My favourite part of Captain America : The Winter Solider is when Steve Rogers, a World War II veteran, announces to everyone that SHIELD has been taken over by an evil Nazi cabal hellbent on world domination and without presenting them any evidence whatsoever, everyone just goes, “yeah, that makes sense; let’s burn this place down.”
Affleck’s Dark Knight is clearly continuing in the grand Batman tradition of refusing to kill even the most cruel and evil villains but apparently not objecting to installing high-powered machine guns and rocket launchers on all his vehicles.
I think everyone around the world is secretly hoping the Oscar Pistorius trial will end this way.
I’d also accept Pistorius standing up in court and shouting “diplomatic immunity!” before being shot in the head by Danny Glover who is inexplicably present in the courtroom.
