terrible choice for batman, terrible
Possibly better than George Clooney or Val Kilmer.....mixed feelings if Batman has a Boston accent

Should have brought back Keaton.
He was great, but he was far too old to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne.

I disagree.  It depends upon what story they tell, but at Comicon I think that they quoted from The Dark Knight Returns.  In that story, Batman is 55; Keaton is 61.

Obviously, they're not going in that direction.
wait wait wait. A 55 year old was trying to beat up Bane?

  • I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
I would rather have Tom Hardy as Batman.
 
He already failed in a superhero flick already, and I  have much respect for his talents but he's not Batman-material.

Sigh.

If they do a "Batman Beyond" movie, they should cast Keaton.

"The Dark Knight Rises" isn't the same as "The Dark Knight Returns".

Great choice if true.

Thats a great call in their part. Taking advantage of his hot streak with breaking bad and what seems like a great actor (havent seen it but heaerd nothing but good stuff from him).
Baby Jesus!

Im on board with Affleck as Batman. My first choice was Jensen Ackles, and was surprised by this, but its really settling in as a solid choice.

He was really good in Company Men and Argo. His acting has become really refined. Better than when he played Dare Devil which every one compares him too. He's in better shape now then he was back then too, so that argument is out of the window too.

But some of the people reactions are crazy. Saying its the worst casting ever and starting a petition. Its like they casted Pee Wee Herman or Jonny Knoxville.


If he sucks he sucks. But I really going to wait until I see a clip before jumping off the fanboy bridge on this. But as long as he creates a good Batman voice it should be fine.

Bill Simmons was talking about this in a recent podcast. He says best accent goes to Matt Damon, but he didn't mention Ben Affleck. He hates the accent on Ray Donovan.
