Attention: Superman and Batman crossover movie announced to be released in 2015!

Christian Bale won't be returning as Batman, no real loss there.

Henry Cavill, however, will be returning. And Christopher Nolan isn't directing, Zack Snyder will be directing. Pity, because Snyder is a terrible director; I wish Nolan can direct it.

I've got news for you: I don't go to superhero movies - I catch some of it on cable, that's about it.

I don't see the problem in other people wanting to watch it; it's escapism. Do you expect every movie to be some avant-garde film about Soviet-era Russia?

They're trying to compete with "The Avengers" one of the biggest and best films of all-time. They don't understand that people took to "The Avengers" in big part because they were sick of Nolan's dark, gritty, realistic comic book film world. "The Avengers" was bright, campy, humorous, and had everything that was missing from "The Dark Knight" series.

You actually thought Bale was a good Batman? What was with that ridiculous smoker's voice when he put the cape on?

Nolan's films aren't the comic book. He couldn't put the majority of the comic's villains into them because they wouldn't work in the environment he created. A film that was based on comic would have been able to.

"Batman Forever" was a hit, as were Burton's films, which were also camp.

How many comics have you read? Do you realize how many eras, how many interpretations of Batman there are?

The dark, gritty, gothic stuff started in the '80s thanks to Frank Miller.

r27, Burton struck just the right amount of grit and camp. "Batman Returns" is my favorite in the entire franchise, for example. But you cannot defend Batman 3 and 4 to me. Just because something is a commercial hit does not make it inherently good.

Honey, there are millions of films that are "intelligent" and "good" produced every year. They're just not made by Hollywood. Honestly, do you just rely on your local AMC to see movies?

Film is better than ever today, it's just not made by Hollywood. Hollywood buys up the independent features and distributes them.

People have been brainwashed into think that every film that is made, or is going to be made, is going to be made by Hollywood. Hollywood is only good for CGI films.

Talking about Oscars -- "The King's Speech" "The Artist," "The Queen," were not produced by Hollywood.

You really should make use of the internet and find amazing new films to watch.

Batman is about darkness and pain. Always has been, always will be. Cavill was laughable as Superman, they need to recast.

by Anonymousreply 3007/20/2013

r28, I agree about Burton, and that was actually what I was originally referring to. Take note that I said 'camp' among other things. It's one element that should be added to the bunch.

People bring up the commercial aspect, and I was pointing out that the third film did actually make money, in fact, "The Avengers" is sort of like the third Batman. "The Avengers" is fun and bright. It's not pretentious. I love Batman having a social-tone to it, and I do love the gothic element, but Nolan's were not gothic, and they were pretentious as hell. It's as if he didn't want to make a comic book film, it was beneath him.

I want a cerebral "Batman" movie, but for Christ's sake, remind us that it's based on a comic book, and lighten the fuck up a tad!

Forgive me since I'm not an expert on this genre: If there's already a Superman, what would be the point of Batman?

by Anonymousreply 13707/21/2013

The issue with Superman is that he's not a particularly complex character (unlike Batman) so anyone who plays him will be unfavorably compared to those who play more interesting or witty superheroes.

Christopher Reeve was remembered fondly for his Superman (even before he had his accident) largely because he was the first one to do the part in the recent past. If he had been the 2nd or 3rd actor to play the role, he'd be torn apart the way Routh and Cavill are now.

But I thought this new Superman movie makes the character more complex. No?

It's going to be a thankless job for the actor who plays Superman. The good-boy-bad-boy dynamic is inevitable, which means the Batman is going to get all the good lines. Plus the writers will feel an obligation to make the characters somewhat equal in ability, even though Batman is a normal human with an expensive hobby, and Superman is a godlike alien. Superman's style is going to get cramped.

One thing I liked about the 3rd Nolan/Batman movie was that the showed how hard playing Batman is on a man's body. But we're not going to see anything that realistic, if he's going to play buddy cop with Superman.

The point of Batman is that Superman is in Metropolis and Batman is in Gotham City. Superman can't be expected to stop crime in the entire world.

Christian Bale was the perfect Batman for the Nolan films, but he's not coming back. Who will be the next Batman? I mean I wonder if they're going to go with a name equal to Cavill's or a lesser/well- known? Billing will be interesting.

I get the impression that since this is Snyder's baby, it'll be Superman feat. Batman, so it'll be a lesser known actor than Cavill.

R118 = Ashley Hamilton

Bale did nothing. He was boring as fuck, and added nothing. Anyone could have done that part.

[quote]I highly doubt that Cavill will land Bond.

As long as he's Superman, the studios will never go for it. They will not go for one actor playing two iconic characters. Not gonna happen.

Haven't they already filmed a bunch of movies where they had a bunch of comic book superheros in it...the avengers?

Up for original thread.

The point of Barman that differentiates him from Superman is his mind. t isn't about being able to physically hang, it's that he is supposed to be this very cunning genius which the Nolan movies completely failed to capture. That is one things I hope they get right here

Luke Evans for Bats. I am going to keep repeating it, he would own the role and play well off of Cavill.

Fuck the screen test. Can you imagine these two beauties getting it on?

They'll get Bale back wait and see. They'll draw out all the endless speculation first, to keep interest going in the film. WB will open up the checkbook trust.

MOS just didn't do quite well enough to lay the entire next film on Cavill and another unknown; no way will they bank on that with all the money they'll be investing on the next movie plus the JL film after.

by Anonymousreply 15207/24/2013

WB has already cut some of the financial backing on "Man from UNCLE," so they don't believe Cavill and Hammer can bring in enough money.

They're obviously going to have to throw A LOT of money at Bale to get him back because he was pretty adamant that he was done.

what about Robin?

That or give him other things he might want, such as backing smaller high-quality projects he might want do. He's never been the greedy type, has often said he doesn't choose roles based on $.

They'll need someone of Bale's caliber to carry the movie because lord knows Cavill can't. Even his most fanatical fangurls have to admit he doesn't have enough going beyond his looks to carry the story itself.

The very idea is ridiculous considering the Batman trilogy just ended. WTF would they immediately go back to the well?

Why not Superman-Wonder Woman if they're not going to give WW her own movie? Or have Superman fight other villains? Have a Superman trilogy before you try Batman... again.

Latest rumor: Orlando Bloom

by Anonymousreply 15808/11/2013

Christ help us. Bloom? He's like what, 5 feet tall? If you want a dwarf Batman.

by Anonymousreply 15908/11/2013

He's listed as 5'10" so... 5'8"?

Why do I still want MIchelle Pfeiffer reprising her role as Catwoman in this?

by Anonymousreply 16208/11/2013

I don't know considering she's well over 50 years old. Yes I'm ageist.

by Anonymousreply 16308/11/2013

Henry Cavill and Orlando Bloom?

Only if Hollywood is trying to exploit the slash-loving-fangirl market.

by Anonymousreply 16408/11/2013

Benedict Cumberbatch.

by Anonymousreply 16508/17/2013

Bloom? Cumberbatch? Those two make no sense for Bruce Wayne / Batman. None.
