Re: Ben Affleck IS Bruce Wayne/Batman.
This was completely unexpected. I'm keeping an open-mind, though. He's definitely made great films since his resurgence, so I have hope. Now I'm just curious to see the new suit.
If any character has ever earned the right to enjoy a happy retirement, it is Bruce Wayne. Nolan ought to be commended for caring enough about the character and believing enough in his own vision to provide a definitive, satisfying ending to the story of an ordinary man who turned tragedy into the motivation to accomplish something extraordinary.
