    I would agree with you if there was a different actor in the role of Harley atm. I personally find Harley, especially with Margot in the role, very funny, cute, and entertaining all around. She’s a pest and that makes me laugh, not cringe. But I get it. Janice was straight up annoying, with nothing else to her character so I don’t get that comparison. Her voice and laugh were nails on a chalkboard. Margot’s Harley voice is perfection.

    I cannot stand the costume they're using for the new Batman movie they're trying to create. It's terrible.

    Otherwise as comic books go, it is really hard to say. I like the supposedly lesser tier characters, and prefer things like Teen Titans to Justice League as an example. I feel like the normal main publications of the popular big name heroes are not always as engaging or as interesting and are too predictable often times.

    Well, it's practically the Dark Knight Returns.

    So the new Batman costume being bad - is it a popular or unpopular opinion?

    Here's a hot take: Batman sucks. An insanely privileged trust fund lad whose solution to tackling crime and inequality is to wage an urban war bought by his immense wealth rather than using that wealth to invest in the poorer communities.

    Daredevil makes vast more sense because:

    1. He is poor. Being a neighborhood vigilante is the only way he can contribute to society. Not to mention he is a fricking attorney at law on his free time. Doing invaluable work for the poor. Unlike Wayne, who elects to be a wasteful Playboy.

    2. His enhanced senses make it impossible for him to tune out street level crime.

    Batman is only made interesting by the pulpy gimickery of his city and rogues gallery.

    This is exactly what makes Batman interesting IMO and makes Daredevil the same as any other vigilante.

    I definitely agree! Like with Deadpool, I only like her in small doses in general but find them very overrated and so them having such big roles on films sucks for me.

    Harley not just being in the first Birds of Prey film but the main focus and star is very annoying. Margot Robbie is great in the role but it's not for my liking

    Here's another thing to put on my unpopular opinions list: I love Batman: The Animated Series, but I really am not a fan of Batman Beyond. I get the concept, but man I would have rather seen a Nightwing spinoff show.

    -Batman Beyond is the third best batman animated show behind The Animated Series and The New Adventures of Batman.

    -The Batman Beyond suit is the best batsuit of in general.

    -Val Kilmer is the best live action Bruce Wayne and third best batman after Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck.

    -The Batman's batmobile is the 2nd best live action batmobile after Tim Burton's.

    -Jack Nicholson is the best live action Joker.

    -Batman Arkham Asylum is the best batman game in terms on story while Arkham Knight has the best gameplay and graphics.

    -Christian Bale's bat voice was good in Batman Begins.

    -Batman Begin's suit is much better than TDK/TDKR's

    -Bane's characterization in Batman & Robin was terrible but he looked cool and was comic accurate

    I still don't like the Elliot Goldenthal theme.
    I'm very happy we got the show we got.

    I like Batman Beyond but I can't deny that a Nightwing spin-off would have been really interesting.

    There has yet to be a clearly well choreographed Batman fight scene that incorporates all of the awesome gymnastics, agility and profound speed at which Batman moves in the comics. BvS was great but still hollywood hasn’t made that definitive awesome Batman fight scene. I feel like they did justice to fighting abilities of captain america in the comics in the winter soldier film.

    I’m not. And I essentially did. It was just hilarious.

    I always thought that most of the fight scenes in the Nolan movies were fine and I guess I'm in the minority since most dislike most of the action/fight sequences in the TDK trilogy.

    I hate the fight scenes in Batman Begins because of the close up camera but am fine with most of the action and fight scenes in TDK and TDKR

    Agreed. There are some bad ones but the club fight in TDK is good and so is the sewer fight with Bane.

    It doesn't get mentioned a lot, but I really like the club fight.

    The elbow shots work. Everything is quick and effective. And the lighting helps. Other times, when he uses that elbow technique or a big forearm across the back, it comes off really slow. What bugs me the most about TDK fight scenes, are those big slow forearms that he uses over and over again. Almost every fight has a moment like that and it looks like the criminal is waiting there for 3 seconds for Batman to wind up and land it.

    Yes, those clubbing forearms/elbows and the headbutts seem to be his signature moves :funny:
