Default Re: Do you think the new Batman actor will get "Lazenby'd"?

I wouldn't say Kilmer was the lazenby of batman just due to the fact that his film was actually more successful than the last Keaton batman film, at least Box Office wise. Not that many people remember this any more but Forever was actually seen as the film to bring back Batman at the time.

Clooney maybe but by then he only had to replace Kilmer. I'd put Bale in the category of Connery and Reeve just due to the fact they defined a franchise character through multiple successful films. I think a Batman introduced in a Jl or WF without his own film first will face a similar backlash from the public.
