    This is interesting (I think). Hollywood Reporter is saying that the rumoured Joaquin Phoenix and Adam Driver (who was supposed to be up for Dick Grayson) were offered the role of Lex before Eisenberg.

    Also, while I don't have a link to hand, Latino Review purports to have some spoilerish details on the Bruce Wayne-Lex Luthor relationship and the way in which they contrast and how they each view Superman's arrival and what he represents.

    Is this what you were talking about?
    I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this. I'm trying to keep an open mind, but this is not what I expected/wanted. The Wayne/Luthor stuff sounds good, it's just the back story which gets a :crazy: from me.

    ^ Yeah that's it (I was posting last night on my phone and it gets complicated trying to have a few pages open and links going at once).

    Not sure about the back story myself but it's all in the execution. And don't forget that while Latino Review is usually pretty reliable, this could all be re-written by Chris Terrio, assuming that it was in the original draft to begin with.

    I don't know if that's remotely true, but it sounds interesting.

    ^ Good interview. He doesn't say much but he seems to know what he's doing. I like his response to the question... "Do you think it's realistic that she'd be fighting crime in what we've typically seen her in?"

    Heh, as if Bale gives a flying fart (He collected his cash and moved on). :guffaw:

    If Bale had wanted to "protect" the Franchise, I imagine he could've easily had the part (Why wouldn't WB want to include The Dark Knight Trilogy in the Universe the Current Superman Movies are building?)

    Affleck is a year and a half older than Bale, so Bale certainly isn't out of the age range, looking good at 40, compared to Affleck looking just as good at 41 and 1/2.

    ^ I agree. If anything (And that's assuming that they're talking about Batman at all), Bale is telling Affleck to ignore what the rabid fans say and just do his own thing.

    All the hate directed at TDKR?

    There was some noisy hate from a segment of online fandom, but reaction from critics and the general public was much more positive. If Bale had agreed to do so, I have no doubt WB would have continued with him in the role and tied his Batman into a shared universe with Man of Steel.

    GAH???? .03% or whatever fraction of the Multi-Billion Dollar Audience for the Trilogy? You can't be serious?:wtf:

    So many other Franchises have strode forward with a lesser starting point (and less success by the end of a trilogy and beyond) :confused:

    TDKR had its issues, but I don't think anyone outright hated the film. It was just ... messy. That's not going to ruin the goodwill created by the first two brilliant films.

    Oscar's Hero Montage

    Strangely there is A LOT of MOS in this video. They even use Russell Crowe's speech as Jor-El in it. Strange indeed. Is WB trying to keep MOS in the public's mind or are they trying rebrand MOS image that has audiences and critics divided?

    I find the lack of Chris Reeve in that strangely upsetting.

    Which would have been a disastrous idea, seeing how Nolan's Batman movies were more or less grounded in reality and had a serious, mature tone, while Man of Steel was an infantile fantasy cheesefest. Oil and water.

    ditto

    I'm a big fan of MOS, but I have to agree it was hugely disappointing not to see Reeve's Superman in there as well. Especially with all the other freakin superheroes they managed to fit in.

    Although to be fair they also ignored Keaton's Batman.
