In terms of the continued internet hate, I feel like the casting of Affleck for me was perfect timing for when I heard it. Not long before the news I had finally seen him in Argo. The maturity of his acting was much better and it was one of the few times I didn't feel like I was just watching "Ben Affleck" That is what made me believe if the story is good, he could pull this off. I'm actually surprised at how much outrage there has been over... Ben.

The interest in the movie is going to be huge.

Anticipation of the first picture of Ben in the Batsuit.
Anticipation of the first picture of the Batmobile.
Anticipation of the first picture of the first picture of Batman and Superman together.
First teaser.
First trailer.
I think this is going to be the hit of 2015.

I love Bale's anger. Love the trigger scene. It works for THAT batman, but Affleck's version seriously needs to remain calm at all times. Just like Conroy. If he can't do a super deep voice, they can always enhance it in post production.

For every love of that "angry" Batman there is hate... I Absolutely Hated It. It was, imo, very forced and distracting and took me out the movie every time and reminded me I was watching an actor trying to be tuff.

I never felt like he was trying to act tough. It had to do with disguising his voice and mainly about transforming into a creature..becoming a completely separate personality.

You cant exactly speak in a normal Conroy voice in live-action. I mean you could, and the fans would think of Conroy and if the voice is badass it'll sound cool but I honestly think it would take me out of the movie WAY more than Bale's growling if Batman sounded exactly like Bruce Wayne. Keaton did it well most of the time but even he had moments talking to Vikki Vale where I was like COME ON! IT'S BRUCE UNDER THE COWL! HOW CAN YOU NOT HEAR IT!?

It's no big deal but to me only Conroy can get away with normal speaking. He lowered his voice to make it deeper but it's literally the same voice. His voice is naturally deep anyway. I just don't buy that kind of thing when I see a movie.

That's why actors put on a whisper or a growl in the live-action batman movies. Keaton did it like I said, and Bale did as well. Affleck needs to lower his voice but remain calm. Make it a bit gravelly is just Batman's voice and how it's described. If Ben can never shout while having a lower register and even a slight whisper it would be awesome. Even face to face with a criminal and literally not saying a word while staring at him for like 10 seconds in the most evil way.....that would be beyond amazing.

Like I said, post-production would work. Kevin Smith said it. Explain an inner cowl function that distorts the voice maybe (really just working on it in POST). In a really creepy way. Id love that.

Yep, just some sort of voice modulator would be great. Have Affleck talk normal and calm, but change it up enough in post, so he sounds different. None of that unintelligible growling again please.

I liked it a lot in BB, but he also didn't scream at everyone like he did in the other movies. It was much more balanced. I wasn't a fan of it in TDK/TDKR, though.

I just watched that clip from the Daily Show where Jake Gyllenhaal talks about Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. It's funny, I was never particularly married to any actor getting the part before Ben Affleck was cast: I guess I feel like I already got my dream choice for Batman with Christian Bale so whoever comes next is gravy. But literally the only actor I ever suggested in the numerous casting threads was Jake Gyllenhaal. I think he's a very talented young actor, and is one of the few in his generation with the presence to really bring gravitas to that part. Though once it became apparent they were skewing older with their casting I knew he'd be ruled out.

I didn't mind it in BB and TDK, but in TDKR it felt so forced and sounded horrible.

He did plenty of yelling in Begins. But it was well set up, by showing Batman's assertiveness outside of interrogation sequences. Ironically, the only time I feel like they tried to show a Batman with a collected persona is in the Joker interrogation sequence. Though that does feel like a one person "good cop/bad cop routine" and Ledger kind of stole that scene.

While Ledger does rock that scene, I still loved how Bale handled it. You could feel how scared he was to lose another person he loved. It was genuine anger. Genuine fear.

The only time that angry growl worked for me was when he was dealing with Flass in BB. Using it on Joker or Bane didn't work simply because he wasn't in a position to freak them out. Plus, the voice just sucked at those times anyway.

I'd imagine Affleck sounding like what he did in DD. If we want to compare him Batman voice actors, I think William Baldwin's would be the closest just based on their natural voices. Maybe Rino Romano too.

I really, really hope that's not the case. That'd be pretty bad.

Speaking of Bat-voices, the guy who voices him on Beware The Batman is growing on me a lot. He's got a constant chip on his shoulder and it really comes through in the voice.

Batman being angry and scaring the crap out of criminals is in the comics, so I'm not sure why its a problem when Bale did it.

I brought up DD since Kevin Smith said Affleck did it since he assumed Batman on film was dead. So, I assumed that was his Batman voice.

I love Anthony Ruivivar's voice on the show and how much of a douche they make him as Batman. His lines are sometimes unintentionally (I think) hilarious.
