They could release two teaser trailers: one from Superman's perspective, presenting Batman as the bad guy, and one from Batman's perspective, presenting Superman as the bad guy.

Ben sounds very enthusiastic about the role and the character, I have a lot of excitement to see what he's going to do with it.

I'm all for disagreement and debate, and for calling people out for being flat-out wrong if you feel that way. I just don't like it when someone voices a dissenting opinion and they're immediately pounced upon with accusations of being a troll or face palm/shut your mouth gifs.

I'm glad Affleck finally talked about accepting the role. I was worried WB had him under a gag order for a while, that's how silent he was on that.

He seems really happy and enthusiastic about it, so I think he made sure there was a script he could get behind. He still doesn't look like a Batman type, but I'm still willing to let his work in the movie speak for itself.

I saw the Town again the other night, and Affleck is a REALLY big guy. He'll at least be physically imposing like Batman. I wonder what kind of voice he going to go with and how much he will differentiate his Bruce voice from his Batman voice. I really liked that Bale tried to make them so different from each other, even if it went a tad too far sometimes.

I'm expecting that actually. Seems like too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Good idea. But it doesn't have to necessarily show the other as a "bad guy" in their respective trailers. Just show it from their perspective.

Superman doesn't want vigilante justice in his city and Batman doesn't want a dangerous, extraterrestrial God to "destroy the planet and put people in harms way". Boom.

Money would definitely be an enticing factor. This will by far, BY FAR, be the biggest payday of his career either as a writer or director or actor.

He tried his hand at blockbuster films, he failed. That is why he moved to smaller films and directing where he supposedly flourished. So it ain't like he's rolling in money.

Batman will make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. He won't get Downey like paychecks right away but if the movies are successful, he could head towards that.

This is basically his second chance to be a big blockbuster star.

Fairness? I think it veers to the side of rabid fanboyism and the same argument could apply to you. But whatever. We each can think what we want and I am sure so can you.

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.
Here's the thing. Human beings are not cattle. Preference of any kind is never factual, nor can be. There is no objectivity of any kind in preference.

Say you prefer A as opposed to B, and 10000 people prefer B as opposed to A, that doesn't mean its a fact that B is better than A. Your preference remains AS WEIGHTY AS that of a 10000 people because again there is nothing factual here, only subjective opinions.

Anybody can want or prefer anything over anything else. Modern culture would like you to believe that humans are indeed cattle and the purpose of life is a furious dash towards consensus and conformity but that's not it.

Of course all this might be beyond the comprehension of fanboys but its a modern malaise of society that can't be helped it seems.

Well if you dislike someone, post reasons why. If you are just going to make a flippant remark, then expect a flippant response back. If you post thoughtful criticism's and concerns, then the response back should be good responses. I mean in a perfect world at least.

I'm late on this, but a significant distinguishing factor on this body fat charts seems to be that obese people are generally photographed crudely on cell phones, while muscle maries tend to be covered in oil and standing under spotlights.
