Brolin is the perfect fit if they are going for an older, more hardened Batman. Affleck is too soft on screen to be a Dark Knight people take seriously. Who isn't gonna subconsciously think "lol Affleck is the badass Batman?" while watching the movie. Just don't see it.

Affleck could work if there was a much more competent director on the set than Zach Snyder.

But Snyder is really only good for action and epic scaled shots. I don't think he develops characters well, which is what you need when you have Batman involved. Watchmen's characters worked because they had a strong basis (the original graphic novel) to follow and even then, that movie fell a little flat at times.

Batman isn't that difficult a role. Typical rich, playboy character... then he gets dressed up in an awesome bat-suit with sick ass weapons and vehicles. Probably more than a dozen current actors that could pull it off; including Affleck.

I know right. I'm a fan of Batman (I read the comics) and I honestly could give no fvcks if Affleck is Batman or not. I am more concerned with who's writing it and the director.

Like does people think Clooney was that bad of a BAtman or did the writing and the one directing the movie just sucked horribly? BAtsuit with Nipples? Really? Heck they lost me with the scene where they showed BAtman's butt.

I'l bet that if you replace Bale with Clooney the Batman Begins movies could work. The thing about Batman is that he could be anyone.

I think this can actually work very, very well. Affleck is going to make a terrific and seasoned Bruce Wayne. Might be the best Bruce Wayne ever in fact. Ben Affleck is a very serious and hardworking director, who has made some amazing films in the past few years. I'm sure he's going to take this very cautiously and deliver a great performance.

If Bryan Cranston is Lex Luther than Heath Ledger might have some competition as the greatest villain ever.

Forget Joker and Catwoman. I want to see more of Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp would be perfect for this part), Riddler or even Robin.

3 points:

1 Bale didnt want to do the film, so should they have canceled the film?

2. You could do worse than affleck

3. The quality of Superhero films depends on the quality of the villains more than the hero

No, Superman and the rest of the JL don't fit with the NolanVerse anyway. It's best to have kept the films separate.

1. Fvck no.

2. It'd be hard to do better. You can't give anyone the role who hasn't already starred in a $100mil box-office.

3. Especially now, when villains and anti-hero's are all the rage.

I don't have a problem with Affleck. He is a decent enough actor. Christian Bale wasn't even great in his role as Batman. Playing Batman is the easy part. You're a billionaire disguised as a superhero, how difficult is that? What makes the movie good is the villain/story. Just look at the last two movies.

The director/writer of Daredevil has been involved with these movies: Jack Frost, Ghost Rider, Grumpy Old Men, Grumpier Old Men, Big Bully, and Elecktra. That is literally his resume. No wonder that movie was awful.

George Clooney should have made a better batman than he was. He has the looked and how difficult is it to do the voice Bale used when suited up. I'm not trying to knock Christian Bale as an actor because he is a good actor but people act like he was phenomenal when really to me he was just average. The characters of Bane and the Joker are really what stood out and Nolan directing is what made the last three movies great.
