    I can't imagine if Kurt Cobain was alive he'd be even remotely okay with his song being remixed and used on a Hollywood superhero movie.

    Other than that, it looks better than I thought it would.

    It will be good to see a movie focused on the Riddler. He is such an underrated Batman villain. Sure we already saw him done wrong, but we can hopefully see him done right.

    Yup I do remember reading that and I applaud the effort he puts into his roles, even if it's extreme sometimes. Not asking that much from Pattinson, just that he at least looks like he put some effort in, in any case we'll see when the movie comes out.
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    This movie is pretty much the start of batman. Be weird if he was peak buff straight away.

    You may have also noticed the tactical boots. This is a batman in progress learning who he is and isn't any where near close to his final form so to speak. Not saying Robert will get buff for more films but it makes sense within the context of the character/movie
    Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes are SP's.

    The modern abbreviations "cuck" and "simp" originated from the alt-right and Redpiller cesspools. Staying away from guys using the terms in every sentence is adviced.

    But the song worked, didn't it? We know Dave Grohl and Novosilec cash in on Nirvana all the time. My 90s teenage self feels bad that the song was used....but I fucking love that song.

    I kind of equate it to that Metallica song in the Punisher trailer....30 years after the fact, I feel like it only brings more attention to the music, rather than it be "selling out."

    Jeffree Wright is a goddamn amazing actor though. I have no problems with it. And Jim Gordon is too important in the Batman universe to be written as a new character. Hell, his daughter becomes one of Batman's closest confidantes/sidekicks.
    Yeah, that’s what I meant about if it’s supposed to be going down a darker route and he was hitting him because of anger or at his wits end.
    As far as a new character, I didn’t mean writing Jim Gordon as a new character. I meant leave Gordon as he is and just make up new characters that can be in the spotlight. Make a rookie or a new detective, or even someone from the comics that people might not know like Lucius Fox. New characters can be just as amazing and prolific, hence why I brought up Harley.

    Courtney Love owns 90% of Nirvana. It was most likely just a cash grab for her.

    Ya, it wasn't bad and helped set a tone. Still kind of sad seeing someones music get used, whom if they were alive, would never have allowed it because it goes against their artistic integrity.

    The new flash film? How big of a roll will he have?
    I enjoyed Afflecks methodical and raw power, we just got to see so little of...
    Surprised that Ezra Miller is still in the film after video of supposedly choking a fan in Iceland.

    Yeah...overall it "looks" good but...I'm stepping back on my enthusiasm.
    Characterization will suffer if some shown aren't just cameos.

    Bale really reks his body, that was his pre-Batman role:



    Regarding Pattinson, it's really weird. He looks great in the costume, completely non-Bruce Wayne w/o it (looks waaay to young). And someone should be fired from the marketing team for that thumbnail shot. Holy crap, was bad.

    I think concerns about Pattinson's appearance are overblown. Like, sure...he's got longer hair and less clean cut than we're used to seeing on Bruce Wayne, but I don't see it as a big deal.



    The biggest thing people were talking about before Suicide Squad came out was that Joker's ridiculous appearance...but it turned out that that was the least of that movies problems. Appearances aren't everything. Maybe this version of the character simply hasn't perfected the dual persona yet; projecting the cool, collected playboy/businessman Bruce vs the brutal Batman.

    Yeah, he does kinda have that look.

    Looks like a high budget Batman fan film and I don’t mean that as a bad thing

    Spoiler alert. The left picture isn't Bruce Wayne. The right picture IS Bruce Wayne.

    The left is Thomas Elliot.

    doubtful.

    Riddler is the main villain of the movie. Doubt they would blow batman's ID for a sub plot in the first movie.
