The film is directed by Zack Snyder, with a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Gal Gadot.

    Going to be getting a R-rated Blu-ray director's cut. Awesome.

    Interesting. Probably more violence. The Daredevil effect.

    Getting really hyped for this. I want to go day one, but I'm not sure I want to deal with the crowds lol.

    Part of me thinks this will be great, part of me thinks I'll hate it.

    I am pumped to be seeing this for free and a few days early. In fact I should request the following day off now.

    I'm nervously excited for this. I'm either going to really love it or absolutely hate it

    Despite not being a huge comic book person (and my opinions on comic book movies being shit), this looks awesome and I'm pretty hyped for the DC universe.

    Wtf, Colby-@Dirty Sanchez Prestigious

    Jena Malone's character is gonna be in the R-rated version and her character was "leaked." I put it in quotes because it was released in a survey for WB Forum Members only and has NDA all over them typically. Weird thing is I'm a member and I have yet to see this survey.

    I saw a theory that she's playing just plain old Barbara Gordon, which I would like because then she could still become Batgirl, but I'm still banking on that being totally in the past, and her being Oracle now, and then including a Killing Joke flashback, and my gosh I hate that comic.

    Wtf, Colby-@Dirty Sanchez Prestigious

    That's the one, and it's likely to be a Killing Joke reference since the R-rating is due to violence. I'm still interested to see how it all plays out.

    If the R-rated version has Joker shooting Barbara and the main version doesn't, I legitimately just won't watch the R-rated version. It bums me out so much that people still love that story so much.

    I mean I get the historical significance for it's time I guess but society has moved on and it definitely needs to be acknowledged. I own the graphic novel myself but haven't read it and I only bought it because it was recommended to me when I first got into comics.

    So, so, so, so many better Batman stories IMO than that one. I'm with @Tim.

    I mean, I'm also the guy that don't really like Miller's "classics," besides Year One, though.

    I'd definitely agree, although I believe the only one I read was Year One and honestly didn't really enjoy that either.

    Year One is my favorite Batman story, but I'm also a weird Batman fan. I love that it's almost more of a Gordon story, and the art is excellent.

    Never understood the Dark Knight Returns hype.

    I only recently read The Killing Joke and there was almost nothing interesting about it.

    Give us HUSH.

    I haven't read Hush since high school. Dang. Gotta revisit it.

    That's definitely my favorite, outside of Snyder's run. Apparently i'm on a Batman kick tonight, turned all these threads into Batman ones.
