likewise, and i can legitimately say, that I've never gone out of my way to watch an affleck film prior to that, he pretty much rubbed me the same way that those who dislike the casting did.

watched the town, argo, hollywoodland and i was sold. i saw some of those grey shades of bruce wayne in those films. playboy bruce wayne is totally in his wheelhouse personally, as anyone who's seen his interviews can vouch. he's a very charming guy.

as far as batman's concerned, all he's got to do is get the batvoice down. snyder would take care of the rest.

Not so much in front...lol

But again, I'm just skeptical because he does seem like an odd choice.

Yeah, all he really needs to nail down is the voice and he's good to go. And has Snyder ever really had any trouble when it comes to casting?

I think it's safe to assume Affleck being Batman probably was part of a deal for him to continue making films at WB that can win Oscars and help with the dick measuring people like to do in Hollywood.

Well yeah but that occurs with most actors. Most A-listers have some god awful films or performances in their past. Affleck has gone through his share of awfulness sure but he has definitely matured for the better in the film industry.

Well...that's a good look, but it's his ability in front of the camera. If he just stood there like this pic...then yes. He is perfect.

Reality is though, this is being headed by Snyder and Goyer. Hardly the type of artists you'd expect to churn out that sort of characterization.
I'm in a holding pattern, but I disagree about Bale. His performance had so many nuanced aspects. It was amazing. When I watch those movies again I always see something new from him that I didn't see the first few times.

Synder can be a hit and miss director himself. I suppose he'll let Ben take over when it comes time to that...lol

Holy Crap! Paulo from Lost was Xerxes?

I thought that was a 7 foot black actor that played him

MIND BLOWN



Also Dominic West would make a good Luthor.

Maybe it's my personal gripe, but I thought Ozymandias and Silk Spectre were horribly miscast (I would've preferred someone with gravitas and the chops to play Veidt/Ozymandias). Aside from that, he does cast pretty well.

Yeah I agree with you there.

I always saw Ozy as having a detached charm and charisma about him, sort of like the wit of Carl Sagan.

In the movie he was a depressive sad sack.

Wow...that's all I know him from. I don't even remember him from 300. Hmmm...I recently watched The Wire and loved him. McNulty was awesome!

I wasn't a fan of Watchmen, but I really enjoyed MOS and 300. Sucker Punch...couldn't make it through the first 5 minutes.

Yeah. He's not great at casting women. Sometimes he lucks out but I don't think he takes many actresses seriously.

Amy Adams is a good exception though

Think of it as a 2 hour music video and you'll love it.

As a piece of storytelling it totally sucks though.
