I just state things as I see them. I'm not here to spare feelings.

Because same is not the same as similar.

Things change dude. Doc Ock got a wife. An equivalent of Robin can become Batman and it would be just as faithful.

His crucial character moments were basically all in his exposition which were all about him. While he didn't show it. He did tell us. And only when he was with Bruce or on active duty did he seem to let his guard down.

A supporting character doesn't need to make a big life changing revelation. He made a small change. He still made a change. He didn't make "no change." "No change" would mean "no change" not "small change."

I'd trust him, he gave no signs of being any more psychologically damaged than Bruce.

I'm naturally heated. And I off-set things with biting sarcasm which typically makes me sound even more heated. Also I have my thermostat up to 210...

I can't seriously believe that JGL will be playing Batman. It's over.

They could make Blake work.

You could have the same dynamic in the league. We can say this because Blake is practically a blank slate (the only thing we know is that he shares a similar past to Bruce Wayne, with his parents being gunned down in front him) and they could write him to be like Batman. You could literally write all the lines for Bruce, switch Blake in there, and it'd be fine.

However, this begs the question - why not just use Bruce Wayne...

And you're welcome to believe that but fact of the matter is none of us is the president of WB. Unless... are you a evil alien tech thingy created by Lex Luthor in his partnership with the Joker to kill the President of WB and there-in-by take his place to forever kill John Blake?

If so? I'm so out of here......... my MacBook can't stand to catch a parasite at this hour.

No worries. Its been a good give-and-take but I think we can both agree its getting a bit repetitive now... this is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Unlike Batman and the Joker, I'm not destined to do this forever... so I'm outta here for now.

Actually this is repetitive.

I may tell jokes, but -- it's a coping mechanism, you know... like Johnny Storm, Terry McGinnis, Peter Parker, all the greats.

ADDING: I'm bored...



Comically to others I never sound as sarcastic to others as I sound to myself.

I should've put "... not yet" at the end of my statement. If WB is well and truly serious about getting JL on screens in 2015, we'll know who's wrong and who's right.

I can see both sides of the argument... Nolan ended his Batman saga on his terms. On the other hand, the ending of TDKR is ripe for a spinoff franchise. But I agree with Ultimatehero, a LOT of people were excitedly talking about a followup with JGL in the role. (I work at a theater, and more people were excited about JGL taking on the mantle than there are fanboys dreading it in JL.) Just because die-hard fans don't like the possibility, doesn't mean everyone else will too.

Die-hard fans' opinions mean nothing to the suits. They see a potential opening to link Nolan's films to JL, and they're going to exploit that if they can.
