Just a thought, looking at this picture again. Batman has had different length ears throughout the spans of decades. The shorter ones have been most prevalent in a lot of the comic book iterations, especially from the form of Jim Lee's art which is clearly the inspiration here. A lot of the references I've read on here to Dare Devil's horns in previous articles is mostly imaginative having prior knowledge that Ben Affleck had once played the Marvel character. If this was any other actor, the reference to the ears resembling Dare Devil would not have even been a thought. Personally, I've always favored the shorter ears. Tactically they aren't aren't in the way and they make more sense by way of the shape of the head. They blend more to the shadow and draw less attention from the shade. Eh, just a thought...
Part of me wishes that there was enough footage laying around that they could cut a special edition version of Superman Lives for the fans similar to how they did the Donner version of Superman II. Ah, can't help but wonder how this would have turned out. It would have been the original Dawn of Justice. Imagine, Michael Keaton as Batman and Nicholas Cage as Superman sharing the screen even if it was only a cameo. I would've liked to have seen them feed off one another. All in all, can't wait to see this doc*mentary.

Best looking Batman thus far. I love this iteration of the character's look.

@ObiWanShinobi I actually like Andrew's portrayal of Peter Parker better. He quirky and awkward on the cusp of being a nerd and still borderline geek. I felt Tobey's portrayal of Peter was a bit more whiny and crybaby-ish which kind of took me out of it. In all, I think all the elements are there for the characters of The Amazing Spider-Man series but the story needs to come together more tightly. I liked the campy appeal of the original film although I wasn't a true fan of that series. I want with all my heart to like this series but it's got a lot of cleaning up to do.
@Brizzy That I do agree on. Andrew Garfield is THE definitive Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

I'd love a movie about Hannibal. He's one of my favorite historical figures.
@ObiWanShinobi That's how I felt when I saw it. In that instant they became more recognizable than previous trailers had shown.
@ObiWanShinobi Yes, I have seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It wasn't so much that it was a bad film...it really wasn't. It was just underdeveloped in a lot of areas. The focus being so much on the love story between Peter and Gwen that it left little room to truly develop the friendship between Peter and Harry to believe these two have been buds even from a lifetime ago between them. Max/Electro, suffered in that area as well. It felt like at times they were there purely to create action sequences. Especially the Green Goblin, to move us along to Gwen's death. But for the most part, the acting was good. Her death was a tragedy that struck you when you watched it. And the story, where it focused, was solid. It was the other areas where it lacked that seemed to outweigh what was truly good about it.
