    The Batman (2022)

    I was reading this other forum and came across an interesting thread about said movie.

    Lots of dissing because of the choice of R. Pattinson as the main character...

    As a matter of fact I read about this movie with a load of prejudice in my mind. Exactly because of Pattinson's previous works as a teenage vampire/wizard. But when it was time to watch it, I tried to empty my mind and give it a fair try.



    Well, having been an avid Frank Miller reader when I was younger, IMHO Pattinson and Christian Bale were the ONLY actors who ever incorporated a decent, dark Bruce Wayne. Bale being coming first.



    Just as Jack Nicholson was the Joker champion, followed by Heath Ledger who actually played the BEST Joker I've ever seen, but not exactly like the one the Comics taught me to expect.

    Btw I never recognized Colin Farrell until I read the credits!

    cool, I wasn't going to watch it but now you've got me interested. I agree about the Jokers, and Bale I thought was the best Bruce Wayne. I'll give Pattinson a try. I probably know who he is but when people were losing their minds about him portraying the role, I admit to saying "Who?"

    I'm not that into super hero movies, but I really enjoyed the Christopher Nolan films. Heath and Jack did great portrayals.

    It's all right to take characters to a different place. The original is always there to like. No one is THE Batman. Let RP wear the costume a bit and see how it goes.

    The last superhero movie that I really loved was :
