RE: Ben Affleck is the new Batman
I like Affleck as an actor. Not sure he can top Christian Bale though.

RE: Ben Affleck is the new Batman
Ben Affleck As Batman? Thousands Sign Removal Petition

Quote:Two petitions started, one on change.org and another in the “We the People” section of the White House website.

The change.org petition is aimed at Warner Bros.; the White House petition asked the Obama administration to “denounce the selection of Ben Affleck” and recast the role of Batman.

Quote:“His acting skill is not even close to being believable as Bruce Wayne and he won’t do the role justice. He’s not built, nor is he intimidating enough for the role of Batman. His portrayal of Daredevil was atrocious and he’s not remotely close to an action star. Please find someone else,” the petition says.

Quote:“I’m a diehard fan but will in no way pay to watch this film. Shame for letting us all down. You need Bale or some new actor that hasn’t been over exposed. Ben Affleck is not believable in anything because of all the exposure he is more of a reality star now.”

The casting and director did exactly what they wanted to do.

Now all these people who hate Affleck and say "he will make the shittiest batman ever" will go see the movie even despite never having would originally just to complain about Affleck as Batman.

But yeah, no one in the world can top Bale. He's the top 0.1% of actors - versatility, dedication, uniqueness, charisma - ever. Anyone would get slack after Bale, so may as well choose gossip fodder Affleck.

Nolan should have reprised Penguin or Riddler.

RE: Ben Affleck is the new Batman
Let's see what happens. I don't even watch movies much, let alone comic book movies, but Heath Ledger's Joker might be my favorite movie character of all time. But if you'd have told me it was him before the movie, I'd have laughed.

RE: Ben Affleck is the new Batman
They wanted an older batman.

Josh Brolin, any unknown/small time actor, or the safe bet: Daniel Craig

Its not that ben affleck is not an ok actor for the roles he plays...but he DOES NOT embody batman....his aura/face/walk/mannerisms etc DO NOT embody batman

Especially the darker than usual batman from the Miller's series

Michael Keaton was a great Batman. Christian Bale is a pretty boy that talked like he had throat cancer. I still think Jack Nicholson was the best actor in any Batman movie.

RE: Ben Affleck is the new Batman
The same outcry took place when Michael Keaton (perceived as not having the appropriate stature and predominantly known for his comedic work) was cast in Tim Burton's original 1989 film. Believe it or not, fans were pushing for Adam West to play Batman. West was great in the campy 1960's television series, but would have been absolutely horrendous in the context of Burton's vision. Although casting Affleck may seem strange, it's not a terrible decision. Since his mainstream breakthrough, Ben Affleck has come a long way as both an actor and filmmaker. While the Nolan trilogy was excellent, this film is part of a different franchise and I'm excited to see what a new actor will bring to the role.

You turn into Frank Miller in 1986 and write one of the greatest batman stories ever, thats how http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Knight_Returns

This (which is one of the best), in addition to a plethora of various crossovers through the years. For example:

Batman/Superman

Keaton was good but physically I never bought him as the Batman. Bale actually got jacked for the role and even learned martial arts. That Batman voice was pretty annoying but other than that I think he is definitely the best Batman and the Nolan Batman movies are best Batman movies and probably one of the best Superhero/comic-book movies.

I do wonder about the unoriginality and repetitiveness of Hollywood. Are they going to keep on "rebooting" Spider-man/Batman/Hulk/Ironman or any other comic-book franchises every 5 years. Nolan wrapped up his Batman pretty well and I hope they don't reboot the franchise at least for another 10 years or so. I was reading that Hollywood execs have become blander than bland and only want to produce big-budget movies guaranteed to make money worldwide. The reality now is that a lot of the good movies made in the 80s and 90s would never get made today because Hollywood has become extremely risk averse. TV is becoming the new playground for creative writers and the roles have reversed between Hollywood and TV.

Absolutely true. TV is brilliant. Sopranos, The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad etc, etc.
