Tarantino has a point about Baldwin in the 80s being great for the role, but he clearly doesn't know anything about Batman if he's calling him boring.

Plus he loved Superman Returns. Loved it! End of.

Eh... I don't put much stock into Tarintino's opinions. Never did.

He is a great filmmaker, but still highly overrated. He just straight rips off grindhouse and exploitation cinema and people call that creative or even his own style.

Also, no matter how good you are at something... that doesn't give you the right to act as one of the biggest douchebags in the industry. Quentin is so full of himself, its disgusting. Not only on this Batman thing, but on almot everything he talks about. Name one other director on his level who has the audacity to name his top 10 favorite movies of the year, every year. Noone does that, but Quentin, because he sees himself above everyone else.

He might make great movies, but his taste in (at least some) movies sucks.
I think he just thrives on being argumentative. I don't think he would have championed those films had they been more commercially accepted and successful.

But that's the thing. It's his opinion. You don't have to start hating Batman and liking the Lone Ranger movie because he does.

Or he's not just a cynical douche? You can love a movie while not thinking it's the pinnacle of filmmaking.

I'm not really the biggest Tarantino fan, but I respect his genuine appreciation for films without being a snob about what kinds of films he likes. Film is entertainment and art combined and there are films on both extremes to be enjoyed for various reasons. And that's all completely subjective.

If we can agree one can be a batfan solely from the movies, then it's not impossible that same individual hasn't been a fan of any of the Batman characterizations.

The character has far exceeded the comic book medium. Especially with this generation, I'd argue our most prevalent Batman works existed not in the books, but in film and tv.

While I disagree with Tarantino (and Damon for that matter), I also carry with me the knowledge of far more than he's probably aware of. If I was to judge solely the films, I wouldn't be singing praises for Batman either. I'm still waiting to be impressed.

Zimmer on Affleck.
He’ll be a really good Batman. It’s really quite simple, the man isn’t a fool and he’s not gonna set himself up for a fall. He’s a great filmmaker in his own right, he really is, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing.

Such comments irritate me to no hell. Just like the rest of celebrity endorsements, the comment is again about how Batman is alright for Affleck. NOT if Affleck is alright for Batman.

Again, people in Hollywood don't give a flying **** about Batman like the fanboys do (though they do enjoy the money it brings). They mostly care about Affleck. And they are defending his casting from the opposite direction. That Batman would not harm Affleck's career.

But the fanboys don't care about that. The fanboys want to know if Affleck will spoil the character of Batman.

And now the Affleck fanboys come out in three... two... one...

Yeah, you know this tactic of yours calling anyone who disagrees with you a fanboy to belittle their opinion is getting extremely old. All it shows is that you have nothing to back your opinion up and are resorting to name calling. That's just lame.

The reason film makers don't care as much as us is because they are in the business of caring about film. We are in the business of obsessing about a small subgenre of media known as "superheroes". In the same way Superman was right for Henry Cavill, he'd been trying to attach himself to a franchise for years, then Superman was getting a new series and he succeeded.

I feel like I need to say to all the people who say "Tarantino makes great movies, but his taste is terrible" that if he didn't have the taste he has, he wouldn't have made the movies he's made. He celebrates and finds value in the most unexpected movies, and good on him for that. I don't always agree with the guy, but I like him based on his public persona, and, more importantly, he's a brilliant filmmaker.

Please. Tarantino is not above ripping a movie apart because he thinks it's garbage (I'd post a link to what he said about The Matrix Reloaded, but it's a bit too profane). He may not be a "douche" like you're implying I am, but he's every bit as cynical as you or me. I'm sure that he would think a person who likes the Matrix sequels has bad taste, just as I feel that his taste is at least questionable given some of the movies he likes.

Well, personally I think Affleck will do OK as Bats. I hope I'm surprised and he knocks it out of the park. I don't think he will derail the film any more than the possibility of bad writing/editing/characterization.

Enough with your hostility in decrying this casting decision to anyone who may think otherwise.

The hatred toward Tarantino because of his comment is unreal and embarrassing.

Not everyone has to like Batman. People need to accept that it's called an 'opinion' and move on.

He's certainly not the only one to think Batman's an uninteresting character, either.
