The new Superman and Batman movie

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...ntcmp=features

I know this is from FoxNews, but dammit all... this just f'n sucks. We finally had a badass Batman in Bale (check him out in Reign of Fire if you haven't seen it as well).

Way to go Warner and DC to screw up any chance you had at matching the success of Disney/Marvel's Avengers.

Damn I thought I would be the first....I am still in WTF mode honestly...this response was similar when the Frey's killed off Cat and Rob on Game of Thrones....After reading/watching it...i just sat there sobbing watching a blank screen lol. It is not to insult Ben who has become one of WB's biggest stars of late. He has grown and matured into one hell of a Director/Actor. Does he have what it takes to play a 40 something batman??? HELL NAW!

Bale pretty much nailed and slightly reinvented batman. We have come to love the story that Nolan put together using the DC universe. Personally I can't see Ben in batman gear fighting Henry at all...Sure WB's you owe Ben for bringing you best picture and butt loads of money...but have you forgotten Daredevil???? The voice, the presence, the hand to hand combat, the look...can Ben capture the quality that is Batman on screen? Personally I wish they would of went another direction with this.....but I will try to give them some support until I see a teaser or trailer for the movie.

Of course, I don't know which is worse... Ben Affleck or Ryan Gossling? There is no way this is going to work, period. Hell, a Christophe Reeve stricken to his wheelchair is a more believable Batman than those two. I mean, I thought they could never out-shat Val Kilmer, but I think this just might do it.

Re: The new Superman and Batman movie

Personally Ryan would of been worse lol.....scrawny ass dude with those puppy dog eyes....not even gonna work.... Ben can actually work if he gets in proper shape and darken his acting skills a bit. Ben has actually been on a role lately...The Town and Argo being successful movies. The whole Daredevil just puts a bad taste in my mouth. He made the blind avenger totally cheesy and comedic. I think that Henry and Ben will need to work really hard to pull off the legends in this future film. Now that MOS had it's reboot and we have seen the new Superman...wondering just what WB's has in mind for their batman. Will this coincide with the Batman trilogy or will this be a fresh take on the Dark Knight?

Red Hood vs Nightwing......the pilot....I really hope this gets all the funding it needs...it can seriously become a great web series like Mortal Kombat and Halo.

Re: The new Superman and Batman movie

Apparently Hollywood wants to kill DC and Warner Bros. The pages is no longer loading, but last night, I saw where Yahoo! and CNN were saying that fans and producers were wanting Justin Beiber to play the role of Robin or Nightwing in the upcoming films with Aflac as Batman.

Re: The new Superman and Batman movie

That was fake. Beiber was on a parody show spoofing Batman vs superman.

You sure? The article I read was under CNN's entertainment section with no video.

Edit: I think you may be right now. The article is now including the tidbit about a tweet including the verbage: funny.... or die.

Re: The new Superman and Batman movie

I'm going to assume the "two" you're talking about are Afleck and Reeve, since Gosling has never played a comic book character *cough*Reynolds*cough*. Right? No way you could make that mistake.

Re: The new Superman and Batman movie

Only two actors to ruin a comic book character?

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ...

Ryan Reynolds, Anna Paquin, those two douche boys who fought over her, Halle Berry, George Clooney, Uma Therman, Arnold Swarzenegger, everyone who's played Robin after Dick Grayson, everyone in the Fantastic Four, Topher Grace/James Franco/Tobey Macquire in Spiderman-3, Jennifer Garner (worse than Affleck)... surely I'm missing someone... hell, for as well as he's done, Hugh Jackman's turn as Wolverine has had some cringe-worthy moments, particularly in the all around bad Last Stand and Origins (my personal beef is they completely out hero-complexed, at the expense of Cyclops, him rather than maintaining his loner, surly side).

Superhero movies are full of competent actors who do terrible jobs, either on their own part or those of the movie makers. I don't even think we can completely blame Affleck for Daredevil - it was ill-conceived in its entirety.

Quite right about Daredevil. But my beef with Aflac in general for any super-hero movie... he just doesn't have the voice for it. Let's be brutally honest, animation allows for more heroic feats and outlandish events. But the one "human" aspect is the voice actor. Hamill does a perfect job as Joker, but to see the man as Joker, we would all probably laugh. Jeff Blum, and the numerous characters he has voiced...

I'm not a fan of Alfac, but that's my opinion. But I'm sure many will agree, his voice isn't "heroic" like a Blum or Conway.
