Very random. I mean, I guess I can see it maybe? But if you've seen Daredevil....

Well he was already red batman so...

@clumsyninja: lol that would be the best comedy ever.

On a serious note, I have my reservations about this casting choice. I can't imagine him as Batman, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see. I thought Ruffalo would make a terrible Hulk but I was dead wrong on that one.

Just remember there is a long list of actors we all thought would be horrible in roles they ended up being awesome in, like the 4 million people who bitched about Heath Ledger as Joker then pretended they supported the idea all along after the Dark Knight was declared god's gift to Batman movies.

#12 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (8096 posts) - - Show Bio

This sucks.

Ben Affleck as Batman is HORRIBLE.

Well, so much for DC creating a good movie universe.

As far as the casting goes, I actually wouldn't mind Affleck as Batman. Personality and acting-wise I think he can nail it, but is he going to need a stunt double for every second action sequence?

Not bad. Would've preferred Brolin though.

I think that kid who wanted Scott Adkins to play Batman so much just committed suicide.........

Again, this is a perfect choice.

Ugh......it's like Hollywood hates batman and his fans. Did they see daredevil?!?! They guy didn't even bother getting in shape to play a SUPERHERO that is at the peak of human condition when he was 11 years younger than he is now. Why did they think he was a good choice?!

As I said in the other thread regarding Ben Affleck as Batman.

"He has the build and has proven himself able to play calm and controlled characters (ex. Argo, The Town), I think he can pull it off."

Wth is going on with DC

#26 Posted by AzorAhai (158 posts) - - Show Bio

@alak: Mark Ruffalo >> Norton and Bana. Sure he may not look like it but he hit the role spot on

#27 Edited by The Stegman (26086 posts) - - Show Bio

Actually...I don't mind this, I can see him as Batman...

Scott Adkins could never plat Batman. Yeah he's got the body but can he act? + Ben Affleck has got that legendary Bruce Wayne chin

I like it. He's bigger and more bulky than Bale so now when he beats people up, it'll look more realistic..

Definitely see your point. I'll wait for a few trailers/clips before I pass judgment.

Not to start a trend here, but have any of you have watched any of Affleck's work besides Daredevil?

The guy's been redeemed for a long time now, we're not talking about the cringe inducing Affleck from the days of Armageddon and Pearl Harbor, we're talking about the stand out award winning driector/actor that we have today.

I sincerely don't give a crap about the decision, a reason why I don't really have much interest in casting specculation and decisions is because I don't know how an actor will play a part, I won't go all supportive on a choice like Scott Adkins just because the guy can throw a punch, for all I've seen the guy's a mediocre actor at best, but hey, who knows, I thought the same thing with Cavill and he won me over. We have no idea how Affleck's gonna portray the character, just as we wouldn't have any idea how any other actor would play him, but somehow Affleck's getting all the hate because half the internet hasn't seen The Town.

Honestly, I'm more interested in knowing who'll play Alfred.

He's gonna love it dude - His best friend just became Batman.... what else could he want?

#39 Posted by Wolverine08 (45704 posts) - - Show Bio

But seriously, Batman is my second favorite hero, and I am iffy about this, but I'll wait and see because hey, people thought Hugh Jackman couldn't play Wolverine, and we al know how that turned out.

So many people are loosing their shit over this when there WB could've picked far worse. In fact, I actually think Affleck was a great choice.

#41 Posted by joshmightbe (24767 posts) - - Show Bio

@battle_forum_junkie: I think that's what we all should do, the dude has come a long way in acting ability since he was in Daredevil so he could surprise us and surpass Bale, or at the very least make it a semi decent movie. Lets wait until he actually does something bad in the role before dubbing it a terrible decision because we all know that every single Batman and Superman fan on this site is going to see it regardless and any who claim they aren't is lying.

Who cares if Ben did a good job in Argo and The Town. Just because someone can act decently doesn't mean he is a good choice to play Batman.

There are tons of great actors out there that just shouldn't be Batman.

I don't support this decision. "Not. One. Bit." - Joker (The Dark Knight)

when i read the news on cenimablend i paused for a few minutes thinking of who he is and all the people he has played and the first one i thought of was of course Daredevil than i thought of his character on Argo and i started thinking on the first thought he is not good for this role why the hell would they do this to batman, than i thought... its possible and can be done. i do not know if this movie is gonna be good or if its gonna be the biggest let down in superhero history. we'll just have to wait and see

#49 Posted by CheeseSticks (2589 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I can say one thing for him right now, though.

He defiantly has the jaw for the role.
