August 26, 2013 8:36 pm Kind of surprised there wasn't an article on here about the name change. Oh well. Still excited for this.
August 23, 2013 2:20 pm When it comes down to Batman versus Superman or say Darkseid (in a potential JLA film) I don't think physical strength matters no matter what age you are.
August 23, 2013 2:02 pm @invincipal: I actually think that's exactly what they're going for, the aging Batman. My friend and I were talking about this and we were speculating that Bruce Wayne would take on almost a Lex Luthor type antagonist role in MoS2. The rich industrial genius who objects to Supes enforcing his brand of justice. We even speculated on a Wayne/Luthor team up. Also, I think we're jumping the gun a little on the JLA film. MoS2 needs to be a success first, and I would guess a pretty big one, to green light a JLA film and I'm think that's anything but guaranteed at this point.
August 23, 2013 11:13 am Hahahahahaha that is an amazing analogy.
August 23, 2013 10:54 am I think it bears remembering the initial reaction toward Heather Ledger when it was announced he was cast as The Joker. A lot of negativity and doubts. Turned out pretty well though. Affleck has made some mistakes in his early career but what young actor hasn't? I think he has proven he at least deserves a chance.
August 23, 2013 10:46 am I guess I just disagree with you. I don't think Zathura had any relation to Iron Man other than the fact it included CGI nor do I think Nolan having done several "crime dramas" prepared him fully to do Batman. Particularly considering the crime epic aspect didn't really factor into Batman Begins. I think with The Town and Argo, Affleck has shown that he knows how to construct thrilling action sequences which is a skill that can be applied to something like JLA. The action will be much different and bigger in a JLA film but I think the skill is there. If you disagree that's cool, just differing opinions. I just think people put too much emphasis on directors having done a similar film in their past. Del Toro had never done anything like Pacific Rim before and it was by far the best film of the summer.
August 23, 2013 9:34 am "First of all, nothing in his body of directorial work suggests that he would turn out a decent superhero movie." There was really no indication that Nolan or Favreau could either. They were just experienced directors who had proven to be versatile. Worked out pretty well in both those cases...
August 22, 2013 10:41 am I've never read a Valiant book before. Can I just jump right into this?
