As image comparisons show, Affleck strongly evokes the Arkham City Bruce Wayne. Strongly. Bruce Wayne is a well known public figure in Gotham. Ben Affleck is a well known actor in Hollywood. I think it plays. The Fallon interview shows me he has the fun charm for that side of things.

I just can't get behind this casting. I just don't see why Affleck would be a good choice. I will have to be made a believer. To me he was one of the worst choices.

I prefer Affleck over other rumored casting choices, never liked Josh Brolin or Jon Hamm or Gerard Butler.

Has Bale commented yet on Affleck's casting ?

Just like some fans wanted Michael O'Hearn to play Superman, though Adkins has bit more acting experience than O'Hearn, he is not considered as a genuine actor.

Affleck was never my first choice. Nor second or third. But I'm sure he'll nail it, especially if they let him influence the character and the writing.

Just sucks that he's taller than Cavill.

I am sure that two inches height difference can be minimized by camera angles, height increasing shoes and CGI techniques.

It boggles the mind that people still go on about height differences as if they'll matter a jot in the final film. There was a whole movement about how Tom Hardy was far too short to play Bane and it would ruin the character. I even made a bet at the time that if a single review mentioned Hardy's height as a detriment to his performance, I'd go see the film at the cinema dressed as Burt Ward Robin. Needless to say that didn't happen.

So Affleck is 3 inches taller than Cavill. That's the height of a GI Joe figure. Cavill's hardly gonna look like a hobbit.

I wouldn't even mind if Batman still ends up taller in the Movie than Supes. I think he should get all the psychological advantage that he can. Bats is the human without powers, he needs to be frightening and imposing on first glance.

Scott Adkins as Batman would be one of my first choices if I was joking about who should play Batman. The dude can't act for the sake of his life. Stuntmen are best when they are used as... stuntmen.

Yeah, as I was watching I was astounded he didn't mention the inevitable "how great it's going to be working with Cavill" line. And no mention of Superman?

Strange, but that's how big Batman is. And right now Affleck is WB's big gun. He can thump Snyder/Goyer in the nose anytime he wants to.

Affleck isn't doing this for the money, he's doing it because he has guaranteed money to make x amount of his films. It's what he does now.

That seems like a pretty heavy, mature Batman vibe to me, but I've been very impressed with Cavill's "owning" Superman in interviews. Snyder/WB/DC has obviously sold him on being the beginning of the new DC universe on film.

So I think Affleck is one hell of a counterweight. I hope Geoff Johns can keep everyone from completely screwing all of this up. Guy's got a mouth, lol.

Can't act? That is just not true.

True, be we have the right to express our opinion and call people on their BS when they say silly stuff like the man can't act, or read things into interviews that just isn't there simply because he was chosen and their guy wasn't. Express your opinion about him all you like, but don't tell lies about him.

That's great. Gets me excited for the premiere because everyone is going to have on their Batman and Superman shirts depending on who's "side" they're on. Gonna be so much fun. I'll probably end up wearing a Superman/Batman shirt.

what would be interesting is if Marketing picked up on that and played up the whole "who will win aspect/ Team Batman or Team Superman".

While people are entitled to think what they want about Affleck's suitability for the role, it is really weird to see people trash Ben Affleck's casting because he's not an incredible, transcendent actor, only to then back someone like Scott Adkins, a glorified stuntman who you'd be hard-pressed to find delivering a noteworty acting performance anywhere. Thinking Affleck's not good enough an actor is one thing, feeling the need to have someone with the physicality of Adkins in the role is another, but "I hate Ben Affleck for Batman because he's a bad actor, so I want Scott Adkins for the role?" Does... not... compute.

I think it was regret who said it was a bit like someone turning up their nose at a vacation to Venice because the views weren't scenic enough, only for them to then suggest a trip to Detroit instead.
