Batman vs. Iron Man

I’m going to preface this post by saying I’m not a comic book guy.  I enjoy watching the super hero movies, but I don’t know all the history, etc.

A few weeks ago Ben Affleck was confirmed for the role of Batman in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” film. This seems odd. On one hand, you have Batman, who’s a regular person that has trained a lot, extremely athletic, intelligent, and has a bunch of fancy gadgets (because he’s filthy rich).  On the other side, you have someone from another planet who is basically indestructible except for a rare material that’s a bit hard to find. How is this even a contest? Is the “vs” like the Laff-A-Lympics? They’re not fighting directly against each other, but competing to get the fastest time on a race? Does Superman get extremely cocky and this is like a “Tortise and the Hare” film?  Batman just keeps pressing on? I have no clue.

What we need is to have someone fight against Batman that’s a little more equal. Let’s see, extremely intelligent, bunch of gadgets because they’re filthy rich…..Oh, that sounds just like Tony Stark (aka Iron Man). So that’s the movie I want to see.  Batman vs. Iron Man.  And I don’t want the recent Batman.  Not even Val Kilmer, or George Clooney, or Michael Keaton.  I want Adam West Batman. You know, the Batman that won’t throw a bomb if it might hit some baby ducks? And yes, I want the Robert Downey Jr. version of Tony Stark.
