Now Tarantino ****s on Batman! Its **** on Batman season in Hollywood right now.

Here is what he had to say about the shocking casting of Affleck as Batman.
I have to admit that I don't really have an opinion. Why? Because Batman is not a very interesting character. For any actor. There is simply not much to play. I think Michael Keaton did it the best, and I wish good luck to Ben Affleck. But, you know who would have made a great Batman? Alec Baldwin in the '80s.

I share his opinion.
Keaton >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bale

Yeah Keaton is my favorite Batman, Bale's the best Bruce.

And Alec Baldwin would've been perfect

I remember reading somewhere that Tarantino wrote a 20 page review gushing over how much he loved Superman Returns.

He also loved The Lone Ranger.

He might make great movies, but his taste in (at least some) movies sucks.

That dream would have out of place music, questionable character acting and ninjas. Sounds like a nightmare to me, heh.

I actually do like most of his work, he's just known to push the envelope a little too far at times, which I think would hurt the character.

He thinks Batman is not an interesting character? That's because his never been done right on the big screen and I am guessing the big screen Batman is the only one Tarantino is familiar with.

Tarantino has said he'd never do a superhero comic because the fans obsess over casting or the color red in Superman's cape.

Why Is it cool to diss Batman now? Nolan's done with the character and now it's cool to diss him again? For a character who supposedly doesn't have much to play with I think Bale did a lot, heck so did Keaton. Feels like some need to insult the character to defend Affleck. That's not necessary, and doesn't help their point either.

Batman has become way too popular in the past few decades, and you know what we do to popular ****.

I actually think so, too.

One of my worst nightmares about MOS2 is watching the Batman scenes and seeing my DREAM version up on the screen,and then watching the surrounding movie be awkwardly written and edited. The character, will of course get the flack, and then everyone would moan about wanting Bale back.

And I will be silently weeping, knowing what could have been if Nolan cared as much about bringing Batman from the pages as he did making a good film.

Bale and Keaton were both my favorites. I think Ben will do fine in the role.

Because if there's one thing Quentin Tarantino is about, it's doing whatever everyone else thinks is cool right now.

Well, bummer, Tarantino doesn't think Batman's an interesting character. Oh well. I think he's pretty fascinating myself, unless handled poorly. Keaton found enough there, Bale found enough there, hopefully Affleck finds enough there. I've never understood the sentiment - and this isn't a response to QT, because he didn't express this - of "Batman's the same no matter who plays him, it's all about the suit" - I've always found that way too shallow and dismissive, and obviously not the case going by what we've seen onscreen. Why was Tarantino asked about Ben Affleck's casting as Batman, anyway? Is this just another issue - like the Breaking Bad finale - where everyone needs to weigh in? Also, Alec Baldwin would have made a good Batman, but not in Burton's movies.

Basically it's our fault for making such a big ass deal about Affleck's casting. Media outlets that couldn't give two ****s about it suddenly were making it top story.

He understands Clark Kent fine. People fail to realize that it was the villain giving the Superman speech in Kill Bill. You don't assume Quentin believes in slavery because Calvin Candie did.

Tarintino would make an EPIC Punisher flick, though
