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

    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.

    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.

    I actually like Ben Affleck, but casting him as BATMAN???

    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.

    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?

    Where is that coming from? He looks actually great as Supes.

    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.

    I was floored hearing the news on HLN this morning, that Affleck is going to be Batman. He's not that bad an actor, but i won't picture him as Bruce Wayne at all. He may surprise all of us.

    Now that you posted the pic, the brain trust at WB will cast his old ass as Robin, just to keep Affleck happy on set.

    ...and here I thought no one would sink below the nightmare that was Keaton as Batman....

    Keaton as Batman was good. Keaton as Bruce Wayne was horrible. Affleck as Batman/Bruce I can see working. Cautiously hopeful here.

    Affleck's a rotten actor, but to be honest, so was Bale. It ain't hard to do the Batman voice...

    Well, Affleck can't be any worse than that hack Bale. Definitely a surprising choice though.

    Is Affleck going to be Nolan-verse Bruce Wayne who somehow came out of retirement because JGL messed up?

    One of my old pals taught me this trick post-Gigli... imagine every/any individual role in cinema initially as the original actor, then as Ben Affleck. It's amazing... what's even more amazing is that he's even worse than himself in his own roles. If you can get your head around that. Intriguing.

    The easiest one might be: Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly. Then try and imagine that role as acted by Ben Affleck. Have fun! :D

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was WB's plan. They seem to have been trying for the last couple of years to attach Affleck (as a director) to pretty much every potential franchise they've got. He was already rumored for the Justice League movie, after all.


    Interestingly, Affleck was supposed to play Superman in Wolfgang Petersen's aborted Batman Vs. Superman movie.

    I'd heard that Jude Law was in line for Superman in that film.
