Keanu Reeves opened up on his ‘dream’ to play Batman in a live-action movie

One of Hollywood’s most adored and well-known actors is Keanu Reeves. Fans go crazy every time he makes an appearance on the big screen since he has become incredibly popular in every part he has performed up to this point.

Recently, the star of The Matrix spoke candidly about his admiration for the iconic superhero Batman and his desire to play the part on the big screen.

The 57-year-old actor recently attended the premiere of DC’s League of Super-Pets on the red carpet. The movie is about the pets of DC’s greatest superheroes; Dwayne Johnson plays Krypto, the dog of Superman, and Kevin Hart plays Ace, the dog of Batman.

As Bruce Wayne, Reeves lends his vocal talents, making this the first time the actor has ever performed The Dark Knight.

Reeves discussed his love of Batman and whether or not he would play the superhero in a live-action film with multiple reporters as he walked the red carpet for the film’s premiere on Saturday.

Speaking to Extra, he said: “I love Batman as a character – and I love him in the comic books and in the films. So to get the opportunity to voice– to play Batman, was awesome.”

When asked if he would ever consider suiting up as Batman in a live-action role, Reeves said: “It’s been a dream, but [Robert] Pattinson’s got Batman right now – he’s doing awesome. So, maybe down the road – maybe when they need an older Batman.”

Reeves admitted that despite expressing his admiration for the superhero, he “never came close” to playing Batman during his career in a different interview with PEOPLE.

“I really love Batman, as a kid – comic books – I was reading Batman, Dark Knight,” Reeves told AP.  “There’s been so many incarnations of the character and it’s a character I’ve always wanted to play.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to endorse the notion when he expressed his wish to one day play an older Bruce Wayne on the big screen.

“I absolutely adore Robert Pattinson as batman but if Keanu Reeves had the opportunity to play as him – yo, that would be so f****** dope,” wrote one Twitter user.

A second added: “Love to see Keanu Reeves as an alternative Batman.”

“I would most definitely take a Keanu Reeves Batman movie,” tweeted a third.

Robert Pattinson apparently plans to reprise his part in The Batman sequel due to the film’s success.

Additionally, in the next DC film The Flash, both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will return as their respective iterations of Batman. In the upcoming film starring Leslie Grace as the title character, Batgirl, Keaton will also play an older Bruce Wayne.


Chris Hemsworth Ditched Meat For Kissing Scene With Natalie Portman in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

Chris Hemsworth is just as heroic off-screen as the Marvel superhero he portrays. He even gave up eating meat before filming a scene in which he kissed Natalie Portman, who is a vegan, in “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

The actress, who played Jane Foster again in the latest “Thor” movie, and her co-star Tessa Thompson recently appeared on the UK radio program “Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp,” where they spoke of Hemsworth’s kindness. The two guests were interrogated by the hosts about whether Hemsworth had any flaws hidden beneath the muscle and charisma, but Portman and Thompson only had good things to say about the stalwart of Marvel to say.

“The day we had a kiss scene, he didn’t eat meat that morning because I’m vegan,” Portman said of Hemsworth. “He eats meat like every half hour … he was just being thoughtful.”

Portman converted to vegetarianism at the age of nine and has been a vegan for more than ten years. She said on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp that she didn’t ask Hemsworth to refrain from meat before their kiss; instead, he just did it because he’s “a very good person.”

Praising her thoughtful co-star, Portman said: “He’s really nice. 

“The day we had a kiss scene, he didn’t eat meat that morning because I’m vegan. 

“And he eats meat like every half hour. Like, that was so thoughtful. That’s not something I’m angry about or care about, but he was just being thoughtful. He’s just a very nice person.”

Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson, added: “I didn’t even know he could go without eating meat. He’s [usually] just, like, eating bison in the morning. That’s so sweet.”

Hemsworth said last month that he was in “awe” of Portman’s presence and talent on set in an equally gushing interview.

He told Variety: “A little stab to the ego, but I quickly got over it and I was in awe of everything she had done one and off the screen. I’m such a fan.” 

Despite her professional knowledge, the preparation required for Thor: Love and Thunder were very different from anything she had to do in the past.

Portman stated in a recent interview with Variety that she was instructed “to go as big as possible” for the film.

“It was really fun,” she said. “I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, for, I think it was four months before shooting, and then obviously all the way through filming. We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes—heavyweight training that I haven’t ever done before.”

She added: “Of course, I’ve never really aimed to get bulky. It was very physical, so it was a lot of both agility work and also strength work.”


Victoria Beckham’s daughter called her Spice Girls fashion ‘unacceptable’

Harper Beckham won’t be sporting her mother’s previous Spice Girls attire any time soon. Victoria Beckham admitted her only child isn’t a fan of the provocative looks she donned while playing with the legendary girl group in the 1990s in a recent interview with Vogue Australia.

“She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short,’” the 48-year-old fashion designer recalled.

“Then David piped up and said, ‘Absolutely, Harper! They really, really were.’ And she was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were.”

While Beckham gained notoriety for her love of small bra tops and tube dresses by Tom Ford for Gucci — “The other Spice Girls weren’t really into fashion, so I was fortunate to be able to take up most of the budget,” she quipped — Harper’s personal style is shaping up to be far less skimpy.

“I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We’ll see,” the British beauty said. “She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of make-up and a crop top.”

Beckham shared a similar sentiment in a 2018 interview on the Barneys Podcast, saying, “I was amazed by how naked the costumes were … I used to go out with not a lot of clothing on.”

Asked whether she planned on passing down anything from her Spice Girls days to her daughter, she replied, “Absolutely not.”

In addition to steering her away from overly sexy styles, Beckham also told Vogue Australia she hopes Harper doesn’t spend too much time on Instagram, which she finds “quite terrifying.”

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about [body-shaming] just yet,” she said. “But seeing how cruel people can be, yes, it really does [concern me].”

Beckham added, “She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends.”

The fashion icon is parents to Harper, Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, along with former pro footballer David Beckham.

She said that along with making her seem “boring,” these stories’ headlines make her worried for the criticism Harper will face online and in the media when she’s older.

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about that just yet. But seeing how cruel people can be, yes it really does [concern me],” Beckham said. “She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends. But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”


Johnny Depp lands film role as playboy king Louis XV after explosive Amber Heard trial

Following Depp’s dramatic defamation trial victory over ex-wife Amber Heard, the streaming giant famed for successes like “Stranger Things,” “Bridgerton,” and “Squid Game” is planning to license and stream the actor’s upcoming film.

It is unclear what Depp will make on his latest film, but the once in demand actor has an up-front starting fee of $20 million for any role. Depp was pictured on July 6, 2022 meeting his fans in Hesse, Germany

Bloomberg News reported on Thursday that Netflix will provide financial support for the French period epic “La Favorite,” in which Depp will play King Louis XV.

According to a source close to Netflix, the streaming service will only license the movie to France for a window of 15 months following its theatrical premiere. Netflix did not comment.

The film, which was directed by Maiwenn Le Besco, is scheduled to hit French theatres in 2023 and become available on French Netflix 15 months later. Whether or when the movie will be accessible on Netflix internationally is unknown.

 “La Favorite” marks Depp’s first movie role since Hollywood shunned the actor after Heard made domestic violence accusations against him. n a harrowing defamation case against Heard, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages in June.

Heard, who made comparable claims, received a $2 million award from the same jury. The actress from “Aquaman” has stated she will appeal.

Netflix and other streaming services are anticipated to invest a portion of their earnings in regional films as a result of a recent agreement with French film guilds. Due to its popularity with French television programs like “Lupin” and “Call My Agent,” the streaming behemoth announced that it would spend a total of $40.7 million on French films in 2022.

Asterix & Obelix: l’Empire du Milieu, a comedy directed by Guillaume Canet, and “Chien et chat,” a film by actress and filmmaker Reem Kherici, are among the next French movies that Netflix has chosen.


Fans defend Elliot Page amid ‘transphobic’ tweets about star replacing Ezra Miller as The Flash

In response to “transphobic” remarks about Elliot Page taking over Ezra Miller’s role as The Flash in the DC Extended Universe, fans are standing up for the actor.

New face: DC fans have been calling for Ezra to be recast in the solo The Flash movie, set to be released in 2023, suggesting Elliot Page would be a 'perfect' fit for the role

Following a slew of scandals, including accusations of “grooming” an 18-year-old from North Dakota, Miller’s future as Barry Allen/The Flash is questionable, and Page’s supporters are urging the actor to take over the role from Miller.

Alluding to the allegations against Miller, one person tweeted: “Just want to take this moment to say Elliot Page would make a great Barry Allen, in case there’s ever a need to, you know, cast a new Flash, for whatever reason.”

Another wrote: “If Elliot Page was cast as The Flash, I would go feral. Cast Elliot Page in every superhero movie ever he’s so good in them.”

“Elliot Page would f****** rock as The Flash,” one fan tweeted, with another writing: “Let’s replace [Miller] and pretend Elliot Page was The Flash the entire time.”

But the conclusions were not all unanimous.

While some individuals argued that the job should be given to Page, who came out as a trans man in December 2020, others wrote anti-trans tweets and said that Grant Gustin, who played the character on the CW’s The Flash, should not.

Fans of the actor Page rallied to his defence. “I think it would be an incredibly inspiring image for the trans community if Elliot Page got cast as The Flash.

“He’s a great actor and has a knack for playing quick-witted characters. His build doesn’t matter in my opinion. We can have a tiny Flash,” one person wrote, arguing the actor’s physical characteristics weren’t as important.

Miller’s standalone Flash movie was originally slated to hit theatres in 2022, but Warner Bros shifted the release date out to June 23, 2023, as part of a bigger reorganization of the studio’s movies.

A chair was allegedly thrown at a woman in Hilo, Hawaii, by Miller, according to reports that surfaced in April. Miller was then charged with second-degree assault and detained. Miller had just been detained for unruly behavior at a karaoke bar in the same town.

The troubled Hollywood celebrity was then the target of more severe accusations.

The parents of Tokata Iron Eyes, an 18-year-old from North Dakota, accuse Miller of grooming their son since he was 12 years old and of “psychologically influencing, physically intimidating, and endangering the safety and welfare.”

Since then, a court has been “unable to locate” Miller to deliver a protective order against Tokata to them. Additionally, the actor’s Instagram account has been shut down.

Miller has “decided to privately focus on their health and healing,” according to a source close to the actor, who intends to address the accusations made against them at some time.

Additionally, there have been calls for Miller’s removal from the DC Extended Universe since a rumored 2020 web video of him choking a fan appeared. Miller is reportedly unlikely to continue as The Flash past the 2023 film.
