I really wouldn't mind Jennifer Lawrence as Catwoman.

Who would you like to see play the new Joker?

Not a fan of this, but then again I'm not a big Affleck fan. You have to be quite diverse to play Batman because Bruce Wayne/Batman are polar opposites. He might be able to pull off the smooth playboy persona of Bruce Wayne. However, I really don't think he has the screen presence to represent the intensity to Batman

I read another suggestion on another forum was Guy Pierce. I think he would have made a great Batman.

Guy Peirce is too much like Val Kilmer, who was a flop

Zachary Quinto would have made a great Batman.

Even though he's gay when he turns on that sinister, vengeful voice it's intense and menacing (see American Horror Story: Asylum). And, his normal Bruce Wayne self is suave and debonair... very fitting for a man who's heir to a fortune.

It really should've been Josh Brolin. Oh well.

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.
