I'm also am a writer, average cook, blogger of course, collector, and ranter.

Okay, the more I think about it and hear what other people are saying about it——-I’m going to reserve my judgment on Ben Affleck’s Batman until I see him in the suit and the trailer. Although I don’t agree with him in the role, he has talent. Like I said last night when I was mad ass pissed like millions of others, maybe he learned his mistakes from Daredevil. Hell, his performance as Batman would be on the same bar as Bale’s(but hopefully he won’t sound like a busted car) Shit, he’s even friends with Kevin Smith. he could ask him a few pointers on how Batman should be portrayed on the big screen. He has the means on being a good Batman. Like I said, I’ll reserve my judgement until I see the trailer and him with the suit(hope to god they don’t bring back the nipples)

The New Batman has been choosen according to IGN for the next Man of Steel/Batman crossover movie——————Ben Affleck

Let that sink in ya’ll head for a moment, Ben Affleck is going to play Batman! The last comic book movie he played in was in Daredevil where he played Matt Murdock aka Daredevil————-BOY WE KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT, RIGHT!?!?!?!! And this is the guy who’s going to play That Black Ninja Nigga named Wayne? Wayne, would go up to the producers or casting agents of this movie, OWNED each and every one of them and force them to pick someone else. I’m sorry, but no disrespect to Mr. Affleck you’re a terrific actor and hell of a good director. But your performance in Daredevil was poor and below average. BUT, you can prove me wrong. Maybe you’ve learned your mistakes from Daredevil and had become better. PROVE ME WRONG! This is Batman after all, one of the Big Three. One of the biggest comic book characters in history, go big or go home, sir.

My thoughts on The Dark Knight Rises

In 1988 Tim Burton brought us the first Batman film starring Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Taking more of the mood from the critically acclaimed and my personal favorite graphic novel Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns instead of the 1960s campy, rockem sockem, word pop-up mash up. It completely change how we see Batman on both the comics and onto the screen. Spawning three sequels with the later two being directed by Joel Schumacher(Shame on you for Batman and Robin which I will never talk about unless I want my BP to spike) 

But it was the year 2005 that Batman gotten into the real, thanks to British director Christopher Nolan. His first film in his trilogy Batman Begins showed us how Batman would turn out in today’s society with a realistic view. And it worked. He then followed that up with The Dark Knight which made the Joker scary as fuck. This year brings us to the last of the trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises. Now my thoughts.

THAT WAS THE BEST DAMN MOVIE I’VE SEEN IN A LONG DAMN TIME!!!! Bane was absolutely viscous. Taking away the sour taste that was from Batman and Robin when Bane was a mindless drone. This Bane came straight from Knightfall, he will fuck you up. In this case from the movie, HE FUCKED BATMAN UP.  The fight between them in the sewers, EPIC! Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, she was great. But I noticed a few fan-winks Mr. Daggett straight from the animated series and the design of the Bat, come on that came from Batman Beyond. And Miranda Tate and the Save the World Foundation I knew she was Talia Al’Goul and they tried to play off that Bane was Ra’s son. A great twist and it could’ve worked, but that would’ve pissed off some fans. Understandable. And she worked as well. But the best scene was the war where Gotham’s finest led by Batman were taking on Bane. And by the end, all I have to say is WOW. Now since this series has now ended, I’m now curious on how Chris Nolan and Zach Snyder would work with Man of Steel. Would the god-like Superman fit in in the real world? We’ll find out next summer. But for now, I must say Thank you, Mr. Nolan.
