Huh?

Even as someone who liked the Daredevil movie okay, this bit of casting news makes me raise my eyebrows. I think his strength lies in directing. This is basically a reboot of the character, not that much beyond the latest reboot.

I will certainly give it a chance - the casting of Heath Ledger as the Jokes back then caused me to go "huh?" as well and I think he turned in a brilliant performance - because Batman is my fave superhero and I think a combined Supes/Batman movie has potential but...hm.

That said, there are other actors I would have prefered. And one unrealistic choice I would have personally prefered very much and wish someone would rescue from their current position of drek and constant under-valuation.

Oh, I didn`t know that story. Interesting take on it.

It baffles me PR-wise, though. They must know that casting announcement will be met with outrage. I figure with them trying so obviously desperately to get their own versions of the Avengers up-and-running, they would try more to build up goodwill from the comic fan crowd. There are some actors with whom that would have worked.

Maybe they think they are doing the RDJ thing here back when he was first cast as Ironman. Um, nope. That was different.
