    Default Seriously: Ben Affleck???

    I just read Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the upcoming Superman/Batman movie.

    Given Ben's track record, this franchise is probably doomed.

    I think someone like Daniel Craig or Jason Statham would make a good Batman.

    This is a "joke", right? In any case Cavill would be giving up almost 3" in height to Affleck's Batman. What are they going to do, put Superman in lifts?

    Halo, I like the idea of Jason Statham. He was real good in the remake of the Mechanic which originally starred Charles Bronson in his role as the master/teacher and Jan Michael Vincent as the pupil.Good choice.Those Transporter movies once you see the 1st one the're all the same......

    I am not a big fan of BA either, (except in Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) but he might do a better job than he did with Daredevil. He's older now and could play a grittier Batman, and hopefully the writing will be a lot better than it was on that movie.

    I think Ben will do fine. He is a very good actor and he bulked up.
    I think he might even do a better job than Bale did.

    After Man Of Steel, I trust Zack Snyder on his choices. Affleck has come a long way as an actor, so... I'm willing to give it a chance.

    The Town and Argo were both fantastic, but that doesn't mean he can do batman. I'm just imagining him saying lines with his Boston accent. "I forgaht weah I pahked the batmobile!"

    LOL!! Seriously though, I think he'll do a fine job and prove the naysayers wrong...

    On an off-topic subject, I am thinking about trying these cables out. Does anyone know how good they are?

    This is just awful! Worst casting ever! I think Karl Urban would make a great Batman and Bruce Wayne but Affleck is just pathetic. He's not a good enough actor to do Bruce Wayne justice and he's too skinny and awkward looking to pull off Batman. Man this just breaks my heart. WTF are these people thinking. If you listen, you can hear the slap from the double faceplate Christian Bale and Chris Nolan are doing right now.

    Christopher Nolan is the executive producer... so odds are that he had a hand in the Affleck casting. Just sayin'.

    And Karl Urban is Judge Dredd. And they need to do a sequel, because Dredd was awesome. :D

    I could think of 10 other better prospects...

    Yes Karl Urban
    Jason Statham
    Christian Bale was great
    Michael Madsen
    Ryan Reynolds
    Clive Owen
    Brad Pitt
    Gerard Butler
    Sean William Scott
    Channing Tatum

    Heck even Casey Affleck is a better actor than ben...

    I have a hard time watching any movie where Affleck, Cruise, or Damon are considered to be tough guys.

    There is a lot of push back on this in the press. I thought Tom C as Jack Reacher (6'4" 230 lbs by the books) would be a disaster but he did a pretty good job, I'm willing to give Ben a shot
