Damn near everytime people bitch about an actor taking on a role, they end up proven wrong.
Heath as Joker
Tom Hardy as Bane
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
Ben Affleck as Batman
RDJ as Iron Man
Hollywood definitely has its share of miscasts i.e. Halle Berry as Storm, Halle Berry as Catwoman, or Topher Grace as Venom. But it's worth giving them a chance to prove their worth for better or worse. It's crazy Gal Gadot already was good, though limited, in BvS yet now she has to prove herself all over again because comic book fans hate female actresses.
I don't see anybody bitching about Ray Fisher, a Broadway actor no one knows about, being given a headlining role and promised his own movie only a few years from now.
People were actually excited for Tom Hardy as Bane
And RDJ as iron man
Brian Singer isn't a great action director. I came to terms with that years ago. The guy made Superman Returns for fucks sake.
But what he lacks in fight scenes, he more than makes up for in character driven scenes.
The Dark Knight didn't have great action scenes and it's still a top 5 comic book movie.
......uhhhhhh I don't know about that....
not to jump into you'll convo. but i think he is right. respect to what Nolan did, he really added a lot of realism in his version of batman..but the action was no different than what you see in "mission impossible", all the bourne or bond movies..
