    When Bale was first cast I remember a lot of people being all "Huh?". I remember when Ledger was cast peopler were all "The guy from A Knights Tale?!!??! This is going to suck!!!"

    How about we give it a few before we bury the movie. Not to mention, as I said in the Superman thread, I don't think this Batman is going to be the central focus. Further, he's going to be more Action Bat than Angry Bat.
    Affleck isn't the actor Keaton is and Keaton was most certainly brooding. Affleck also isn't the actor Heath Ledger was. I'll STILL see this, but this news on top of the fact that Snyder is directing again, makes me want to bite my pillow.

    Exactly. It could've been Orlando Bloom. Ugh.

    I think some folks around here need to add the under-appreciated but flawed, noir 'Hollywoodland' to their Netflix queue and watch Affleck as the worn-down-by-life George Reeves. He was excellent in the role and if he brings that to the role of Batman, every one of the fanboys will be singing his praises.

    The internet melts down due to the choice of actor for a "Batman" movie. Circa 2006:

    As a cruel joke, Chris O'Donnell could come back as Robin.

    Ledger was always a better actor than Affleck has ever shown to be and he wasn't a mega star to the point where you couldn't differentiate between him and his characters.

    I also trust Nolan's judgment over Snyder's.

    well, that's really it isn't it? If Nolan were directing this you would be all in support of the decision. But no, at least part of this is you WANTING Snyder to fail. I am not saying that is your only motivation...but it is some of it. Just as I am blinded by my distatse for Nolan. I own it. You should too. Look, if it turns out like **** you can say I told you so. But I think DC knows that their entire future is at stake here movie wise. I don't think this decision was made in either haste or without serious consideration.I won't argue this anymore. This is my last word on the matter simply because I do not want to form an opinion UNTIL I SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT. So argue away. I...am...outta...here.
