I heard that it was evil. I'll not watch it. Thinking about it, dying at the hands of J-Lo could be a good way to die, it's a much better choice than 'buried alive with Ross Mathews'!

Okay,so Pearl Harbour it is then!

I'm kinda tempted to see Gigli, to see if it can possibly be as AWFUL as everyone says it is. But I'm afraid to, in case it's so terrible it ruins Affleck for me forever and makes me terminally unable to view him as Batman.

Look, I know damn well he could be utter crap as Batman, or he could be the bets Batman ever, I won't know until I actually see him in the role. If I were a fanboy I would say he WILL BE the best evar, and I am not saying that. At least I am admitting the possibility he could suck bad at it.
Oh, and using the term fanboy to try to lessen the validity of someone else's opinion is the last resort of someone who has nothing to add to a debate.

Thanks TPC.

It seems like Ben thinks WF is going to be great and he seems highly enthusiastic.

That's awesome!

You knows he's got stuff to prove when high schoolers don't approve of him.

Affleck's a funny dude. He has a good sense of humor but in recent years he takes his work more seriously. I can see it in him that he'll prove a lot of people wrong. Just like Keaton did.

I cant say im as excited as I thought I would be, but im curious about Batman vs Superman. It's going to take me seeing a wicked Affleck photo under the cowl, in the new suit, to get me "excited". The trailers might do it as well.

Im more stoked to see the first solo film than BvS. Affleck in this crossover is just a taste test.

Cavill was doing none of these things, he was extremely pale, very hairy, in very flat drab lighting (actually horrible lighting) and not flexing at all. It is entirely different circumstances. He was just playing a normal man stealing some clothes and running away. I daresay you would see much more of his muscle definition if he did a body building photo shoot with all the bells and whistles.

But this much is certain he had low body fat. Look at the pictures below.









Abs are bulging but look at the arms. Look at the separation between the biceps and the delts, and the pecs and the delts, he is very sharply cut. This kind of sharp appearance comes with low body fat. So even though he might not be 3%, he's definitely single digit.

And both Twight, Snyder and Cavill claimed that figure so it wouldn't be very far off the mark. Cavill very widely claimed that he was at 6% body fat in Immortals. And he looks much much sharply defined in MOS. So he might be around that number.

But remember, the physiques of body builders and actors are presented in extremely different circumstances. It is actually a very disadvantageous way for the actors to present their results, because they just do an incidental scene in films.

These are all good points. Well said.
