Now if you would have said Cavill might own the role of Clark Kent even more than Bale owns Bruce Wayne, then I'd find that hard to believe.
Ok Cavill will play a better Clark Kent than Bale's Bruce Wayne

Whoa

Cavill Clark Kent Kal-el

Bale Bruce Batman

Meaning classic? It will be no doubt. They saw what happened with SR even tweaking the classic, and people had a fit. I expect modern textures, less seams this time and classic.

My opinion of Bale's performance in the Batman movies is...controversial to say the least so I'll refran from talking about it because I'm having such a good chat with you fellows.

I was one of the few who didn't mind the costume in SR. Costumes aren't a make or break thing for me, if they were I'd have hated Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and X-Men 1 and 2.

Agreed Elite.

Bale did nail Batman's presence and mannerisms though, I think. Especially with the eye glaring and teeth grinding. So I liked that but his voice has been inconsistent and that's thrown his performance as Bat's a bit off.

As Wayne though he's arguably the closest to the comics. Incredibly close to a point that its chilling.

I would agree, and Bale is my favorite Batman.

I've always liked Bale, pre Batman. I also think he did a good job as Batman. I'm sure Nolan keeping things grounded in reality may have changed a bit of the interpretation though. They won't ground Superman as far into reality because he is an actual "SUPER" hero though.

I think that Bale deserved his naked gold man. He's a really fine actor and I like him but I'm just not into his performance in the Batman films or any of his action films to be honest. Again, controversial opinion but it's mine. *shrugs*

I'm not saying that he is bad in the Batman movies, I'm just saying that he is far from great in them IMHO.

i honestly think Cavill has the potential to far exceed even Christopher Reeve. Christopher Reeve was establishing Superman on the big screen for the first time when the big blue wasn't taken as seriously. now they have a chance to really flesh out Kal-El/Clark/Supes and add depth to them and an actor who seems to have the gravitas to portray all the facets of this character. these are exciting times to be a Superman fan.

I still have to say that my favorite Batman costume is Batman 89 and Returns just for the way they looked. I still like to see Batman as a dark, gothic character. It should be a balance between that and reality. I really miss the gargoyles in Gotham.

I think Bale was a damn good Batman but his voice is a bit too much, indeed. It never bothered me, really, but I know how it can bother some people. But, script wise, Bale had a much better material to work than the previous actors. I actually thought Keaton and Kilmer were great too. Batman isnt that much of a hard character to play, imo.

Hopefully they wont kill Batman in DKR. I know i`m going to hate it if it happens.

Reeve played the character before all the modern concepts were conceived that we love today. Pre Byrnes, Pre TAS

It makes the job a little easier imo for Cavill to exceed him. Reeve was really limited by the source material available at the time, so was Donner for that matter.

There are things I dislike about Bale's Batman but that has to with Nolan's take on Bats more than Bale.

this was kinda random (i think) hehe...

...my biggest gripe about the suit was his neckline. if they'd just fix that it would've been alright. the red was also too dark. other than those 2 major things it was fine to me.

It looked like a Superman costume to me. I mean the material used for the cape looked a little too much like Fruit Roll Ups but thats about the only problem I had with it.

Superman's costume looks silly to me anyway so it was just another silly Superman costume to me.

The problem with that costume is the same of the whole movie. A HUGE MISSED OPPORTUNITY.

Some simple changes like opening the collar, no s in the belt, brighter colors, better material for the cape would IMPROVE IT A LOT,imo.

Hopefully Snyder is going to fix those problems and give us the definitive version of the classic costume on screen.

It didn't completely feel like a Superman costume for me. I think the colors were a bit off. Cape was weird. The 3d \S/ I'm back and forth on, I know the size was made for Routh's specification but I honestly think a big 3d \S/ in general from that type of plastic look is kind of hard to look good larger. The \S/ on the buckle seemed a bit much but forgivable. The seems were annoying to me.

Kilmers voice was the best out of all the Batmans, everything else about his performance though as either Wayne or Batman sucked balls. IMO

As for Cavill he will nail the role. Something just tells me he will.

Bale was good but the way his mouth moves or doesn't move irritates the Hell out of me! It really distracts me. He talks like his tongue is too big or numb??? That top lip... I just want to rip it off! ugh... He didn't have that issue in the Fighter though and I loved him in it. Thank Goodness Cavill doesn't have anything about him (speech or mannerism) that irritates. Thank Goodness!

I actually thought Christian was a better Batman than he was Bruce Wayne. His Bruce is obviously a front to throw people off the trail, but I don't necessarily by into the "Batman is the real person" motto.
