Paul Dano has been cast as The Riddler after Jonah Hill dropped out of negotiations. 

 

 

Colin Farrell is in negotiations to be Penguin and Andy Serkis is in negotiations to be Alfred 

 

It's hard to look forward to something from DC but the cast is shaping up nicely.

And Matthew McConaheyheyhey is apparently being considered for Harvey Dent. I guess DC is just gonna throw money at the cast and hope no one notices a poor story?

Matt Reeves is writing/directing so I have hopes that's not the case but I've been burned by DC before so you may be right.

It’s too much in one movie, especially this new start for the Batman franchise, unless a lot of these are cameos.  

Or maybe I’m wrong and they can successfully make a Batman movie where his world is already fully established and we just dive right into the middle of things

I hope that is the route they take. Like Marvel did with their Spider-Man movies. By now everyone and their mother should know Batman's origin story. We don't need to see the Waynes get shot in a dingy alley again. I hope they don't waste this movie just to rehash that tired story.

You mean to tell me you don't want another 7 minute scene shot in slow mo of two rich white people coming out of some movie theater and for no reason whatsoever walking down the alley with all their finest jewelry with their little kid?

Next you're gonna' say you don't wanna' see the rich little kid in a small dark hole and wake up a bunch of bats to fly around him!

That always bothered me. So they want me to believe that the Wayne's wouldn't have Alfred waiting in a car to pick them up in front of the cinema? Or that they wouldn't at least call a cab? In the most recent retelling of this story they at least came up with a good excuse as to why they went down that ally.

They went down the ally as a shortcut. They felt safe to walk because The Waynes were so disconnected from the average citizen that they didn't realize how dangerous it was for them to be there. 

If they do any kind of origin I just wanna see the "Yes Father, I shall become a bat" scene.

Whoever thought that was a thing probably doesn't know much about multi-millionaires.

It was much more reasonable when it was thought up in 1939

Just give me a film adaption of the Long Halloween goddamnit.

That is the supposed inspiration for the story, not sure it would be a straight up adaptation of it though.

People are still going on about the fucking Snyder cut of Justice League.

There is no way in hell there’s enough unseen footage to make that movie even slightly better, much less as amazing as people seem to think it could be.

Yeah, pretty much. Creatively he's a genius, but his opinions are largely trash.

Why does everyone feel compelled to come out and slate people for liking comic book films lately? Jesus, let people like what they like.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Dirty Old wizard  thinks Super Heroes are for kids and is terribly frightened that other adults don't adhere to his ideas of what is and isn't "Grown Up" and tries to use White Supremacy hand wringing to solidify his opinion as something more meaningful.

I know it wouldn't have been featured heavily anyway, but I really wished that LoT's new season would start. Having to slog through Batwoman and the Flash every week just so I'm not completely blur when the crossover happens is murdering my brain. At least there's Supergirl as a bit of a soothing balm.

I'm actually really enjoying Batwoman.  Mostly because I've headcanoned Ruby Rose's rather wooden acting to her character having been rather emotionally detached for years.  But I do think she's been getting better as the show has gone on and a lot of the other characters like Alice, Mary, and Luke are really interesting

-Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam movie will introduce the JSA: https://www.cbr.com/black-adam-movie-justice-society-america-dwayne-johnson/

-Just watched the latest episode of Titans and I still don't know what to make of this show. Most episodes are "meh" but then you get a fairly good one, like this week's.
