So yea, he actually does "look so Bruce Wayne!"...
Exactly. It's not like this is the first time we've seen Bruce Wayne portrayed by an actor with dark hair and a decent build; Bale's hair color was maybe a couple of shades lighter than Affleck's. As good as our former on-screen Batman was, though, he never quite looked like his comic book counterpart.

I think just about all of Affleck's recent predecessors in the role have a more distinctive appearance than he does: Bale has hawkish features; Keaton and Kilmer are almost infamous for their sort of "pouty" look under the cowl (a fact not lost on the satirical publication, Mad magazine). Affleck, however, much like a comic book drawing, has this kind of square-jawed, generic countenance.

I can't speak for everyone, but, for me, that's why the guy looks so much like Bruce Wayne/Batman. As he continues to improve on his physicality through exercise and such, said resemblance will naturally be taken a few steps further. That could explain some of the positive reaction (to newer pics) we tend to see on the boards of late.

His physical improvements are definitely helping, but I think it was the picture of the Batsuit that did it. Even hardened critics of Affleck's choice admitted that he looks damn near perfect in the cowl. And I think that just started a spread of optimism and positivity regarding Affleck. People started making the pizza jokes less, there was less hand-wringing, and the sun shined just a little brighter each morning.

^ I've actually noticed people come around (at least in this particular thread) even before the official pic was released.

Hmph, hadn't seen the new pics. Just went back a few pages.

That's our guy. Shedding some of the chubbiness in his face too.

I'm hyped to see his performance more than ever now.

really? It looks to me that he really fills the suit out. Add an inch or two for the suit and that's pretty much him. The abs are really the only thing I don't know about.

Btw, in that second pic he really does have that (albeit, smaller of course) frame of TDKR's batman.

Yeah but that's all irrelevant because he's Ben Affleck.

I'm as excited as the next guy about Ben's current look (very BW indeed) and obviously the Batsuit. But to make Ben out to be this hulking dude is just ridiculous. He's a big guy but he's not as big as Cavill and even Cavill wasn't as big as say a pro-wrestler, which is what I would equate to being "diesel."

I agree Affleck is big, but I haven't seen any "diesel" images of him yet. I mean that physique on his 6'3"-6'4" frame is perfect for his role here, but I'd agree with lukebrodyg that Cavill was diesel for MoS. Another example would be Dwayne Johnson in pretty much any role of his...I mean he's 6'5" and monstrously huge! Ben looks great though!

Sorry, I don't only equate the word "diesel" with pro wrestlers, and niether should you.

Ben's clearly put on a good amount of muscle mass in recent weeks. His traps look big, and his arms have gotten bigger and more defined. Compared to how he looked just a few months ago, I can confidently say that he's looking diesel now. He looks even more jacked with the musculature of the new Batsuit.

He looks better, but not "diesel" by any means.

He's not even close to the physique Cavill has achieved.

In Ben's defense - everytime we are seeing Cavill shirtless in the movie and on the behind the scenes DVD footage- they were all scenes where he either just got done working out to prepare for a shirtless scene or doing some workouts to show how big he got during his training regiment. Anyone who works out a ton knows that you are your biggest when you are just finishing a workout and your muscles are pumped with blood. Ben looks pretty big in these candid shots and what i really like seeing is the vein on his bicep which means his body fat % is low. what that means is that when he is doing a workout and gets a "pump", his muscles will really look full and swollen.

i think he will compare well to Cavill in a movie scene shirtless if they are both pumped.

...The pic of Cavill I posted for comparison is also a candid pic. Not a shirtless scene with a pump, lighting, etc.

From both of their recent candid pics, it's clear that Cavill is on a whole different level.

Well I do because generally speaking they are WAY bigger than Affleck or Cavil.

His arms have gotten more defined but not bigger and since we've never seen (or at least I haven't on these boards) any shirtless or tank top pics of Affleck, you can't (and shouldn't ) really assume his traps are bigger either.
