This will lead into Batman vs Superman.

Critics will probably knock it for the same reasons as MOS. Ill predict it now that it will get slightly better ratings than MOS due to no alien invasion/fights where buildings are totaled along with innocent civilians getting killed. They'll say batman saved this movie from being a worse disaster than MOS. BUT like I said it will still get a lower rating than a lot of the recent comic book movies. Probably due to a hidden agenda. You know..not liking Affleck as much as Bale (even if his Batman is badass)....not liking Snyder's pacing or too much action blah blah.

Im sure once Affleck directs his own solo film, it will be the opposite. They'll be praising the movie. But for this, it's a whole different story. It's all because of Goyer and Snyder's reputation.

The general audience? I think you'll get some nitpicks from people who refuse to accept Affleck. Maybe they genuinely wont like his Bruce Wayne "he's not Bruce, it's just Affleck being...well...Affleck". But I truly believe that the majority of the GA will like the movie more than MOS and be quite surprised with Ben's performance. I think Batman will be the coolest we've ever seen him visually and that will be enough to win over the GA. That's my prediction.

It will make more money, some better reviews and the hardcore Bat-fans will think it's the closest thing to the source material they've ever seen. But the true lovers of filmmaking and/or Nolan's trilogy will pick on it for being more of a popcorn CG driven 3D Batman (/Superman) movie in comparison. They'll say it's not as well written or directed. But still an enjoyable summer blockbuster.

Either way the lovers and haters will still want to see more of what Affleck has to offer. It will get a sequel and WB wins no matter what the critics say.
Absolutely. It's unbelivable how closed minded critics are about new changes are in films like these. If people are ok with a new James Bond every few years then people should learn to accept changes with the superhero version of him. Sometimes I wish I could just sit them down and tell them to watch episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, then they'll realise how Batman should be more like. Just for once I'd like to see a critic eat their own words about how great the Dark Knight Trilogy really is. Hopefully those "true lovers of filmmaking and/or Nolan's trilogy" are also fans of Argo and then all their Argo-ments can be invalid when the time comes.

Same average rating as Incredible Hulk on RT (6.2) despite a lower tomatometer (57% vs 67%), a movie that people cite as one of the many examples of MCU 'brilliance'.

It says that for these Marvel films, most critics more or less thought the same way: they're average to good. For MOS, it was more divided. Some loved it, some hated it.
People site Incredible Hulk as an example of Marvel brilliance? LOL good lord. That movie sucked hard.

MCU fans think EVERY film made by the company is an example of """brilliance""".

Top Critic Rating for MOS is 6.2/10 against 5.8/10 for TIH.

So, MOS is ahead of TIH.

As for SVB movie, casting of Ben Affleck is a good move, that will surely result in more favorable reviews than it would get by casting of someone like (say) Joe Manganiello or Matthew Goode as Batman.

It's true though. the Avengers has cast such a positive halo effect on the marvel universe.

If Goode did good, then the critics would recognize him for the role.

As for Affleck, he should do a bunch of writing for this film if he can. Or at least tell Goyer why a scene doesn't work

And any advice he can give for directing can only help

I tend to think Affleck will have some say in how Batman is portrayed here.
