Bale's casting lit the Internet on fire. He was the guy 99% of us (including me) wanted. I can see why some people didn't like his Batman, but at the time, his casting was a fanboy's dream come true.
However, Halle Berry as Storm, both Rachel Dawes, and a whole hell of a lot of other X-characters were really not good choices at all.
Yeah I know the opinion is pretty stupid considering I actually enjoyed the Nolanverse films a whole lot and the casting didn't bother me that much, but I thought I might as well just get it off my chest.
But really the X-Men casting just put me off so much that I couldn't even watch X2.
