I like Padalecki, but he really shouldn't be flapping his trap in this situation.

If Affleck can get Damon to play Lex I will be forever grateful.

Affleck can't half ass it like he did with DD acting wise and body wise. He needs to get in killer shape and be half way decent this time.

Can someone draw the Adam West's Batmask eyebrow and nose lines into Ben's DD mask?

An weak performance from an actor with little range (yet another argument).

and we should just forget it happened.

That's like supporting Kevin Costner being cast as another British medieval archer.

Something tells me he was in fact up for it and didn't get it because of Affleck.

I laughed. I am sure he is just joking about as I doubt anyone (sane) wanted or seriously thought he had a chance.

Okay I'm putting the Hype on official suicide watch.

Now the real question can be asked, can Affleck's Batman and Cavill's Superman have enough chemistry that they can be seen in a platonic and romantic relationship? Gotta have that der yaoi.

"According to several (more than 1, less than 10 *wink*) unrelated BOF sources, the new Batman that will appear in the MAN OF STEEL sequel, will be older. Like mid-40s older.

That tells me that we’re definitely not getting a rookie Batman – this new Batman will be a grizzled veteran who has been on the job, if you will, for several years.

So who is going to play the new Batman/Bruce Wayne? I will not confirm or deny whether or not I’ve heard any names, but I will say that fans should start thinking about dudes who are a very good actors and are in their 40s, like…

Josh Duhamel, Jude Law, Gerard Butler, Josh Brolin, Jon Hamm, Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Jim Caviezel, etc."

Bats and Supes in a Civil Union, breaking down barriers. Wait, what state is Metropolis in?

Here's why this isn't a bad casting. It's damn near a great casting.

Experience & Acting/Storytelling Chops:

Yes, he has had missteps. Missteps that could have nearly killed his career in Gigli and Daredevil. The fact he has been able to bounce back from these missteps and reinvent himself as one of the most critically acclaimed film writer-directors currently working while still remaining a very good actor is an extremely impressive feat. Affleck in pretty formidable in front of the camera as well as behind it.

All of the greats are able to learn from their mistakes, which I feel is something Affleck has done. IMO, he has exorcised the demons from Daredevil, and will take what he learned from that experience and use it to play an even better Batman. Donning the Daredevil cowl has prepared him to don the Batman cowl...IMO.

He's been a part of blockbusters (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor), cult-classics (Mallrats, Dogma), Oscar winners (Good Will Hunting, Argo), and shown he has what it takes to tell a compelling story (Gone Baby Gone, The Town).

He is also close friends with one of the greatest minds in comic-book and nerd culture, Kevin Smith. If that counts for anything.

The Look:

Not much to say here. He has the look. He's a few pounds of muscle shy from being the perfect Bruce Wayne/Batman archetype. Actually, his physique has been pretty good since The Town.









I must say this casting caught me by surprise because I thought he had swore off playing superhero roles after DD, but he stepped up to the challenge. Which actually isn't surprising considering the fact that he could have easily rolled over and played dead in the early 2000's, but resurrected his career like a champ. Says a lot about his character.

Not Snyder. He is capable of visually. Not the storytelling which is way more important IMO.
