With the news that Robert Pattinson is our new Batman, and that his debut might feature as many as SIX villains, I’m at once intrigued and exhausted.  On the one hand, it sounds like a new take on the Caped Crusader, which will be a welcome change after the Frank Millery version Ben Affleck played in ‘BvS’ and ‘Justice League.’  On the other hand, we’ve had nine and a half Batman movies since 1989, which means we’re getting The Dark Knight every third year or so.  I’m much more excited about the maybe-on, maybe-off ‘Batgirl’ film outing that keeps getting pushed back, leading to today’s redundant query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) can’t wait for the nonsense portmanteau that Pattinson recieves from fans, maybe “Pat-Man”, asking: What DC character would you like to see in a film rather than Batman?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    I could get behind a live-action Static movie. And I think that a Krypto film could be some wacky fun (leave “& the Super Pets” for a sequel, but definitely include Detective Chimp in some way.) But if we can’t get the Rock in a Black Adam movie, I don’t even know why we’re even talking.

    Oh, and it’s “Batterson,” of course ;)

  2. I’m going to go with a Jamie Reyes Blue Beetle flick. You can use Ted Kord as a mentor or just have him as an already deceased hero who Jamie’s trying to live up to. It seems like they did well with Billy Batson, so why not take a chance on another young hero?

  3. Literally anyone. I’m so over Batman. The only thing that makes him interesting is that his rogue’s gallery includes a few of DC’s best villains.

    • Not that Batman’s terrible, it’s just it’s ALWAYS Batman. There’s only so much you can do with him. DC’s stable is as big as Marvel’s, but while Marvel is giving us Dr. Strange, Ant Man and the freakin’ Guardians of the Galaxy, DC just keeps pushing the “Big 3” over and over again.
