    Re: The Dark Knight Rises

    For some reason people still haven't forgiven Afflack for his 2001-2004 stretch, when his run both acting and directing since then has been very solid almost without exception. I think he can pull it off.

    Re: The Dark Knight Rises

    Word is that Bryan Cranston (of "Breaking Bad" fame) has been cast as Lex Luthor to a multi-picture deal, and the idea for DC will be all their major superheroes and villains appearing in each other's movies (v. the Marvel idea of "1 hero, 1 movie" in the non-Avengers films).

    I really wish someone other than Zach Snyder was in charge of the DC stuff.

    Outside of Affleck being Batman, I'm not big on the idea of a Superman vs. Batman movie mostly because it's another bullet point in making I Am Legend into a true story.

    Good point. By definition, he was the greatest American hero.

    Case closed.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: The Dark Knight Rises

    Here's a differing opinion on Affleck.

    From the awards-snaffling Argo to Hollywoodland, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, he's had an increasingly bulletproof CV of late, and it's hard to argue that he hasn't since gained the maturity and world-weary experience to take on a role that looks to be positioning itself as the mirror image to Superman's younger energy

    Re: The Dark Knight Rises

    This may be common knowledge and I'm just behind.

    Are there going to be any tie ins to Nolan's Dark Knight or is this all just gonna be whatever Snider decides? I assume that would mean that JGL as Robin is also out?

    You can neg me if you feel I should know this or been able to relatively easily find this information on my own.

    It's a different universe from Nolan's.

    Supposedly it will draw inspiration from the Frank Miller "Dark Knight Strikes Back" graphic novels (old grizzled Batman VS. Superman).

    Josh Brolin as older Batman would have ruled it.

    If only because an older Batman would force them to play up the (severely underutilized in movies) "Worlds Greatest Detective" aspect of the character.
