The Rat Is The New X-Man

Hey guys, it's Donnie...

Yes, confirmed, official, definite, the truth, reality:

Brett Ratner has signed on the dotted line and will, in fact, be directing X3.

Perhaps this is the beginning of the passing of the torch. As Marvel's X-Men and Spiderman wind down with what will most likely be solid but flawed third films, (Spidey is still up in the air...) DC's Batman and Superman are shaping up to be spectacular. I hear that Batman Begins is utterly fantastic and unlike the last few Batman abominations, it is really fucking scary, and I'm all for that. I'm all for a Dark Knight who actually scares the crap out of criminals. That was, after all, the point of the Batsuit, to inspire fear in the heart of evil.

Man am I excited about that. I'm beginning to care less and less about X3, although the battle royale that will take place between X3 and Superman Returns next summer is likely to be one of the greatest film release rivalries in recent memory.
