Who says Batman has to growl? Just becaudse we got an angry gruff Batman with Bale doesnt mean this older, worn out Batman will be that way. Hopefully by this supposed later point in his career, he has learned that silent sometimes is more intimidating. Keaton didnt growl. i think Bale was prety much the only one to make that a big part of the film Batman persona.

This time around, I would prefer a more normal, but gravelly voice (similar to Bruce Greenwood's or Jason O'Mara's) or even a whisper.

Exactly! The only really intmidating parts of Bales performance to me were when he was silent surprising criminals and or course the demon bat...sooo cool! A stupid question: was that Bale acting in the demon bat make-up?

SOME QUOTES FROM SNYDER ABOUT CHOOSING AFFLECK AS BATMAN.
Snyder talking about Affleck as Batman.

Quote:
Zack Snyder spoke to French outlet, Popcorn Magazine to promote 300: Rise of an Empire but the conversation inevitably turned to Batman vs Superman. On Ben Affleck's Caped Crusader, Snyder reiterated that the decision to hire Affleck was based on the actor's ability to accurately portray the dual role of a scarred and weary Batman once night falls and an upbeat, friendly Bruce Wayne while in the public eye. "Ben brings an interesting counterweight to the performance of Henry [Cavill's] Superman. [Affleck] has the experience necessary to paint the picture of an older and more [advanced] man than Clark Kent, [one] who bears the scars of a seasoned vigilante while [simultaneously] retaining the charm that Bruce Wayne deploys when present in the world." Snyder also reiterated to the French magazine that the film will be influenced by Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns but won't be a direct adaptation.

batman shouldnt need to growl to be an effective Batman. A silent crazy smile while emerging from the shadows would be chilling...especially if they can incorporate the glowing white eyes effectively. Or maybe even the reverse- crazy silent smile while being engulfed by the shadows, leaving only white glowing eyes staring back- then just blackness...goosebumps!

Just like anyone else, I think his voice should sound different depending on what he's trying to achieve.

A conversational voice should sound different from yelling at someone to freak them out into telling them what you want to know and different from using a lower voice to freak them out about what you might do to them.

How else can you explain that he knows without a doubt what Affleck will sound like as Batman and how everyone will react to it?

I look forward to seeing you proven wrong since it appears you've already made up your mind about the casting, rather than wait until you know...actually seeing material of Affleck playing Batman.

He's from an alternative, bizarro future timeline where Affleck failed, ala how The Doctor could have died on Trenzalore but instead was granted a new regeneration cycle and endured.

I just hope Ben goes for a lowered voice like Keaton or Conroy did. I'm a fan of Bale's Batman voice too but a lot of people make fun of it and Ben doesn't need to add any more fuel to his critics' fire when he takes on this role.

I would like this, too. When or if he does raise his voice, you jump.

I hope it's muddled and distorted more than Bale's.

This is definitely what I would like to see too.

Out of the dozens who have attempted the bat-voice, Bale is the only one to have attempted...whatever it was he was doing, to divided reactions. Probability is on the side Ben will opt for the common presentation that the Bat-voice is the real voice, and thus no overly theatrical performance will accompany it.

*Whoooooooooooosh*

I just got back from the future...man we were so wrong...Affleck completely nails it and becomes the second comic book actor to win an Oscar. I don't want to give too much away but if you think this movie is leading towards Darkseid...you are wrong...it's leading towards a showdown with Starro...played by Benedict Cumberbatch

I thought rule #1 was to feel stuff with your bones? That rule applies to all other rules until you reach #162.

Till date The Incredibles is the only superhero film to get a screenplay Oscar nomination. I don't think this film will change that.
