hmm... that's an awesome poster, although cam gigandet as a more youthful black-mask kind of ruins the fact that sionis is a broken, twisted version of batman, and black mask's origin... also, black mask's whole habit is that his personality is that of a businessman, not matter how much sadistic he is. maybe Benicio Del-Toro, Daniel Day-Lewis or Liev Schreiber?
Yes, this is the turning point in the life of Batman, he's haunted by the memory of Gyllenhaal's character. The police is behind him and Jim Gordon's family is being attacked by Black Mask and Batman can not do anything to help him.
Cam Gigandet is my very personal adaptation of Black Mask. A very talented young man that went wrong. The fate of this young Black Mask paves the way for Dick Greyson.
The attack on Jim Gordon's family makes his daughter fight for the first time and his defeat and subsequent decision to never lose a battle again prepare her for the future as Batgirl.
In many fan forums show to the french actor Vincent Cassell as a possible Black Mask, but I want someone much younger, a boy with potential that went wrong, paving the way in Batman mind for Dick Greyson.
The appearance of the Italian mafia seems trite, this guy is something new. More young and ruthless, this guy eats a italian wiseguy for breakfast, he doesn't need a tailored suit to gain respect. He gets to the top because there's nobody left alive to stop it and Batman is his way.
In his first scene, he sends chunks of the body of Sal Maroni (Eric Roberts character) to all the crime bosses and the head to Jim Gordon.
