Ben Affleck will write, direct and star in the next Batman movie

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: Jul 10, 2015 1:36 am

With Comic-Con 2015 kicking off, Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck will be taking control of the first standalone Batman movie. Affleck will write, direct and star in the upcoming Batman movie.

Deadline's Mike Fleming reports: "My studio sources tell me that Affleck and Johns are well in synch and have more than found their rhythm. In fact, they are likely to turn in a script before the end of the summer, prior to Affleck going off to direct Live By Night in November. Affleck postponed that pic to star in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice".

 

Geoff Johns is a name that DC fans should know, as he's the co-publisher of DC Comics, one of the two people in the highest creative position at DC. Not only that, but he has put in considerable work into the well-received TV side of DC with Arrow and The Flash. We should hopefully see a different Batman than what we've seen with Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Trilogy' and Snyder's work in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

FBI again speaks out against end-to-end encryption

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: Jul 9, 2015 8:40 pm

FBI Director James Comey recently spoke in front of lawmakers, again saying encryption is making things difficult for law enforcement. Silicon Valley wants to keep user data secure, and many services provide encryption and enhanced security measures - but it hasn't made the FBI and other agencies happy.

"Our job is to look at a haystack the size of this country to find needles that are increasingly invisible to us because of end-to-end encryption," Comey told the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary. "People watch TV and think the FBI as a way to break that encryption... we do not."

 

Of course, the federal government wants a backdoor to access private user data, while tech companies and privacy advocates argue about security and privacy issues.
