Ben Affleck as Batman? Huh?
Ben Affleck aka Daredevil as Batman in the new Superman movie...
I am not sure what to make of this news. First off, everyone thought WB would go much, much younger for the role of Batman. I even thought they'd go young with a Batman Year One version of the character. It would be interesting to see a young Batman square off with a new Superman. But, it appears they're going with a seasoned older Batman with the casting of Ben.
Ben Affleck has become a good actor, director, and writer, but it just seems like strange choice for the role. And, I am not as pissed as other fanboys about this news, I just find it an odd choice. I am willing to give Daredevil a chance as Batman. There seems to be a trend of actors playing more than one role as a superhero.
Looking Ben now, he does have the Bruce Wayne look down of late. So, might just work. Look at him.
Now, I just hope they find a way to bring in Power Girl...
Anyway, it could have been Nic Cage.
