Re: "...a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent": Does this not worry anyone els
It's kind of interesting that they went this route, since their initial comments were that Superman was to be the first hero who would inspire other people like Bruce Wayne to fight crime and such. I didn't completely like that idea though, so this is fine to me. I don't mind an older Batman, I just didn't want a geriatric Batman. That's why I hated the idea of Josh Brolin. He might only be 46 but he looks more like he's 56.
