But I thought Batgirl was a black actress in this? If JK Simmons is playing Commissioner Gordon in this why is Barbara black?

I told you she was Latin. Dominican, more accurately.

I mean, it's the same thing, more or less.

Jeeze... maybe the Ben Affleck Batman really will continue on in the "DCEU." If they were looking for a time to recast Gordon and create some distance from the Ben Affleck Batman, it'd be now.

Simmons is perfect for the role but has been given very little to do so far, so I'd love to see him back in any context.

I loved Gary Oldman but Simmons could end up being even better IF he actually got anything to do. He's one of those castings where you see it and are like, "Holy sh*t, how did nobody think of that before?"

And with all their talk about pushing the "Multiverse" angle in their movies and TV shows, if WB doesn't do SOMETHING with Affleck's Batman, Cavill's Superman, etc., it proves that they're just making decisions out of pure spite towards Snyder and the people who actually liked what he did. Even people who weren't in love with his style still loved his cast. There's no reason why those versions of the characters CAN'T continue on in some form, other than WB being like "F*ck that guy and everything he worked on." Which is childish.

Unfortunately everyone has only been able to judge Affleck through ensemble flicks. But still, the best ten minutes of Batman or so ever put to film has still got to be the DoJ warehouse scene.

I'd be down for an Affleck solo flick. I can't believe they just keep using him for these weird supporting character appearances. Everyone is going to age out by the time we get some great solo movies....

Cavill still looks great, but pull up a picture of him from MOS and you suddenly realize how long it's really been....
