Yeah Daredevil, maybe Iron Fist, Wonder Man, Captain Mar-Vell, maybe he can pull off a crazy Moon Knight, Nova (if they don't go for teenager given great power route), etc.

The A-list guys are pretty much taken up (I don't see him as the new Iron Man) so it'd have to be B-list and below.

Over at FOX there's more choices with X-Men characters.

WB actually wanted to meet with him to direct the now delayed Justice League movie, they were also asking him to star as Batman at the time as well.

I'm actually OK with this, I also think Josh Brolin would have been raw as a The Dark Knight Returns type of Bats though.

Also, I've seen a slur of Afflecks movies, you would think he's from Boston, which is weird because this dude is from Cali laugh.gif

I can't see Ben Affleck as Batman,at all.

Has he been tough in any movie? I can't think of one. Even in the town he was the soft one in the group. He plays a good jerk, but a tough gritty crime fighter? He's going to have to work on that.

Ben Affleck Cast as Batman in Man of Steel Sequel!

It's official! Ben Affleck has been cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zack Snyder's still untitled Batman/Superman sequel to this past summer's Man of Steel. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.

Last month’s surprise announcement of the new movie featuring both Superman and Batman created a wave of excitement and immediately fueled discussion and debate—among fans as well as in the media—about who would put on the cape and cowl of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.

Snyder successfully re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster “Man of Steel,” which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together. Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

In the announcement, Silverman stated, “We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”

Snyder also expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”

Kroll added, “We are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.’ remarkable legacy with the character of Batman. He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

Affleck recently starred in the Academy Award-winning Best Picture Argo, which he also directed and produced, earning acclaim and a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in the film, as well as a number of directing honors.

The new film is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers. Production is expected to begin in 2014.

Am I the only one okay with this choice?

We know WB was looking for a "BIG" name for the role. We got Affleck. Proven actor/director. From the other names WB was looking at this is a smart choice

Get over the fact he was Daredevil. It seems people want to trash this guy because of that role. He was great in The Town, and I can see him deliver that same performance in MOS2.
post #4302 of 14984
I liked him as Daredevil, I'm fine with him as Bruce Wayne. Interested to see how he takes on the roll.

They want to play off an older Bruce/Bats, I'm really not sure where they are going with it but it seems like they did get the age-appropriate man for the plot of the film.

Won't lie, that explanation sounds interesting, but just for this film. 6 years from now, then what?

For this film, I'm excited. Guess I'll worry about future films later.

Yo when I seen Big J's post in the thread for the movie, I thought he was posting the latest rumor but the title of the link was mad definitive. So then I'm thinking how does this news break so late in the day? I scramble to movie and comics sites roll.gif and the comments get me the most before I can even fully digest this info.

Even after laughing in other threads about responses to this news. I'm still undecided and stunned. I can at least see him as Bats but I just don't know if I see it being good given what I just saw with MOS, Goyer, and Snyder.

DC comics reboot their line every decade or so anyway. They're definitely going to reboot their movies after a decade's worth of sequels and team movies.

I think he's going to shine. I'm one of the few that stuck with him thru Daredevil, I think he's shown the last 5-6 years that his career is taken more serious now. He knows the world is doubting him, he'll work his *** off to prove his backers right.

And if its true about him possibly directing solo Batman's, then I'm even more positive.

Damn, there's rumors about him directing the solo Bat films too? This is gonna get interesting.
