New Actor To Replace Bale as Batman?

As a longtime fan of the Batman movies, I must say that Christian Bale has done a bangup job of creating a three dimensional, complex Batman/Bruce Wayne. He and Michael Keaton were both sublime in the franchise for totally different reasons. Michael Keaton offered a more mature, zen Batman, while Christian Bale...well, didn't. His Batman was straight ready to learn some judo and beat your ass like you bitch slapped his momma. Which I love! However, following his leaked rant on the set of Terminator: Salvation, there are whispers around town that Bale may be replaced by his Terminator co-star, Sam Worthington.
I'm sure that Worthington is a nice guy and all, but he's no Christian Bale. Besides, I am strongly (strongly) against replacing Bale simply because of his little hissy fit. I mean, after all we forgive our celebrities for and this is the straw that breaks the camel's back? Give me a fucking break! We reward celebs like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton for driving drunk (multiple times!), we look the other way when douchebags like Chris Brown and Tommy Lee beat their women, we combat multiple alligations of Michael Jackson diddling children with "oh but he's such a good dancer!", morons rally outside of courtrooms to set R Kelly free after he pissed on a teenage girl, we let O.J. get away with murder, we forgave Naomi Campbell for beating a bitch's ass like, 300 times, we give Bobby Brown and Mike Tyson a free pass for everything, and yet we are going to sentence Christian Bale to the guillotine because he went all agro on some dude's ass? I mean honestly and truely, our fucking priorities are wack.

Bale's an artist, goddammit! Fire in the belly good for art, not so good for the diplomatic corps. Diplomacy great for international relations, crap for friends and family.

So it goes.

" I mean honestly and truely, our fucking priorities are wack." Yes they truly are especially when MJ wasn't "diddling" with any children and was basically being taken advantage of by these families who tried to extort money from him and yet some people ate their shitty stories up so easily not realizing that adults are letting 12 or 13 year old kids fool them into buying into false allegations that nobody in their lives will ever have any proof of. You want to talk about "rewarding"? How about kim kardashian getting rewarded by E! with a reality show? When this woman has no actual talent and is only famous for having as Joel McHale says it best only famous for having a "big ass and a sex tape". And yet she gets all this respect cus she "looks good" and now has become the poster child for body image. When people like MJ etc. got famous the proper way and that is to work for it and to earn it which kim has done neither of. He has sold 750 million albums worldwide, Thriller ALONE has sold 104 million copies worldwide making it the biggest seeling album in music history and still going strong 27 years after it was released, has won 13 grammy awards, broke down the color barrier at MTV, Thriller video is considered to this day the best music video ever made by an artist and as the late great george carlin said it best "The greatest entertainer that has ever lived bar none". He's an unrivaled icon and sold out 50 concerts in 5 hours which is quite incredible for someone who hasn't had a hit single since the mid 90s. There really is no better dancer than him so you can have your MJ wannabes like Justin Timberlake and Usher. What exactly has kim kardashian done? Nothing. So if that isn't insulting I don't know what the hell is?
