The Next Batman is Ben Affleck WTF
It is now being promoted as fact that the next Batman will be none other than Ben Affleck. Not to scoop batmantrailer -Why have you not posted this yet- :) Regardless of that, I say WTF. Are they trying to ruin Batman. Don't get me wrong. I really think Affleck,. he is a great actor. Probably better than he gets credit for. He is definitely good enough to play the role of Batman.
Its not his acting skills that worry me. Its the look and feel. He still has a baby face. He doesn't look old enough, especially for this role. The guy is awesome but not for superheroes. Doesn't anyone remember his other superhero movie "Daredevil". You would think that they would learn.
As much as I like to watch his movies I feel almost sick to my stomach about this. When the rumors came out that they were thinking of choosing Ryan Gosling and Brolin I thought, no way on Gosling and well maybe Brolin. Now that they went this route I would love to go back in time and say either one of those guys would be awesome. But too late now. I actually feel that Leonardo Dicaprio would be a great choice. (This was pretty random but with dark hair and his serious talent to pull off any role I think he was the only true choice as far as known actors) That being said it seems to me that a completely unheard of actor should have got this role. I mean Henry Cavill worked out great and I truly believe if you aren't going to bring back Bale then you need to reboot with a completely new face.
With so much riding on this I don't think you can go with someone that has already failed at pleasing comic fans. Now I felt the same way when Anne Hathaway was cast as Catwoman, and I would like to say I was completely wrong about her. She ended up being perfect or purrrfect for that role, but that was Nolan. For some reason I feel this is a completely different situation. Matt Damon gets a super hero role now lets get his old boy back in the saddle.
Maybe it will work out, I was wrong before. I'm curious to here what others here have to say so please give me your thoughts. This is a serious concern of mine.
