    You know what? I don't blame Joel for the batnipples. Clooney had enough clout at the time to put his foot down and refuse to wear the batnipples costume. He's a clever enough man to have known it was ridiculous.

    Fair enough and I get that viewpoint. And while I agree that he's been doing some great work ever since I was always under the impression that his performance as Batman was always considered a bit campy. But don't get me wrong, I adore both movies and would have loved to see a third one. Let's see how they work this out in the end.

    Thinking about it, he's probably my favorite Bruce Wayne in terms of personality with Affleck being the most impressive Batman visually for me.

    Random thought:
    I loved the idea of Schwarzenegger as Mr Freeze, it just was too over the top and ridicilous as was the movie. What'd be a good modern casting for Freeze? I'd love to see Fassbender doing it. Other obvious choices would be Ed Harris (too old I guess), Mark Strong (is in Shazam already) or even Stanley Tucci.

    there's of course, speculation, wishing, that Keaton returning as Batman can eventually lead to a Batman Beyond film.

    Would be amazing. As for his appearance in The Flash movie, new details have been revealed:

    - No Thomas Wayne in the script at all.
    - Keaton will appear in full Batman costume (not just as Bruce Wayne).

    it'd also be awesome and fitting if Keaton starred in a Dark Knight Returns film...

    I'm definitely excited (and surprised!) by the prospect of Keaton returning, but I'm trying to manage those expectations. I think it'll be a pretty minor role where he only gets 10-15 minutes of screen time, max. It'll still be awesome to see him return as Bruce Wayne/Batman, but I really hope this Flash movie is good enough to earn his appearance and involvement. Most of DC's latest cinematic offerings have ranged from mediocre to embarrassingly awful (but that's just my opinion).

    Not the first time Whedon's whipped up a controversy storm. Remember that Black Widow scene in Age of Ultron? His leaked Wonder Woman script was apparently also hugely sexist.
    Plus there was the way he treated his wife.

    Not a massive fan of calling out people without evidence to back it up. However, Whedon has been so hypocritical about his supposed feminist leanings that I'm willing to give Fisher the benefit of the doubt.

    This means that there are now three different actors slated to play Batman in the next few years.

    Would not be surprised if they grab Kilmer and Clooney (edit: and Bale, and the voice of Kevin Conroy!) to fill out their cinematic multiverse.

    Well, Conroy already played Batman in the Arrowverse live on screen and we have Iain Glen on Titans. That's a hell of a lot of Batmen these days.

    I'm very stoked to see Affleck back in the cowl, for me personally his physicality is perfect for the role and if whatever project comes out of that deal is as good as the warehouse fight, his solo scene in JL and his cameos in Suicide Squad I'm happy.

    FYI - Cosmic Book News is a misogynistic website born out of comicsgate, an online movement of far-right incels who are obsessed with hating Brie Larson and Daisy Ridley because they all secretly want to fuck them but know that they never will. Their article about Affleck cites 4chan and YouTube channels for this, so grand canyons of salt on this one.

    I'd also personally prefer if folks didn't link to them because they're horrible troll people. They have a dumb article on their page about Dean Cain's idiotic interview on Fox News where he said that he wouldn't be allowed as Superman to say "truth, justice and the American way," which was then debunked by comic writer Tom King who recently used the phrase earlier this year in a Superman comic.

    A nice breakdown of the interaction can be found here... (round two was golden)

    Honestly I've never heard of her before. I want to see what she's going to do with the role. Should be interesting.

    So, I guess I'll be subscribing to HBO Max.

    No doubt. With the team behind Boardwalk Empire and that HBO production value? Dang.

    So that DC streaming service is going to be folded into max sooner rather than later I'd would assume. Always was inevitable

    Alot of us are hoping that they just keep it as a comic service and just take all the video content to HBOMAX. The comics are my main use, and I would hate to lose that.

    I actually didn't realize it had comics as well
