Not many people realize (I think) what goes in to making a movie. With producers, directors, actors, auditions, money, location and all the other technical aspects I don’t want to list (the reason so few people sit through the credits) there is now a huge market and it has become more of a business and less of an art form. But that isn’t what I was asked to share with you in this entry.
I was asked for an attack, or defense, of the current castings of Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne/Batman. If you know me you know that I don’t really assume or preconceive or move outside of neutral arguments very easily. If you don’t know me you’ll have to take my word for it (I don’t care either way). But know that I am trying really hard to keep opinions of influence and such out of this – trust me it’s difficult to do with my background.
With that bit of context: I am the White Rabbit to your Alice for the next few minutes and you had better believe I’m late.
…Try to keep up. (more…)
