Now I have to say I’m jaded and biased. I have been hot and cold on the DC universe for years and making matters of poor casting/directing/writing worse is Marvel. Let’s be honest here, Iron Man changed the game when it comes to super hero movie quality. Which itself is another problem for Batman – Marvel/Disney realized they could recreate the magic and the money. And they did. Again and again, and again and again….I’m kinda over super hero movies. Unless of course they brought back the best super hero actor of all time.. Yep I’m gonna say it. OF ALL TIME
I mean that Batman was perfect. The script the cast..omg the whole cast.. the music by Danny Elfman. And yes Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne and Batman.
Bruce Wayne is supposed to be this mysterious playboy millionaire and Batman kind of less of a super hero and more of a bad guy to the bad guys. And that’s played perfectly by Keaton. (See the scene where he follows Vicki Vale into the hall of armor and the opening scene where he’s about to drop the thug off a roof..as a kid I was scared of Batman watching that scene! That’s awesome!)
So back the the original point of this blog? Who should replace Ben Who-fleck!? I think you know my vote:
Hear me out. Think of what the possibilities are. A fallible older super hero way past his prime contemplating the next steps in life and who to pass the torch on to. That story is never told! It’d be *gasp* an original thought in Hollywood! And then they could open it up to tell Dick Grayson as Nightwing and Tim Drake as Robin stories. Boom. You’re welcome DC.
