Here’s a thought: maybe don’t bash the casting decisions until we see the movie. Remember, there was a ton of backlash when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker.
@WhiterunHoldGuard, as an 80s kid, I can confirm this kind of rush to judgement has bitten people in the backside time and again. Michael Keaton as Batman springs to mind.
@WhiterunHoldGuard, while all Jokers are great for their own reasons (aside from Leto) Ledger's Joker just hit the heaviest and hardest
@WhiterunHoldGuard, the entire cast of Star Trek The Next Generation were also mocked before the series aired and well…
@WhiterunHoldGuard, this. Exactly this ^ I’ve said it before and I’ll say it every time someone bïtches about a casting choice, a change in a remake/reboot in movies and games. Like bruh, chill the fück out. Don’t bash casting choices just because you don’t like it, nor bïtch about a change in a story, a characters look, nor gameplay mechanics. i . e FFVII Remake. Even as a huge fan of a property you have no say WHATSOEVER in what a director and/or studio wants to do with THIER property. I mean, how would you like if you were writing a sequel to a well known story that’s your “baby”, or directing a movie, or developing a game and someone on the internet found out you’re making a change and they send you and your family death threats. Not fun is it?
And as you said people bïtched about Heath Ledger casting. Again they sent death threats. And now everyone’s been sucking all over his dïck (RIP dude)
@Sterling M Archer, Ben Affleck as Batman. Again people bïtched and complained, and he became the most comicbook accurate Batman we’ve seen on screen (aside from the killing but I overlook it as it’s been explained he’s in a very dark place in his life and it’s a different universe, so different rules. And it’s not like Balebat or other versions of Batman didn’t kill either. So it’s hypocritical that people complain about Batffleck killing when he’s far from the only Batman who’s done it, don’t ya think?)
So, when a casting choice, reboot, remake, a change in a story, doesn’t workout, don’t get your panties in a bunch, it’s not the end of the world.
I know I want on a bit of a tangent there, but eh, rant over
@WhiterunHoldGuard, or george Clooney in Batman and Robin…wait, they are right about that one
@WhiterunHoldGuard, I thought it was funny but I am curious to see how it goes
@WhiterunHoldGuard, okay but this casting announcement was a straight up shjtpost though.
@twopotatoes, if being Joker is what unhinged him, I'd gladly have skipped the movie in favor of him living.
@Suicide Squad Sucks, how about Pattinson as Batman?
@Child Slapper, I'm reserving judgement until I get a chance to see it (points to previous comment)
He's so cool
I know why he’s doing it. Cuz he likes money
Good luck to him,
‘Cause dance off bro!
