    Can he direct an action flick? I just hope it’s good. Please don’t ruin Batman for us. his batman role in Sups v Bats was actually decent. Just keep a commanding presence on the screen. Remember Batman is without powers, yet a founding member of the JL and everyone respects the hell out of him, even the hero’s with amazing powers know not to mess with him.
