Last night I got sidetracked by real life and found myself in an emergency room waiting area from about midnight until well after seven this
morning... so missed a couple of points I was planning to make but ended up unable to. I am happy to see that others did touch upon them though...
The Keaton issue is one. Being an old man, I can remember the absolute furor over the casting of Micheal Keaton as Batman... and it turns out he not
only did a good job - he is pretty much the template for how to play Batman in a movie.
Then again I can also remember people being very pleased with Clooney... and we all know how that turned out.
As I see it, casting ( and playing ) Batman has become fairly easy - provided they don't need to spend time on back story or deep character
development. A square jaw, a husky voice, and a decent physique. Especially for the Batman versus Superman angle.
It's casting and defining the movie version of Superman where DC keeps messing things up, over and over again IMO. I realize that a lot of people
loved Man of Steel... but to me it's like they got influenced by Twilight and the only thing missing from emo Superman is the sparkly skin.
