Well prooflings it appears the internet has gone Batshit crazy.
Last night as Ben Affleck was announced to play the role of the Dark Knight, the night certainly went dark.
From a long list of internet boos and complaints to memes and more memes, the people are not happy.
But now that I’ve had some time to reflect, I don’t think Ben Affleck is going to be a huge problem. This project is a sinking ship, a last ditch effort for DC to grab some of that avengers cash.
The real problem isn’t weather or not Affleck can act as Batman… he’s a decent actor, as long as he has a director telling him what to do and how to do it…
And there in lies the problem. Zack Snyder is an amazing director when it comes to visual effects, music montages and getting girls in to skimpy outfits to fight dragons. He’s a horrible story teller and this script is not a story that DC has earner the right to produce yet.
It’s too soon for something like this. DC it putting turbo jets on the Titanic and it’s still aimed right at the Gotham iceberg.
Dear DC, listen buddy I know you’re still but hurt from not doing a Wonder Woman movie, or doing Green Lantern, or you guys ever see the 1997 Movie Steel? Holy crap, omg … seriously DC get your shit together.. but in the mean time play the field don’t try to get so serious so fast. You can’t do it right now.
You want to ever compete with Marvel? First, give up. Take a page form Tyler Durden and simply slide. I’ve meet Marvel Comics senator, and you’re no Marvel comics. So don’t push so fast, so hard. Take it down to the bare essence, story. Find amazing writers. You’re shit out of luck on the Joss Wheedon front, but other writers are out there and better directors and fresh faces. New faces, faces people can’t boo in advance because they don’t know.
Wait, forget everything I said, just get Christina Hendricks and do a series of Poison Ivy movie. Done. DC saved! Also.. Mila Kunis as Catwoman… think about it.
