Unpopular Opinion: Batmen Ranked Edition

 

Everyone has their own favorite Batman. Every Nerd worth their salt has an opinion on who was the best Batman, who was the best Bruce Wayne, and who was the best at both. And every Nerd’s ranked list differs just a little from the Nerd standing next to them. So here’s our favorite Batmen, ranked best to worst. But this time, we want to hear from YOU. Which Batman was the best? Who didn’t cut it, in your not-so-humble opinion? How wrong were we? Post in the comment below and let us know which Batman stands where in your list. If this post does well and you opinionated (nerd)bastards comment like hell, there could be some Bat-related prizes for future posts…

A lot of Spider-Man movies have been released in the past fifteen years. Andrew Garfield’s incarnation of the web-slinger launched just four years after Tobey Maguire hung up the cobwebbed cowl. Instead of finishing The Amazing Spider-Man series, the iconic character has instead swung into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with yet another reboot now due for 2017. While it’s easy to see why some fans would be reluctant to get excited about another retelling of the same story so soon, a lot of the criticism already levelled at Spiderman: Homecoming has nothing to do with the potential lack of originality.

Hey Internet, do you like movies about ineffective robots that go back in time to muddled and defective plots riddled with holes? Then do we have a movie for you. Yes, Terminator Genisys is out and it is not good so we turned on the microphones and were unnecessarily harsh on ol’Arnie’s new movie. (Young Arnie was mostly saved from the rancor because he’s not really real.) (more…)

Recently, when Christian Bale was asked how he initially felt when he heard about Ben Affleck taking over the role of Batman, he admitted that he harbored some serious FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). That’s understandable, as Bale turned in a terrific performance in Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy (despite the mixed reaction about the gravely voice), and being a method actor, he must have invested a lot of emotionally charged energy into the role of Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego, Batman.

Welcome back to the Award Seeking RadioBastard podcast, I’m drunk.

This time on the show, we’re talking about Star Wars and a bunch of stuff that isn’t Star Wars (but mainly Star Wars,) so buckle in for some talk about Star Wars ’cause we’ve got the teaser trailer, the careful and calm dissection of that trailer, adorabot naming rights, the finer points of DYI light sabery and, disbelief over the John Boyega hate.

Oh, and the other stuff? How about: (more…)

After we heard the news back in August that Matthew McConaughey was being considered for the role of the demonic cowboy Randall Flagg in Warner Bros. movie adaptation of Stephen King’s epic 1200-page novel The Stand, director Josh Boone commented that nothing was official. However, now The Guardian are saying that it is pretty much a done deal, and we’re saying “alright-alright-alright (…that never gets old). (more…)

We’ve all seen the Batfleck and Batmobile picture from Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman VS Superman production released just about everywhere the last couple of days. Details are hard to pick out in that picture and we’ve seen some great Photoshopped examples adding color and light, not to mention all those funny Sad-Batman memes, but many people wondered how much was suit and how much was Ben Affleck. Now we’ve got some pictures of how Affleck’s training for the role is going and a nice “In the Shop” picture of the new Batmobile. (more…)

Because the soon-to-be former Time Lord and big chin having lady killer is going to need a sharp chopping tool for all the psychotic killer-y things that are sure to go down when he takes the stage for an upcoming musical that should be very familiar to fans of the 80s, slasher films, and Huey Lewis and the News.
