The Batman films have tended to rely more on his presence/voice/fighting skills/etc to have him intimidate the bad guys. Not many have approached the issue of his sheer physical size. Many of the comics have Batman written as a very large and strong male; I think it was The Dark Knight Returns which made a specific reference to his size.

Affleck has a naturally built athletic body so that does give him an edge.
