I know it's an unpopular opinion, but Keaton was never really that believable for me as Batman.
Never bought into Keaton either. Batman as a pudgy middle-aged man? Yeahhh... Sorry don't buy it.
Blame Tim Burton, with his insecurities about strong male figures. In fact, during a Today show interview during the 1989 film's week of release, he said he was avoiding the "square jawed" type of person. Major personal hang-up. He thought Batman was just a "geek" with high tech gadgets/suit.

It is no wonder his films have not stood the test of time.

Keaton was 38 in Batman (1989). Christian Bale was 38 in The Dark Knight Rises.

I thought Bale was a great Batman but a terrible Bruce Wayne.
I frankly thought Bale was kinda boring as both. He looked the part and had the right badass attitude, I guess, but he just never really grabbed me or made me love his version of Batman.

But then I've never really found him that compelling in anything he's done.

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

This reminds me of how lucky we were to get Chris Reeve. Lyn Stalmaster pushed for him, but the studio wanted a known quantity like Warren Beatty, James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Nick Nolte, Robert Redford or Jon Voight.

Clearly that's what's happened here.

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

I think I would be less skeptical (to put it mildly) with Affleck's casting if it wasn't for the poor track record for everything related to this movie. I hated the last two DC films (The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel), dislike Zack Synder as a director, and, along with everyone else, hated Daredevil. I hope I'm wrong, but I have no reason to think positive thoughts about this decision given everything surrounding the film.

Nope... A completely different universe...
With the same Wayne Enterprises corporate logo...
That was an easter egg rather than forward planning.

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

I'm fine with Affleck as batman. I actually didn't dislike Daredevil (and the director's Cut made it an actual good movie, not amazing but solidly entertaining) and I think Affleck will do a much better job as batman/Bruce wayne than Bale did. PArtly because, even though I haven't seen a huge amount of Afflecks stuff, I think Affleck is a better actor, and also because Bale was just so lame I think it would be hard to have a worse actor playing the role (outside of just casting some completely inappriopriate person as a joke).

Christian Bale is a much better actor than Ben Affleck. Patrick Bateman is one of the best movie performances of the modern age.

I'm very skeptical of this news, as I don't think Affleck has a particularly cool screen presence. We'll see though.

I do hope they go with a better Batsuit and Batmobile this time. This pic. looks good, I want to see a Batsuit where I can recognize the Batsymbol.

I'm wondering what Kevin Smith has to say about this?
