"To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.."
(Elbert Hubbard)


I studied Physics at the University of Vienna, but I'm interested in all natural sciences.

Since I don't believe in life after death I try to explore and learn as much as I can about this world.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Yes, I get that, but the OP's question is: "Why didn't they cast Bale as Batman again?" And to me the answer isn't 'Because they couldn't get him to reprise his role' (as far as I know he wasn't even offered the role), but because the upcoming Batman is not supposed to be Bale's Batman.

@AndrewMartin - My point is that the reason why a different actor will be playing Batman is because it's a different iteration. And this new iteration didn't come about because Bale was not interested in reprising the character, but because Nolan and Goyer made a creative decision to not have the TDK trilogy be part of the upcoming shared universe .

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - In 2007/08 Warner Bros. came very close to producing a 'Justice League' film. There was a script, a director and a cast, with Armie Hammer as a new Batman. - I don't think this reboot has anything to do with Bale not wanting to reprise his role. Nolan and Goyer simply never intended for the Dark Knight trilogy to be part of a shared universe.

comment Why did it take a rocket to lift off the Earth but just shuttles to lift off the other planets?
As a side note, escape velocity is only relevant for 'ballistic' trajectories, i.e. if you want to throw something off the earth. - It's possible to escape earth with much lower speeds. Elevators defy earth's gravity without being very fast. Now imagine an elevator that goes all the way up into space. If there is continuous "thrust", reaching escape velocity isn't important. - Now, who knows how the engines on those Landers and Rangers work?

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Sure, if Bale had lobbied for role they probably would have tried to come up with explanations how superpowered heroes (Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman,...) could have existed in that trilogy's universe, but my point is that 'Man of Steel' and the subsequent DC movies weren't conceived as a continuation of Nolan's trilogy. So I'd say the casting of another actor isn't due to Bale's refusal, but because the upcoming movies are not connected to Nolan's trilogy.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Nolan's Batman wasn't designed to live in a universe where other superheroes exist: ' I don’t think our Batman, our Gotham, lends itself to that kind of cross-fertilization'. - And David Goyer, who wrote "Man of Steel" and co-wrote the Batman trilogy also said that the Superman reboot does not exist in the same universe as the Nolan's Batman.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
The upcoming DC movies are not connected to Nolan's Batman trilogy, so it seems perfectly normal to not cast Bale as Batman again. - Just like casting Ezra Miller as the Flash makes it clear that the TV-verse (which stars Grant Gustin as the Flash) is seperate from the movie-verse. (Unlike e.g. Marvels 'Agents of SHIELD')

comment Why does Ronan want to destroy this planet/race?
@JohnSmithOptional - You make it sound like Ronan is merely doing his job, but I'm not sure genocide is 'normal' for an Accuser. - He was shown collaborating with Thanos, but not with the Kree government, which is why I think some reviewers say he went rogue.

comment Why does Ronan want to destroy this planet/race?
@JohnSmithOptional - Can you explain what sources you used? AFAIK there never was a Kree-Xandar war in the comics, so it's possible the cinematic version of the Kree might differ from the comic version (e.g. was Ronan ever portrait as a genocidal maniac in the comics?). - And are you saying the Ronan didn't actually go 'rogue', but that his actions were sanctioned by the Kree empire?

comment How were the others able to handle the power of the stone?
...able to handle it because of his nature - I'm not sure Peter actually could. His face did start to disintegrate until the others joined in.

Vampires having a problem with "Running water" is a trope that some stories use.

comment Why Disney/Marvel doesn't have rights for Badoon?
Trivia: The film rights to the Fantastic Four were actually sold in 1986, and to keep the rights the production company made a low-budget movie in 1992/1993 which was never officially released. - One can read more about it here

comment Why Disney/Marvel doesn't have rights for Badoon?
'It's a little complicated' because e.g. even though Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are Magneto's children, they also, at one point, join the Avengers.

Remember, during the Collector's explanation of what the Infinity Stones are he mentions "a group was able to share the energy" (although they were eventually destroyed).

comment Why was Ronan/Thanos not interested in the other Infinity Stone in possession of The Collector?
The movie itself says '1988' at the beginning, and after the opening credits it says '26 years' later. - Plus, there is an official prequel comic in which the Collector, after receiving the Aether, hires Gamora (Zoe Saldana's character) to get the Orb for him.

comment Why was Ronan/Thanos not interested in the other Infinity Stone in possession of The Collector?
But this leads to another question: if Thanos knows the Collector has the 'Aether', why hasn't he gone after him? Why not capture the Collector and force him to hand it over? - Or maybe Thanos knows where the Collector keeps the 'Aether' and has already made plans to get it.

According to the post-credit scene of The Avengers Thanos does know about the Tesseract.

comment Is this famous Michael Jackson dance move inspired by The Wizard of Oz (1939)?
I wouldn't be surprised if MJ was actually inspired by Charlie Chaplin, who did "The Lean" in A Day's Pleasure (1919). - MJ was known to be a big fan of Charlie Chaplin.
