Ben Affleck promises a “more traditional Batman” in Justice League

Regardless of the rumors circulating around the star’s involvement in The Batman, Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight will be front and center in the upcoming Justice League film. Now, we know that Batman will be receiving a suit upgrade, and some sleek new vehicles in Justice League, but how else has his character changed? Justice League promises to be a lighter film than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so how will that new tone translate to Batman himself?
Speaking to EW Ben Affleck revealed that Justice League will offer a more “traditional” Caped Crusader this time around:
“He’s put in this position of having to reach out, find other people, convincing them to do something,” Affleck explains. “Part of the drama of the movie is the question of whether or not the team is going to come together. It’s very different from the tenor of the last movie. BvS departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod. He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people. This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics. This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book.”
This definitely keeps in line with the way things concluded in Batman v Superman. Superman’s sacrifice instilled hope in Bruce Wayne by the end, which motivates him to “unite the League”.Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.Justice League will reunite Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard (The Danish Girl) as Mera, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as Vulko, Kiersey Clemons (Dope) as Iris West, Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Steppenwolf, and Julian Lewis Jones (Stella) and Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

Serena William Gives Reasons Why She Has REFUSED To Move In With Fiance + Prince Harry's GF Also Has A WORD For Her

Serena William may be expecting her first child with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, but the tennis star is refusing to move-in with the Reddit co-founder until she is married.

The 35-year-old opened up about her relationship with Alexis, 34, and her potentially life-threatening pregnancy in a new interview with Vogue, explaining that she feared getting pregnant after she was hospitalized with bilateral pulmonary embolisms following foot surgery in 2011.

Serena, who admitted her pregnancy was unplanned, has to inject herself with anticoagulants daily because carrying a child increases her risk of blood clots.

Although she was initially terrified of getting pregnant, Serena said she surprised herself when she became 'really calm' once she found out that she was expecting.

'I thought, You have to win, but you’re allowed to lose, because you have something to look forward to,' she said.

Serena and Alexis are waiting to find out the sex of their child, and while he believes she is carrying a boy, the tennis star is convinced that it is a girl.

'Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open,' she recalled. 'I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.'

Serena famously won her 23rd Grand Slam at the Australian Open while pregnant, but she has since temporarily retired from competitive tennis to focus on her pregnancy.

Alexis has been spending weekend in

Although she is currently building a home for herself in Florida, she plans to move to San Francisco to be with the tech wiz after their wedding.

Serena is currently eight months pregnant, and her friend Meghan Markle couldn't help but gush about what a great mother she is going to be.

The Suits actress, who is in a relationship with Prince Harry, told Vogue: 'She will be an amazing mom.  The very best, because she is so attuned to balancing strength and sensitivity.

Serena Williams speaks on the power of Pregnancy and Her coming back to sport

Serena Williams who has a long history of setting the tennis world on fire spoke toVogue for its September issue about what impact motherhood will have on her game.
The eight-months-pregnant athlete revealed she’s coming back to the sport after she gives birth stating:
I used to think I’d want to retire when I have kids, but no, I’m definitely coming back. Walking out there and hearing the crowd, it may seem like nothing. But there’s no better feeling in the world. Obviously, if I have a chance to go out there and catch up with [Margaret Court], I am not going to pass that up, If anything, this pregnancy has given me a new power.

Speaking of the sex of her child and power she said:
Alexis thinks we’re having a boy, but I have a strong suspicion that it’s a girl. Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.
She also spoke to the magazine about childbirth itself, and whether she’ll be a good parent:
I’m not a spring chicken. The one thing I really want is an epidural, which I know a lot of people are against, but I’ve had surgeries galore, and I don’t need to experience any more pain if I can avoid it,
But the biggest thing is that I don’t really think I’m a baby person. Not yet. That’s something I have to work on, I’m so used to me-me-me, taking care of my health, my body, my career. I always ask, ‘Am I going to be good enough?’

Taylor Swift wins Groping Case, awarded $1m in Damages

Taylor Swift
A jury made up of 6 women and 2 men has ruled in favour of pop star Taylor Swift in the sexual assault case she filed against former radio host David Mueller.
He will be required to pay $1 in damages to Swift.
Mueller had sued Taylor Swift, her motherAndrea Swift, and radio promotions directorFrank Bell  for $3m, saying Taylor Swift cost him his job with her allegation that he groped her at a meet and greet in 2013.
His case was however, dismissed on Friday afternoon in a Denver court. U.S. District Judge William Martinez threw out the radio DJ’s lawsuit against Taylor Swift.
The Judge ruled that Mueller’s team had not successfully shown that Swift got Mueller fired after she complained to his bosses about his alleged behavior at the meet and greet. Swift’s team has maintained that while Swift told Mueller’s boss about the incident, she did not suggest he be let go.
Swift had asked for $1 million for symbolic damages which she has promised will go to charity.
According to CNN, the jury also found Andrea Swift and Frank Bell, not liable for tortious interference.
Taylor Swift, in a statement after her victory thanked everyone for “fighting for (her) and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.”
“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves,” Swift added.
Doug Baldridge, the singer’s lawyer said that the ruling “not just a win” but “something that can make a difference.”
“It takes people like Taylor, wonderful people like Taylor, who we all know, to stand up and draw these lines. As I said in the closing [argument], that dollar, that single dollar, is of immeasurable value in this ever going fight to figure out where the lines are, what’s right and what’s wrong,” Baldridge added.
Speaking to CNN Monday night, Mueller said: “My heart is still set on proving my innocence,” Mueller said. “I’m resolute.”

Oprah Winfrey opened up to Vogue about weight struggles, aging, depression and her love life

Oprah Winfrey opened up to Vogue about weight struggles, aging, depression and her love life. She explained to the fashion magazine why she never got married to her longtime partner Stedman Graham.
The media mogul and “60 Minutes” contributor said that, for her, it has always been important to “live life on your own terms.” She said that marriage “never came up” between her and Graham.
“Nobody believes it, but it’s true,” she said. “The only time I brought it up was when I said to Stedman, ‘What would have happened if we had actually gotten married?’ And the answer is: ‘We wouldn’t be together.’ We would not have stayed together, because marriage requires a different way of being in this world. His interpretation of what it means to be a husband and what it would mean for me to be a wife would have been pretty traditional, and I would not have been able to fit into that.”
In 2015, she told Shonda Rhimes on “SuperSoul Sunday” that Graham did once ask her to get married.
“The moment he asked me to marry him, I was like ‘Oh, God! Now I actually have to get married?’” she said, adding that they decided to postpone marriage and then never talked about it again. “But what I realized is, I don’t want to be married.”

A memo dated August 12, 2017, purportedly from the union, had circulated on social media claiming they would embark on an indefinite strike beginning Sunday, August 13, 2017.
