Leonardo DiCaprio Channels Batman In ‘J. Edgar’ Trailer

I’d never known that J. Edgar Hoover and Batman were so similar until I watched this trailer for J. Edgar. Both committed themselves to ridding society of gangsters and evil-doers. Both took the fight in both hands when the downtrodden weren’t strong enough to rise. And both enjoyed to play dress up.

Leonardo DiCaprio and a balding cap star as the FBI director in a story that spans several decades. The 987th film from celebrated director Clint Eastwood, J. Edgar will hit theaters just in time for awards season by opening wide on November 11th. Though it’s likely to face some strong competition from Darren Lynn Bousman‘s 11-11-11.
