First thing I ever agreed with this douche on.
In an interview with Playboy magazine, legendary comic book creator Frank Miller spoke a bit about what it’s like seeing superhero movies made based on stories he wrote.
Turns out, Miller isn’t a fan, and regards even critically acclaimed adaptations like Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight with the same amount of disregard as generally lambasted films like Daredevil and Elektra:
PLAYBOY: There’s a consensus that Daredevil and Elektra, two movies adapted from comics you wrote, were lousy. Do you agree with that opinion?
MILLER: When people come out with movies about characters I’ve worked on, I always hate them. I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. I mean, I can’t watch a Batman movie. I’ve seen pieces of them, but I generally think, No, that’s not him. And I walk out of the theater before it’s over.
PLAYBOY: Does that include the Christopher Nolan Batman movies?
MILLER: It includes all of them. I’m not condemning what he does. I don’t even understand it, except that he seems to think he owns the title Dark Knight. [laughs] He’s about 20 years too late for that. It’s been used.
PLAYBOY: Nolan’s last two Batman movies each grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. Does any of that money make its way to you?
MILLER: No. If money’s owed me, I wouldn’t put it on him or any other author. To be sitting here whining and mewling and puking about that sort of thing…let other people do that.
When Miller gets a bit territorial about The Dark Knight, it is, of course, in reference to his seminal graphic Batman graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns.
Miller’s creator-owned work can, again, be seen on screen in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, opening August 22.
Um, I think she can loan you a few…
Dancer Timor Steffens, 26, who has dated the chart-topping singer, 56, since January, told the Mirror he “learns” from being with older women
Madge-ly in love: Timor with Madonna
Madonna’s toyboy Timor Steffens has revealed he prefers older women – because they remind him of his mum.
The dancer, 26, has dated the chart-topping singer, 56, since January and despite her age, he hopes they will have children.
In an interview with the Mirror, Timor said: “There is an age gap between me and Madonna but I don’t notice it.
“My girlfriends have always been older than me and that’s how I like it. I learn a lot. (Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body.)
“Mum is a big inspiration. She is a fighter, a strong independent woman, and any relationship I’ve had in the past was mostly with women that are independent and like to have an opinion.”
Netherlands-born Timor told how his mum was so important as he grew up because he had no father figure when his parents split.
He said: “I want to be a dad, it’s my goal to have my own family, that’s there in the back of my mind all the time.”
Close family: Timor, left, and mum, extreme right
Madonna first introduced Timor as her boyfriend at designer Rudolph Valentino’s New Year’s Eve Party in Switzerland. (she does this with all of them. It must be in the contract.)
They have since been inseparable and Timor has become close to her four children. (so did Brahim Zaibat)
He said: “I hang out with a lot of celebrities. I hang out with their kids, I see the world. (sounds like a nanny)
“But I do that because I genuinely care for who they are as a person. I’m a very loving person – if I hang out with them it’s because I have a big connection with them.”
Timor says he and Madonna spend much of their time together in the gym. (where else?)
He said: “Madonna is so disciplined with the gym, which is great.
“I’m in shape, I’ve got a washboard stomach but she inspires me to go that extra mile. I call it ‘besting’ when I workout really hard.”
Speaking of Madonna’s religion, Kabbalah, he said: “I like it, it’s spiritual – I’m not a member of it but I am into it.” (like you had a choice)
Having worked with the pop star on her music film secretprojectrevolution, Timor said she had inspired him creatively and as a person.
He explained: “She always looks for new challenges in life.
“When everyone walks the right path, she will walk the left path to show that she has a vision and her own way of expressing.
"She is a very strong woman and doesn’t need to follow the mainstream. That’s what makes her an artist.”
Madonna was today spotted in Ibiza after celebrating her birthday in Cannes earlier this week.
I want to hear how they met. Who asked who out (for Madonna). Guy Oseary? Liz Rosenberg? Rocco?
BTW, is that Chris Brown in the second photo???!!
