Tetro, from what I've read online (and could be total BS) one of the reasons affleck was considered is based on his knowledge of the character and his recent directing sucess. Snyder is still behind the camera and goyer is still principle writer but I understand he's going to be used as a creative consultant for both the story and script and with the directing.

He brings a total package with him, seasoned acting career at the top level, a vast amount of batman knowledge plus his skills behind the camera. I honestly think the hate towards him is just totally off kilter as when you start to think about it he brings a lot to the table.

The thing that bugs me is that a large number of Americans were petitioning the White House! Some people need to get some perspective in their lives. People who probably don't vote, don't do anything with a real moral cause get all activism about who's playing the next Batman, it boggles my mind.

Out of curiosity, is this film with Batman and Superman in it a Superman sequel? By that I mean has Snyder, WB etc said it is. The reason I asked is that I'm sure I read not long ago somebody saying that WB wasn't going to follow the same path Marvel has been doing. That they wanted to make individual connects in the DC Universe and not have single stories that all lead to one big group film (though The Justice League film would suggest otherwise to that I guess).

As far as I'm aware they've already said a direct sequel to man of steel with only superman will follow the justice league. This next film featuring batman I presume must follow events from man of steel otherwise it all seems a bit pointless.

I would even suspect the flash film that's also been greenlit will either feature some fleeting cameos or at the very least reference events from both films as they are tying all this together in preparation for the justice league film.

Even though I was never dead set against Affleck becoming the Bat, I am starting to think it may not be a bad idea at all.

I watched the Town last night and he was brilliant in it, I was also playing Arkham City and I could actually imagine Afleck as a bigger more formidable Batman. I think people need to forget Daredevil and give this 2 times Oscar winner a chance as Batman, I certainly am.

I remember people saying that Heath Ledger was a terrible choice for Joker...

I remember people saying Keaton was a terrible choice for Batman...

I remember people saying George Clooney was an excellent choice for Batman...

Look how all of those turned out!

My only real worry about Affleck is his ability to bulk up enough to be convincing as i've never seen him really change his physique for a role in the same way as Bale has.

I hope they do try to keep JGL in the frame though by having him play Nightwing at some point

"My only real worry about Affleck is his ability to bulk up enough to be convincing as i've never seen him really change his physique for a role in the same way as Bale has."

He is pretty pretty bulky tho isnt he?

All that you say is very true, although I dont remember anyone saying George Clooney was going to be a good Batman, did they??. Also to be fair to old Salt and Pepper head, there were so many things wrong with B&R his crappness as Bats was just part of a rich tapestry of cack.

But ur right on the money with the Heath ledger example, I was one of those that said neigh. "not that teenybopper actor as Joker, I said " it was nearly as bad as my "Daniel Craig is just not James Bond material" statment, I couldnt of been more wrong on both counts. So i am keeping schtum about Affleck and ill just wait and see.

I think Bale is another example of someone who really puts his whole body into roles. If you've ever seen him in The Fighter, and especially The Machinist, you'll know what I mean! Compare him in those to the Batman trilogy!! I imagine he had to have been seriously, seriously ill when he made The Machinist - he looks hideous.

It cant be good for you gaining and losing that kind of weight, especially as thin as he got in the Machinist. Someone put a pic on FB the other day charting his different appearance/weight in films, shocking.

I always thought that the Robert Downey Jr character in Tropic Thunder was a bit of a micky take of Bale and those sorts of actors. Especially when his character has the pigments of his skin all surgically darkened so he can play and "authentic African/American" lol

RDJ in Tropic Thunder was definitely a pop at actors like that. As far as I know though Bale will go to great lengths to change his image for roles but won't go quite as far as the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis who does actually say he stays in character for the duration of filming, even at home with his family.

...I find it difficult to imagine Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York doing the washing up!

oh god not affleck, thats all sorts of wrong, people keep saying he is good in Argo but frankly i thought he was wooden and the worst actor in that film you were tricked into thinking he was ok by the shaggy hair and beard that made him not look so much like a pretty boy.

The guy from breaking bad who plays Walt is going to be Lex luthor and signed a 6 movie appearance

Good choice IMO

I am now hoping Affleck is the best bats ever after those numpties campaigned at the White House, what a joke.

I can see the story now..

Superman flying around, see's Batman, Batman throws Batarang, Superman dodges and uses Eye Lasers and pop's Batman's head.

Or

Superman flying around, see's Batman, fly's into Batman, force kills him dead

Or

Superman flying around, see's Batman, Batman punches Superman, Superman laughs, Superman power fists Batman face-off..

Shocking development, almost like trying to win the F1 championship in a Austin Maxi

"Superman flying around, see's Batman, fly's into Batman, force kills him dead"

Is Superman a Jedi in the next film too ?

Maybe they should get the actors to have a real fight and film that. M<ake it far more entertaining and give some creditability back
