I think Bale looked amazing in Begins. Maybe a little too skinny and "sunken" in TDK and TDKR... TDKR made sense storywise (I guess you could argue TDK as well).

Acting wise, Affleck has huuuuge shoes to fill. There's no question.

I know!! It's actually really eerie. Almost as if "Ben Affleck" has been the hand-drawn face of Bruce Wayne in my mind my entire life, and I'm just now seeing a representation of that in live action. Like, that's the face I've always thought he should look like in the comics, like this unseen/impossible face. It's spooky.

Like... that's Batman. It just feels like Bruce Wayne/Batman, haha. I sound like a hippie.

It pains me to say this, but physically, it's a MASSIVE upgrade from this:

bale looked far too gaunt in the second and third films. he looked much more like wayne in the first.

affleck is looking fantastic. but that was never the worry. let's see if he can pull off BATMAN because he definitely can pull off wayne.

I think he will surprise people. The glare he's giving at the fuel station, for example.

Honestly, that's all he needs to do: channel his anger toward the paps; and we have our Batman.

Even though it was just a coincidence of Bale's role in the Fighter causing his gaunt appearance, it sort of works within the realistic confines of that universe. Being Batman would literally drain you physically and mentally to such a degree where you would go from looking young, fresh faced and handsome to appearing gaunt and older than your years.

For starters that is not reflected in the comics, Batman irrespective of what age or state he is, is almost always shown as impossibly buff and imposing - a physical specimen.

And besides, The Fighter would not effect Bale's appearance in TDK or TDKR. TDK and TDKR were shot in 2007 and 2011 respectively and The Fighter was shot in 2009. So it was 2 years removed from either film.

I think his gaunt and less than super appearence might simply be Nolan paying less attention to the physical attributes of a superhero, which is admittedly a more comic book aspect and Nolan never seemed to care about such things. Snyder on the other hand cares the world about the physical attributes of superheros and puts a lot of attention in that direction. Different schools of thought.

I'm more puzzled as to how a masked vigilante has a credit score. Gothcard must have pretty lax signup conditions.

I think it's effectively a blank cheque with no expiry. And a visual gag to the previous film.

I was apprehensive before. I wasn't that vocal about it because I thought I'd come around. It wasn't about his physique. It was more about his acting. I've been on board for a while though.

I do... Since his last movies.... Even if i think he is "only" a good actor.

But something tell me that he will blow away people.

He has motivation, that's for sure.
