Quote:I think Affleck will surprise us. He has matured and he knows he has a great deal to prove in this venue. I don't think he'd be doing the movie if he didn't expect to hit the ball out of the park.
I probably shouldn't comment since I don't plan on seeing the movie(for a lot more reasons than just Affleck), but I just don't think he's right for the role. I don't buy him as a superhero. He was one of the worst parts of the Daredevil movie(and that's saying a lot with the amount of bad that was in that movie), and when I saw him playing Bruce Wayne in the trailer for the new Superman/Batman movie, all I saw was Ben Affleck(same as it was in the Daredevil movie). I don't know what it is about him, since I usually don't have a problem with not seeing the actor and letting the story pull me in, but I can't do that with him for some reason. Plus, he just seems very stiff and unathletic, and I don't think he can pull off the intimidating presence that Batman should have in and out of the suit(I most especially don't think he can pull it off out of the suit). Maybe that's all just me though, and others will enjoy him in the role. All I know is that this Batman will not be for me and that I will just have to wait for the next reboot to hopefully get a Batman I like again.
