    Just about every time I see one of those polls with thousands of votes, Bale is in the clear lead. Reaffirms my faith in Batman fandom. Its nice to see West can pull in considerable numbers of votes, too.

    Forgot to post this on BATMAN Day

    A worthy tribute to the Icon for 80 years!

    Hey guys. After a needed break from this forum (was burnt out on the genre, close friend also passed away), the latest Batman casting got me back in the mood. How is everyone? I guess I should be participating in the Joker threads, and the Reeves section. I definitely will. But if the old crew (Batlobster etc) want to talk about some of the recent news in this thread, I’m more than willing!

    Arnold Schwarzenegger did a 'Star Breaks Mos Iconic Roles' video and included Batman & Robin, he loved working on it, and I add this as yet another reason to admire that man.
    Long time no see. And my condolences.

    My condolences for your loss Shauner.

    I only saw Joker once and enjoyed it, but I think it's got some major script issues. I didn't fully buy Arthur's transition to the Joker. I mean, I bought how he got from point A to point B, but then the film uses "craziness" as an excuse to get him from point B to point C (particularly after he's off the meds). That's just lazy writing. You can write a "crazy" character whose motivations and actions still 'make sense' to the audience.

    I also think it can't decide if Arthur is supposed to be an everyman, or a metaphor for how we treat mental health. He doesn't really work as an everyman because he's got some pretty serious issues. Not anyone would snap and become the Joker under his circumstances, something the movie kinda acknowledges at the same time as playing up the "everyman" aspect.

    The mother being there didn't make sense either. If she was seriously that abusive, and it was all on file, no way they'd still let her maintain custody.

    The mother thing aside, I think the first two problems I mentioned were always gonna be there no matter what. I don't think you can make a Joker origin film that makes sense. It's one of those things that's left better for interpretation. I felt that way both before and after seeing the film.

    As a sidenote...anyone else felt the Batman origin was super awkward in this o_O? It wasn't some random mugging this time, it was a politically-motivated murder by someone from a working-class movement. So I guess this Batman will grow up to be a Fascist. Like, not just in the Frank Miller sense. I mean a genuine card-carrying Fascist. :dry:

    I still think that Bale would have chosen to leave with Nolan if given the choice and that Nolan wanted this version of Bruce Wayne to have a definitive ending. Bale pretty much stated this in another recent interview he did:
    Former Batman Christian Bale REVEALS why there wasn't a fourth installment in The Dark Knight trilogy

    But I'm a little shocked to learn that he didn't really had a choice in leaving Batman after he fulfilled his contract and that he was possibly still open to continuing his role as Batman. I guess WB simply wanted a new interpretation of Batman and that they wanted to keep Nolan happy by not doing another Batman movie with the same cast without Nolan's involvement.

    Joker hates it. Not sure about everyone else.

    I think it's a little weird and clunky-looking, and I'm distracted by the darts (?) on his arms, but I need better pics than just a stunt double doing rehearsals.

    My brother asked if he's supposed to hunt vampires here.

    I wish I could say I liked it. So far, not feeling it.

    I have total confidence in the film being great, but not hot on the suit yet. Hoping I will come around after I see it on Battinson.

    I was hoping the ears would sell me on it, but they look worse than what I imagined. I knew we weren't getting Kane-ears as so many predicted, but I'm just not feeling the cowl. Which is funny, cause that's the only part I liked in the reveal, but those ears totally ruined it for me. And is the suit a brownish-rust color?

    But those Black Widow gauntlets stick out like a soar thumb. :dry:

    Honestly...meh. I dunno. I just don't care for that kind of Batsuit design in general.

    What baffles me is how people can dislike TDK suit, but think this suit is so much better. It's from the same school of mediocrity to me.
