Ben Affleck is Batman

Postby CROD » Aug 23rd, 2013, 2:53 am

Warner Brothers just released a press release announcing Ben Affleck as the new Batman.

"Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in “Man of Steel.” The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing andInternational Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17, 2015."

I don't know what to think, he seems like an odd choice.

I remember being very skeptical about Heath Ledger being cast as Joker in the Dark Knight. I ended up being swiftly won over by his performance. I'm skeptical again about Ben Affleck as Batman, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. Honestly, I just want to know what the suit will look like.

What a disaster. This guy already played Daredevil and was pure shit. This guy should stay away from superhero movies, same for Ryan Reynolds.
We are the future of Gotham.

Why is that?


I. Hate. Ben. Affleck.

I really just cannot stand him as an actor. He's an instant turn off for anything he's in.

Now it really annoys the crap out of me that I have to put up with him in Batman/Superman, Justice League and Batman films for the forseeable future.

Not to mention the fact that they did end up going with an actor who was in his 40s and didn't pick Richard Armitage, Josh Brolin or just about anyone else who is more suited for the role than Affleck.

This must be WB's late April Fool's joke. It must be. Ben Affleck is not Batman.
