i don't remember brolin saying he auditioned. i remember reading that he talked to zack about it, but that's about it. regardless, I'm sure his casting wasn't just about batman. in fact, I'd guess that the whole dc universe expanding has to do with captaining that enterprise. ben's gonna make life easier for the dccu.

Man.. the script was great they were right... disapointed were only the purists that wanted smth the same as 70 years ago... the movie turned out and ended up being awesome and one of the best of the genre.. some guys have to DEAL WITH IT

So you heard somewhere that he didn't audition and you believe it, but someone tells you he did audition and you don't believe it? So you'll just believe any negative news without question. Don't you think your hatred is clouding you judgement?

Oh, and using the term fanboy to try to lessen the validity of someone else's opinion is the last resort of someone who has nothing to add to a debate.
Which is why the poll in this thread really needs a middle-ground option - something akin to 'don't know'/'wait and see approach'. Especially at this stage, when there's so little we know about the movie.

Agreed. I personally see no reason why he couldn't do a stellar job,, but I can't really say for sure until It happens. I suppose it's too late to change the poll, isn't it? Perhaps start a new one?

I would argue the whole Adkins things, but why bother? It was about 2 pages ago, but glorified stuntman???



Hmmm.... I don't remember him ever being that. He's nothing like someone like Ray Park. Maybe people need to go look at his filmography before making ridiculous "points" like that. Still trying to figure out the whole "B-movie thing" like he wasn't in The Bourne Ultimatum & Zero Dark Thirty. Like that should even matter anyway. Gee, I wonder how many people were against Hemsworth before Thor (hell, he did the Red Dawn remake & The Perfect Getaway before that & one wasn't even released until after Thor). Its not like he had a superb filmography at that point. People only knew Cavill from Immortals before Superman. That's it. I don't think there is a person that knew of another movie he was in before that. So therefore, that argument can be flushed. The good actor/bad actor thing is all opinion anyway. It's people that think Ben Affleck can't act so who's right? No one. Flush that point as well...

I said it before & I'll say it again: you don't need a major name to sell an iconic character like most comic book characters. In fact, it has been shown that unknowns have worked since... oh.... some guy that CAN'T act, that we hadn't heard of named Hugh Jackman. Reeve, Cavill, Routh, Jackman, Hemsworth, Hiddleston, etc. None of those names were in "big" films or major stars before their comic book roles. Hell, Bale wasn't huge either. Most people knew him from American Psycho & Equilibrium before Batman & that's it. You ask me who should play Black Panther & I'll say Michael Jai White. For the same reasons: upcoming actor, great look, already in peak physical shape so no need for years of training or a stunt double/fight choreographer, etc. The fact that he & Adkins can fight like the characters and/or are martial artists would have just been the cherry on top of it all. Why wouldn't I want either one of them to play a badass comic book character??? That's what fan boys should be asking. Of course I mentioned Jai White playing BP in an article on this site & a poster commented that he couldn't act the part & said Morris Chestnut or Idris Elba should do it.



I call it the 'only established actors can play the characters I like' rule when its convenient to their argument . Of course this is all opinion anyway when all is said & done. I know that I damn sure thought some of the weird indie guys other people picked for Bruce Wayne/Batman were terrible choices. I didn't find the time to mock or challenge them about their fantasy choices however.

Oh well, guess I completely contradicted that first sentence of my post

I put off watching "Jersey Girl" because of it's bad rep. but it does show a lot of emotion from Affleck and the movie is simple but heartfelt. It's a good movie.

I watched more of his movies after the Batman announcement but I will not watch "Gigli" ever. I watched "The Company Men" which was pretty good, and I watched "Hollywoodland" again which is of course more fun to see because of the Superman connection, as well as seeing life for an actor in Hollywood. Plus it was cool to see his scenes with Diane Lane.

But was Adkins the star of Zero Dark Thirty? I honestly forgot he was even in it. To be honest, I don't even remember seeing him.

I agree. It was cute and heartfelt flick. Kind of sad that even Kevin himself has somewhat disowned it.

On the latest Fatman on Batman, Kevin was saying that a couple years back, Time Magazine was doing a piece of Ben and interviewing various directors he'd worked with. Ben shot Kevin an e-mail asking him to kindly not bring up Jersey Girl in his interview. Kevin wrote back saying, "I won't...but..." and proceeded to write what he called one of the most beautiful e-mails he'd ever written, basically just worshiping Affleck and telling him he's not nothing to be ashamed of. Ben wrote back, "Thanks man...but please, don't bring it up."

Lol, idk, kinda made Ben seem kind of like a jerk and overly concerned with his image. It's like get over it man...you've made FAR worse movies than Jersey Girl. Maybe it's the whole Bennifer thing that makes it a touchy topic for him.

I heard that Smith podcast and Ben shouldn't be ashamed of "Jersey Girl". But it did suffer from the "Gigli" fallout and Smith probably doesn't like that people didn't even go and see it because of the Bennifer thing.

I have noticed that Affleck is sensitive about the bad part of his career, and "Jersey Girl" is a part of it, when it really shouldn't be. I've seen him sensitive about that whole time in his life even during an Ellen DeGeneres interview. And even she said, as an outsider, that she didn't realise it was that bad back then.

Kinda crazy to think he's older than both of the last two Batman actors we've gotten.
