    Yeah that was the main reason I wanted to see that too.

    If they actually do a Long Halloween type (first trailer hinted at that) great. This trailer was a bit too action heavy for my tastes.

    That's how it starts. The fever. The rage. The feeling of powerlessness. That turns good men....Cruel - Alfred.

    This may be the only thing that I do that matters - Bruce.

    He seems like the type of Batman who will eventually become Frank Miller’s All Star Batman. Raging, yelling, standing his ground while people shoot him, and punching the shit out of people.

    Not sure why WB would ever venture away from realistic Batman(Its not realistic mind you but some fans call anything dark and noir as realism) mind you its proven along with Joker to an even bigger degree that the serious somber movies in this mythos is what sells
    Its bad news for the fans of the other bat family characters because they thrive on the opposite and need the Jokey comic book aestetic to work as characters.
    You cant do a Nightwing movie or Batgirl movie unless they abandon that

    Affleck was getting slowly conned into doing an Earth One adaption by Johns last I heard which would have been terrible

    Oh lmao.

    Long Halloween is the only type of story I am interested in..we already have too many Batman movies (and I honestly don't find the character as interesting anymore - never thought I would say that considering Batman is what got me into comics).

    Oh...I suppose movies around a proper Batfamily would also be nice.

    To be honest, looking at the trailer, it seems way less realistic than I was expecting when you see the Batmobile dive through fire, how Selina moves, or how many bullets the Batsuit can take.

    I guess how they handle the Batgirl film will be an interesting contrast though they said the fights would be pretty grounded and gritty.

    Please no TLH or All Star influence please. We can aim much higher for Bruce on the characterization front.

    I don't see him going full All-Star just based on this, but Loeb's Bruce can't detect his way out of a paper bag, so I'm hoping TLH isn't a major influence beyond some surface level similarities.

    They also referenced Ego which I think will play a lot into the Bruce/Batman duality.

    Also Telltale with possible Thomas Wayne corruption.

    Personally, I see him as the early days of Affleck's Batman. I could see Pattinson going after Cavill in BvS more than the other Batman.

    Been very funny for me to see casuals on Twitter asking why there’s so much Batman crap in The Flash. Doesn’t he have enough stuff of his own? Also most people are hyped for The Batman but are also baffled as to why it’s disconnected from the DCEU.

    The use of smartphones pretty handily ruins that headcanon lol. Pretty sure this movie will have Battison end with moving away from the ultra violent nihilism he’s been embodying so far.

    Isn't it weird that the money shot in a Flash teaser is Batman and the Batmobile? Although I guess Spider-Man Homecoming had that scene of Spider-Man and Iron Man together that was never even in the film.

    Yeah, I think his character development will be becoming more of a symbol for hope and less for vengeance, because the latter isn't working and Gotham needs the former.

    Although I'm not sure if this film is going to be one with a lot of hope and optimism...

    That’s what happens when the only people who love Ezra Flash are Snyder fans. WB knows they need to get people interested with characters the audience actually cares about. Personally I don’t think this will make a lot of money even if it reviews well, people just don’t like Ezra. Maoma is cool and people liked him from GoT plus Aquaman was dumb fun and China really helped to boost it.

    Definitely not for the majority of the film, but perhaps towards the end. My guess is Battison will be pushed to the brink and tempted to kill. Choosing not to will be where he basically realizes how toxic he’s become and how he’s in danger of letting Gotham consume him. He rededicates himself to his mission but also changes his methods setting up a sequel where he’s on the road to healing.

    I can't even sit through the whole Batman trailer. All I can see is the waster opportunity of the solo batfleck movie. Like, Robert Pattinson doesn't work for me, neither has Batman nor Bruce Wayne here. And King burned any good will I had for Catwoman, so her being there and so prominently is a net loss for me.

    I wonder if it's too late to cash in on that 89' nostalgia with the Flash. I don't want to make people feel old, but at this point there are going to be kids going to the theaters who have parents that are too young to remember the Keaton movies. Plus even if there were, cashing out on that nostalgia with the Flash is blatantly desperate. I'm hearing about how that Sopranos prequel movie did pretty poorly possibly because people moved on from the Sopranos a long time ago.
