B&R wasn't good (though for the self-mocking romp it is, it isn't horrible either)
No, it was horrible.

I've always felt that if you look at Batman & Robin as a comedy it kind of works.

That's exactly what it was meant to be -- a campy comedy in the spirit of the Adam West sitcom. Its problem is that it didn't fully commit to that and inserted moments of awkward drama, so that it lacked a consistent tone.

Re: Cast the new Batman

^ Not to mention an overstuffed , mostly played-straight action finale. It's a mess, to be sure. But then, TDKR is a mess, too, and B&R is shorter. The former has better moments, but, given a choice (and forced to actually watch that choice), I'll take the latter any day. After all, sure, Hathaway looked fantastic, but Uma's vamping was a lot hotter.

I'm a fan of Morgan but it doesn't work for me.

Me either. He might make a good recast for Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man, however.

I doubt it. Morgan and RDJ are pretty much the same age. Marvel will want to go for someone younger when they recast Stark.

^Yeah I know. He looks a little less weathered though, IMHO. But in general, it's likely they'll go for a younger man. The days of Sean Connery 'making way for an older man' (as he famously joked about Roger Moore) are long gone.
