Re: The Batman (2021)

Yay for Turturro but lol at more fucking Falcone.

I guess the reports of a Long Halloween adaptation were true.

Way to break new ground Reeves.

Re: The Batman (2021)

I'm guessing that the audience isn't supposed to get a great sense of many of them, and the characters are mostly only there to serve the plot. Although with characters like Riddler and Penguin there's not much sense to get in the first place in my view. Could have done without Alfred but let's see ...

Re: The Batman (2021)

Leaving Alfred out is impossible, imo. Not an option. They'd be ignoring a huge part of what makes Batman Batman. That's like taking Lois Lane out of a Superman film. It's not that much different than leaving out Robin in my view. He too is a huge part of what makes Batman Batman. Definitely not im...

Was Pierce Brosnan never confirmed as Alfred? I could've sworn he was cast.
I think Brosnan as Alfred was only rumored and not confirmed.

I'm hoping that maybe they leave Alfred out this time around.

Re: The Batman (2021)

Batman Forever succeeds as a memorable summer blockbuster in spite of the questionable acting. It clicks in all the ways Batman & Robin doesn't. The score is great and the action is well done. One thing about the Schumacher films is that they get closer to the heart of what Batman is all about, an ...

Re: The Batman (2021)

I always hated a "young Robin". It seems so irresponsible for Batman to take a kid out to help him fight monsters and other dangerous killers. Plus, it's a little creepy. I like Robin to be college-aged like in the 90's animated series He was college-aged in that series but had been fighting crime ...

Re: The Batman (2021)

All these villains make the movie sound silly as fuck. LOL at the Riddler possibly being the primary villain in a Batman film, but who knows what Reeves and Dano might pull off. I think the only way this film works is if they go extremely weird and balls out crazy, like massive amounts of blood and ...

Re: The Batman (2021)

It ain't that complicated. Tom Hardy's Bane while White clearly wasn't Hispanic. In this case it's more about ethnicity than race.

That reminds me I suppose Liam's Ras al-Ghul wouldn't fly today either. Of course Ras himself was already a racist character, but that's another story.

Re: The Batman (2021)

To be fair to TDKR and any recent adaptations, Catwoman being a heroic ally of Batman is the way the comic books have mostly portrayed her since the late 70s/early 80s. So I can understand why tv and film would want to get out from under the Adam West hold that Catwoman has dealt with in previous de...
