    I had the same problem with McConaughey, and even if Sarsgaard fits a bit better into the wage structure they seem to be going for among the actors I think it's more likely that he's playing the...

    I wonder if they'll take the chance to retcon some of the stuff with Blofeld from Spectre, or double down on it? I mean, it would be the simplest thing in the world to throw in one or two lines about...
  3. I don't think sexual objectification in and of...

    I don't think sexual objectification in and of itself is necessarily wrong, and these stories take place in a heightened reality, but still... Anyone who sees this should be deeply embarrassed.
  4. Having a tightly shared universe screwed WB over...

    Having a tightly shared universe screwed WB over massively with the whole Justice League fiasco. When they realized that the tone and story they had locked in on weren't connecting there was no way...

    ...especially since pretty much all the rest of that story was already adapted in The Dark Knight.

    Hm. One of my biggest doubts about the rumors of "The Batman" being indebted to The Long Halloween was that they hadn't cast any mafiosos, but suddenly Falcone is confirmed. Then again, as good as...
  7. No, they won't.

    No, they won't.

    I guess this means that the buddy cop-film with Hal Jordan and John Stewart that Geoff Johns was writing is now dead?
  9. I think it's more about diluting the brand....

    I think it's more about diluting the brand. There's still an exclusivity to Batman, when he's in something people get excited, start buzzing, and expect all stops to be pulled. WB probably thinks...

    Scarecrow and Riddler definitely does in my book (although I'm sure there are portrayals of them where they don't as well) but I'm 100 % with you on Penguin, I'm always annoyed when he's portrayed as...

    But Croc is just a really strong guy, there's nothing about him that need some kind of special containment. I like the cannibalism-angle better, or even that he's just seen as a straight up monster...

    I think he was originally put in Arkham after getting beaten in Knightfall due to being n a catatonic state, but if we're following the VERY fast and loose rules of mental illness and insanity in the...
  13. I wonder how stuff like this works, as it's...

    I wonder how stuff like this works, as it's highly likely that Leto originally signed on for eventual sequels and the like. Will WB have to buy him out of his contract, or is there some force majeure...
  14. I'm actually very curious about what direction...

    I'm actually very curious about what direction that film would have taken. As you say, Deathstroke pretty much only makes sense as an antagonist if you're going to focus heavily on action (although...

    I'm OK with the Nigma as his original name as well, but changing to it fits with Riddler's character as I see it. It's a small, silly and petulant attempt to try to bend the world to his (insane)...

    I think Chuck Dixon introduced that retcon in the comics some time in the 90's. I quite like it.
  17. I agree about Future's End being terrible, but...

    I agree about Future's End being terrible, but surely Batman Eternal was always going to be 52 issues, covering a whole year? I remember that being a big USP and part of the marketing from the start.
  18. WB marketed the hell out of it, probably for way...

    WB marketed the hell out of it, probably for way more than $55 million, and it wouldn't surprise me if Phoenix has some kind of percentage on the box office take. Still impressive though.
  19. I don't know who any of those characters are,...

    I don't know who any of those characters are, although I'm guessing Mongal has something to do with Mongul?
  20. That's my point, genuinely believing that you're...

    That's my point, genuinely believing that you're a great enough guy to be the best option bar none to rule a country is something I associate with Doom rather than someone like Aquaman, even if he's...

    It's an easy way for writers to do palace intrigue in a while, but the "good monarch" trope has very much worn out its welcome for me. It's a great fit for guys like Doctor Doom, not so much a hero...

    It's one of few blockbuster mystery-type stories in recent memory that actually has a decent and satisfying conclusion, and it was fun following it week-to-week, but you could easily tear out a...

    ...or maybe people just didn't enjoy a film and don't think adding more of the same to it would make them like it more? That's psychopathic?

    Anyway, re. test screenings, David F. Sandberg who...

    I just want to post this educated guess for posterity: Matt Reeves' Batman film is a loose adaptation of, or at least takes elements from, Broken City, and Jonah Hill is playing Arnold Wesker/The...
