Good Friday, another blockbuster opens at theaters nationwide. After what seems like an eon of hype building, the time has finally arrived.
I’ve been a Batman fan since i was old enough to look at the comic book pictures. I liked tim burton/micheal keaton batman series (even Val Kilmer’s caped cusader) of course christopher nolans trilogy is tops but now we have a new director a new batman (affleck) a new Wonder Woman and this movie is also a launching pad for other movies. much like Iron Man brought us the Avengers brand. Suicide Squad (all villians-all the time) is on the horizon, Wonder Woman and a Justice League of America movie too.
SO, what if this movie blows?
I’ve read a few critics takes on it and while one says its bad due to Afflecks Batman another says Afflecks Batman saves the movie! It’s being described as way too long, bloated, messy, jarring… the less than stellar adjectives are not flattering.
Will it be a number one movie? probably
Will it have the staying power at the box office? remains to be seen
I think if we could just skip thru to jared leto’s joker or Margo Robbie’s Harly Quinn in the Suicice Sqaud i think it’ll be just fine. That being said, i’ll probably drag myself to a multiplex and sit thru the 2 and a half hour opus…and find out for myself – good, bad or just ugly : )
