With the success of The Avengers, you just had to know that DC (though more specifically Warner Bros.) was going to try and replicate the same model. Only one problem: Marvel/Disney took five films to accomplish this and WB is trying to do it in two. They're just trying to strike while the iron is hot and I think it's going to blow up in their face. Don't get me wrong, I'm fairly certain it will make a metric shit ton of cash. I'm just also convinced it will be Spiderman 3 level bad and not balance all the different elements out a la Whedon. Here's why...
Then they go ahead and cast Ben Affleck as Batman. Okay, interesting choice. Is he who I would have chosen? No chance in hell but I still want to give the guy a chance. I'm not sure what will happen but he's at least caught my interest and we should have an idea when Batman v. Superman comes out (or whatever they decide to call it). And I actually like the casting of Eisenberg for the exact same reason in that it raises my interest.
Truthfully I think that my biggest doubt towards this film is the director, Zack Snyder. Truthfully I haven't enjoyed a Snyder film since... 300? And even then, that film does not stand the test of time at all. So I guess I really only like Dawn of the Dead which kind of... no, I'm stopping. I like Dawn of the Dead. I think. Either way, Snyder's style over substance approach which just doesn't work for me. And when it comes to shepherding a complicated story, connecting multiple characters universes, I just don't think he's the man for the job. But then again, I guess Joss Whedon is a busy man.
What I'm Watching:
