    Affleck to star as Batman in Superman/Batman movie

    I am at a loss here. I liked him as Daredevil. But Batman? I don't know.

    Ben Affleck should not be Batman. They seriously couldn't find anyone else?

    Especially considering they are supposedly going for a Dark Knight Returns style older Batman? Josh Brolin. John Hamm. Richard Armitage. Karl Urban (have you seen Dredd? Amazing, and exactly the Batman of that comic.). Just off the top of my head.

    As for the Heath Ledger comparison regarding unexpected acting, I don't see it. Ledger had shown that he had the acting chops to put an interesting spin on the character. Affleck? Not so much.

    It is funny that Snyder will be directing a much better director though.

    There are a bunch of other "darker" actors i'd prefer to see as Batman, but I suppose lately Affleck has been pretty good in his movies. The Town was solid... Argo I didn't love but it wasn't because of his acting. He just sort of rubs me the wrong way.

    I've always been an Affleck fan so I support him on this. Why he's doing it is beyond me considering he's done a great job recently but it's his and the casting director's choice. Naturally tons of people are complaining over it but it'd be the same no matter who it was.

    Actually this makes the most sense. Affleck doesn't need a role like this. The guy is a huge up and coming director. He can easily make the transition permanently behind the camera and never work as an actor again. It just doesn't make sense.

    Unless of course this is all smoke and mirrors and they change the actor down the road.
