Daredevil was my favorite superhero growing up. The only thing that bums me about Affleck being the next guy to don the cape & cowl means he won't ever play DD again, which I was hoping for. Okay, I may have been the only one...wink.gif

Apostasy though it may be, I thought that Ben Affleck was a good choice for Batman. He has the looks, God knows, and he has made himself into a reliable if unspectacular actor. Maybe they should let Affleck direct the film too smile.gif.

If it is true it will be the greatest casting choice since Heath Ledger got The Joker (which, if you will recall, resulted in people losing their minds in anger before the first trailer was released and then POOF, suddenly everybody loved the casting choice).

Anyway, Heisenberg IS Lex Luthor. Seriously. If Cranston gets the gig the entire internet will have an accident in its pants.

Ok, I may have figured out why I have concerns about Affleck in this role (still gonna give him a chance though). And I want to say upfront, I am by no means making any judgments, or bashing with the following question. And I have no desire for the conversation to go in that direction. When i think of Batman/Bruce Wayne, I think of someone who is highly intelligent either commonly or eccecentrically (but not quite to the Tony Stark level). Here is my comment/question of caution....Affleck doesn't come across as being able to sell 'highly intelligent" to me. Does this make sense to anyone else?

I’ve seen him several times on a program I won’t mention here, but the guy is VERY intelligent. Whether that is movie translatable to rub the sophisticated shoulders with the likes of Thurston Howell III remains to be seen. biggrin.gif However, I thought he sold “intelligent” in Argo well enough to satisfy me. I’m in.

Then we have Adam West. rolleyes.gif

I admit, I haven't seen Argo and I wondered about that performance. And what I'm thinking/asking has nothing to do with his real life intelligence. Some people sound intelligent but really aren't. Others, vice versa but with movies and acting, I'm not sure scripting intelligence is enough if the actor can't pull it off. I mean, I felt in Daredevil, Affleck made for a good attorney at least conceptually. They didn't really get into how good of an attorney or anything but the looks and sounds of the guy was believable enough to me. But to me, Batman has always been high level intelligence, not just a guy that graduated with a law or medical degree. Someone who got perfect scores on SAT's but is still grounded with common sense intelligence. And a psychological understand beyond that of casual knowledge.

Bale, to me seemed to fit this mold. To me he seemed like he would have been the kind of "brat" that got A's in school without ever studying. One of those guys that just has a knack for things and they always work out in his favor. And that deep psychological understanding as well. Affleck is more like a guy that did better than average in school and might do one thing very well but that one thing isn't necessarily anything physical. If they remade A Few Good Men and cast Affleck, yeah...I could see that complete with the hitting softballs scene. But Batman (and let's just use Nolan's version as the barometer), not so much. It's closer to George Clooney playing the character. That's just my opinion though.

Oh..and Matt Damon as Jason Bourne....that totally fits IMO. That character is more about being programmed and trained as an assassin. Not an operative who is capable of doing those things naturally and instictively.

I think we're all going down the wrong road with this one. It isn't "Well, Affleck IS intelligent. Just look what he did in Argo. He'd do well in Superman and Batman." It's more like "Christian Bale already set the bar high as to what we accept. Can Affleck equal or top that?"

It's like saying "Jason Momoa looks like he's got the chops and beefcake. Just look what he did in Game of Thrones. He'll do well in Conan the Barbarian."

The writers certainly can't mimick what was already done in Christian Bale's "Batman." They either re-image and roll the dice or pack it in. Affleck alone won't help carry it.
