Batman Begins Honest Trailer

With The LEGO Batman Movie topping the box office this past weekend, and Ben Affleck leaving The Batman as director (and possibly as the star according to a new rumor), there has been plenty of discussion about The Dark Knight lately. Therefore, it’s the perfect time for Honest Trailers to look back at a time when Batman became the hero we needed all over again.

Christopher Nolan gave us a near-perfect reboot of the Caped Crusader after Joel Schumacher took the superhero into goofball territory. Batman Begins is as grounded as superhero movies get, and it set up what most regard as one of the best comic book franchises ever made. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some jokes to be had at the movie’s expense, especially when it comes to how outlandish the third act really is.

Now, right on time, comes a rumor claiming just that — that Affleck would very much like out of the franchise, preferably before that planned solo movie.
