Director Quentin Tarantino recently did an interview with The Playlist where he talked about a whole slew of things including his favorite films, and an erstwhile defense of the Lone Ranger, but perhaps most interesting is that he said that "Batman is not a very interesting character."

Tarantino was also asked for his thoughts on Ben Affleck playing Batman in the "Man of Steel" sequel. "I have to admit that I don't really have an opinion," he said. "Why? Because Batman is not a very interesting character. For any actor. There is simply not much to play. I think Michael Keaton did it the best, and I wish good luck to Ben Affleck. But, you know who would have made a great Batman? Alec Baldwin in the '80s." source

Now, throughout the years, there had been a whole slew of Batman TV shows and movies with numerous storylines and a whole bunch of actors playing the superhero. And so for someone to say that Bruce Wayne just isn't interesting enough of a character, well, I might have to hear an explanation on that.

Unfortunately, that's as far as Tarantino went so I can't really tell what he means. We do know that he likes Michael Keaton's Batman and thinks Alec Baldwin would've made a great Dark Knight 20 years ago, and wishes Ben Affleck all the luck for playing the caped crusader in the Man of Steel sequel.

But what do you guys think? Do you think Batman is not a very interesting character?
