Kilmer has become the "forgotten" live action Batman. I mean even Clooney as Batman is more remembered for being in the worst Batman movie.

At least with Batman Forever, there were some redeeming qualities. TLJ was pretty cool and Jim Carey was actually good as the Riddler. Val KIlmer wasn't soo bad, but he was not the right fit, plus he had just replaced Keaton.

With Batman and Robin, it wasn't just Clooney, it was everything about the movie sucked.

Not sure Affleck can pull off Batman. And I say that as one of the few who liked Daredevil.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Ben Affleck made these comments in 2006...

Daredevil star Ben Affleck says he will never step into superhero tights ever again.

"By playing a superhero in Daredevil, I have inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero," Affleck told the press at the London premiere of Hollywoodland. "Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation for me and something I wouldn't want to do again soon."

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Is this first time when actor has played both Batman and Superman on screen? Or atleast dressed up as both characters in movies.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Wow, this is really surprising and very disappointing. Ben Affleck is a pretty good director, but his acting sucks. I would be far more interested if Affleck was directing this and someone else was cast as Batman.

As usual, I find this board's enlightened viewpoint refreshing. Bomer's sexual orientation indeed should not and does not actually matter, but Bad Bishop makes a good point; some people are going to care, and some of them might be studio execs.
Bad Bishop doesn't care about the studio, he's just concern trolling. And his point wasn't a good one, because most people aren't bigots and enjoy Bomer's performances on TV and in movies without caring that he's gay. Many even like the fact that he's gay, and some others don't even know. Regardless, it hasn't impacted the networks or studios that hire him in any noticeable way.

Bad Bishop
frequently drops by when anything about gays is mentioned so he can make some snide remark at their expense. It's almost as if he has some sort of means of detecting gay stories; a gaydar if you will.
Would your file on me fill a ring binder? Just curious. I don't spend a lot of time here anymore.

I am willing to say what's politically incorrect here, and I don't care whether you like it or not. Fans of Matt Bomer are wrong to take offense. I merely pointed out that he has baggage. Who knows, he might even agree.

Ah, Jesus fuck... As if MoS wasn't bad enough...

Never liked Affleck as an actor so I am not too crazy about this choice.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I honestly just don't get it.

What does he bring to the table that they can't get elsewhere with less baggage? Is he going to be writing/directing the new Batman film series?

Hollywoodland, the movie about the murder of George Reeves. Affleck played Reeves. It's very good.

Ben Affleck to be the next Batman?

DC/WB, you cannot get your new film universe right at all.
