Hero Blend #83: Should Batman Kill People In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice?
When most people think of Batman, they think of a hero who a) doesnít use guns, and b) doesnít kill people. This has not only been a big thing in the comics for decades and decades, but it was also a very important part of the character in Christopher Nolanís Dark Knight trilogy. Itís for this reason that a lot of people have been up in arms this week about the fact that Ben Affleckís Batman may be killing people in Zack Snyderís Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Earlier this week, Empire dropped an interesting quote from producer Charles Roven, who seemed to suggest that the latest live-action version of Batman may be pro-capital justice via vigilante action. Said Roven,
Batman is not giving people a chance... He is more than a vigilante. He has become not only the cop, if you will, he has also become the jury and executioner.
Does this mean that the Caped Crusader will be taking lives in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Joining me to talk about that very question on this week's Hero Blend, as well as whether or not thatís okay, is CinemaBlendís Sean OíConnell, who has some great thoughts on the matter. Enjoy the show!
