Speaking about Olsen, where the hell was he in Man of Steel?

There was rumors(which was later disproved) that his gender was changed, so he became Jenny.

...So I take it he doesn't exist in the Man of Steel universe?
Or he hasn't shown up yet.

Affleck was no less but certainly not more than adequate in his (racebending) performance as Mendez, and if we're honest, his beard went a long way toward dignifying him. Pretty sure the only one calling his acting "fantastic" was his mother.

Race bending? Mendez is Irish, Italian, French and Mexican

I actually still haven't seen Argo. I keep meaning to get around to it.

The comic just seemed funny to me (given the praise I've heard about that movie).

Kinda have to agree... but he's still a much more interesting actor than he used to be, at least. Which should be enough for this movie.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I believe that the 'Jenny is a gender-swapped Jimmy' rumor was debunked by the filmmakers.

With regards to Affleck's casting, I'm not really a fan of his because he doesn't usually pick projects that pique my interest, bit he's not a bad actor so I'm not going to call foul on the casting.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Ben Affleck being Batman is not something to worry about.

Ben Affleck being Batman directed by Zack Snyder is something to worry about.

For what it's worth, the script just referred to her her as "Jenny," not "Jenny Olsen." And I didn't try to give her a last name in then novelization.

She had a last name on her work ID badge and it wasn't Olsen.

Welp, I see I was wrong there. But I stand by my statement about the beard.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

So, anyway, back to Batman: I'm listening to Geektime on Sirius and people are calling in complaining that they don't like Affleck's casting, not because of how he'll portray Batman, but because he's too much...a pretty boy…to play….Bruce Wayne?!?



Has there ever been a time in Batman history where the whole point wasn't that Bruce Wayne was a foppish pretty boy and, as a result, no one suspected he was Batman?

Did something change in a reboot that I'm not aware of?

^ In The Dark Knight, one of Joker's henchmen even calls Wayne 'pretty boy.'

That's what I thought. Sounds to me like people with a knee-jerk reaction grasping for straws to justify their geek rage
