Many of you may know that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had a whirlwind romance and eventually got engaged. The “Twilight” actor reportedly proposed to the “Snow White and the Huntsman” actress after meeting her at a dinner party in London in December 2012. He then reportedly proposed to her a second time while on vacation in Italy in January 2013.
The engagement was made public in February 2013. Since then, the couple has been very busy planning their wedding. In November 2013, the “Twilight” stars were seen enjoying a romantic date night. They were later seen holding hands as they exited an LA club in December 2013.
Is The Wedding Season Finally Here?
It’s been a pretty eventful year for the “Twilight” actors. Not only did they get engaged, but also Stewart became a mother in March 2013. She gave birth to a baby girl, Neve Campbell, in October 2013. In June 2014, Pattinson and Stewart attended the premiere of “The Hundred-Foot Journey” in London. It was there that Stewart announced that she and Pattinson would be getting married in Italy late this year or early in 2015.
Has The Wedding Bells Started Ringing?
Many fans were happy to hear that Stewart was going to be married again. It had been a while since she wed her first husband, director Gus Van Sant. Stewart and Van Sant were both 41 when they married in 1994.
Stewart reportedly got engaged to Van Sant after only dating him for a month. They were wed in a low-key ceremony in Paris in July 1994. Since then, Stewart has not been seen without her wedding ring. She has since adopted two other children from different fathers. One is a son, Astor, and the other is a daughter, Eve.
Does Batman Have Special Delivery?
No one was more surprised by Stewart’s engagement to Pattinson than the man himself. The 39-year-old actor had previously dated high-profile women like Gwyneth Paltrow and Emily Blunt. But he had never spoken publicly about winning the affection of a young woman. Even the most devoted “Twilight” fans had to be somewhat blind to not see what was coming.
While it was great to see Stewart finally find happiness, it was a little surprising to see Batman show up at the altar with a tuxedo à la Steve Austin.
Batmobile Is Back And Better Than Ever
The much-awaited “The Dark Knight” was released in July 2012 to critical and commercial success. Since then, the film has become the highest grossing superhero movie of all time. The Batmobile from the film has also become an object of desire for gearheads and car collectors around the world.
The vehicle was first introduced to audiences in the 1932 film “The Dark Knight.” Since then, the Batmobile has appeared in every film adaptation of the Batman series. The exception is the animated series “Batman Beyond,” where the character drives a more futuristic vehicle. But even that had the trademark bat emblem on the door.
The car looks almost exactly like it did in the 1960s. And it runs beautifully, too. Not only does it hurl itself through the air with effortless speed, but it also has a deep, ominous growl that is practically a signature of the Dark Knight.
Has The ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Rumor Been Debunked?
A major motion picture about the two most famous superheroes of all time was always going to be a cause for concern for fans of the Batman and Superman franchises. But the Internet has become a breeding ground for false information in the wake of the “Batman vs. Superman” rumor. Even reputable news sources like the New York Times have been forced to issue corrections when spreading the rumor.
The rumor claims that Warner Bros. had held onto the rights to the Batman character for so long because they were hoping to make a film featuring Batman and Superman. But in the end, it was all just a rumor.
Will ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Feature a Blinded Superman?
Some fans were indeed a little miffed that in “Batman vs. Superman,” Superman’s eyes are closed the whole time. The “Man of Steel” actor/director Henry Cavill has explained that his character was in a state of meditative prayer, which is common in Eastern religions. He added that Superman does have dreams in the film – just not of the destructive kind.
“I think what people are reacting to is they want to see a Superman whose abilities are showcased to the fullest,” Cavill said. “But in actual fact what they are getting is a character who is realizing the limits of his power.”
The rumor that “Batman vs. Superman” was going to be about a Superman who is blinded by rage has been circulating for months. But it wasn’t until recently that people started taking it seriously. Many fans have gone so far as to petition Warner Bros. to have Henry Cavill’s character’s eyesight restored. They argue that having Superman see in black and white makes him more of a tragic character. Especially since, in the comics, Superman’s eyesight is mostly restored when he regains his sight after being blinded by nuclear blast.
Will Joaquin Phoenix Star in ‘Joker’?
The “Joker” rumor was started by none other than Mr. Potato Head himself, Mike Meyers. The actor has been teasing fans with hints about a major role in a Hollywood film for a while now. He even named the character that he will be playing: Joaquin Phoenix. But this is not just any role. It is, in fact, the iconic Joker.
The news that Phoenix will be playing the infamous Joker was not a complete surprise. The 49-year-old actor has previously starred in many cult classics, including “The Gladiator,” “Walk the Line,” and “There Will Be Blood.” Most notably, he portrayed the Joker in the 1992 film “Jackie Brown,” which is often cited as one of the greatest superhero films of all time. The character was also the subject of one of the greatest songs of all time, Elton John’s “Something About the Way You Look Tonight.” John wrote the song after he was confronted by a fan (played by Phoenix) who demanded to know why the song had never been performed at a Led Zeppelin concert. Fortunately for the “Joker” fans, the band had enough respect for the song and its writer to include it in one of their live albums.
How Did Ryan Gosling Get So High In ‘La La Land’?
The “La La Land” rumor started with a series of seemingly innocent tweets from Ryan Gosling. The actor, who is mainly known for his work in “The Bluejacket,” “Lost River,” and “Drive,” began teasing his fans by suggesting that he would “show up” at the premiere of “La La Land.” The reference was to a scene in “Jackie Brown,” where Phoenix showed up to the premiere of his film “Leprechania,” with a fully equipped arsenal of weapons. He used one of those weapons – a rifle – to shoot “Oscar,” the nickname he gave to the character he played in “Jackie Brown.”
While that may be a one-off joke that Gosling will no doubt embrace, it didn’t take long for the Internet to latch on to the idea that “La La Land” would be a musical about the Hollywood dreams of a young film director. The movie itself is full of dreamy, romantic themes, so it made sense that someone would try to tie it in with one of the greatest film songs of all time: “La La Land,” by Katy Perry and Juicy J.
Is ‘The Shining’ Going To Be Remade As A Zombie Thriller?
“The Shining” is one of the most terrifying films ever made. And for decades, fans have been clamoring for a remake that would capture the haunting spirit of the original. While many had hoped that the “Shining” producers would give into their requests and remake the classic horror film as a zombie flick, that rumor was put to rest when they announced that instead they would be remaking the film for television. Stephen King himself is said to have called it “one of the greatest adaptations ever made for television.”
