    Damn, the internet is having a lot of fun with this one. I think Kevin Smith and I are the only ones happy with this news. And I love it.

    Affleck also played Superman in Hollywoodland. Or, rather he played George Reeves who played Superman. Let that one settle in. The guy playing Batman in a Superman movie also played a guy who played Superman. Woah.

    I will say I think Ben Affleck is a solid actor but I think Zack Snyder will ruin this movie no matter who is cast as Batman. Affleck doesn't have that Batman vibe to me.

    Since I had no intention of seeing this anyway the meltdown is hysterical to me. I actually think Ben has become a pretty good actor and could pull this off in the right movie. People thought Ledger was a bad choice in 06 for the Joker too.

    But still this is funny.

    I'm sure some said that about Ledger, but there was something about him in other roles where you could say, okay I think he has the range to pull it off. There is nothing about Ben Affleck's body of work as it stands that makes me think of anything but laughing out loud at the thought - he's a good actor, don't get me wrong, but I don't see the whole brooding crime fighter there. I didn't like him in Daredevil at all, and I think that Batman will be bigger shoes to fill.

    Not liking the Affleck casting at all. I hope he proves me wrong but I just don't see him as either Bruce Wayne or Batman. He has become a good actor and a better director, though, and I hope he proves me wrong like Ledger did in TDK. I'm probably more skeptical of Affleck than I was of Ledger at this point.

    Just to add a Little perspective to this whole casting thing..You know Affleck may not become the worse Batman ever cast....Just remember Michael Keaton once played Batman...:ninja: I rest my case:grin:

    Many people would argue Keaton was the best Batman. I think he was 2nd behind Bale.

    Kevin Conroy - Michael Keaton - Adam West are my top 3 in that order.
