I get the impression that DC has no clue what they're doing in their movies. I suspect the execs spent a weekend watching all the Marvel flicks, then said, "Do that!" Only with no sense of direction.
Yeah it sounds like that considering we well see Justice League as a movie before we see most the members get their own movie. I think Wonder Woman is the only besides Superman who will. Not that it's a bad thing, it just opens up to issues if say Aquaman's movie bombs, if Shazam (the original Captain Marvel and not to be confused with the one who will debut in the MCU soon), and even Suicide Squad. IMO out of all the comic movies for next year, I'll likely not see Suicide Squad in theaters. It sounds interesting but I think it is happening a little too early in the universe.

I am going to see it in theater. The only Batman movie I haven't seen in theaters since I started with Batman Forever was Begins so I'll see this.

Excited to see the new Batman, but feel they wasted this on Ben Affleck. Superman vs Batman seems a little weird, but might be entertaining enough.

Daredevil is a deep & dark as well just like Batman again we'll have to see what happens.
I don't know how much of that was directly related to Ben Affleck. The entire movie seemed to ignore the spirit of the comics. Much like the first wolverine movie; which took elements of the origin story, then mashed it all into some convoluted tale. Lol, I'm probably the only one I know who can watch that movie; but only because I've always liked Wolverine.

I concur. The biggest sequence of speech in the movie just struck me as odd:

Batman - "Do you bleed?" (or something to that effect)
Batman - "Because you will"

I know I'm being too literal, but it seems presumptuous to say that your opponent will when you're not even certain he does.

I guess it doesn't matter, I'll probably watch this in the theaters. Just not the first weekend or two. I'm not that crazy.

Batman in this seems even darker in his character then normal, And Supes appears to be a feared and distrusted outsider. I was curious about the armored mask. Batman could not beat Superman in a standard confrontation obviously. There was a part after that Batman threat that we did not see where the two were charging at each other. Maybe kryptonite armor? Batman is certainly cunning and smart enough to create something like this.

I think Affleck now works for the type of Batman they are looking for with this movie. It may not be the campy sixties Batman, Shumacker's Baan or Nolan's Dark Knight. This is similar to the spirit of the Burton Batman Returns and Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns where Batman is dark and angry (but about his parents.)

Even if it is bad, it will make money. Maybe not Avengers money but much more than Green Lantern. You get the Man of Steel fans as well as Batman fans and those who always wanted to see that fight on film.

The problem with Origins Wolverine and an extent The Wolverine was that they changed a lot from the source material in ways that didn't help the film. Deadpool was turned into a silent catchall rather than the mouthy mercenary he was to start off the film.

It is far too early to know if this will suffer that same problem.

Yeah, that line out of context is a little hard to understand. When we see the scene with that line, we well know if it works or not.
IMO, it is that and the Alfred line about madness driving him that made the trailer. And as a Supes-hater now, the False Good graffiti was good too.

Yeah I may do it on a Tuesday or something.

As I said, lots of Dark Knight Returns in here.

The Wolverine wasnt that bad though. The only bad Batman movie was Batman abd Robin, mainly because they casted a great Bruce Wayne but never utilized him as Bruce.

For Two hours I watched a 150 year old immortal more or less who is a EXPERT hand to hand fighter Get his arse kicked. Every movie they have done doesn't show how intelligent or how good of a fighter he is. I'm tried of that to be honest. I think they should of started with Origin & when from there did it right for a change. So much history & stories to be told about Logan.
