Have you even seen his more recent work? He's massively improved as an actor, and Daredevil is actually good when you watch the director's cut instead of the butcher's work done in post-production.

But what am I saying? You're proba-

F***'s sake this is goddamn ridiculous. The President has more important things to worry about than Ben Affleck as f***ing Batman.

All of the the problems we face and the Internet has rallied and is petitioning to stop an actor to play Batman!Those who took the time to read and sign that but don't consider petitions concerning unemployment, education, health care or reform of the political system should re-evaluate some things.

I'm sick of arguing about this, but: THE PRESIDENT HAS BETTER F*CKING THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT THAN BEN F*CKING AFFLECK PLAYING BATMAN!!!

I've been on the vine for six years, in total my various role playing accounts have accumulated over 30000 posts, I've seen the absolute rock bottom of human intellect on this site, with people sinking to such mental lows that sometimes I just wanted to scream into a pillow until the stupid people went away.

And this is still the third dumbest thread I have ever seen.

I would say 12th for me lol

Seriously,this is ridiculous.

Not only do you horribly exaggerate and undermine him,but....why the f*ck is this an issue? It's not like they cast Honey Boo Boo for the role.

And petitions never work,so don't even bother....

Yep, I'm sure WB is gonna listen to a couple thousand raging nerds when they already have a multimillion dollar deal all set up with Ben and risk legal backlash from Ben, all to appease some loud internet complainers who will see the movie no matter who is cast as Batsy.

He wouldn't be my first pick as Batman, but there are far worse actors that could have been cast. Let it go people, carrying around so much anger is not good for the human psyche.

I kind of hope it gets enough signatures. I think the White House legally have to issue a statement on any petition with enough signatures, and I'd be interested to hear what they'd have to say. Remember they had to respond to the petition for a Death Star to be built?

People understand the the government can't legally force someone to change a movie casting decision, right? I mean our educational system isn't that far gone is it?

"No matter how many times you post your stupid "Fire Ben Affleck from Playing Batman" petition, I'm going to delete it and block you. Take a deep breath, and think for a second:

Yeah, the dude's made some bad films. Every actor has. Every actor does. Every actor will. It's a huge, arcing career and NO ONE has control over where it goes. Movie to movie, year to year, you're collaborating and trying and risking and, sometimes, yes -- failing.

Plus, everyone seems to forget that he had the world dropped in his lap when he was YOUNG. And, judging by how other suddenly-famous youngsters do in the same situation, he fared pretty well. Even when it went wrong, he seemed to keep a self-deprecating, long-view philosophy about the burning freak carousel he'd found himself on.

And then what happened? I mean, he'd fallen from a HEIGHT. You know what happens to 95% of people who weather a descent that steep? They come apart, fray at all of their sanity nodes, and give up.

But then there's the 5% who embrace crushing defeat and see it for the gift it is. And here's the gift: when you fail, and fail UTTERLY, you wake up the next morning and see that the world didn't end. And then the fear of failure is gone. And you're free. You're free to proceed on your own terms and pace -- if you have the ego that permits you to.

Ben brushed himself off, realized he'd kept his eyes open on the movies he'd done, and started directing. And he's become a damn good one.

A Batman portrayed by someone who's tasted humiliation and a reversal of all personal valences -- kind of like Grant Morrison's "Zen warrior" version of Batman, post-ARKHAM ASYLUM, who was, in the words of Superman, "...the most dangerous man on the planet"? Think for a second and admit that Ben Affleck is closer to THAT top-shelf iteration of The Dark Knight than pretty much anyone in Hollywood right now.

I'd write more, but I have to go work on my post about how an overweight 44 year-old comedian with bad feet and insomnia would be a bold choice for The Joker."- Patton Oswalt via facebook https://www.facebook.com/pattonoswalt

That's not why I don't want to see him as Wayne. I actually really liked him in Daredevil. THESE are the reasons I don't want to see it.

1) He publicly said that he would never play a superhero again, proving that he is just media whoring and doesn't even care about playing Batman

2) Argo sucked. It was racist, slow and completely underused John Goodman. I'm sorry, but that's just my opinion.

3) WE'VE ALREADY SEEN HIM PLAY A SUPERHERO!! ONE VERY SIMILAR TO BATMAN!!! DAMN!!

4) He doesn't care about the character. I know I already said this, but it's that big of a deal to me.

1.People change their minds

2. This fits into the sometimes people make bad movies despite their talents category.

3. Who cares?

4. He'll care more now that its his job to.
