Re: The Batman (June 25, 2021)

Here is my take with all of the news recently surrounding The Batman which debuts June 2021.

1. Jonah Hill as The Riddler

To simply be honest Jim Carrey played The Riddler in Batman Forever, and he is a stand up comic who is known for comedy.

Jonah Hill is a man who I believe won an Oscar (or maybe just was nominated), something to The Riddler that Jim Carrey didn't. And like Carrey, Hill got his start in comedy making us laugh in hilarious comedies.

Just like Jim Carrey.

Do anyone see the point I am trying to make?

2. Getting Jeffrey Wright to play Commissioner Gordon

I think he will do a good job, though I do not feel it is a smart move financially to change over 80 years of history since Gordon simply is a white dude with a mustache. Changing this is probably not the smartest thing you can do, since it is ingrained in our minds of who Gordon is. An old tired white haired dude with a mustache.

James Woods as Commissioner Gordon would knock it out of the park methinks.

3. Robert Pattinson as Batman

Well considering 49% of people do not think he will pull it off has me concerned. When he is down and moody, will people have flashbacks of Edward Cullen from that abominable Twilight series?

He always struck me as a roto type. Pass the blunt please!

Either it will have a Spider-Man homecoming vibe? Where Zendaya is accepted (even though she didn't do as well as she should have) by the masses, or Flash Thompson is changed into an Indian dude, and it's accepted, or it could have a Fantastic 4 vibe?

Michael B. Jordan anyone? Where the fans are so irate you changed 80 years of history.

Making Catwoman or Batgirl a person of color is also not a smart move, since Halle Berry played her, and that film completely bombed!

Make her a Latina instead. For one I always thought Catwoman was Latina anyways. Can you imagine her when she rolls her r's as she says puuuurrrrfect!

I think sometimes casting different races is a good idea, but to put it simply, the intent is not to find the best actor that is suited for the job in looks, and skill- oh no! The intent is to simply find a person of color that will simply...do. Since this has been done so many times with changing races, and the acting is just plain bad.

Case in point Zendaya as MJ. A grumpy I am a millennial woman hear me roar no man is good enough for me type.

It is not done in the right way. It is done to be progressive, I get it, but also it is done for charity. See, we have a person of color in this film, and see, it shows we're not racist.

Now, there is not a racist bone in my body, but I do believe it is at times done for charity.

It should be done at times, but it should be done with the right intention.

Earth Kitt as Catwoman?

Love it!

Billy Dee Williams (at least I think that's his name) as Harvey Dent?

Love it!

Denzel Washington as Magneto?

I'm sure he'll be great!

Shows that displayed people of different ethnic backgrounds were Sesame Street and Star Trek Voyager to name a few.

It worked well on Sesame Street because it established itself as that. And it worked on Voyager because they could act and they all have great rapport with the characters. It was about the characters and not serving their own ego about who they are. They were great because they were the character, but it could be possible that when Catwoman, or Batgirl is cast, people will think yeah, maybe she did the job, but that's not the character. That is what people will think. You have to make people believe you.

Case in point Deadshot and Killer Croc were both black. They spoke and acted like African American men. But what it the actual character like? They missed many opportunities of exploring the actual character by changing their race.

Zendaya failed on many aspects in the Spider-Man films. And it makes me wonder what Peter sees in her. Ned was great! Tom was great! But grumpy haughty Zendaya? No thanks. I'm afraid that might happen in this Batman film.

They will talk about civil rights, and slavery and how it's wrong (which everyone already knows). This was touched on in Homecoming, and I felt it was unnecessary to the overall plot.

There are changes made with the character, the attitude, and the overall mood changes when you do these things.

Sometimes it works.

Sometimes it doesn't.

I just hope the film is good however because I love Batman, and it's great to be around people who love him as well.

Re: The Batman (June 25, 2021)

Why do they feel the need to change iconic comic book characters races? It’s irritating....Gordon should be played by a white guy, he’s known for that iconic mustache. Anyways I’m not sure if I’m even going to see this movie

Because Hollywood only sees in black/white. the casting choices for Catwoman is like ehhh... Nothing special. Same names tossed up for most stuff, would have been nice for some actual change.

Makes them feel better about themselves, like they're actually accomplishing something. They're like the people who hand a homeless person a few bucks and thinks they're accomplishing some great feat.


All in all, regardless of catwoman casting and all of that and the casting looks pretty meh. The biggest sin is Hill as the Riddler, I'm sorry but no. Not even sure how's he been considered for any awards, he's not a great actor.

Re: The Batman (June 25, 2021)

after seeing a joker movie set in the 80's, i actually wouldn't mind seeing more superhero flicks set in the past. these are "legends" after all.

a batman (or superman) movie set during the 30's or 40's would be fucking killer imo.

Re: The Batman (June 25, 2021)

Isn't this supposed to be set in the 90s?

It'd be cool for the plot to center around the turn of the century and the Y2K phenomenon. Imagine the climax taking place just as 2000 hits and there's fireworks everywhere.
