'Bout time. Hopefully this means its arrival on Netflix won't be too far behind.

I found Smith's and Meltzer's runs to be largely unimpressive. They both did some nice character bits (particularly with Connor and Mia) but I felt they didn't hold up well structurally. And while I liked the One Year Later stuff, I think the run by Winick and Hester is one of the character's high points.

I really like Pepe Larraz's work, reminds me of early Carlos Pacheco and Olivier Coipel.

I completely agree. The name drops and cameos felt forced. Just introduce them slowly, like Arrow or Smallville. We don't need every villain in 45 minutes.

One of the major complaints about Smallville early on was that it took too long to start integrating more characters and concepts from the comics.

Catwoman has the hots for a young Bruce Wayne?

Shouldn't Selina be younger?

One of Batmans main love interests will be an old hag.

The actor who plays Bruce is 13. The actress whom plays Selina is 14.

It was okay. I probably would have enjoyed it more if i hadn't seen about 95% of it in the preview clips. I honestly didn't think I'd watched that many of them, but If there was as much as 15 minutes of footage I hadn't already seen it was just barely.

When i first looked at the Elektra cover, I thought those red masses strewn about were the ninjas' hearts.

I really like that costume design for Dagger.

@laflux: Agreed, plus that movie is sooo old like over 10 years ago he made that. I think it's silly to say "he sucked in DD so he'll suck as Batman" flawed logic.

The fact that Affleck sucked in Daredevil doesn't necessarily mean he'll suck in Dawn of Justice. It is, however, a perfectly legit reason to have some degree of skepticism regarding how he'll do in DOJ. Now, is it possible that his performance will be so good that it will negate that skepticism? Sure. But we won't know that until it happens. Until then, it's quite reasonable for people to use what they know of the past to form a speculative opinion of the future, as long as they do so understanding that's all it is--speculation--and that it should be open/subject to revision as more facts present themselves. But we aren't at the "fact" stage yet.

@frozen: DD was a bad film overall. No need to just blame Ben Affleck

No need to blame him for the film overall, but we can blame him for his lousy performance as Daredevil, just as we can give him some credit for doing a pretty nice job playing Matt Murdock.
