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.

Forget the role of Batman whilst in costume, there is no better Bruce Wayne than Christian Bale.


Imagine Affleck as Wayne when we think about this upcoming movie.

Affleck can definitely play Bruce Wayne. It's Batman I don't think he can't play

Affleck doesn't bother me so much. He's talented enough to make the Wayne role his own.

People weren't all that excited about Heath Ledger getting the Joker role, if you'll remember. "OMG he does teen flicks and that gay cowboy movie, this is gonna be the worst movie in the history of history!!!"

No, what worries me is that Zack "I Wanna Be Michael Bay When I Grow Up" Snyder still gets to direct. The success/failure of this movie is going to rest entirely on him and I just don't think he's a clever or even talented enough director to make a character as complex and layered as Bruce Wayne work. Shit, Superman is about as one-dimensional of a character as you're going to find...and he needed video-game action sequences to make that work.

Yes, there's lots of debate. If Ledger was still alive consensus would be Nicholson>Ledger.

His voice was certainly terrible. People idolize actors so much. Bale is easily replaceable. Had Bale stared in Batman and Robin people would have said Bale was a terrible choice for Batman instead of blaming the director and writers.

I think Bale is a terrific actor but the role didn't require him to summon too much talent. It's a straight role and he played it fine, but so could a lesser actor IMO.

I liked the voice. It's a billionaire dressed as a superhero. Any guy in a attempt to change his voice would do the same thing. It almost made it more realistic.

He doesn't want anyone to recognize his voice because he is kind of famous. Seems reasonable.

Exactly.. He played it a bit over the top but Batman/Bruce Wayne is over the top.. he's a billionaire hell bent on revenge and seeks his revenge dressed up as a Bat-man. Him having a scratchy voice makes a lot of sense to me.. Could you imagine if someone heard him talk and be like.. you're Bruce Wayne aren't you.. If "Robin" can figure it out by a look he got from Bruce when he was a kid.. I don't think the disguised voice is a bad way to go.

A) The voice got progressively more cartoonish as the movies came out.

B) By Rises everyone and their grandmother seemed to know he was really Bruce Wayne so it didn't make any sense that he would use the voice with people who knew who he was.

Kevin Conroy did a great job of having a distinct Wayne and Batman voice without going way overboard like Chris. It was just Bale hamming it up as he has done for much of his career.
