When the Marvel crowd starts saying that a Batman movie is too dark and serious it just makes me laugh. They give themselves a bad reputation. It's still an action movie about a superhero...there's a limit with how serious you can get with a Batman movie. They must not get out much . Or maybe the correct term is, they must only watch popcorny fluff and comedies if they think TDK trilogy (or MOS for that matter) is "too serious".

But MOS is still a popcorn movie. The only serious/emotional scenes I can think of off the top of my head are the Kal-El send off within the first 20 minutes. The scenes in Smallville with Clark's parents...and well...Superman's reaction to Zod's death. I cant really think of anything else right now. It's a 3D/CG sci-fi extravaganza lol. Ben's Batman will have its serious moments and it'll be dark but it's still going to have a popcorn vibe.

MOS had WAY more in common with somebody like JJ Abrams than Nolan's movies.

I think Regwec was the one who said it, but he said MOS is a popcorn movie salted lol.

Hehe yeah, a popcorn movie with a little something extra. Id say there's more emotion than Avengers or what you're gonna get when you see a Fast & The Furious/Transformers/GI Joe, etc. Obviously. But it's still a 3D action flick about a superhero that has superpowers with an alien invasion at the center of the story. With plenty of video gamey fight scenes. I mean...calling MOS too serious is just funny stuff.

That's the kind of balance we need to expect with this new Batman. Take it seriously when it's time for it, if the main character loses a loved one or they show some internal struggle but it's minimal. It's still fun science-fiction. I totally see Affleck as a Arkham City Bats. It just fits the MOS universe so well.

A team-up should be fun. I don't want the movie treating Batman like a COMPLETE jerk and Superman as his downer friend :P

Id rather they don't like each other much until the very end. Id rather it be a versus movie than a team-up. If they DO team-up, I want it to be in the last 20 minutes only.

I like the humor of the Marvel films, but I also like the seriousness of the Batman films. I like how superhero movies can accommodate a diversity of tone. I don't think EVERY superhero movie has to poke fun at itself and if it tries to be dramatic and somber it's somehow getting ideas above its station. It's a strangely self-hating philosophy where you're not comfortable watching a superhero movie unless the characters are saying "Hey, this is all a bit silly really, don't take it too seriously."

Affleck has an ease and a charisma to him that I love. That's quite possibly going to make for a great public Bruce Wayne persona in contrast with a grimmer Batman.

Would you guys want to see more Bruce Wayne or more Batman?

I'd want to see more Bruce Wayne, but I expect more Batman.

I'd rather we have more Batman this time and just have sparse moments of Bruce. Nolan's thing focused a lot more on Bruce, and if this one is more stylized per the comics, I'd like to see him in the Bat-garb for most of the time.

^ Exactly. I think humor allows audiences to distance themselves enough from the narrative that they don't feel overwhelmed by the drama. I think humor adds a darkness, ironically, to the drama. If the last scene is shown to be funny, and then something bad happens it equals mood whiplash on an epic scale.

I think it can have the opposite effect, actually. Humor can bring people closer to the narrative. Laughing at a joke instantly creates an emotional common ground. Jokes in a dramatic film help the audience care about the characters and the stakes of the film. Plus, when something is depressing and dramatic all the time it can have a numbing effect on the audience, in part because it's overwhelming but also because it stops to feel real of relatable. Humor brings it back to reality in a way, and reminds the audience that there is something worthwhile that will be lost if and/or when everything goes to ****.
