The world of movie news isn’t always kind to films that showcase growing pains as they come together – when you don’t have the full story, everything is a sign of serious trouble to come. This was the case with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last year and it’s now the case with Warner Bros.’ The Batman. We still don’t know exactly why Ben Affleck vacated the director’s seat, but the internet immediately assumed the worst because that is what the internet does.

So how about some positive buzz for once? Specifically, it seems that the latest draft of The Batman has arrived and everyone is happy with what they’re seeing.

coolio batman

I’m not going to turn this post into a defense of Joel Schumacher‘s much-maligned Batman movies, but if someone cut me a check with the appropriate number of zeroes and asked me to defend them, I could do it! Few movies are so unique in their terribleness, so astonishingly wrongheaded as to cause migraines amongst fans 20 years later. I could talk about these movies all damn day. They are as fascinating as they are misguided, which means they’re reeeally fascinating.

And they could have been even more fascinating/misguided, because rapper Coolio says that Schumacher promised him the role of the Scarecrow in next movie, which never got off the ground.

Being Batman Documentary

What kind of person decides to put on a superhero suit and patrol the streets of their hometown? You would think that it’s only in comic books and movies that these kind of people exists, but there are real people out there who take it upon themselves to suit up like superheroes and fight crime. It seems easy to brush them off as being off their rocker, but a new documentary short just might have you sympathizing with one of these heroes that would might otherwise disregard as crazy.

Being Batman is a documentary short that profiles a man named Stephen Lawrence, who dresses up like Batman, drives around a suburb called Brampton in Toronto, Canada, and walks the streets looking to apprehend criminals. And this isn’t just some scrawny kid being some kind of aggressive hall monitor. This is a buff, athletic man with martial arts skills and ninja weapons. That might sound ridiculous, but this short doc shows he’s the real deal. Read More »
