Nolan himself contradicted the notion of realism in TDKR by having Bruce Wayne heal his broken back without any medical attention. Why can't WB just embrace the fantasy aspect of superheroes like Marvel has with their movies??

It's an approach that's been very successful for them.  And maybe good that WB are doing things differently to Marvel.

I just saw this posted as someone's status update on Facebook and chuckled - "Man Of Steel director's cut reveals whole film was about Bizarro Superman."

As for the Batman/Superman movie, I'd nominate The Brave and The Bold as the title. This way I can say "Hell no, I'm not going to see The Brave and The Bold!"

The Brave and the Bold should be Hal and Barry, though! ;)

Grant Morrison has weighed in against the neck snapping.

And re-growing cartilage. Unless the R&D department of Wayne Enterprises developed a GS-5,000,000 glucosamine supplement.

Apparently, Frank Miller will be meeting with Snyder soon to discuss the Superman/Batman project. A source of Miller tells, "Frank had no idea the announcement in San Diego was going to happen so it did come as a surprise. Hes going to be meeting up with Zack in the next few days to go over the plans for the Superman film so things should be clearer after that." 

Hollywood ever read anything besides Miller's Dark Knight Returns when it comes to these characters???

I looked up to see what Grant Morrison had to say about "Man of Steel" since James mentioned it. Wow! I am in COMPLETE agreement with Morrison on this statement:




Grant Morrison: "... I don't want to sound like some fuddy-duddy Silver Age apologist but I've noticed a lot recently of people saying Batman should kill the Joker and, yeah, Superman should kill, he should make the tough moral decisions we all have to make every day. I don't know about you, but the last moral decision I made didn't have anything to do with killing people.

And I don't think many of us ever have to make the decision whether or not to kill. In fact, the more you think about it, unless you're in one of the Armed Forces, killing is illegal and immoral. Why would we want our superheroes to do that?..."

Illegal, yes.

But not always immoral, IMHO.

As usual, I have no idea what Grant Morrison is talking about-- even when I agree with his conclusions.

"I don't know about you, but the last moral decision I made didn't have anything to do with killing people."

...and the last thing anyone should do is limit Superman to facing the moral decisions that face Grant Morrison.

And choosing NOT to kill is making a moral decision about killing people and it is what Superman should have done-- and I even think that's what Morrison is trying to say-- but, sheesh.

Morrison definitely seems to be all over the map. Some of the things he says makes me cringe.

He was very instrumental in my dropping certain books. Not a fan. I don't think he gets superheroes. At all.

This does nothing for me. Can't really be upset...I like Affleck. I hated
Daredevil but I've liked him in most of the rest of the films I've seen him in.
Talented writer/director.

Batman...meh!

I don't see it. I honestly like Affleck, and am glad he's in the middle of his big comeback, but he doesn't seem to have the necessary intensity for the role. But then, DAREDEVIL was 10 years ago , so maybe he can pull out a few surprises. But I wasn't wild about that particular performance to begin with, if that's any indication of how he would handle Batman.

Oh well. With the unpleasant, morose, joyless, decidedly kid-unfriendly triad of Goyer, Snyder & Nolan still behind this, I'll be skipping it anyway.

Retracted my comment; I hated MAN OF STEEL so I wouldn't have seen this anyway.

Has there ever been an actor cast as Batman and considered ideal for the role? I'm not a big fan of Affleck but he's NOT the worse person for the role of Batman... heck, Micheal Keaton pulled it off way back when... I'm more concerned with the story they come up with for this movie.

"By playing a superhero in Daredevil, I have inoculated myself from ever 
playing another superhero. Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation 
for me and something I wouldn't want to do again soon."

I won't be seeing the movie, as I haven't seen and will not see MAN OF STEEL, but I don't see a problem with Affleck as Batman. I can certainly see him doing a decent job in the Bruce Wayne side of the role.

In a good Batman movie, I can see Affleck being okay, just as I think George Clooney would have been fine in a better version.

If I'm not mistaken, this will be the first time the role of Batman has gone to an actor who is older than his predecessor.
