I had expected a much more ferocious response to the casting of Affleck as Batman.
I think he's a good choice. He fits physically, and I think his acting is underrated somewhat.
Michael Keaton was very good in that role, I thought. My first reaction to his casting was that he was too small, but I thought he carried it off well enough. Better than Clooney and Kilmer, that's for sure.
I thought Bale was a great Batman but a terrible Bruce Wayne.
