Unhappy Ashton Kutcher Is Batman...

What the...


E! Online reports that Ashton Kutcher is the sole candidate for the role of Batman:

That's right, Ashton Kutcher.

Yes, in a world gone mad, Kutcher moves from Dude, Where's My Car? to playing the Dark Knight. But as he is basically attaching himself to every project in Hollywood right now, when approached about Batman, he quietly attached himself to that, too. Yes, this might change, but at present, he's the man in the cowl.

As a responsible journalistic outlet, we have to ask: How the hell did this happen?! Well, when now out director Brett Ratner got close to casting Superman this year, he tested and retested Kutcher, who apparently did well. The "known mostly as a comic actor and that's even a stretch" Kutcher seemed to want Bats over Supes (who wouldn't?) and is now close to being announced as the lead in the flick to be directed by Christopher Nolan.

Brett Ratner: Apply? Hell, you have the job... *points to Ashton* Kutcher, you're out... David ******** You're in!!

Gah....


Why him of all people? Nothing like kicking a dead franchise when it is already down. I gave up on Batman, when they let George Clooney done that costume. Not that George is such a bad actor, but he did not fit the Batman role at all, and even he knows it.

Gah........ what a dissapointment......

Hmmm. Disapointing. But who knows? Maybe he can really act and might be good for the role.

The only good Batman movie was the first anyway. Batman Returns was allright, but it wasn't as good as the first. So now Ashton Kutcher will be batman?

I just hope to God that the next Batman is going to be a comedy, or a spoof.

I agree with Obi-Wan.
I didn't even bother going to see the fourth one after the disappointment that was Batman Forever (with the possible exception of Jim Carrey, but even so...)

I certainly wouldn't bother to go see a fifth. Why would anyone? I thought the comic-book-into-a-movie-bandwagon was dying with the Hulk (which I have to say, from the trailers, looks ropey at best). Why bother resurretcing Batman?

As for who plays Batman, does it matter? Really?

This is the Batman that Christopher Nolan is directing? I still think this could be pretty good. Kutcher is mostly seen as a comedic actor, but the same was true of Michael Keaton before he was cast as Batman. I like Ashton Kutcher, if nothing else, he's got the build for the part.

Apart from "dewd, where'z mah car?", has our dear Ashton been in any other movies of recognition?






'Coz I'm not renting that steaming pile of **** just to check him out.


And by checking him out, I mean that in the most manly, viking way.

Erm...
Isn't that the way you mean you don't mean?
Not that there's anything wrong with it if that's what you're into.

You implying something, aye?


Chieftain: And when we come to the Franks, we will slay the women and ravish the men!

*embarrased silence*

Viking 1: Wait, do you really mean we should ravish...

Chieftain: No, of course not! Slip of the tongue! We will slay the men and ravish the women!

Viking 2, femme voice, highly annoyed: Look, I can't see why those of us who want to slay the women and ravish the men shouldn't be allowed to!

Chieftain: OK, OK, nevermind!

Any comic book character is easy money, even if it is a flop in the box office. Merchandising is a big money spinner these days, and I would assume Batman would make plenty in that perspective.

As for Ashton being the Bat, wouldn't he say something stupid like "So, Alfred, am I Bruce or am I Batman?"


Any resemblence to intelligence in my posts is purely coincidental and accidental..

Man, I really hope that is not true. There's no way I can see him doing that role. Though anythings possible because he's dating Demi Moore now

Yeah, that was hilarious, has to go to some show with his squeeze, but have her ex-husband accompany them.

But that guy is not suited for Batman.

who cares if he's Batman or not.

Just dont go see this movie. That will send a clear message to Hollywood not to mess with a classical hero with a cult fallowing.

Ya, I agree, Ashton Kutcher doesnt have black hair, he doesnt have the batman attitude, and he is way too, ummn crazy, to be the serious batman. I think he would be great at the robin position

If Ashton plays Batman then Willam Scott (the guy who played Stiffler in American Pie....cant remember his first name) should be Robin for the perfect balance to f**k the movie up.....


When I get home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do ya do it man? Why? Just some war junkie?" Ya know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.
