Dave Bautista really wants to play DC Comics’ Bane. Netflix’s new young adult vampire series finds its first director, and the streamer teams up with Alejandro Brugués for a new horror tale. Plus, what’s to come on The Nevers and Creepshow. To me, my spoilers!
During a recent panel at Justice Con, Dave Bautista revealed he’s personally held meetings with both Warner Bros. and DC about trying to play Bane in a future Batman project.
I’ve made no secret about this. I want to play Bane so bad I went to Warner Bros., had an appointment with them, had an appointment with DC, walked in the door and said, ‘I want to play Bane.’ I’m not kidding. They were a little like ‘Woah, we’re not even casting Bane.’ I was like ‘I don’t care, I’m playing him.’
Deadline reports Alejandro Brugués is attached to direct The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy, a new horror film at Netflix written by Joe Russo and Chris Lamont. The story follows “billionaire Charles Abernathy who, on the eve of his 75th birthday, invites his four estranged children back home out of fear that tonight someone – or something – is coming to kill him. To ensure his family will help protect him from whatever’s coming, Abernathy puts each of their inheritances on the line – they’ll get nothing if he’s found dead by dawn.”
In a recent interview with Glamour Magazine, Elizabeth Olsen stated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is “a bonkers movie. [Marvel is] definitely going for that horror show vibe.”
