Ben Affleck is the new BATMAN

"Zack Snyder will be returning to direct Affleck and Henry Cavill in the still-untitled film, which will be the first time Batman and Superman have shared the big screen. The press release announcing the news says that Affleck’s Batman will be “an entirely new incarnation of the character.” Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will be returning to reprise their roles in the film as well, which is slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015."

Hm. Um. Hm. I don't know what to say or make of this honestly. His work's gotten way better over the years. I liked his portrayal of daredevil. But Batman? A character with the most emotional depth I've ever seen in a comic character and Affleck has never displayed that type of depth in any film of his that I've known of. This casting decision makes me a bit, hm. Like i'm not excited about it.

How about you guys..

I'll give it a chance as well (reluctantly), but I doubt too many others will follow suit.

Everyone's jumping on the hate band wagon too quickly

just like how not many thought that Heath Ledger would make a good Joker..Or Daniel Craig a good James Bond.

I never complained about Ledger. Not really sure why people would. But difference was even though we had seen some great acting from him, we still didn't know everything Ledger was capable of. Can't say the same about Affleck.

Not only have we seen him act for many years now but we've seen him play a brooding superhero before in Daredevil.

As for Craig, the only reason that worked is because they reinvented Bond, and Craig was right for that reinvention. Perhaps they're going to do that for Batman, in a way that Ben would suit it, but then people are going to hate the new Batman. Because doesn't really seem like people want Batman reinvented at this point.

Daredevil was over 10 years ago. He's grown so much as an actor since then and on top of that, the script was a disaster. The same was said about Keaton as Batman and Daniel Craig as the next Bond. Let's face it, a lot of people don't like change and is probably more angry because Bale isn't back. History repeats itself!

Or Michael Keaton as Batman or Ann as Catwoman or Tom Hardy as Bane, etc... Truth is, this gives Ben more motivation to play Batman and free press to market the movie globally. It's a win, win situation. Everyone is talking about this, good or bad.

It's funny seeing the dc fans turn on him all of a sudden. I like that he is playing Batman.

It went out the window once Man of Steel sucked.
