    August 25, 2013 12:13 am @iroberts007 "toned is enough" I agree I bought Keaton and don't remember him being big at all. My GF won't let me forget Affleck's shirtless scene in Argo he wasn't huge but I think he had a bit of a six pack and imo he was toned. I think being a leading man in Hollywood requires you to have a personal trainer and I know from Kevin Smith's podcast he has a personal chief to cook him certain foods for his diet. I don't think it matters that he have the body that Batman would have in real life cause the whole concept is so unrealistic to begin with.
    August 24, 2013 4:24 am Pointless question: IMDB list the movie as Batman vs. Superman is there a chance that will be the title or is it officially Man of Steel 2?
    August 24, 2013 4:12 am I never thought of Bale being unknown then but I guess your right, I loved Empire of the Sun growing up and always knew of Bale as the kid in that movie and had a hard time getting use to him when he started showing up in very adult roles like American Psycho.

    August 22, 2013 1:54 pm @IthioSapien ok I see what you mean, in that case I hope that DC doesn't not connect GL and maybe just uses it like the 2002 Hulk so they don't have to go through the whole GL origin again.
    August 22, 2013 1:20 pm I agree with you @Will Magnus the DC's movie-verse isn't broken and Marvel isn't perfect, I thought while a little entertaining Thor and Incredible Hulk were pretty bad and Iron Man 2 seemed unnecessary and just made to take money from people who were excited about Avengers. The only really bad DC movie for me was GL, movies like MoS and DKR for me had a lot of problems and a lot I liked about them. I am a little confused about @IthoSapien saying we should only count MoS and GL? If you are comparing DC to Marvel then for me you count the DC movies that have come out since the formation of Marvel studio and that starts with that summer were Iron Man and Batman Begins both came out. It doesn't matter to me if the films connect or not Marvel decided to connect their movies and that is working for them DC seems to be leaving Nolan's Batman alone and not connecting it to MoS which is fine but I don't think that means you can't count them and I would be a little surprised if the kept Ryan Reynolds as GL.
    August 20, 2013 11:07 pm @USPUNX I understand your argument and maybe its not fair to compare how long it takes to consume something but most comics aren't made to be just works of are they are a consumer product that are made to entertain and therefore have to compete against other forms of entertainment. I often find myself comparing single issues of comic and single episodes of TV shows because they are about the same price and that doesn't seem fair. I might be wrong but I think if @Gallowglass talked his friends out of illegally download, I think they would keep buying issues of comics for a while but at some point when they would start looking at something like Superior Spider-Man on Comixology that is 3.99 and then click over to iTunes and see an episode of Game of Thrones is 3.49 and think "you know I think with my last 4 bucks I would get a lot more out of a hour of Game of Thrones than 22 pages of Spider-Man. And probably end up sticking with buying one or two comics regularly but use the rest of their entertainment money for other things. I'm not saying comics are priced wrong, I think 3.99 or 2.99 is a good price for a new comic even a digital one but, I think that the price of digital comics should drop overtime and not just to 1.99 but to where comics that are five or ten years old should be .99 or even .50.
    August 20, 2013 1:05 am I keep thinking about piracy and about how back when I was in college I lived with 4 guys and we read a lot of the same books so we would split up who bought what and share. But what if we hadn't lived together and we spit up our books scanned them and emailed the files just to each other but erased the files once we read the issue. At the end of the day it isn't much different but seems wrong where letting each other read our books seemed ok. It just is interesting to me how big of a roll the online part has in my views of piracy.
    August 20, 2013 12:48 am I agree with you USPUNX but I, and I hope I don't get yelled at, think there is varying degrees of "wrongness" to pirating comics and some forms of pirating I do see more like going 60 in a 55. While all pirating is stealing and wrong for me there is a difference between a person who is downloading the newest books on Wednesday and a person who is downloading old 1960s Batman to find out about Zur-En-Arrh or a college kid who buys 8 volumes of Y the last man and reads two at B&N.
