lol...I think so. It's like you have to watch it just to see what all the hype is about, but I you're also right if the "S" goes south then he'll be okay in he long run. He won't be able to avoid the fallout though.

Cavill has launched the DCCU. So technically shouldn't he be the big guy, the RDJ, and not Affleck?
Well...no because the comparison of just starting a franchise isn't really what's being compared. The RDJ thing is a bit specific to an actor who has some history in Hollywood that includes failures. Affleck is a more apt comparison because some of the same failures RDJ was known for also apply to Affleck, i.e. the substance abuse. The comparison is really more about career resurgence, and if Affleck kills it as Batman he will FINALLY put a lot of his naysayers to bed because he will have finally redeemed his DD days. No one will be saying **** after that.
