THE BATMAN TRAILER.
That is all.
Another Batman movie?
Gotham Knights perchance? I too am cautiously optimistic... even though the game play and cinematic trailer put me off.
EDIT: Quick google tells me otherwise. Wow.
No. If it glitters is NOT BATMAN!
Why do I feel we'd be the only three people there.
Grey, is that a Pattinson dig??
I am a firm believer that the only bad batman is a no batman at all.
*slowly looks to Affleck batman*
Get the RIGHT BAT for the JOB!
Terrible Bat. Terrible Flash. Terrible Luthor.
Cyborg? What Cyberog? There was a Cyborg?
Wonder Woman: Check.
It's a mess out there kids, stop drinking the cool-aid! LOL!!
Batfleck was the best Batman! IMO.
And Grey... you break my heart. The only reason Ezra sucks as the flash is because of how good Grant is at TV flash. It just doesn’t feel right.
But Batfleck and PatBat... I eagerly await the results.
Cyborg.... sigh. As a cyborg fan from the comics, I just don’t think what he does translates over well into live action and the actor choice didn’t help.
How can you prefer Batfleck to this masterpiece of the Bat:
I'm going to ignore what you said about Batfleck, but it's going to cost you some cool points.
No on PatBat!! Just...no, never, NOPE!!!!!
Then BRING the REAL FLASH to the Movie screen. Why is that Mission Impossible??????? Seriously.
Cyborg is an amazing character in DCUO and everywhere else, but leave it to Hollywood to get it wrong - cuz brown and intelligent...how do we cast that?( sorry, grrr!! )
And again NO PATBAT! I'll see how he fairs in TENET, but that's it.
I will freely admit to spending the vast majority of my time on SV* these days. I find it much, much more receptive to my writing (average of 80-100 likes per update, I’ve got a story at nearly 500 pages of comments). Made a good deal of friends there as well. Just...better for my writing, which never (RPs aside) picked up here.
Granted, I find their traditional (as opposed to Quests**) RP section to be rather lackluster. Less formalized, different GMing styles, the works. That’s still better here, if things haven’t changed while I’ve been there.
(I use my Discord server for more laid-back chatting, though)
*that is, Sufficient Velocity. A much better spinoff of Spacebattles.
**think choose your own adventure. The QM writes the story and puts character actions up to a vote, whereupon the readers vote or make plans. It can be character based, nation based, and anywhere in-between.
I’ve seen Pattinson in a few roles since twilight. He’s really good and versatile. Admittedly... I didn’t not see that coming. Lol. But it was a welcome surprise!
Discord is where I do most my 'chatting' too.... @Lenea_Sandstrider
Glittery Batman? This sounds like Twilight has invaded DC!
Anyways, I finally am caught up in ALL my games for the first time in. . .great glob lets not go there!
Let's just say this feels flamey-o!
I understand the logic behind the black eye makeup, I do. But could we at least have made it look a little less... My Chemical Romance?
Movie looks like a poor man’s Nolan. I’m not hyped at all. But then again, I haven’t been excited for a DC movie since Nolan. They just don’t do it for me these days.
Still early days for me to have judgement on The Batman with Pattinson... though I am surprised no one else has mentioned that Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck are returning as Batman for the Flash film.
My only criticism for the trailer is I don’t like Pattinson’s hair. I love Nolan’s Batman trilogy. It will be remembered as an all time great. The dark knight is still a close second as far as the best superhero film ever made IMO. But I don’t NEED my Batman to be like that. That’s just a take on it so I don’t always compare.
Plus, unapologetically, I’m a DC fanboy. I loved aquaman(didn’t think I would) and Man of Steel was the most accurate superman I’ve ever seen and almost made me sob like a boy when he destroyed the world engine. Joker was phenomenal.
All things aside, I’m down for the new Batman. A noir-like batman film with a Hush take on Riddler killing people? Gangster mod boss Penguin?
Edit: Cmon people give PatBat a chance. If you’ve seen Pattinson in other movies, he is a legit great actor.
Sooo... I just saw it. Dark. That's good, IMO. Batman's better when it's not flashy colors
*cough*Batman and Robin*cough*
However, I could barely see anything.
Also, is this supposed to be a follow up to the last Joker movie?
Edit: Agreed with @The Jedi in the Pumas in the pumas about Nolan's trilogy being the Gold Standard.
Negative, Joker was a standalone one-off. And an absolutely fantastic one, at that.
Sounds like you HAVE BEEN excited for a DC movie since TDK. Admit it reynar!
How about you stay here on these boards for a while? I know discord is fancy and all that, but we got a discord too!
There are folks here that miss you! It would be great to have a player of your caliber return here!
I didn’t want to point this out but yes... Gen, you have been missed buddy! Come back to us!
Teach the discord ways!
Awwwww. <3 My life is always going in a million directions; I'm a very here today, gone tomorrow. Glad to know I am remembered and missed.
Some of a best memories I have as a teen were on the boards. Both my partners and I bonded here originally and is really the reason we are together today. I don't know how long i'll be around this time, but thank you.
