How about just speaking for yourself and not presuming what other people think.

And I'm not sure what you mean he doesn't "fit" as Batman. Actually I do know what you mean, you mean he doesn't fit your idea of Batman, which is fine. But don't pretend to presume it's what everyone thinks.

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

Personally, when I heard Robert Downey Jr. was going to be Ironman my first thought was that it was spot on casting. Considering Downey's problems with substance abuse and Stark's whole "Demon in a bottle" story arc. Nevermind the fact that he was already known as an excellent actor and visually a good match for Stark. It seemed a no-brainer to me.

I'm not really sure what you mean about Affleck not being a good fit for Batman. You do all realize that it's acting right? You don't need to literally bring Bruce Wayne to life and cast him as Batman. Remember that before Batman, Michael Keaton was Beetlejuice...
And Christian Bale was a Newsie!

Stupid me, speaking for everyone. If only I had put a qualify in there that suggested that I wasn't speaking for everyone.

We think it's unverified and from an unreliable source.

Again, it's not official until we get a press release or confirmation from someone like Snyder/Nolan/Goyer.

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

Bryan Cranston is great on Breaking Bad, an I can't see any problems with him playing Lex Luthor. All of the controversy around Ben Affleck, reminds me of the fan-rage when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker . It's like an actor plays a specific type of role in a movie, and it becomes popular an well known, so people think that actor can't possibly play any other type of character. They don't realize that actors are taking on different personas in their movies, and are not playing themselves :P Daniel Day Lewis probably has nothing in common with Abraham Lincoln, other than that they are both homo-sapiens.

Sourcing the same Comic Blog that others have sourced. Essentially, its a rumor.
