hey how did u like/ what did u think bruce in justice league. i loved how this bruce was so awkward trying make friends as his actual person and as a secret identity which is the only way he known how to act around people other than alfred and minimum 1 robin for years of his life. you have any thots,hopes, aspirations for that bat fucko. i always love when u talk about him
OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY AN EXCUSE TO TALK ABOUT MY BOY OH BOY YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE
- i enjoyed seeing him joking around - made me feel happy, wholesome. i especially enjoyed seeing him smile, which made me happier, wholesomier. it does feel like there’s been a definitive, powerful change in his life, and by god do i respect that.
- his vindication in saving the world and needing to bring hope (designation: superman) back to it…….. [aquaman voice] MY MAN
- he is awkward! the bruce we’re following is far more isolated than other bruces have been - snyder’s ballparked jason’s death at being ten years ago, meaning it’s likely been almost a decade since bruce has had meaningful interaction outside of alfred. maybe selina. possibly dick. that’s maximum three people, one of which he’s definitely on glacial terms with, another he grows to be on glacial terms with (alfred), and another who has a grab-bag of commitment issues of her own and probably made herself scarce before bruce started cooking up a plot to murder superman, which would be over two years ago at this point. basically, people? what are they
- his humanity. the scene where diana pops his shoulder back into place is so raw, so powerful, and when she says, “you can’t do this forever,” and he says, “i can barely do it now,” it just underscores the fact that in these movies, batman is the representative of humanity. in batman v. superman (note: it’s v, as in a court case) batman literally puts superman on trial, like he’s the district attorney of mankind, and superman is the defendant. except it’s not a fair trial, because batman is the prosecution, the judge, the jury, and the executioner - because batman’s terrified out of his mind, just like everyone else, of what he doesn’t understand. and then we come to JL, which follows up on this thread: batman is just a man. he makes mistakes; he gets injured; he self-medicates for the pain, and there’s going to be a day where he won’t be able to do this anymore. but the important thing is? not for a second does any of that stop him. now THAT’S the batman i know
- which brings me to my next point: the batman of BvS was going to hunt superman down or die trying, because that batman lived in a world where he was certain that the light would never come again. hope was so dangerous to have, he had to spear it through the throat - but in JL? he’ll spear himself in the throat to bring it back. bruce is still trigger-happy in JL - each plan he comes up with in the movie involves him dying in some fashion - but maybe it’s not because he’s ready for everything to just be over. maybe it’s because he’s found something that is so important to him, to the league, to the world, that it’s worth dying for.
- but while batman can’t carry away a building full of people, and he can’t even save a carload, but he can save one person. and every single person matters, from the little girl sobbing in the wreckage to superman himself. he can get martha kent her house back, he can get barry a foot in the door, he can get the league a place to meet so they can save the world - he can do ten, twenty, forty, a hundred little things to save as many people as were in the building superman carried. he doesn’t need to be a god to run with the justice league - he just needs to save one person at a time, because every single life matters.
- because if every single life had mattered to joe chill, or the joker, how much better would the world he’s living in be?
- I GOT RAMBLY AND EMOTIONAL IGNORE THIS POST
- so someone on discord made this to describe me and i’d like to use it here
- because it’s very accurate as to how i feel
