Hes tall, dark and well, hes definitely tall and has dark hair and once played the real-life role of Jennifer Lopezs man candy.
But is Ben Affleck man enough to play Batman?
Controversy erupted across social media networks when Warner Bros. announced Thursday the 41-year-old Affleck will star in the newest version of the Dark Knight, a movie that promises to bring Batman and Superman together.

I’ll not see that Batman movie - not with an Obamahole as the star.
Uh...gee....doncha think he’d need an addadictomy first?
Oh, and I certainly WILL see Ender’s Game.
Yeah...they’d have to come up with some new props....like Batwing Panty Liners....ha ha! He’s such a pu$$y...
Well, this just might keep Clooney from going down in history as the worst Batman ever.
Val Kilmer was the perfect choice of the time given a horrendous script. See Doc Holliday for details. Even Keaton had his moments.
This much stupid is...I don’t know what to say..
My 12 year old daughter just read that book. She really enjoyed it. I guess I'll have to read it next and then see this movie. Looks interesting.
I wonder if Matt Damon will be cast as Robin.
How about Tom, he is a little runt.
casting Affleck as Batman is like replacing Daniel Craig with Paul Ruddman to play Bond.
The Aflecks and the Baldwins can go impress someone else. I don’t like either, and will not pay a dime to watch them. In fact, I make a concerted effort to NOT watch anything anyone in either family does.
He peaked in Dazed and Confused where he played a stupid moron flunkie bully. Maybe he was so good in that flick because it didn’t stretch his acting abilities too much.
Keaton was a good Batman/Bruce Wayne. Kilmer was a good Batman but not a good Bruce Wayne. With the exception of his over the top raspy voice, Christian Bale was great at both.
In my opinion, no one has filled the shoes of Adam West as Batman and George Reeves as Superman.
Did the idiots who casted this clown not see “Daredevil”????
I’ll give you the not a good Wayne just because he looked like he was 20. But even then, I thought he had the right blend of camp, angst and attitude.
I know its not a popular take on The B’ster, but it worked for me.
Why would they? no one else did! ;)
And don’t forget Affleck played George Reeves/Superman in Hollywoodland, the biopic about Reeves.
Nah, he peaked in Mallrats when he played the scumbag salesman at “Casual Male” who liked to have sex with teenage girls “in a very uncomfortable place”.
How much of his own money is going in to this.....?
Whoa, a movie based on a comic book? What’s next, films derived from amusement park rides or video games? How original.
I am not an Ben Affleck fan, but Daredevil was not all his fault. It was a crappy script with lousy direction as well.
He’s desperate for a payday
Even Adam Balwdin?
I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school,
He was terrible in that film.
I need you like Cuba Gooding needed a bigger part,
He’s way better than Ben Affleck.
And now, all I can think about is your smile,
and that shi—y movie, too!
Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss you.
Wonder how many of the petition signers are low information voters? Who cares the country is being flushed down the sewer. I’m made at who gets the part of Batman. /sar
All of them.
Adam is one of the few open conservatives in Hollywood. He writes for Big Hollywood.
Can’t see Affleck as Batman. MetroBoy, yes, Batman, no.
Adam Baldwin’s not related to Alec in any way, save sharing a last name.
Yes, go ahead. Let’s have a PC Batman complete with kneepads and a pink outfit, not to offend anyone.
Please, no violence above bitc*-slapping. Then have long discussions on how society caused the criminal to turn to crime so we can feel sorry for him.
Better yet, forget the Batman I read in the 60’s he was from a different generation. We believed in Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and John Wayne.
The liberals need to make a movie based on their own ideals.
I would suggest “PansyMan” with pink shorts and big kneepads who kneels down, pisses his pants and begs for the criminal to change and not to end his miserable life.
PansyMan would not use a gun, that is not allowed. Screaming like a little girl would be more appropriate.
When he gets his panties in a wad, then the criminal would miraculously see the error of his ways, and apply for foodstamps and free housing and a welfare check, and then society will be safe.
Affleck as MetroBoy, LOL. I might actually go see that, maybe
Yeah, like that's ever gonna happen.
OTOH, that did give me a great mental image of Johnny Depp as Batman. It would be...memorable...
if they did cast Damon they would have to change the title of the movie to The Ambiguously Gay Super Hero’s. and still won’t go see it. epic fail
Here ya go
Ave and Gary
ACE and Gary
I guess there aren’t enough REAL problems to get up-in-arms over. I can’t believe they are still making stupid stuff like this nor that anyone gives a crap.
Have any of these petitions actually made a difference?
Wouldn’t it be better if they signed Paul Reubens (Pee-wee Herman) to play Batman?
