As far as Ben...eh. He's just not inspiring/tough edged seeming. He's too baby faced/voice to be Batman.

They need someone that's skinnier, more naturally strong looking, with a strong jaw line.

Should be someone like Jon Hamm


I think he would have made an awesome superman if he was younger.

Are they running with the dark knight returns story line?

If they are, assfleck is not the biggest of my worries as Batman (especially in this story line, batman is supposed to be just old, grumpy and pissed off at this point)

Anyone remember THE JOKER is in this series as well?
Harvey Dent?
The mutants?!!
SELENA KYLE AS A 60 SOMETHING YEAR OLD?!(I don't really care about this one, like I really don't care shes in the plot for a whole 3 minutes, but its an insult to anne Hathaway to have someone play her role)

Who the hell is going to be cast to play these guys.

Not to mention how confused the casual movie goer is going to be when they find out Dent isn't really dead, Bale isn't Batman and someone is going to be constantly compared to heath ledger as the joker

ffs. stupid ****ing movie studios.

My first thought about all the complaints about Ben Affleck already:

I guess people will start taking back all their complaints about Christian Bale's Batman voice.

But, honestly, I'm not even going to begin to complain. If this was pre-2007 Ben Affleck I'd be bitching up a storm right now. But not only has he proven since then that he's a great director (Gone Baby Gone, Argo, The Town) but he's gotten a lot better as an actor.

He has the look of Bruce Wayne down exactly. I can picture him as Bruce Wayne. I don't know how he'll be as Batman though. But I'm willing to give it a shot. I think it will be good and he's going to surprise a lot of people.

I would have preferred to see Christian Bale back but going with Ben Affleck isn't as terrible as everyone is making it seem. Let's wait and see what he looks like in the cowl before we start to bitch about this.

Now, I kind of want to see another Batman movie. Going with a new actor they can now cast someone as The Joker. Still though, I'm disappointed that Christian Bale turned them down. I could totally picture a Batman vs. Superman movie where Bale/Bruce Wayne is retired and then he sees this guy come from another planet and he'd want to come out of retirement again to see what Clark Kent/Superman is all about.

Just as long as we don't have to sit through another origin story of Batman I'm happy. We know the character already. They can introduce a new Batman in Batman vs. Superman and we don't have to get his whole back story.

Why? Even if they stop making movies, they still have their animated series, video games and comics.

Christian Bale is already 39. By the time they make the Justice League movie he'll be around 42. If dc is going to milk the Justice League movie, they'll need a younger cast.

Was anyone that enthusiastic when Ledger was given the role of the Joker? I'd give Affleck a chance. He has been pretty good the last few years.

Batman shouldn't be in a movie with an alien with superhuman powers. That's dumb no matter who the actor is.

You and your lazy script analysis. First 'Citizen Kane' and now this.

There's a lot more to 'Mad Men' than that.
