In the 1990’s, I grew up watching X-Men: The Animated Series. I ran around my parents’ living room, emulating my favorite character, Wolverine, as I immersed myself into the colorful world of these individuals and their adventures. Although I was very young, the show taught me that it was okay to be different and we should accept others, no matter the contrasts between myself and them. I never thought I’d see this team – this family – of heroes on the big screen.
In 2000, that – and the superhero genre – were changed forever.
Over the years, these actors have answered the call of the Bat Signal to portray Gotham’s Caped Crusader in live-action films. Now another name is added to the list: Robert Pattinson has officially been cast in director Matt Reeves’ forthcoming superhero reboot, The Batman!
There is no limit to the praise that can be given to The Dark Knight Trilogy. Out of the three, it goes without saying that The Dark Knight is the best film. In honor of the film’s 10th anniversary, I decided to revisit Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece to see if I felt any differently about the film after time has passed since my last viewing, possibly come up with anything new. I learned one thing: I had forgotten how excellent this movie is.
