Will Smith doesn't have the range as an actor to be any character other than the same Will Smith character he always is. Why does everything have to be the same? We've been getting stories with these characters for 50+ years. Don't you realize that at one point there was no Red Hood? Jason Todd was just a good guy. At some point a writer decided to "completely change the characters motives". This isn't really about whether the theory is true at this point. You would just lose your mind if a writer did something completely new in these Batman movies. This is a new telling of Batman- how can you even know what Jason Todd's motives are in this version?
