Won't happen

NERD RAGE!!!!
 
2013-08-24 11:07:18 AM
Is he going to be the evil business person or the silly lycra wearing super criminal?

Watching Ben Affleck as batman will be worse then loosing a ball to cancer.
 
2013-08-24 11:08:05 AM
I'll accept it.  Deactivating nerd rage. Heisenberg trumps weak Batman casting.

Bah, formatting.

After seeing Meth in the Middle, I think Bryan's getting typecast. Although maybe a slightly neurotic Lex Luthor prone to a bit of the ultraviolence might be interesting.
 
2013-08-24 11:10:51 AM
I am the Luthor.
 
2013-08-24 11:11:53 AM
I have only seen Cranston in the ads for Breaking Bad, not the series.
What I know him from is Malcolm in the Middle and Seinfeld.
I hope he brings his BB ad persona, but I would love to see a bit of Malcolm's dad. Though, not as campy as Hackman's Luthor.

Also, can we hire someone to give Cavil some hair transplants?

Cookin' up some blue Kryptonite?
 
2013-08-24 11:13:42 AM
I'm in.

will give Affleck a chance sine I gave ledger one.

I was hoping for Cranston in the 2015 star wars

I want to see the 90's Clone Luthor with the long luxurious red hair.
 
2013-08-24 11:15:18 AM
So its head first back into the Joel Schumacher batnipples universe then?
 
2013-08-24 11:15:19 AM
I think Affleck could make a good Batman. He's got the acting chops. There was a lot of this kind of nerdrage when Michael farking Keaton was chosen to be the original Batman, and he turned out to be the best Batman evar.

Affleck is a great choice for Batman... Lets be honest the bar is so low right now anyway after Bale's horrendous "cookie monster" version.

I'm hoping for a Chasing Joker scenario.

He was fantastic in Drive as the crippled auto mechanic. Furthest thing from Walter White.

An above image may actually be onto something... why not cast him in Star Wars VII?
 
2013-08-24 11:18:07 AM
Relax, dorks. It's a movie. At worst, you're out $9.50 and a couple of hours.
 
2013-08-24 11:18:28 AM
Why is Hollywood continually making movies over and over again? I mean seriously, gets some new ideas.
 
2013-08-24 11:18:52 AM
I'll tell you one person who LOVES Ben Afleck as Batman- Joel Schumacher.  He REALLY wishes he could put nipples and an exagerated crotch on Benny boys suit...

Wish they had given nips and a cameltoe to Alicia Silverstone...or just retitled the 1989 version.
 
2013-08-24 11:18:52 AM
Another badly acting hack casting.  Are they trying to kill DCs movie franchises.
 
2013-08-24 11:18:54 AM
This thing is being rushed into production to compete with Marvel rather than taking the time to develop the series (like Marvel did). It is also being directed by Snyder and will continue to perpetuate the overly brooding Nolan tone that only worked for two movies.

This movie was doomed long before they cast Affleck.

I'm sure Affleck, Cavil, and Cranston will all do their best to make the movie watchable.
 
2013-08-24 11:19:24 AM
Batman and Superman should "tread lightly"

PsyLord: Is he going to be the evil business person or the silly lycra wearing super criminal?


It's going to be the human-firster, aliens shouldn't be the height of achievement evil businessman, I assume...but man, a small part of me wants to see Cranston in the green powersuit.

Hollywood is the new comic book industry. Get used to multiverses, reboots, retcons and general running shiat into the ground.

/Actually the comic book analogy helps me enjoy it more.
 
2013-08-24 11:20:53 AM
I won't give into nerd rage until I see the movie.
 
2013-08-24 11:22:14 AM
So we'll see Lex Luthor in his tighty-whiteys?
 
2013-08-24 11:22:45 AM
Breaking Batman?

2013-08-24 11:23:27 AM
Meh... type-cast.  Not interested.
 
2013-08-24 11:24:02 AM
Cranston already pretty much plays Lex Luthor in BB.
 
2013-08-24 11:25:21 AM
Why not Andy Dick?
 
2013-08-24 11:26:29 AM
Nice try, subby, but Affleck is still the worst casting in the history of ever. Why won't studio executives listen to the spittle and tear-stained advice of fanboys? Now, they're stuck torrenting a clearly inferior film.
 
2013-08-24 11:26:32 AM
The problem with Ben Affleck is you look at him and think "yeah, I could beat that guy in a fight."  How is he going to get any respect as Batman?  I wish they had picked some unknown person to do it, it's not like they need a recognized name for these movies.

Hold up. When was the last Batman/Superman movie?

There is always uncertainty with Heisenberg.

Don't you know you'll never get any good bites on that on a weekend?

But the real question is...What will Lex Jr. be eating for breakfast?
 
2013-08-24 11:28:05 AM
I heard that Gabriel Iglesias is considering the role of Otis.

Are we going to Addis Ababa, Mister Luthor?

Spoiler: Breaking Bad ends like the sopranos.

Good batman, bad bruce wayne.

Afleck?  Acting Chops?   No.  He simply plays himself in everything he does.  That's not acting.
 
2013-08-24 11:29:27 AM
I wonder if they'll have some sort of relationship between Wayne/Batman and Luthor like they established in Kingdom Come.  Luthor is a human firster, and Wayne appears to be going along with it just to find out what Luthor is really up to so he can derail the plans.   That seems the most likely way you can tie Batman into the Superman movie while at the same time at least tacitly putting Superman and Batman at odds with each other to appease all the fanboys dying to see the two fight.

/would have preferred to see Mark Strong as Luthor
 
2013-08-24 11:30:36 AM
*Breaking News*

Follow Up: Upon news that Ben Affleck had been confirmed as the new Batman, Bryan Cranston has now declined to take part in the upcoming Man of Steel/ Batman film. He had previously been cast as Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor.

Instead, Cranston has now chosen to do a reboot of The Mighty Ducks.
