“He is the hero Gotham deserves, not the one it needs.”
Hereby i express my views on the topic that has much fuss about. Alright,We are talking about one of the most powerful and probably the most loved superhero character, BATMAN. He has no super powers like superman, flash, thor, hulk or Kamal R Khan i guess. The only things he has is his super detective mind, his sharp knowledge about technology, sensible feelings about his city Gotham. Are superheroes born orphans or do orphans eventually turn out to be a superheroes.
Back to the Batman, he is the superhero character with having the most number of Comic book adaptations in Hollywood movies and characterized by different directors with different actors having change in plot frequently. The last Batman Series ‘The Dark Knight trilogy’ directed by Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale as Batman was more successful than the other adaptations of Batman in previous years. It is just because of superb cinematography and directing by Nolan that made Dark knight achieve new heights. And the actor Christian Bale, is one of the few Method actors in Hollywood who reduced his weight to 49 kg for a movie called ‘The Mechanist’.
So whats the fuss about?
The director of ‘Man of Steel’, Zack Snyder is making a movie called ‘Batman vs Superman : Dawn of Justice’ and the lead actor of Oscar winning film ‘Argo’, Ben Affleck is chosen for the role of Batman.
Well well well this is now becoming a topic for discussion and a bit matter for concern for some Hollywood critics. According to them, Ben Affleck for the role of Batman is totally wrong choice. He looks a little fatty and is not suitable compared to Nolan’s dark knight series. Now it was turn for critics who then made memes of Ben which all of a sudden went viral on internet. In an interview, Ben Affleck clarified that the upcoming movie is not connected with dark knight trilogy and it will not harm any ‘ morals and values ‘ of Nolan’s Batman. He also said ” I don’t know whether I am perfect for the role or not, but I will give my 100% to be exactly what audience want. ” (clap …clap…clap..).
But you know what Ben affleck can do anything after all. Right from rescuing people in his movies to act as a superhero, one cannot easily stop him. Had Anurag Kashyap ever called Ben he would have surely agreed to do the role of Sardar Khan. Sardar khan naam hai hamara, bata dijiye ga sabko. Ok wait im sounding too optimistic i guess.
Hey Bat Fans, I am talking to you right now, Batman will always be the one who is in the DC comics since 1939 AD and he will always be the real one, Gotham’s Knight for the forever fans. No matter how many movie adaptations takes place, He will always be The Goddamn Batman.!
As Commissioner Gordon said in the dark knight series ,
“He is not a hero..he is batman..and Batman can be any one!” Right from Uday chopra to Ishant Sharma. 😀
