green arrow kind of the gets the short of the stick because not only does he have to contend with being batman with a bow, now he has to contend with being not-hawkguy
The only way Green Arrow would be Batman with a bow is if he were to become a genius over night and was equipped with all kinds of gadgets. And Green Arrow came before Hawkeye, no? But yeah besides Batman and Superman, DC characters are lagging behind Marvel characters in the theaters.
I often wonder if the film ever even had a snowball’s chance of being good. Not because “Books are always better” but because Watchmen is in its medium. You’re just copying it. There is no twist, no way to “cover it.” The Watchmen is not a movie, but a “stilly” using all cinematic styles and leaving the in between movement to the brain. To change that is to undermine the work. I stand firmly with Alan Moore. His works are adapted in a haphazard fashion and always fail to even see the bar let alone match it.
Furthermore this may be my issue with comic adaptations in general. So few understand the source material and the source MEDIUM. Don’t adapt a comic book unless you know comics in an intimate way.
Starman, Deadpool, The Sentry, and Moonknight just to name a few.
Their illnesses add so much depth. If written correctly, the writer will allow you to enter the minds of these unique individuals and understand them in a way that their peers never will.
Sometimes Bruce gets a little upset and emo…
I get so mad sometimes,
I’m forever alone.
The Justice League is on my dick,
But I won’t pick up the phone.
I get all the ladies when I play pretend,
But they don’t like me,
they just want my money to spend.
It’s not even like I’d be able to get into it when when I poke her,
She’d be screaming “Bruce Wayne!”
But I’d just be thinking about Joker,
And how to defeat him,
And how I’m the one for this city.
But today I feel shitty.
I don’t get enough sleep,
I don’t have time to eat,
I miss my parents,
And no one’s there to hug me when I weep.
Alfred is my only friend and he thinks I’m a loser, chronic masturbator ‘cus I’m always on the computer.
But I’m not a loser,
I know Catwoman wants the dick,
And I know I can do her,
But I’m not that slick…
So yeah maybe I do slap my chicken in front of the computer,
And release my emotions into the end of a sock.
Man, I suck.
I should just hang up the suit,
I don’t have super strength,
I don’t have lasers to shoot.
I can’t teleport or fly,
I’m not a superhero…
I’m just a lonely guy.
What do you guys think about him being casted?
How do you think the movie is gonna play out?
So, although the whole Ben Affleck/Batman thing has calmed down a bit, people who know me as a comic nerd still come up to me and sing the same song: “So what do you think about Ben Affleck being casted as the new Batman?” They ask it with a grin, waiting to bash him with me. But I always surprise them by saying “I think he’ll do fine.”
Honestly, and this will be an unpopular opinion, I thought Daredevil was pretty enjoyable. I wish Colin Farrell captured Bullseye’s insanity in a less over-the-top manner and that Elektra was just a minor character. I loved Michael Clarke Duncan’s Kingpin. He has such a presence to him. I would have liked it if his character’s intelligence was displayed a bit more.
I could go on and on, but this post isn’t about Daredevil. The only reason I mentioned it is because it’s the go-to movie to insult.
"Ben Affleck ruined Daredevil." etc. etc.
He wasn’t great, but there were a fuck lot more things wrong with that movie than the casting. The writing was lazy, the romance felt corny to me, and there were a few scenes where I just wanted to punch Affleck in the face. That being said, it was enjoyable and there were some very Batman-esk scenes. My favorite was when Ben/Matt Murdock is showering and his many scars are revealed, showing that he was very much just a man in a suit. Sound familiar?
Anyways, I’m done with DD.
Lemme ask you…what do you think the difficulty level is for acting as the Batman? Seriously?
Considering the fact that Batman wears a costume and lurks in the shadows, not much is expected acting-wise. He needs a powerful voice, great eye and mouth gestures, and a great presence. That’s it. Ben Affleck is very much capable of doing this. He just needs to bulk up and work on his voice (anything other than Christian Bale’s best imitation of the Godfather would do). It is a lot more difficult to play the part of Bruce Wayne. He’s a billionaire, playboy. He needs to be likable. So yeah that’s about it.
Ben Affleck can do all these things. Would he have been my first pick for Batman? Hell no lol. But everyone who matters thinks he would be great, and they’re the ones telling the story. So I trust that they know what they are doing. I remember the last time people got butthurt over casting a very unlikely actor to play one of our favorite comic book villains…
We also seem to forget that this isn’t a Batman movie. Henry Cavill is still the title character. His performance as Superman was fine, but it didn’t blow anyone out of the water. Yet people will bitch if Affleck’s performance as Batman is anything less than amazing. It’s not like Christian Bale set the bar that high. His fighting moves were clumsy looking, his voice was lol, but he still played the part great. I think Affleck will do well with what he is given. It’s all about the writing. Let’s just hope it’s a good story.
An anon kindly asked me to give some info on a few of DC’s greatest assassins because of the 8 assassins that will be one of the focuses of the upcoming Batman game, Arkham Origins.
Deathstroke has already been confirmed as one of the assassins hired by the Black Mask to eliminate Bats.
Here are some of the possibilities (keep in mind that Arkham Origins will be a prequel to the other two games so anything goes):
So Lady Shiva is a martial arts grandmaster who specializes in taking down opponents with her bare hands. Her origins revolve around her and her mission to track down and kill her sister’s murderer. She eventually becomes a master assassin.
Merlyn is Green Arrow’s arch-nemesis. He has all the skills that his green counterpart does, only he’s EVILLLLLL. Merlyn’s second encounter with the Green Lantern was actually during Merlyn’s attempt to assassinate Batman. So it’d make a lot of sense if he was trying to kill the Bats in the upcoming game.
He’s a highly trained assassin who helped train a young Bruce Wayne in different forms of combat. He wanted to create the perfect assassin by training children and stuff. He failed miserably so he decided to raise and train his own child. So he banged Lady Shiva and made Cassandra Cain aka Batgirl aka Black Bat.
The Mad Dog:
One of David Cain’s earlier failures, the Mad Dog was basically just thrown away into the wild. He still retained the combat training he grew up with and is a very capable assassin.
An expert marksman. He’s usually a hired assassin and brags about never missing.
The Red Hood:
This was the Joker’s alias before he fell into the vat of chemicals and became the Joker. He was a minor crime boss kinda guy but it’d be cool if he was one of the assassins. It could somehow lead into the other games once Batman corners him and accidentally leads him to fall into the chemicals.
Vandal Savage is an immortal man whose origins date back to 50,000 B.C. He’s an expert martial artist and genius and a dick.
He is a frustrated athlete who turns to crime…so he uses his sporty skills to uhh his advantage…
Black Spider can be implemented in the video game with a twist. He is a double agent who pretends to help out Black Mask by fucking up a ball in Wayne’s Manor. His real goal is to kill Black Mask, but is stopped by the Batman. This incident cuts up Black Spider’s face which ends up looking like a web, so that’s the origin of his name. He becomes a baddy and hates Batman. So like, he can be one of the first assassins and then once his plan fails to kill Black Mask, he can return to kill the Batman at another point of the game. Idk, just an idea.
I’m done, I’m fucking tired.
Hope at least one of these are used Anon.
