The Caped Crusader has returned in grand style. I’m not talking about that absurd Ben Affleck movie hitting theaters this weekend where he squares off against Superman. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the last Affleck superhero disaster. Daredevil was my absolute favorite comic book growing up and until the recent TV show, it was tainted by that epic fail.
Plus, any movie entitled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that has all the critics hailing Wonder Woman as the biggest highlight can’t be very good. Maybe they could take a cue from Marvel studios about catching lightning in a bottle. But there is another DC movie slated for 2017 that aims to finally deliver on a top notch Batman film.
To be fair The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger was pretty great. But this one is poised to be even better. And it seems pretty clear that Will Arnett will be the best Batman ever. I mean, he’s beat boxing in the trailer. Batman. Beat boxing. Followed up by a mic drop. Seriously, can it get any better than that?!?
So if you see the Affleck movie this weekend and it sucks… don’t blame me. I told you so. But then I’ve always been more of a Marvel guy so I’m a little biased. And there’s no question Captain America: Civil War will be the battle to see this year. No contest. That said, I’m also anxious to see the Lego version of Batman. It’s gonna be sick ya’ll.
