He's not kidding... it's sad because it's true!  :'(

I love Ben, just REALLY don't want to see him as Batman! He'll be worse than George Clooney... if that's even possible!

Also, didn't the casting directors watch Daredevil?!

As a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachsetts, I approve this casting choice. About time we had a Batman with a Southie accent. Pahking the Batmobile? Wicked awesome!

As a Batman fan myself... I am flabbergasted.

I stand by my decision that actors should only be allowed to mess up one superhero/villain before they are ejected from the pool.

This goes for Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern. He already ruined Deadpool. (Though I guess that can be mainly attributed to poor use of the character and bad writing)

Could be worse. They could've cast Ben Stiller.

Exactly, it wasn't Ryan Reynolds fault they didn't use the character properly, and then subsequently SILENCED the character... wtf

I don't know, Bardoch, it just didn't *FEEL* right, you know? I didn't feel like he was Deadpool. That movie made me lose faith with marvel. I think it would be cool if they did a Deadpool and Cable movie.

Affleck was not to blame for Daredevil's problems.  Plus, that was a long time ago.  You guys should watch Argo for a more recent and accurate gauge of what he's capable of.  It's a great film...I don't throw the term around loosely.

I was surprised by this casting choice, and I feel like I've seen him in so many movies that it might be hard to accept him as Batman.  Still, I don't doubt that he's capable of pulling it off.  I'd be more worried about the writers & director, and their overall vision for the characters after the disaster that was Man of Steel.

Man of Steel was the best Superman movie since Superman II, IMO.

Yeah, but that's not saying much.  The movies between Superman II and MOS were huge failures.

He's gonna be great until he opens his mouth. Fingers crossed for Andy Dick as The Riddler!

I also liked DareDevil. I feel Bad for actors who replace other actors. In my opinion, all the actors who played BatMan did a good job if you look at each movie separate from the first. I'll give Ben Affleck a chance as long as he dosen't speak.
