Re: Pre-release: How do you rate the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman.
Bale was a good Batman, and I feel like Affleck will be good too. Not necessarily great, but he will be a good foil to Supes.
Everyone is bringing up how everyone loved Bale when he was cast. Okay, cool, but that was following Batman and Robin, after a long period without a consistently good Batman. Keaton hadn't been Batman for over a decade. We needed someone new. Saying that Affleck is a poor choice because we, the fans, didn't think of him as our first choice isn't fair, since we're just coming off of Bale's run.
Besides, I'm sure, once the film comes out, we're all gonna shut up about it, and admit he's great. I thought I'd hate Caville as Superman, but I felt he was one of the best parts of the movie.
