I know you're not one of those fakes and pansies online that always claim "I'm done with superhero movies!", only to go back and watch them like nothing happened. I can tell you the real deal. With that said, I'm not 100% done with superhero movies. I just make it to a point to watch what only interests me. If I miss out on a movie, or if I don't feel it is to my taste, no big deal.As someone absolutely done with superheroes I fully recommend it. Felt 100% driven by its own story instead of checking off certain boxes.
They're imbeciles who don't pay attention, and only finding everything "wrong".Some reviews say the film is humourless, but I found most of the dry wit and funny looks landing where they were supposed to.
Speak for yourself. We had more than a few couples in the early showing we went to at the AMC.(not a good date film either, these long ones never are)
Seldom seen?Matt Reeves' The Batman makes a compelling argument for superheroes seldom seen, the hero who inspires you to choose hope over nihilism.www.escapistmagazine.com
I wouldn't be so abrasive. It's not a comedy film by any meansThey're imbeciles who don't pay attention, and only finding everything "wrong".
Of course there were some, but very very few compared to the previous movie I went to cinema for, No Way Home. The Batman just really doesn't feel like a movie you'd take your gf to. I can imagine myself rambling about DC comics for a couple of hours after the movie and subsequently never talking to that date ever again. Though I'll give you that we are not as comics crazy as Americans, not even close. For example the only monthly superhero comic book in circulation over here is Spider-Man.Speak for yourself.

And yet whatever comedy bits are there, actually work fine within the movie itself, and don't feel out of place or out of tone. I'm abrasive, because you have so many people that are dead set against the movie and making all these false claims and criticism, yet almost none of them seem the movie or still have not. There's different strokes, for different folks, but I'm seeing a lot of bandwagon jumpers on the hate territory. In the painting, most of these people making is nonsense complaints are more abrasive than what I'm doing right now.I wouldn't be so abrasive. It's not a comedy film by any means
They said the same about Deadpool.The Batman just really doesn't feel like a movie you'd take your gf to.
Understandable.Though I'll give you that we are not as comics crazy as Americans, not even close. For example the only monthly superhero comic book in circulation over here is Spider-Man.
Composite Character: He's the Riddler, no doubt; though his masked appearance, very unsettling demeanor, and unassuming scrawny physique out-of-costume can also bring The Scarecrow to mind. His mask, jacket, and ties with Bruce Wayne are also reminiscent of Hush, and he takes the role of the murderer of Carmine Falcone from Two-Face and the Holiday Killer. He also has shades of the Joker, having a twisted sense of humor, and his extreme hatred of a corrupt Gotham and having a gang of like-minded followers brings to mind the Arthur Fleck incarnation of the Joker. When he meets the Clown Prince himself in Arkham, they even shares a laugh and seem to strike up common ground! And, him being a masked terrorist who has a bone to pick with the Waynes because he blames them for the deplorable living conditions he grew up in, specifically targeting Bruce, and who ironically praises Batman for working to bring down a corrupt system brings to mind Vicki Vale/Lady Arkham from Batman: The Telltale Series. The difference is that Thomas Wayne really was responsible for Vicki's pain, but Edward's pain was an unfortunate consequence of a corrupt system taking advantage of Thomas's murder.
This movie is not an example of a composite character. Its not a composite character if you keep the character name, but change their appearance, motivation, backstory and actions. That's called "getting the character wrong".@SilentPony, They did not pull an Iron Man 3 on us. That's just you using a tin foil hat theory. This Riddler is a composite character of himself, Hush, and Scarescrow. I did notice the combined elements. There was no last minute replacement. Believe whatever you want, I do not care. I just wanted to point that out.
This is nothing new to Batman adaptions, as a majority of them had some kind of expy of either a more obscure character from the comics or a combination of the two. Batman '89 has done it. Batman: The Animated Series has done. The Dark Knight Trilogy has done it. And so on.

They did not get the Riddler "wrong". They did something different, and combined some elements. Deal with it, or don't. Not my problem. You do realize this version is more like a combination of the Zodiac Killer, the Killer from Se7en, and Jigsaw (Ironic as Riddler was doing games way before Jigsaw became a thing) as well? Don't answer that, rhetorical question. Also, it's an alternate universe and else-worlds. Not everything has to be "SUPER 1000% ACCURACY OR DIE!!!!!". You may not like it for being different, but it's there and most don't have a problem. Plus, as much as I like Jim Carrey, this Riddler is a better rendition of the character, than the Ace Ventura/Jack Joker wannabe from Forever. With or without the comparison.
And that's the big flaw with The Batman. It just got the Riddler wrong. Hopefully they fix it in a later movie, because its a pretty glaring and obvious post-production change.
