Yeah. Most likely a sell out. Limited release too. Birmingham and I think London. Sadly I only spotted it yesterday. Not enough time to plan a trip out of Leicester.

The DVD release is set for the end of the month.

The way it’s edited certainly makes you want to feel like it’s set before Infinity War ... I kind of hope it is because I’m trying to suspend my disbelief and putting a trailer out for a new film starring a character who’s meant to be dead

and featuring a cameo from someone else being dead

is like seeing the faces and heels break kayfabe as soon as the match is over to show everyone they’re friends really.

I would like to think it was set before aswell with something happening at the end to set up Infinity War and after but the film comes out after End Game so it would be all out of date.

According to leaks that came out before the trailer

 

it's after.

 

My biggest gripe though is that it shows that nothing has really changed in the world so it looks like the snap was completely reversed.

Yes its annoying. There was absolutely nothing wrong with Affleck's portrayal of Batman. That sort of older, grizzled Batman/ Bruce Wayne was great in BvS (not the film, but his bits).

It seemed that LIVE BY NIGHT really knocked him, then the studio got cold feet over the script he wrote, then he fell off the wagon. He also seemed utterly bored by the Justice League. I really like Reeves and hoped he and Affleck could make this work together.

I can't be bothered with a 'young' Batman again.  We've had that. Get another older actor. Fuck it, get Keaton back.

I don’t want a young Batman because I can’t be doing with seeing Thomas & Martha Wayne die again.

Have people started demanding Christian Bale come back yet?

I'd be shocked if it wasn't a case of writing by committee by the studio and them changing whatever he was writing to fit into their ever changing universe, especially as their knee jerk reaction to the failure of Justice League was everything needs to be less dark.

Affleck as Batman in BvS is one of the few redeeming features of that film.

 

I'd love to have Keaton back but he'd need a big silver wig and his black polo neck

There is all manner of rumour floating about why they didn't bother with the mouth-watering idea of Affleck directing a Batman film. The film was supposed to be released last year, but Warner has very clearly shat it once all the clumsy universe building and bad work they've mostly done came to a head with the Justice League ba-ba-bomb.

I definitely suspect Affleck just can't be arsed with it. Obviously, his personal life doesn't seem too rosy, but Warner seems to be coming up with new DC strategies after every other film.

Yeah, if I remember correctly he had written the script with help from Geoff Johns and the guy who did Argo with him, so clearly there was talent behind his script. WB shat it as you say. I wouldn't be shocked if this isn't set within the 'DCEU'. There's whispers it'll be 80s/90s set, but how true that is who knows.

If they make it black and white and for 50 mil as a noir thriller,I'll be all on board.
