  • Neil Marshall has said they will be focussing on practical effects for the new Hellboy movie. “It’s definitely going to be as practical as we can possibly make it. I love to do stuff in camera whenever I possibly can, and use CG as the amazing tool that it is, to enhance or expand upon the world, but not to use it to replace reality, when you can do it [for] real.”Post Mortem

  • Director Matt Reeves has been talking about how they are approaching The Batman movie – “There’s a chance to do an almost noir driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven in a very very powerful way, that will hopefully connect you to what’s going on inside of his head and inside of his heart,” said Reeves to New Trailer Buzz. I hope they stick with that as we very rarely get the Dark Knight Detective doing any detective work.
