You're not supposed to picture any actor as a character before they actually start performing it. That's what acting is.

That makes sense, but I'm thrown off because I could picture Bale as Batman before he was and I could picture Cavill as Supes.

But I'm not writing Affleck off because of this.

I think everyone is aware that all the actors are just going to pretend to be other people.

Thanks for pointing that out Llama.

It's his Bruce portrayal that worries me too.

I think I can envision it too...and that's what sort of worries me I think. I see him acting like he did in Boiler Room.

I watched Chasing Amy recently and he was good in that. I think he'll do fine, maybe not the best Batman ever but I dont think he'll be the worst either.

Exactly! Just have the costume department give him a fake belly to wear to get a reaction out of people.

Or better yet... have him not get caught outside while filming and then just come to SDCC dressed like this...

Affleck and Cavill can even act out the same scene from Miller's TDKR that they read at the last SDCC.

I think the score tries too hard, even if it is well done. Prefer Zimmer,and i also like Shirley Walkers versions of Elfmans music. As films, B89 is fairly watchable, BR i cant really stand.

There are some who absolutely hate any talk of Bale not being a great Batman but I've never hidden my feelings on the subject. He's a great actor but not a great Batman or Bruce Wayne IMHO. I find his performances in 2 out of 3 Batman films to be disappointing. I did enjoy how loose and fun he was in the 3rd film but that's probably because he got to play crazy retired Bruce Wayne.

He was decent overall but he can easily be topped, I have my doubts Affleck will be the man to do that but I'm obviously going to give the man a shot.

Alfred: Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman? You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn't come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Wendy's. Every fine evening, I'd sit there and order a Cheeseburger. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I'd see you there, with a Baconator Triple and maybe a couple of Chicken Nuggets. You wouldn't say anything to me, nor me to you. But we'd both know that you'd made it, that you were well fed. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except McDonalds and Burger King. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.

There were times throughout the entire TDK-trilogy that I completely forgot Batman was ever even in it and that I was supposed to care for the hero rather than villain. The cast was superb throughout and Bale was so highly up-staged throughout the series that it became more of an edge-on-your-seat type trilogy when the Heath Ledger's and Tom Hardy's shared the screen other than the man behind the cowl. I think that's one of the main reasons why Batman is so easy to pull the audience in, which is having one helluva cast around him, mot notably, his villains. They carry him IMHO. Superman? He doesn't necc have that luxury and basically needs to do the heavy lifting all by himself for people to latch and hang on.
