How good is the Image comics app and website? Frankly, I haven't seen anything beat Comixology when it comes to ease of use and quality HD pictures.

Not a huge fan of villains turning good. Can't recall an example where it worked particularly well. This applies to Catwoman too.
I'm not a big stickler about movies following comic book canon. Especially when comic books themselves typically do an awful job of following their own canon.
That being said, the Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was an abomination. An complete bastardization of the character.
Anyone familiar with Superman comics already knows that Batman villains have held their own against the Man of Steel, most notably Joker. One can certainly say it's jobbing, but that happens a lot to characters in Superman's power bracket.
Great recap. I don't think I enjoyed the run as much as you, but I agree that Joe Kelly's take on the character is an essential read for anyone interested in Deadpool.
Frankly, I'll be surprised if it's that good. I just can't see Emma Stone carrying this franchise like she did the last movie. Eventually people are going to realize she's the only competent one on the set.
There are stories popping up around the net that WB has offered Bale $50 million to return to the cape and cowl. Apparently they're prepared to make him the RDJ of their universe.
If these rumors were actually true (please god, please) and Bale accepted, I would...
1) Squeal like a little girl
2) Hop up and down for joy until collapsing from exhaustion
3) Hug random strangers
Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass that Batman's comic continuity is utterly quashed in the movie universe. Bringing Bale back as Batman in MoS 2 and future Justice League installments would be a huge shot in the arm for legitimizing the rest of WB's superheroes. Plus, it's unlikely Bale would agree to do further solo movies without Nolan. So that would actually prevent WB from falling back to the "solo Batman formula" when something like Aquaman inevitably underperforms. All of a sudden, films like Flash, Wonder Woman, and Nightwing (I'm looking at you, Joseph Gordon Levgitt) become an actual reality.
If it's a 40-something year old guy like some of the rumors are saying, I'd say go with Josh Halloway. He'd be my first choice for a few reasons.
1) He's relatively unknown, so it will make it easier to accept him as the face of Batman.
2) The guy can act. He made a serious name for himself in LOST and has scored some Hollywood supporting appearances, including Mission Impossible 4.
3) He's one of the few actors that I can see being both Batman and Bruce Wayne. Josh Brolin's name has been thrown around a lot. As Batman I can see it, but as Bruce, he would come off looking like a grandpa. We've also heard Jake Gyllenhaal who would make a great Bruce, but c'mon, would that really be a Batman to inspire fear?
4) He's got the scowl down pat.
5) Because Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale aren't available (apparently).
