BUT let me play devils advocate her for just a sec. - What if it was implied that Ben Affleck and Christian Bale are one in the same just years later.... ex. Katie Holmes and Maggie Gylenhal are Rachel. There was no explanation to why there was an actress change they just did it and moved on. If they did the same with Ben and THEN MAYBE use your 20 min prologue for the first few minutes of a stand alone batman movie to just bridge the gap then MAYBE JUST MAYBE I could probably sorta kinda possibly be down with it except for...
2. I don't want TDKT to be F***ED with! I loved the movies and are for me personally the best batman and comic book movies to date! We should all just move on and just let it be.
Final verdict: Mildly intresting but nah.
I agree but at the same time, im expecting the intro to be in Gotham. Drones are doing the job, then we go to Bruce in the cave where he converses with Alfred about Superman. Then it transitions to Metropolis where Clark and Lois are at work with Perry. This is how i see it going.
I dont want TDKT messed with either. Now that i know it's all one big money fest to combat Avengers by bringing in a damn model for Wonder Woman, with the inclusion of Flash (?), Nightwing, Lex Luthor, maybe Doomsday..there's just no way Bale would return for this. Nolan wouldnt allow it and so im happy.
But yes they could have made Affleck the Bale version but you still have to take too much time to explain why Bruce is back in Gotham. Sure we know Affleck's version is retired and in his early 40s, but now that Grayson is involved it doesnt make sense. If they were bringing back JGL id say sure. But that's not happening.
