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.
ATTENTION: The rumor about WB's "no jokes" policy is 100% correct. No one should ever doubt any rumor about any upcoming movie, even in cases where it contradicts rumors that have previously been reported. In those cases, both rumors are true.
In other news, Bryan Cranston is playing Lex Luthor, Emily Blunt is Wonder Woman, Benedict Cumberbatch is Martian Manhunter, and that guy from Teen Wolf is Batman.
