wernick was asked about the long rumored sequel, which prompted him to be quoted as saying;
We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland. Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2.
They go on to say they’d like to start filming at the start of 2019, and hopefully will see the original cast come back.
