I will never get those arguments.
Before Batman, had Michael Keaton shown in any role that he would make a great Batman?
Keaton was extremely versatile.
and this goes beyond acting. Gambit is a slender, scruffy, witty, cajun, expert thief.
Channing simply doesn't fit in any way whatsover.
Why not pick another skilled actor who looks the part instead of casting a goofy looking hunk who was hot in 2012.
