    ... and sources indicate Nicholas Cage is the leading candidate to replace him as Bruce Wayne/Batman. :angel:

    Heh, Shouldn't have gone so far as to say Will Smith is being eyed. A Black Batman would be Controversial enough on it's own. Switching Actors in the middle of a trilogy would be tough enough. But, to switch actors, and go from White to Black in the Middle of a Trilogy, that's just too risky, for the Bean Counters, IMHO.

    Actually, with the Reboot, Will Smith might be a really fun Batman, if done from the beginning

    Of course Will Smith is being eyed. Then he can cast his son as Robin and his daughter as Batgirl!

    ^ The movie will be released in July

    -Will Smith will sing the title soundtrack with his son as backup

    -The movie makes 160 million over the weekend.

    I'd like to see all living actors who played Bruce/Batman's all in one movie.

    Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and hell why not Kevin Conroy too.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the feedback. This was my first April Fool's Day prank. :D I thought of it kind of as a writing exercise...just to see how well I could write a convincing fake article (at least until the end, when I make the joke obvious with the Will Smith bit). It was fun. To those who admitted they fell for it, thank you. That was big of you and makes me feel clever. :devil: I was hoping I'd get at least a few fanboy hearts racing just with the thread title. I know that's how I would react if someone else made a thread with such a title. This is me at my most...masochistic. :nyah:

    You got me, but I forgot it was April 1. I was like, yeah, fuck Batman, Mr. Bale.

    There's a simple solution: don't believe any new threads posted today. Especially when the "news" is as out-of-left-field as this. Keeps me sane. :mallory:
