Ben Affleck And Henry Cavill Rumored For World’s Finest Movie
For decades, fans had wanted to see Batman and Superman face off on the big screen, and when they finally got their wish, it turned out to be a bit of a damp squib. There’s no denying that Zack Snyder’s Dawn of Justice is a treat for the eyes, packed with no shortage of stunning visuals, but on a narrative level, it leaves a whole lot to be desired.
There are so many subplots and minor characters thrown into the movie that a lot of people were surely considering suing Warner Bros. for false advertising, because the superhero blockbuster that promised us in the title that DC’s two crown jewels would face off in a battle for the ages had the duo scrap for about three minutes before they made up after discovering that their moms had the same name.
As has been the case ever since Man of Steel snowballed into an entire shared universe in the blink of an eye, trying to predict the future of the DCEU is an impossible task, and in the last week alone we’ve seen Ray Fisher seemingly draw a line under his time as Cyborg and Wonder Woman 1984 split opinion down the middle, while twelve months ago the Snyder Cut of Justice League was a myth, Ben Affleck had retired from playing Batman and Birds of Prey was pegged for box office success.
Indeed, what the future holds is anyone’s guess, but tipster Mikey Sutton is now claiming that a World’s Finest movie could be back on the table, with the Dark Knight teaming up with Henry Cavill’s Big Blue Boy Scout. According to the insider, Affleck might end up being the Caped Crusader who appears in the film, but no final decision has been made just yet and Pattinson is still an option as well, even though The Batman exists in a different pocket of the mythology from the franchise’s established Superman. But then again, we also know by now to expect the unexpected from the DCEU.
