Meg likes her men tall, dark and handsome. You can totally tell Batman is interested. :)

For better or for worse, Warner Bros announced that Ben Affleck would play Batman in the upcoming Superman/Batman movie. My initial gut reaction was that Affleck was a terrible choice for Batman/Bruce Wayne. For me, my opinion wasn't based on the fact that Affleck had ruined Daredevil or that he starred in terrible movies like Gigli or Jersey Girl, I just thought he wasn't a good choice as an actor. I feel he's too recognizable and too likable to play such a dark character. Sure, people will point at the character he played in The Town but he was still likable and you rooted for him to pull off that heist at Fenway Park.

Daredevil, Gigli and Jersey Girl isn't who Affleck is to me anymore. To me, he is the tremendously talented actor/director who hasn't missed with Gone Baby Gone, The Town or Argo. I'd actually feel more comfortable about the choice if he was starring and directing the Superman/Batman movie for that reason. I think Snyder is a great visual director but lacks in the storytelling department something that Affleck excels at. Maybe them joining forces is a good thing. It's funny that I'm slowly talking myself into Affleck as I'm typing this. Listen I was right there with everyone else who thought that Heath Ledger was an odd choice for The Joker and man were we all wrong about that. It made me never question Christopher Nolan ever again about casting. If Nolan was involved in the casting of Affleck then I'm all in on Affleck.

I think I've actually turned the corner on Affleck being Batman since it was announced. I'm not rooting against him because I want a good movie to come out of this. It makes sense that WB would run with Affleck because he's their golden boy and if this movie fails, there will never be a Justice League movie. Also if the deal Affleck signed leads to him directing more amazing movies then I'm on board for that. One thing is for sure: Ben Affleck was the BOMB in Phantoms, yo!

"I'm Batman"


Paper Girl: "Eh, good enough." *Glomp Batman*

If he can do the scary, raspy Batman voice that Bale did, then by all means I have no objections.

GREAT AS ALWAYS! Sigh... Although I am trying my best to deny the exsistance of that lasy Badman movie... it is TOOO early & rushed to reboot Batman in film. That, and the seriousness and realism will ruin him again (although the LEGO movie might ruin Batman as much as ''How it Should Have Ended'' has....  I do hope though that he only has one minute in the film only). Plus, WB/DC are just milking this character to the point of being dry and bland...  However, if this is happening, they better put a good Robin/Dick Grayson...  A KID/TEEN ONE! NOT A FREAKING ADULT! (Hopefully CJ Adams, or Dakota Goyo).

I am also lukewarm on this idea of going back to the well with Batman but WB/DC wants what Marvel has with Avengers so I understand it. This movie is a step towards Justice League. I'll definitely see it but I may not be happy with the results. Thanks for the comment.

I may have been the only person that was totally excited about Heath Ledger playing Joker, and I'm going to gloat about that forever, haha.

As for Batman Affleck, I agree with you, I respect him as an actor, but for me I can't imagine him being an intimidating figure, there's gotta be a bit of scaryness to Batman, and I can't imagine Affleck projecting that, but we'll see. Personally I don't care if the movie is good or not, I didn't like Man of Steel, and I don't like how WB handles DC characters in general (that includes Nolan's movies), so I'm probably not going to see the Superman Batman movie until it's on cable or Netflix or something. I wish him good luck though.

We will see. I wasn't over the moon for Man of Steel either. I liked Nolan's Batman (except for Dark Knight Rises) but that character and the realism of that world doesn't fit with Superman. I'm interested to see if this will be a train wreck or a pleasant surprise. Definitely hoping for the latter.

As movies I think the Nolan movies were good, they were really enjoyable, but I feel like he never really nailed Batman's character, he wasn't quite Batman enough, but that's me. As far as the Snyder Superman/Batman movie goes, I can't say I'm invested in the outcome enough to be hoping it's great. I don't wish it ill either though. I'll check it out when it's on Netflix.
