When the person responsible for helming the team-ups of the two major comic book live-action universes isn’t available, you go get the next best thing. Fox has made a huge splash by tabbing Drew Goddard as the writer and director of their upcoming X-Force movie. If you’re unfamiliar with Goddard, where have you been? He has been the underrated writing and producing teammate of Joss Whedon for years. The two worked on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Alias, where Goddard was a writer, as well as Cabin In The Woods, his directorial debut under Whedon’s steady hand as producer.
Other than that, what has Goddard been up to? Oh, just penning the original Cloverfield, World War Z and the Martian, as well as episodes of Lost, Daredevil and the Defenders, meaning he’s also spent plenty of time with JJ Abrams. He was also the executive producer of both Daredevil and Defenders, as well as the NBC hit, The Good Place. In other words, you should start getting pretty confident about the success of X-Force.
To prove he’s the person for the job, Goddard already has the script for X-Force completed and will be ready to go into production at the completion of his current gig, Bad Times at the El Royale, which he’s also writing and directing. Fox hasn’t set a date for the film yet, but has open spots announced for late winter, mid summer and late fall in 2019 and ’20. Look for it to land in there somewhere. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this pick and what it means for Fox and X-Force!
The running rumor has been that, despite the fact Ben Affleck has been saying nice things about Matt Reeves and being Batman, that he’ll find some way to worm out of the role fairly quickly. Dissatisfaction with the overwhelming amount of attention to his turn as Bruce Wayne over his other projects reportedly had him unhappy, ditching writing, then directing duties, and eventually, wanting out. This has led to some crazy call-outs of the current Caped Crusader on the podcast (which you should definitely check out.)
His brother, Casey, recently made an appearance on WEEI, a sports radio network in Boston, claiming that Ben was, “not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say.” It is important to add that Casey is not on contract to Warner Brothers, and isn’t involved with any of their current DCEU operations The younger Affleck brother quickly backpedaled, saying he made that up, but it certainly fueled the already pretty lit fire.
Today, Ben’s reps felt it necessary to address the situation, saying, “He’ll continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him.” Maybe this is all window dressing. Maybe Joss Whedon has changed Affleck’s opinion of the role and the character. So much of the statements leading up to a major tentpole film are manufactured, so it’s hard to tell if the rumors themselves aren’t just for media hype. Time will obviously tell, but we’ll keep breaking it down on the show – you just keep listening.
Looks like Bobby’s concerns about Peter’s Spidey-sense have been solved. This probably won’t last long, so enjoy it.
