Default Re: Batman/Bruce Wayne Casting Thread - Part 3

Word on the street is that The Batman will be set roughly 15 years before Man of Steel (aka roughly 3 years into Bruce's career as Batman). Take it with a grain of salt if you want, but don't be surprised if Reeves goes for an actor in their late 20's or early 30's.

You know, there are aspects of the DCEU that I've liked, but I have to be perfectly honest here: I feel absolutely no desire to see these movies bend over backwards to fit themselves into a continuity of films that, with few exceptions, haven't been working.

Let Reeves' Batman be Batman. Not Affleck's Batman 15 years ago. Batman.

I don’t disagree.

BUT

I do think it would be kinda nice to see what kind of person and hero he was before the things that turned him paranoid and cruel later in life.
It would make his cruelty in BvS mean more.

If done well, it could be viewd as it’s own thing entirely or as part of a bigger story for anyone that cares to connect it to BvS

It's Batman. That iconic rich secretly emo kid who grew up to be "the dark knight". That's why most of his sidekicks are polar opposites.

To be fair, the DCEU has repeatedly retconned stuff out from the Snyder films that didn't work. Just look at Wonder Woman and how Jenkins tossed out the idea that Diana walked away from mankind for a century.

My guess is Reeves will introduce a bit of a different take on Batman than Affleck's, even if it's supposed to be a younger Pre-BvS Batfleck, and then new DCEU films set in the present will follow the mold Reeves sets up rather than Batfleck.

Not down with that. I want to forget BVS ever happened. I wouldn't care at all if BVS and JL were completely ignored and were essentially not canon.

This.

Let Reeves do his own thing and not be beholden to Snyder's and Affleck's BS.

Agreed. I really don't care about maintaining continuity if Affleck is truly gone. Just have Matt Reeves make his movie with a younger Batman. Bending over backwards will just bog down the movie.

If they decide to do a JL 2 at some point (maybe 4 or 5 years down the line), we may already have had two Batman movies with this hypothetical new/younger actor.

If those movies are smash hits, do we really think anyone will give a **** that it's not Affleck anymore or that continuity doesn't line up properly? I sure as hell won't.

No, the GA wont care, as we've already seen this with Batman. The Schumacher movies are supposed to be the same Batman that Burton made.

But right now, we don't know much about Reeves' Batman to really be too emotionally attached or angry about continuity within the DCEU. We'll just have to wait and see.

Exactly! Right now it's not tangible so the idea of recasting seems off-putting to some. But by the time these characters even cross over again it will be well into the 2020s with possibly multiple movies under the new guy's belt.

I'm with you on this one, i kinda want to forget BvS and JL (i've forgotten about that will smith movie too).

My idea, i have said before is to utilize the two years before BvS after MOS - there are easily 2 movie's worth of events to make a movie.

MOS2 could easily be set a month after MOS and we see Clark's next step, what he does to win the city over - we can have Lex Luthor Jnr's father be the real lex and it's the events of these movies that puts him away and brings out his son.

With an imagination and a clever script it could easily work and would act as a MOS trilogy before BvS.

WW is lucky to be able to do this, with ww1984 and i assume any other sequel has 2 more decades to play with.

Flash has time travel and can stand alone from events, same for AM.

Green lantern corps can have any time period it likes and be out in space.

So with this in mind, you can easily make a phase of good movies whilst not having to deal with trying tog et away from the snyder verse, if indeed that is a thing.

Same for Batman, have it 15 years earlier and you know what, if they want to move foreword with batman and the time lines meet up, just have the flash do something that alters reality and swipes BvS and JL from the time line (but that wouldn't be for another 10 years from now.
