    If Goyer thinks the audience will care about Batman only because he's Batman, then well... we're ******.

    just a thought :oldrazz:

    He can attempt to write another version of Batman but we have already got his interpretation of who Batman is and his capabilities. We have had Goyers take on Batman.

    Why are people still worrying about this...? He did co-write with Nolan y'know. The same Goyer that said this:

    I'm not saying he'll write the exact same Batman for Affleck. But give the guy some credit. He knows what he's doing.

    Right off the bat, a different director will change the way his fighting prowess is perceived on screen.
    Secondly him matching up against superman will mean his brains will have to be presented differently.

    This absolutely cannot be the same batman that threw some fire crackers at Tom Hardy and growled. No chance.

    Paul Dini wrote the screenplay to Maleficent.

    I'm just saying. Dini did write Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Mask of the Phantom, Batman: Mad Love, Batman: War on Crime, Batman: Heart of Hush, Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth, and Superman: Peace on Earth.

    Better than having the screenwriter to Blade 3.

    So the best way to argue your point is to choose a few great works from Paul Dini and juxtapose that to one bad project from Goyer (while ignoring the works that he has been good in)? How is that even a fair comparison?

    Also, the DCAU heavily favoured Batman while disregarding discrepancies. For instance, who in their right mind would think that Batman is able to lift Superman and throw him across a bar? That made no sense at all. I get that Paul Dini is a good writer, but let's not ignore the flawed subtleties in his story.

    Right and his take was a young inexperienced Batman, he has also wrote other works that include batman as a advance crime fighter in the comics, they man is gifted writer and can probably cook up a different version of Batman for film he has already done so in print.

    That's one way to frame a comparison, there are others.

    Rewatched Man of Steel last night. So the guy in the bar couldn't push Clark but the fat guy on the boat could tackle Clark when he goes to pick something up?

    Still if you don't think Dini could write a good Superman, read Peace On Earth. Dini writing mixed with Alex Ross art.

    I think Clark let the guy tackle him. That, or he just wasn't paying attention. Clark doesn't weigh more than the average man and could theoretically be tossed around like one if caught off guard.

    Clark being caught of guard and tossed around hinges on his reaction time. If he is pushed by and average person, it's very likely because he at some point in the millionth second of reaction time he has decided to let it happen.

    This explains MOS.

    As for that dini fiasco, I personally chalk that up to:
    -Superman being taken aback at the boldness of it all(look at his face).
    -In comic books luthor puts on a stupid suit and he can all of a sudden hang...the norm.

    Oh yea I'm sure that will work. Let's see you go 10 rounds against Doomsday with it to see if it works.

    I didn't see you rescuing innocent civilians and trying to minimize the damage you were causing to the urban environment.
