With that said I think Affleck is going through a different type of transformation as an actor. Some actors take time to get comfortable and good at their craft and I believe Affleck has been improving for a while now.

I think Affleck getting into Directing is the best thing that could have happened to his acting.

Before I watched those... Yeah, I was mad.

Watch state of play and company man as well (or at least clips)

Random comment: So I just finished playing the new Arkham game, and I can't tell you how many moments I had during the game in which the character looked exactly like Affleck. I used the Noel suit as soon as I finished the game just to get a sense of what we might see soon. Just thought I'd share.

I'd like a scene like this, just to show how fearless and intimidating Batman can be, and that although Clark is insanely powerful, he still has his doubts/fears due to him being new to being a hero.

Basically Bats has to give off the impression that he's not afraid nor in awe of Supes like everybody else he's met.

I love that issue. No Mans Land was so epic.

They sort of adapted it for Justice League Doom. They used Vandal instead of Ra's though and lost the whole everyone forgets how to read plot.

Comic was way better I though.

I thought JL: Doom was pretty good. Though it doesn't have the same vibe as the comic.

It’s the perfect Justice League tale for me. The one non super powered member is surely the one who doesn’t belong, right? Wrong. He stakes his claim as the most dangerous of all because of this. A strategic master, right down to correctly guessing how all the members will vote at the end. Bats is for the team but can also be against the team if the situation ever arises.

General fans that have seen Affleck in Argo: "I can totally see him as Bruce/Batman" Fans that just remember him from 10 year old Daredevil: "It will never work."

It's not like the other Batmen were doing some award winning work in any of these films. (Yes Nolan fans my comment includes Bale). So it's not like I think Affleck is going to be terrible, I'm just leery he'll be blandish.

I personally think Ben is going to do just fine.

People keep bringing up and comparing his casting to that of Heath Ledger but I don't compare Ben's overall reactions to Heaths casting at all.

This all brings me back to when Michael Keaton was cast as Batman for the 1989 movie. comic book fans, even people from the general audience, almost everyone was outraged by Keaton being cast for the role. People were saying "ohh... so Mr. Mom is going to be Batman now" or "that crazy guy is from Beetlejuice is going to be batman now?"
Sound familiar? I think it does.........."oh that guy from the Jay and Silent Bob movies is going to be Batman now" or "wait Daredevil is going to be batman now?"

I'm just saying, I think people really need to give him a chance. Cant change the fact that he has been cast. I personally think Ben is going to do a great job and I'm looking forward to it. I wish him the best I really do. If Michael Keaton was able to surprise most everybody and his interpretation was as well received as it was considering he was mostly a type cast actor before hand. I think Ben has a very, very good chance to surprise all the naysayers and supporters alike.

Have you seen The Town? That's the movie that makes me think he'll be a good Batman.

Yeah just give Batman some time to prep and he'll take care of any asteroids coming our way.

The only role that will determine if Ben will be good as Batman is Batman.

Stop it with the logic. It's very off-putting.
