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.

Well Fallon talked about Comic Con, you know Ben is going to just kill it at Comic con, this will be first wouldn't it?

Just imagine affleck repel down a rope in full arkham gear into Hall H. That would make us nerds go stupid crazy.

It's a shame, watching that video again, it seems like Ben Affleck was up for talking more about it, but Jimmy Fallon kinda cut him off with the "Sorry we're outta time" spiel to cut to commercials.

And yeah, Jersey Girl gets a bad rep IMO. Maybe it's my Kevin Smith bias, but I really liked that movie. It was sincere and heartfelt and I liked Affleck in it.

At this point if you say you don't like the casting, people act like you're crazy. The backlash backfired.

That's because all the haterz lost steam right after the announcement. Also, SHH is one of the brighter spots on the net

This is a point I'd been meaning to make, but couldn't think of an eloquent way to word it. It's like, the backlash against Ben Affleck was SO extreme and SO vitriolic, that it caused this backlash-against-the-backlash, with people who might otherwise have been on the fence saying, "Hey, wait a minute now, give the poor guy a chance," and editorials about how the hyperbolic hatric was unjustified.

I don't mind people not liking the casting, I'd just like to hear your reasons. If your not going to offer up more than just 'he sucks', then be prepared for the backlash.

Well, the likers turned to lovers, the "meh" people became likers, and the haters..lost their voice

Generally speaking :P

Most of the backlash has backfired. Just wait till the first photo drops. Then the trailer(s).

First comes the fanboy rage from everything that feels off (THIS COSTUME SUX) then the trailer (ooh) then the advance reviews (almost always positive) then the early praise from the novelty of the film..followed by a more logical consensus..followed by another backlash

Then people think of all the little moments they didn't like and await the reboot, while the other fans want their loved franchise(s) to continue into eternity.

Why I don't like it. They went with an older Batman. They gave him the role without even auditioning like they could care less about talent, but more a name. I hated gone baby gone and the town was a fake departed, with cheese on top. In every movie he is the same guy. Same voice same mannerisms, everything. I actually liked him as daredevil, but this is Batman. I don't mind him playing a B level superhero. I wanted someone who was unknown and almost think they were really Bruce Wayne. Same with cavil, Hemsworth, hiddleston, to a lesser extent Evans. I'll gladly eat my words, but as of today, I'm not on board.

1. 41 is not that old
2. Yeah he did audition so did Brolin and a few others He beat them out sorry.
3. Snyder was impressed with him
4. Opinions are fine I would recommend check out Company men and Changing lanes

Well my take on the whole backlash thing is you simply lack any form of common sense to defend or "hate" on something that hasn't even begun filming. No one has seen anything yet. No one can judge or be right or wrong yet. Therefore, if you're attacking people b/c you hate Ben Affleck as Batman:



If you attack people b/c someone STILL doesn't like the idea of Ben Affleck as Batman:



I was lucky in that I haven't seen very many negative things at all about the casting. I've avoided all the vitriol on YouTube & I don't even have a Twitter account. Literally everything about the casting I've read here or one of the 3 other sites I go to for pop culture/comic/geek stuff & most of that's been positive. Positive to the point where its the exact opposite almost, a person can't say they don't like it or still don't care for the casting w/o a group doing exactly what the other side just did. To me, that's still idiotic, no matter the position.

I did just read about the whole controversy in the new Entertainment Weekly. They have a really good article about the whole deal. I didn't know the numbers, but they wrote that 96,088 tweets came out after the announcement & 71% were negative. 75,000 petitions were signed in the first two days for the studio to reconsider. When I read about stuff like that, it sorta makes me pull for Affleck more. However, not to the point were I want to be anything like those people, meaning I'm in wait & see mode. I can careless about "attacking" or defending" Affleck against someone that doesn't like the idea/him. I'm seeing it regardless so what someone else thinks or comments on doesn't faze me. I just hope all this doesn't turn out like MOS. There was all this positivity on here about MOS when the trailers hit, then those same people seemed to do a 360 & consistently posted about hating the movie when it came out.
