Holy water works Batman.. the internet has lost it. The news broke all over the place late Thursday night that the man, Ben Affleck was officially cast as to play Batman in the upcoming Superman vs Batman film that they announce at Comic-Con.
No matter what people say about him he was confirmed to be taking on Batman in Zack Snyder’s sequel to Man of Steel. Is it too soon for them to be doing this kind of film? I think so because we haven’t really gotten a chance to see Superman grow into his own character even yet.
Ben Affleck or Christian Bale?
This is the point of the debate, everyone wanted Christian Bale back, but he doesn’t want too. You have a small group of people who didn’t want Bale back either because of the voice and some just don’t like Christian Bale. I think personally Christian Bale did a good job as Batman, better than the ones before him.
It’s a simple truth, no matter how good you are, someone will always come around who is better. Now we have the news that Ben Affleck is going to play Batman. First off people are really flipping out over it and the truth is, we don’t even know anything about the movie. People are looking at Affleck’s past acting jobs and aren’t looking at what he is today.
Christian Bale or Ben Affleck it’s not really a debate because Christian Bale did three movies that where borderline not even that true to the Comics, while Ben Affleck’s version might be closer to what Batman is. However this isn’t about if the Dark Knight films where good or bad films.
Daredevil was Horrible
Then you have the whole, holy crap he was in Daredevil and that movie was horrible so that instantly means if he plays Batman it’ll be horrible too. I hate to break this too you fanboys but Daredevil was a horrible movie not because Ben Affleck star in it. No it was horrible because it had a bad script and director and was put together poorly, something Ben Affleck had little to do with.
Ben Affleck is a Horrible Actor
Even if you want to call him out on being a horrible actor because of one role, there are a list of actors who have played ironic characters really well but prior to that done horrible roles. Honestly he has proven himself as a great actor over the years with movies like Argo and The Town which not just did well but won awards.
I find it funny because I thought I read back when Heath Ledger was cast as a Joker how it was a really bad idea and that he was a horrible actor. Now look on how many people love him, it terrible that he past but the fact is, everyone pretty much reacted he same way when The Dark Knight was being cast.
There still a lot about the film we don’t know and people shouldn’t be hating on it until we know more details about the plot and the role Batman will even play in this film. Don’t forget this is supposed to be Man of Steel 2.
