For some reason and I know its ridiculously petty but all I could think about in the opening 20 minutes or so of MOS was the scene where the guy tries to push him in the bar and goes flying. Yet on the boat a guy actually tackles him to the ground.

Ben Affleck is a decent actor, has the looks to play Batman and Bruce Wayne, so i don´t think he is a bad choice. But is he the best possible choice? No! Far from that. And after Bale, it´s gonna be a downgrade. You can say whatever you want, but Bale is just a superior actor.

That's an odd thing about Superman: he might be uber strong and everything, but he still presumably weighs about the same as an ordinary man, in which case someone should be able to push him.

Best not to think about it.

I think he rolled with it....remember in the bar, he wasn't baking down, and he was about to let that guy have it, until the girl made Clark catch his senses

I think that moment on the boat was about Clark allowing that guy to shove him because he knew that equipment was going to fall, so he put himself in position tto allow himmself to be saved by someone else so he would not have to openly use his poweres. That's how I took it. I din't think a guy who was unmoved by cars landing on him in the Zod fight, who produces the physical forces that can shatter and bend steel can be tackled by a human being, not barring Kryptonite being around, of course.

I think when he felt the man he leave the man move him or put his strenght(clark's) to help him.. but your theory is great though

i think it has more to do with Clark just weighing like a normal person...otherwise vehicles couldnt move him around. I think he can be pushed and shoved out the way but if he sets himself like in the bar scene he can't be moved.

I don't understand some peoples misgivings about Ben, really. I'm not going to say he was in a lot of good films in the early part of his career. Those projects were not well chosen by him, I will grant that. But was he a bad actor in the material given to him? My take is he wasn't. As for people citing DD? Well that is bad casting. Not because Ben is a bad actor, but because, shock of shocks, some actors are better suited for some roles than others. I never would have cast Ben as Matt Murdock in a million years just on his physical prescence alone. Ben is a big guy, DD is small and agile and wirey.

I think given his growth as an actor over time and the elements he brings to the table he is more than capable off giving us a crackerjack performance all around, whether it's as avunvular and charming "public" Bruce or driven and haunted Batman. I suspect we could be in for quite the treat. It may even some say "Christian who?"

To me, if Affleck gets to portray a better characterized/comics accurate version, and nails the VOICE, he'll already have been a better Batman. Though I think Bale will probably have portrayed better Wayne.

Actually Affleck looks like Bruce Wayne more than any other actor, so I think if anything it's a lock that he'll nail the Bruce part. (although that was definitely Bale's shining moment)

I do think what Bale brought to the role was unique and that's what made it so great, It's what made Keaton great too, because he took it in a different approach. I fear Snyder will try too hard to go fan pandering mode again and just give us a carbon copy of what's in the comics, and while a lot of fans would like that, I'd consider it a huge creative step down for a franchise that has always taken huge risks.

Ive thought on this in a lot of Superman productions, most recently on Smallville. How exactly can he prevent people who hit him from getting hurt.
