Wow is that sad.


I do hope that affleck can muster a better Batman voice than Bale's bullfrog imitation, though.

This came from left field didn't it? My Facebook feed started blowing up with this around 10 PM last night, friends were asking me "Dude, did you hear about this?" and I'm like "Um... no, I must've missed a memo." Very Happy

I may be one of the few who liked Affleck's previous superhero turn in "Daredevil," which had some stylistic similarities to "Batman"... so I'll take a wait-and-see 'tude.

Affleck was also very good as George Reeves, who played Superman on TV in the '50s, in the underrated film "Hollywoodland," which I think only Manny and I have seen Very Happy
Thats how I feel, is wait and see he might surprise, I mean didnt Heath Ledger get some sort of flack for playing the Joker? I know i was like WTF but to this date he's played the best joker on the big screen (RIP)

"Fans" bitch, whine and complain anytime ANYONE is cast as a beloved, well-known character. The panned Keaton, then loved him. They panned Ledger, then he completely knocked it out of the park and became a standard. They're panning Affleck now...I bet he'll nail it. With Nolan producing and the same team that did MoS doing it, I am expecting to at least like it. Plus, w/ Bryan Cranston as Luthor, I can't wait to see it!

Ledger didn't get anywhere near the backlash that Keaton or Affleck is getting... and he had a huge task stepping into Jack Nicholson's shadow and did a killer job

Not true. Someone on the Dream Theater board posted a screen capture of old threads where it was talked about on the board AND links to websites panning it...people were SHREDDING the choice of Ledger. I remember that too.

Looking back, Jack Nicholson was simply being Jack Nicholson in Joker make up...Ledger disappeared inside the character.

I didn't mind Ledger getting the job as the Joker although my first glimpses of him in character looked terrible (or so I thought). Seeing the finished product, Ledger was THE Joker as far as I'm concerned. Simply brilliant.


And as I had already stated, totally agree on Nicholson.

Heath Ledger definitly set a standard I dont think there will ever be anyone can come close to the caliber he gave the role.

I am kind of excited to see Affleck as Batman I'm curious, like I said wait and see , so far my fave is Christian Bale but we shall see......

The Nolan Batman movies were great but I really don't think Christian Bale offered anything really special aside from the laughable "Bat voice". He was okay but the success of the films had a helluva lot more to do with Christopher Nolan than anything Bale brought to the screen.

I think you could have plugged in just about any actor in his place and those movies would have been just fine.

So I think the shock has worn off and I'm surprisingly okay with Affleck as Batman, especially if we get Cranston as Luther. Now time to get back to worrying about the handling of Ender's Game.

Look, everyone, I'm just gonna throw this out there and see what happens, but...not a fan of the Nolan Batman films. Overrated and empty-headed. Heath was the best thing about #2. Still have yet to see #3. So...there you go.

And Nolan isn't quite the director everyone hypes him up to be. Competent, to be sure, but I'd hesitate to say brilliant. So...there you go again.

^^ What this guy said, right here. I liked all three of the Nolan films to some extent but honestly the only one I'd bother watching again is "The Dark Knight," and that's due to Ledger's portrayal of the Joker.  In all three of the Nolan movies, Bale didn't do much to distinguish himself, he's just the guy in the suit.

...on a somewhat related note, rumor has it that Zack Snyder is interested in having former James Bond Timothy Dalton play Alfred (!) in the Superman/Batman crossover flick...

I feel the same way. Nolan's Batman movies are joyless and bloated, and his "realistic" take is unintentionally hilarious.

As far as Affleck goes, his problem is that he's a really dull actor. I expect he'll do an inoffensive job as Batman but he won't leave his mark on the part either. I'm guessing that he's probably taking the part because he has some less commercial movies in development to direct and WB insisted that he play Batman before they would fund them.

Or because he said "F**K YEA, I want to be BATMAN!!"

The casting choices for this film has caused the biggest instance of "Internet Nerd Rage" I've seen for awhile, I find it supremely entertaining to listen to fanboys whine and cry and bitch.

First there was Ben Affleck being cast as Batman.

Then they cast Israeli model/actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman which pissed off the entire internet because she doesn't have Lynda Carter measurements…thousands of fans who seem completely fixated on breast size (comic book nerds living in their parents basements, probably never touched a real boob).

Gal Gadot:



Then just today we get the announcement for who will play villain Lex Luthor…

…Jesse Eisenberg!

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Lex Luthor -



In less-controversial casting they chose Liam Neeson to play Albert.

I'm not upset that they chose Jesse, even though I really think he's overrated. I'm just confused. It makes far less sense than Affleck as Wayne.

Eh, I'm getting less and less interested in this movie. I'm sure it will be decent but not great.

And what happened to Cranston cast as Luthor?

On a tangentially related note, SyFy announced today that Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will both be returning for "Sharknado 2." Smile

I tell ya what, Gal Gadot might not look like the 70s version of Wonder Woman but she is drop dead gorgeous, she looks like Natalie Portman's taller supermodel sister (Portman is also Israeli).
