  • Big Guy and Rusty The Boy Robot and Hard Boiled with Geoff Darrow were both totally amazing
  • TDKSA which was an awesome celebration of superheroes that was entirely misunderstood. It's better off as being thought of as more of a Kingdom Come, rather than a TDKII

I agree. Born Again is one of the best story lines of all time. I enjoyed the Batman stuff when I was younger... but i have since lost interest. The Daredevil work is his best overall IMO.

Preaching to the choir here. When I was a kid, I had a shrine dedicated to FM. Just don't put him anywhere near a camera or script.

The original TMNT comics were amazing..... I would love to see an animated series or movie in that vein. Though of course I loved the 80-90s series growing up, I'd like to see a less silly series sticking to the roots.

Frank Miller sucks

Ugh. Catwoman is such a boring villain, with no real substance other than to look hot. And Hathaway ain't even that hot. Thumbs down. And Bane? Lawl, nigga please. Why do they feel the need for two villains? Let me phone up the shark right now to let him know we'll be needing his services for a motorcycle stunt. I agree that the Riddler was not the right choice, though. Too soon after the Joker, and too many surface-level similarities. I wouldn't have minded a very new and very dark take on him, though. Make him less manic and more cerebral. Hannibal Lecter-esque.

Batman begins had two villains: Scarecrow and Ra's Al Ghul
The Dark knight had three villains: Scarecrow, Joker, and Two-face.

We really don't know anything beyond the fact that they are in the movie. And the way I heard it reported was that she was playing Selina Kyle, with no mention of catwoman. Right now we just have no idea how he is playing it.

Scarecrow was in TDK for 5 minutes.

+50. I was just talking to my co worker about this. The problem is Ms. Hathaway isn't sexy. Michelle Pfeiffer was sexy as Catwoman. Hathaway is too girl next doorish. They should have cast Mila Kunis in this role.

Yeah probably even less then that. I really didn't like this cameo; was pointless and took away from the pretty awesome portray of Scarecrow in Batman Begins.

I think that would have been a good idea, although I don't know if Kunis was ever up for the role.

Still, Hathaway is by no means a bad choice.

She's little and sexy, remember Catwoman is a cat burglar. What is lanky ass Hathaway sneaking in to steal?

Hathaway looks like she should have a moustache. Kunis would have been perfect.
