The Question of Bruce Wayne

Dear Zack Snyder, Chris Nolan, and Warner Brothers,

Hi! You don’t know me personally but you do know people like me and I know you think we are hard to please because we are such HUGE fans and well let’s just be honest here we’re nerds but hey I’m ok with it! I would like to give you my list of people I think should play the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Batman vs Superman movie coming out in 2015: 

10. Cillian Murphy

Ok go with me on this one… Cillian Murphy was one of Chris Nolan’s original choices for the role in 2005 before he cast Christian Bale, he liked him so much that he cast him as Scarecrow but I think it’s time we give him a shot!

9. David Boreanaz

David Boreanaz was one of my personal choices to play the role back when they announced the reboot. I like him because he’s tall, looks good, and can do action really really well. Also, he’s a Buffy and Angel alum as well as the following he has from “Bones” so he could bring all new nerds to the franchise. 

8. Joshua Jackson

Ok so I know this is a little off the wall but he was also one of the contenders for the role back in 2005 and he also has quite the nerd following thanks to “Fringe” and he’s put enough distance between himself and “Dawson’s Creek” to actually be taken seriously in the role unlike Katie Holmes (hint hint Chris Nolan). Side note: guys please please get negotiations underway before J.J. Abrams (the creator of “Fringe”) snatches him up for the next “Star Trek” or “Star Wars”!

7. Ryan Gosling

Now I know what ya’ll are thinking but hear (or read me out)! He is a critical darling! If you haven’t seen “Drive” watch it and be amazed! I would be remiss and flat out lying if I said that part of the reason isn’t because he’s hot but he is also an amazing actor so he should be on this list. 

6. Andrew Lincoln

There has been talk of making Bruce Wayne older in this movie and I think Andrew Lincoln would play it well. He is another actor with a built in fanbase so it would be nerd porn. Also he could bring a little of Rick Grimes grittiness to Gotham City.

5. Matt Bomer

Come on guys don’t lie this guy looks like Bruce Wayne!! He’s also an excellent actor and it would be interesting to watch him in a leading role.

4. Bradley Cooper

Image

His eyes are amazing and if you’ve seen “Silver Linings Playbook” you know he can play a tortured soul very well. He’s also good with action as seen in (the very underrated) “The A-Team” so I think he would be an interesting choice to play Batman.

3. Joe Manganiello

 “Magic Mike” aside this man was built to play Batman. He’s also another person who could play the older Bruce Wayne well.

2. Joseph Gordon-Levitt Image

I would love to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this role only for continuity from the Dark Knight Trilogy, which, yes, I’m told is supposed to be seperate from any future Batman movies; but hey a girl can dream right?!

Continuity leads me to my #1… 

Christian Bale!

Image

Please, please, please I am begging you give him anything he wants to get him to come back! Christian Bale became Batman! I don’t care if he asks for 3 trailers, a tiger, and a cake on Wednesdays GIVE IT TO HIM! He made the world forget about rubber suits with nipples and “chicks dig the car” and made Batman the tortured hero we deserved and we deserve to have our faith rewarded! 

And that is who I think should play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Batman vs Superman movie. If anyone has any they’d like to add please feel free to add them!

And one last message to Zack Snyder, Chris Nolan (not so much you you’re a genius), and Warner Brothers PLEASE DEAR JESUS DON’T FUCK THIS UP!

 

Please Wipe Up the Drool….

So just to catch you all up I was behind by 3 blogs because I wasn’t ready to write about my relationship with my parents so now to get to the next blog entry which is considerably more fun; so here are the five male celebrities (in no particular order) I find absolutely attractive (read: sexy).

1. Christian Bale
Dark Knight Rises

56318DF1F2FDEF6B9C102FB242FFCD

Ok so he’s Batman, what else can I say? I will admit to having a crush on him since I saw him singing and dancing in “Newsies” in the 90’s. He’s tall gorgeous and has an accent, what’s not attractive about that?!

2. David Tennant

“He’s like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And… he’s wonderful.
He has saved your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never stops. He never stays. He never asks to be thanked.” He is and always will be The Doctor.

3. Daniel Craig

So would love to apologize for all of the guys on my list so far being British but I’m really not sorry about that at all. I will be the first to admit that I wasn’t a fan of the change from Pierce Brosnan to Daniel Craig in the James Bond franchise but once I saw “Casino Royale” (and then subsequently 10 times after that) I knew that had made the right choice.

4. Chris Evans

??????????????????????????????????

If my first American on the list is going to be anyone it should be Captain America, right?

5. Leonardo DiCaprio

And, really, what’s more American then the story of an adorable child star becoming a very sexy leading man?! And if you don’t believe me watch “The Departed”, “Gangs of New York”, or “Inception” and get back to me.

Bonus:

6. Idris Elba

And now back to the gorgeous British men! My friend Dorian and I will watch any of his movies just to drool over him! We both loved “Takers” when he got to speak with his beautiful English accent!

7. Johnny Depp
001

Johnny-Depp-johnny-depp-32659258-3450-4149

He’s just beautiful, what else can I say?

8. George Clooney

George Clooney is like a Channel suit he’ll never go out of style or not be sexy!

9. Adam Levine

And that’s not just 5 but 10 of the guys I totally drool over!! Now clean up the drool and go back to your lives!

Music Appreciation by Katy

Unlike my all too short blog on education which was actually yesterday’s topic I’ll move on to today’s topic which is considerably easier.

So here I go, I’m putting my music player on shuffle right now…. first 10 songs…. and go!

1. “The One That Got Away” by Katy Perry- I’m so not even ashamed to admit I like Katy Perry! Her music is always pretty fun!

2. “My Life” by Robin Thicke- I fell in love with this song when I saw “Despicable Me”. If you haven’t seen “Despicable Me” than shame on you! Go watch it now and enjoy the antics of the Minions.

3. “Late to the Theater” by Henry Jackman- this is from the “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” soundtrack. Great movie! Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” doesn’t even cover the vampire hunting he did, and his movie is all the worse for it (sarcasm guys in case y’all didn’t catch that).

4. “He’s a Tramp” from “Lady and the Tramp”- this just reminds me of my childhood and watching Disney movies.

5. “Highway to the Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins- “Top Gun” is one of my all-time favorite movies so naturally this soundtrack is a must for me.

6. “Swing Swing” by The All-American Rejects- This song is amazing!! Such a great poppy break-up song that is so much fun to sing at the top of your lungs!

7. “The Caster Library” by Thenewno2- while I thought the movie wasn’t faithful to the book at all “The Beautiful Creatures” movie soundtrack is amazingly creepy and haunting.

8. “Cuts Like a Knife’ by Bryan Adams- how can you not love Bryan Adams?!

9. “Always” by Bon Jovi- I’ve had a crush on Jon Bon Jovi for soooooo long!!

10. “Always” by U2- I promise I did put it on shuffle.

Bonus:

11. “Rockin’ Robin” by Michael Jackson- oh I wish my girl Dorian was here right now because she loves her MJ! Actually we both love our MJ, we saw “This is It” 3 times in the theater!

12. “Polly Come Home” by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss- this song is amazing! So beautiful and haunting, oh and Robert Plant’s voice is still beautiful!

12. “Summertime” by the New Kids on the Block- I totally had a crush on Joey!

13. “Streets of Philadelphia” by Bruce Springsteen- this song is beautiful and sad just like the movie. If you haven’t seen it watch it and cry like I do every time.

14. “Go Your Own Way” by Lea Michelle (originally by Fleetwood Mac)- I have both versions of this song in my music collection but yes I’ll admit it I love the show “Glee”.

15. “Sometimes You Leave” by Carrie Underwood- I love this song and Carrie Underwood (I don’t want any judgment from any of you haters out there!).

16. “Santa Fe” from the “Newsies” soundtrack- Christian Bale (aka Batman) singing, how can anyone turn that down?!

17. “All Dressed Up in Love” by Jennifer Hudson- not one of my favorites but I do love the rest of the “Sex and the City” soundtrack that it’s on.

18. “I Wanna Rock” from the “Rock of Ages” movie soundtrack- as you can probably tell I love movie soundtracks.

19. “Pray for You” by Jaron and the Long Road to Love- this song is one of the best break-up songs ever!!!

20. “Love Potion No. 9” by The Clovers- I love this song!! I have a soft spot for 50’s and 60’s doo-wop.

21. “He Went to Paris” by Jimmy Buffett- I always get nostalgic listening to Jimmy Buffett.

22. “Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have With Her Clothes On” by Panic! at the Disco- this song is just so cool if you can get past the long title.

23. “Drops of Jupiter” by Train- this is just a sweet song that I can’t help but love.

24. “Strawberry Wine” by Deana Carter- this is such typical country song but I love it anyway.

25. “Home Life” by John Mayer- I’ll listen to pretty much anything John Mayer does.

26. “L-O-V-E” by Al Green- this song is a classic and always makes me so happy.

27. “What a Good Boy” by the Barenaked Ladies- the album comes from is one of the cd’s my mom used to play in the car all the time.

28. “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor- all I have to say is “At first I was afraid I was petrified…”

29. “Elbow Room” from “Schoolhouse Rock: America Rock”- I’m a history nerd, what else can I say.

30. “The Saints Are Coming” by U2 and Green Day- oh my god I love this song!!!! U2 is always epic and when they teamed up with Green Day they got even more epic!!

And there you have it my random playlist. I would have kept going but I already gave you 20 extra and I know you all have lives so I’ll leave it at 30. Enjoy and happy listening!!
