Re: Super Hero Movies - a rant

Personally I could care less for another Spider-Man flick. They've done enough with his standalone movies to hold me over for a long long time. As for the character himself, I wouldn't mind him appearing in Team flicks like The Avengers and Captain America (both of which have been announced). Putting Spidey alongside other heroes is going to revitalize the character and all but assure us that we never have to sit through another redundant Origin story.

As for Batman being "rebooted" so soon after Bale's version, it's not really a reboot. Batman V. Superman is using Frank Miller's The Dark Knight book in which we have Bruce Wayne who retired as Batman long ago and has been out of the Superhero game. So, with an "older" character, starting a 'New" Batman with  Ben Affleck makes sense and I welcome it.

The last thing I gotta address is how DC/Warner Brothers are doing things. They have taken a page from Marvel and cut out the long setup and just decided to get to their "Avengers" universe quicker with the Justice League which EVERYONE wants to see....including Mac.  ;D ;) I like this sped up process as I don't want to have to sit through 5 standalone flims and 5 years before we get to see what we all want to see. This is the one good thing DC/WB has done. What I don't like and what actually p*sses me off is that they are treating their TV series as the ugly stepchild (Arrow, The Flash and the forthcoming Legends of Tomorrow). This is insulting to fans of those shows. Hell, WB already cast a different actor in the role of Barry Allen, aka The Flash. Not cool. The actors that play The Flash and Arrow on TV should be allowed to play in the sandbox that is DCU.
