    Apparently he'sbecome a decent actor...must've missed that press release...

    Hopefully he'll do the storyline justice. If it's the graphic novel of when Bat meets Supe, then it promises to be a right good film...if Ben Affleck doesn't fuck it up...

    Blegh. sounds like the end of the good Batman series. Why can't Hollywood let go of the concept of celebrity for celebrity-sake? Are they worried the title "Batman" isn't going to draw people in, so they need to cast someone whose name is recognizable? Casting choices like this make me feel insulted as a viewer.

    Extra points to Will Wheaton for throwing some shade.

    "Wil Wheaton threw a little shade at Mr. Affleck by mentioning his past action film and a certain romantic comedy he costarred in with Jennifer Lopez that was, well, admittedly not Ben's best work. "Really looking forward to seeing Affleck bring the depth and gravitas to Batman that he brought to Daredevil and Gigli," he tweeted, adding, But Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms."

    Y'know, I always get them 2 mixed up...now I remember, Ben Stiller's the one who's not funny, Ben Affleck is the one that can't act....right, got it...


    [edit] I accidentally put Ben Stiller twice - see, I get them mixed up all the time!icon_lol.gif

    Maybe everyone should keep an open mind and go see the movie. Then after you do that, decide if you like it.


    I mean....Will Ferrell overall is a one-dimensional actor but was amazing in Stranger than Fiction.


    Remember everyone screaming that Tom Cruise was gonna be Lestat in Interview with the Vampire? Even Anne Rice apologized and said he did awesome.

    hahahaah! this is gold.

    I am not a fan on Ben. I can only imagine what they have in store for this movie. Maybe if they don't show his face in the film. That may help. *shrugs*

    I don't know why they don't go with an on-the-cusp actor, or even a virtual unknown. It's really the role that holds all the cache.

    Sometimes iconic parts like these are best embodied by unfamiliar faces. You don't want audiences seeing Ben Affleck and not Batman.
