With Cavill in particular, I'm not really interested in whether or not he gave an "Oscar calibre" performance, because that's not necessary in this role. The challenge was to look and act like Superman, and Cavill absolutely embodied the character to the point where I don't feel like anyone could have offered a better performance than he did. The role of Superman isn't showy anyway.

I do have to take issue with your assessment of Ackerman's performance as Silk Spectre II, which seems a little hyperbolic. This is something I read in a lot of reviews of Watchmen, and for the life of me I can't understand people's criticisms. I'm not saying Ackerman is Meryl Streep, but I'm puzzled why people think it was such an awful performance. For me, she embodied the character, looked and acted the part and was perfectly convincing in her emotional scenes.

But really, this seems to be a problem across the board with superhero movies. Unless your name is Emma Stone, it almost always seems to be the female lead who is dismissed as the weakest link in superhero movies, often singled out for dismissal while the male actors win critical accolades. What I think this overlooks is the fact that the female leads in superhero movies are almost always saddled with the thankless role of "love interest", and there's only so much you can do with that.

Amy Adams is a good example. I thought she was the best Lois Lane yet, and yet a lot of people seem to have a problem with her performance when if anything, it's the screenwriting that would be more at fault. In that case, we should criticize Goyer, not Adams (of course, the point is moot if you're not a fan of Amy Adams in anything).

Anyway, I'm pretty confident Ben Affleck will offer a great performance as Batman. Snyder can do the dark vigilante thing (Rorschach), while Affleck was fine as Daredevil (whatever you thought of the movie itself) and is a huge Batman fan. So I'm not worried.
A wonderful post and I would continue the discussion but lets not violate the sanctity of this thread by our off topic posts any further.

I forget the issue, but there's a panel with him on trial for the murder of Vesper Fairchild; and the artist makes it very apparent that, even in the absence of his cape and cowl, it is Batman (not Bruce Wayne) standing in the courtroom before the judge and jury.

I think it's pretty reassuring that Affleck's guaranteed to put in a performance that tops his Daredevil performance. He wasn't bad at all as Daredevil, and knowing that he can only do a better job than he did there is nice.

I guess many of us will be seeing his job on Gone Girl, to see how he does it.

You're right, he is noticeably slimmer in the face. I wasn't concerned about that but now it's slimmer it's remarkable what a slight difference it makes to his overall Batman-ness.

I'm excited, I really think he's going to bring it. He's taking it seriously... well I guess he had to after the backlash...!

Yep, also excited to hear the bat-voice, but I think he will try to avoid sounding anything like Bale (as much as he can) cos you know everyone will be like 'ZOMG he totally stole that from Bale!!!1@!!@11!@!!" and all that.
