    Any thoughts on the new batman, Ben Affleck? Personally, I'm not too happy about it. Not an Affleck fan at all

    I'd like to build a time machine and find the person that told Affleck he could act and just slap the living sh*t out of them.

    Geez... We've already seen him do this already and it SUCKED !!!
    Remember "Daredevil" ??? I wish I couldn't...
    (IMHO)...The one comic to movie "screw the pooch" job of ALL time has got to be "Jonah Hex".

    Affleck was horrible playing Daredevil and he will be worse playing Batman!!! I think Bale has been the best Batman yet.

    i agree! Christian Bale is probably the best Batman i have seen as well. and Morgan Freeman and Micheal Caine were very good in the series too. i just saw the last one a few weeks ago an it was prety dang good.

    Christian Bale was by far my favorite. He's not my favorite actor but he was able to portray the dark side of batman extremely well. And I ran across this earlier on Facebook with someone talking about the new decision

    I liked Christian Bale. I thought he was the best. I liked Michael Keaton too. But I thought the other movies were just plain stupid.

    R.I.P. Heath Ledger

    The best Batman movie made so far has got to be 2008's "The Dark Knight" with Heath Ledger as the Joker.... That film was everything from dark, funny, multi-layered and frightning all rolled into one. Alot like the current run of Batman graphic novels have been... and the performances were outstanding. Although I was sadden by the death of young Ledger, I was glad he will be remembered for that final film. I had reenacting friends who worked as extras with him while filming "The Patriot" near Rock Hill SC...and everyone always commented on what a decent and humble person he was. He would not hesitate to ask for their opinion on his dress, manner or speech while having meals with the crew.
    ...The good news is the Batman animated films are increadible!! I recommend you see "Under the Red Hood" and "Batman/Superman... Public Enemies"

    ..and I'm going to let my "comic geek" flag fly here... For all you "Silver Age" fans I HIGHLY recommend "Justic League; The New Frontier"; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justice_League:_The_New_Frontier

    Yeah that was by far my favorite batman movie. I love Heath Ledger movies, such as A Knights Tale. And the fact he took so much time and put so much effort into his character is astounding. He will surely be missed. His play as the Joker could never be redone in a better preformance

    I saw his old car in Indianapolis last weekend. I'm really not a big batman fan any more though.

    Ledger did play the best Joker. Sorry "comic geek", I was a very big Marvel fan.:(. Don't get me wrong I did collect all kinds of comics which I still have.:). You can't pass up a good comic hero cartoon though!!!;). The Avengers cartoons were really good too. I have Avengers 1 & 2 on DVD.;)

    OH MAN!!... That last "Avengers" movie was fantastic!!! I liked the "Captain America" movie too! Looking forward to the "SHEILD" tv series this Fall on CBS !!

    In all honesty... I love a good story more than a particular brand of comic. That's why I love anything Will Eisner did..Especially "The Spirit"... and yes, I want to punch Frank Miller in the face over that last movie he did too!! The only good thing about that movie was getting to see Eva Mendes's backside for 1/2 a second!! :eek: ....They made a TV movie in '87 (when Eisner was alive) that was MUCH closer to the comic and I've been trying to find a DVD copy for years!!! Yes, that is Sam (Flash Gordon) Jones playing Denny Colt/The Spirit !!

    ...But I digress. Has anyone ever seen the M16 army manual/comic that Eisner did for the boys during 'Nam ??? http://www.ep.tc/problems/25/
    Man could that guy draw!! No wonder they call the "Comicbook of the year" award the "Eisner" !!

    I don't know about the "SHIELD" show yet. I was talking comics to my daughter last night because we are watching all the comic book movies. We are finishing Captain America. I didn't get to much into Frank Millers comics. My favorite comic was the X-Men, but I did collect all kinds of comics.

    Comic geeks assemble !!!

    ..My bad!!... It's on ABC this fall;
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3T-evQZiQo[/ame]
    As for the Xmen francise... With so many storylines and characters from the past 40-50 years of those comics, these movies could go on forever !!! It's getting the actors to re-sign ($$$) and what do you do when they start to age? Sooner or later you're almost always faced with the "Lazenby as Bond" issue in that case. BTW... I think the current "Spiderman" reboots suck also!!

    ..As for my previous rant on comic book to movie attempts... WHY oh WHY didn't they do my favorite "Jonah Hex" as an acid western? Make it JUST LIKE the comic... An amalgamation of "Outlaw Josey Wales", the supernatural eliments of "High Planes Drifter" and the cinimatic direction of the "True Grit" remake. ??? But then again, usually some Holey-wood insider (who's not a fan of the original material comics I'll bet) says "I can make it better!!!" :rolleyes: ...and you wind up with something like "Lone Ranger"...( :confused: then just plain :mad:)

    I know about SHIELD, but haven't decided yet.:). I never saw Jonah Hex. There are sooooo many different characters for X-Men and I think that is why that they starting from the beginning. First class was pretty good, but I'm hoping "Days of Future Past" will be good. I thought Spider-Man was good. Thor could've been better and Captain America was ok.
