This has predictably led to a shitstorm online, as if the residual shittiness of the Twilight movies will somehow contaminate this one. It's a very immature position to take.

Okay fine Jason Statham. I'd settle on RDJ.

It's official now. It'll be a young Batman once again, and one who clearly isn't the same character as Batfleck of the DCEU, which means we'll most likely see yet another iteration of the Waynes being murdered. They don't need to keep showing us this stupid scene over and over again. Yes, Bruce Wayne's parents were murdered. We know already. It was a well-known tragedy in Gotham and an event of enormous importance to Bruce, so there are a number of ways this information could be conveyed to whatever small percentage of the audience that needs a reminder without showing us a dreary flashback. But they'll probably show it because they have it ingrained in their heads that it's the most effective, dramatic way to do it, and also to make it clear that this is a whole new Batman. Besides that, my hopes for the movie are that they put down those same two Frank Miller comics that Batman movies keep mining for influence again and again and again, drop the grimdark edgelord shit, show a more stylized, interesting Gotham, and ease up on the realism, especially when it comes to how Batman moves and fights. He's a superhero, for fuck's sake. Let him pull off ridiculous stunts, solve problems with silly gadgets from his belt, kick the shit out of his enemies in straightforward fights where we can see what's happening, and look cool while doing all of it.

Batman is the greatest capeshitter in history and deserves more movies than every other capeshitter put together. Take your skepticism back or Batman will visit you in the night and kick your ass.

Batman Forever Gotham is best Gotham.

I'm willing to bet right now that they won't show the murder again. They may reference it, but I don't think they'll show it.

On the notion of casting pancy boys in mens roles.

Pattinson has come a long way since the Twilight movies, having lately taken on a number of challenging, ambitious roles in collaborations with noted auteurs like David Cronenberg. I'm sure he'll hit the gym and get swole before he dons the Batsuit.

Batman Forever Gotham is best Gotham.

My vote for the best Gotham goes to Arkham Knight, as I explained some pages back, but I respect your opinion. Schumacher may have realized more than any other director that there had to be something that people actually liked about Gotham for the city to have lasted so long.

I'm willing to bet right now that they won't show the murder again. They may reference it, but I don't think they'll show it.

Because of the recent backlash against the number of scenes in which the Waynes are murdered, or for another reason?

Shazam! isn't just the best DCEU movie, but the best capeshit I've seen in a good long while. Part of it is the setting - a sympathetic portrait of working-class Philadelphia, full of genuine atmosphere and fleshed-out side characters that provides a wonderful backdrop for the antics on display. The kids in the foster home are all unique, memorable, and annoying at times, but ultimately lovable. Zachary Levi is terrific in the lead role, and the banter and shenanigans shared between him and his foster brother Freddy are both hilarious and relatable.

I do have my issues, as always. I still think Billy was aged up too much, as I can't see this moody, standoffish teenager as the enthusiastic, outgoing superhero Levi plays. Sivana has almost nothing to do with the character from the source material, and ends up being an "evil counterpart" in the vein of Black Adam instead of a mad scientist, which makes me wonder how fresh Black Adam (whom the movie teases) will feel when he inevitably shows up. And the third act of the movie is far too stretched, leading to a climax that just keeps on going and going and going, which is a little tiring. But those are minor quibbles. Shazam! has the heart and sincerity of Wonder Woman with the mischievous humor and irreverence of GotG. What more could you ask for?

Iron Man.  Best anime:  Justice League:  Doom.  Or the first Burton Batman for the great Batman vs Joker chemistry, if you like villain drama.  Though the Gene Hackman Lex Luthor was unforgettable and Heath Ledger joker will probably change all the future Jokers.

Runners up:  Elektra, or, the 2009 Wonder Woman anime.  Both sadly overlooked.  Or Batman Returns for the two great villains.  Spider-Man 2 and Captain America:  First Avenger also not bad.  And Tom Huddlesworth Loki probably also redefines that villain.
I read light novels here and my favourite light novel is king of gods. This is one of the best.

This movie might not end up being the disaster I predicted a year or so ago. It's modestly-budgeted, has a respectable cast, and seems to have gotten most people on the Internet very excited. But personally, I'm just not interested. It looks so predictable and boring, and I just know that there's a certain toxic subculture that'll take all the wrong messages from this movie and run with it like it's the new Fight Club or TDK for years to come. A story about an angry white man violently retaliating against society will be more than those people can resist.

It's gotten good reviews so far, for what it's worth.
