EDITORIAL: 5 Things I Want To See From Ben Affleck's BATMAN
Batmaniac lists 5 things he wants to see from Ben Affleck's Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Man Of Steel sequel. Hit the jump to check it out!
I'm sure by now you've all seen Ben Affleck suited and booted as the Caped Crusader in his glorious Frank Miller influenced Batsuit, so to coincide with the Batmania that has taken over the internet, I thought I'd list 5 things I want to see from Ben Affleck's Batman.
#5 - A darker, more disturbed Batman
I'd like Snyder and Affleck to go deeper into Batman's psyche, and show us how his obsession of avenging his parents by fighting an endless war on crime has effected Batman's mental health. Batman is a disturbed individual, but I feel it's something that hasn't really brought to light in live action.
#4 - A more aggressive Batman
Remember that time when Batman dropped Maroni off the roof? I loved that, and I want to see more of that in Ben Affleck's Batman. Batman doesn't kill, but he sure as hell inflicts pain upon his opponents, even going as far to sometimes physically torturing criminals, like Maroni, to talk. I'd like to see more of that aggressive side of Batman in Affleck's take on The Dark Knight.
#3 - The Worlds Greatest Detective
We got to see a decent amount of detective work from Batman in the Nolan Trilogy, but for most, it wasn't enough. I never had a problem with the smaller emphasis on in Nolan's Trilogy, as what was done worked for his vision, but I'd like to see a heavier emphasis on Batman's detective side this time around.
#2 - Paranoid or Over Prepared?
It's a debate within itself, but regardless of what you think, Batman has a tendency to have a contingency plan for everything, even his contingency plans. It's a side of Batman that hasn't really been explored in live action, and it's a side of Batman I'd personally like to see explored this time around. Batman is the master of prep time, so show us why, Snyder!
#1 - More Batarangs!
From the top of my head, I remember seeing 1 batarang in the entire Dark Knight Trilogy. I could be wrong, and they may have been a few more, but one things for sure, there was very little use of Batman's signature weapon. I'd like to see Affleck's Batman use batarangs more frequently than his predecessors, more in line with his comic book counterpart. Batarangs are cool, and it's time to show the world why, Snyder!
Take into consideration that there is plenty of more things I'd like to see from Ben Affleck's Batman, but for the sake of keeping the list short, I just cherry picked 5 things. Feel free to list 5 things you'd like to see from Affleck's Batman and share you're thoughts below.
