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.
