Ben Affleck as the New Batman?!!!
It's my worst nightmare come true! I hoped beyond hope that Christian Bale would return as Batman in a film with the new Superman but no $$$$ in the world would move the actor. I was hoping that they would choose an actor who was at least a close 2nd. It was difficult for me to envision anyone else in that iconic black suit. I even considered Ryan Goseling.
But Ben Affleck?!!! The man who destroyed the character of Daredevil?!!! Imagining Affleck in another tight suit is not something I ever wanted to do again. This is a travesty. It's not about his body because anyone could be made to look Hollywood buff. Affleck's acting is not up to par; Especially not for a dynamic superhero character who exudes deep darkness but yet is ruthless in his dealings with bad guys as he obsessively protects his fellow man; one who possesses a stoic, otherworldly heroic stance and a unmistakable swagger and high likeability quotient. This is not Ben Affleck. This is a sad day in Gotham City!
