You sure...Ben Affleck?

Remember when I told you about the awesome announcement of Batman vs. Superman  during the San Diego Comic Con? It was announced today that Ben Affleck is set to join Henry Cavill in the Warner Bros. "Man of Steel" sequel as Batman. Now I know he's a pretty good director, but as an actor he's just ok. I guess the Oscars behind his name made the studio forget about a little 2003 movie called "Daredevil". The problem is, he didn't win an Oscar for acting. Now, you don't have to have an Oscar to your name to play Batman, but those are some huge shoes to fill and I wouldn't have put my money on Affleck. Oh well, it's not my call. You can bet I'll be in the theater though!

The sequel is slated to be released July 17, 2015. 



Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
