OK, but Bruce and Barry though…
Despite the fact that Bruce was an ass to almost everyone else (Diana should have kicked his ass harder during that one scene, if those of you who have seen it know what I mean…), I have to admit that he was more…I dunno if “gentle” is the word I’m looking for, but let’s go with that for now–gentle toward Barry.
I mean, here is a kid that just, out of the blue, got recruited to save the world, and it is obvious he is overwhelmed during that first mission where they are saving those people. He starts rambling a bit, and you know what Bruce says?
“Just save one.”
He just basically told this kid “I see potential in you, but because you’re kind of freaking out, I’m gonna tell you to take it one step at a time, and you’ll be OK.”
THAT’S the Bruce I know and adore. The one who lets you eat pizza in his multi-million dollar car. The one who says “Go to the pantry” when you’re hungry. The one who calms you down when you’re rambling and sees your potential and REMINDS you of that potential.
I dunno. Maybe I’m ranting. It’s late. I’m tired. I’m hungry. I just barely saw the movie. I’m gonna go eat.
