Ben is a spectacular director. He may have developed into a fine actor. But Batman he ain't. We saw that with George Clooney and I don't care how bad or good Batman & Robin was.
If Affleck proves me wrong I'll be the first one to admit it. I just can't see him as Batman. And it's not like he'll have make-up to pull of a chameleon-like transformation like Ledger did with the Joker.
Plus the sequel has to deal with Goyer's preachy monologue script and Snyder's shakey cam. Combine that we'll get a fundamental case of not getting the subject matter or the characters.
I completely agree. I don't think Affleck has ever shown the diversity that guys like Heath Ledger and Robert Downey Jr bring. He has one pitch. It works in the right role, but take him outside of what he's good at and it doesn't work. The first movie wasn't great, in my opinion. Especially in comparison to some of the stellar comic movies that have come out in recent years. And considering the direction that they are going with some of the casting, this sequel is setting up to be a colossal failure.
