Re: Rumor: Ben Affleck to direct 'The Batman' for 2018 release
Frankly I'm looking more anxiously forward to this than I am Justice League, since that... well, Zack Snyder. Look, maybe he'll prove me wrong in the future, and I am excited for Batman V Superman - out of the trailer and the posters, I can see that they transformed this into a WM 30 Daniel Bryan-like scenario where it was never the plan to try to cover up the blunders of Man Of Steel from a story perspective (Superman 'protecting' a city by destroying it in a fight and killing thousands, etc.) and use those as an instrument for the benefit of BVS's plot, and I like that a lot. Still won't make me think good of MOS, but yeah.
Now, I think I can start fanboying and dream casting. Most likely is that, given the background behind Batman's presence in Suicide Squad, they're going the Red Hood route, and I think Jensen Ackles is totally fit for that. But there are a few examples I consider more awesome... JOHNNY DEPP AS THE RIDDLER PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. If you're going instead for a villain you've never had, examples could be Christoph Waltz as Hugo Strange, Ray Liotta as Black Mask or Ewan McGregor as Basil Karlo Clayface (this latter would be excepionally great for a Nolan-style movie). And if there was a secondary villain, I'd like to see Baby Doll from TAS (crazy, I know, but I think DC would have the balls to pull it off, especially if JLA is a hit), played by either Chloe-Grace Moretz or Mackenzie Joy (who played young Murph in Interstellar). Besides that, I assume we'll have Jim Gordon by obligation, and even though Oldman was perfect, I say Bryan Cranston is a great replacement. And for Barbara, I would love for either Emily Blunt or Evan Rachel Wood.
