I think I will wait to make an opinion until After I watch the movie. Otherwise, I would look just like a negative tool who thinks I am special with my elitist bad self without the realization my opinion really doesn't matter. Can you tell I am a little tired of how people on the internet seem come out of the gate always negative, rarely positive. Reminds me when all those elitist princesses where whining about Heath Ledger being cast as the Joker. Really don't know how Affleck will do? Have to wait and see.
So far CB has been the best one (in MY opinion)... Michael Keaton was okay.. but VK, and who was that other one?? didn't really impress me none... I just don't see it. I guess he was okay as the Daredevil, but that movie didn't move me either..
So, here's an interesting question. In Man of Steel they established that it was the exposure to Krypton's atmosphere and lighting on board Zod's ship that weakened Superman, that it was the cutting him off from the light of the Sun and Earth's atmosphere that caused his weakness, not exposure to "kryptonite". This of course was a new take on Superman's weakness, but one that that actually sort of makes sense. But in all the Batman vs. Superman confrontations I've come across, Batman only ever stands a chance of defeating Superman by pulling out a large chunk of kryptonite, which was always a handy, small, and portable method of disabling Supes, and was something Bruce Wayne could afford. How are they going to get around this, or will they be forced to go back on what they've tried to establish in Man of Steel? Or is Batman going to lure him into some sort of giant lead compression chamber filled with whatever gas mixture Krypton had as an atmosphere?
Honestly Bruce Wayne was never the real strong point of any batman movie, it has always been the villain and the supporting characters that have really sold me on them.
So in all honesty I really don't see anything wrong with Ben. He's pretty much done batman with Daredevil and his own part in that movie was the last thing wrong with it. Accept for the random fight in the playground scene. That was hilariously retarded.
I vote 'Yeah'. He has the look to pull it off and the acting chops to do it justice. Look at him in 'The Town'. He most certainly can pull off Batman and the Bruce Wayne persona. Check out this clip and decide for yourself; www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcXt9a…
I think this is good casting and that he's going to surprise a lot of people. He's been in some flops, sure, but I think he is a very good actor and will make a great Batman. Of course, "I've been wrong before..." I'm also hopeful that this means he'll direct the next few solo Batman films as well.
I think it's really easy to forget that Affleck can do serious roles with genuine pain behind them. On the other hand, his usual "I'm a cocky douche" role is pretty overbearing, and if I see it even once, I'm gonna throw shit.
He plays a great jerk and or A-hole so that's great for Batman. Then you have him in Hollywoodland, The Town, and Argo. He did great, the last two he directed himself but that may be why he's Batman, since the rumor is he will direct Justice League and that may bench Zack Snyder. Which I wouldn't shed a tear over.
Yeah well, nothing can be done about it. Hollywood's always gonna pull that type of shit out of their ass. I don't watch Superman movies, but if Affleck continues playing the role in future Batman flicks, fuck that. It's like a huge step back to when Kilmer played Batman. Clooney.... I won't even go there.
