Stallone as Batman?

Stallone as Batman?
Caffeinated Clint

A few weeks back graphic novelist Frank Miller, author of “The Dark Knight Returns”, mentioned he’d like to see his ‘decrepit Batman’ tale get the big screen treatment one day. And while it is only a pipe dream of his – ya never know though, Batman is pretty darn hot right now – the speculation as to who would get to play Batman-in-retirement has already started up.

Many seem to favour Clint Eastwood as the ripened superhero – and when a film version of ‘’The Dark Knight Returns” was rumoured about five years ago, Eastwood was tipped to take the role; not sure whether that was just BS or there was actually progress on a film – but Miller has another idea…. One that just led to Ab King having to change from his Rambo undies into his Rocky boxers.

Sylvester Stallone.

‘’Just that mouth of his, the scowl and the way it would look in a mask,” Miller told a reporter from The LA Times. “I loved ‘Rocky Balboa.’ This wounded warrior, that’s what Batman is in ‘Dark Knight Returns.’ ”

Hmm. Don’t see it myself – – if anything, I’m having nightmarish flashbacks of “Judge Dredd”.

But again, it’s nothing more than a suggestion of Frank’s… nobody need to cook up a photoshopped poster of “Dark Knight Returns” with Stallone’s name above the title just yet.
