New The Batman director Matt Reeves has abandoned Ben Affleck’s script for the upcoming movie.
Affleck’s script, which was written during the time he planned on directing the upcoming superhero movie, featured Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke as the villain to Affleck’s Batman.
“No [we won’t be using that], it’s a new story,” Reeves explained on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast. “It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”
A new image of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft has surfaced in Entertainment Weekly.
Vikander is shown rock-climbing in the iconic Lara Croft outfit.
Tomb Raider is released March 18, 2018.
Lily James will play a young Meryl Streep in the sequel to Mamma Mia!
Much of the original cast of the movie will return with Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan set to play their characters from the first movies.
The sequel will feature flashback scenes regarding the relationship between Streep, Brosnan and Colin Firth’s characters.
