    It's such a terrible idea, it reads like a hoax!

    That is exactly what I thought when I saw it. And I agree that it does seem like a bad idea. I like Affleck, but this definitely seems like a hoax or a very bad idea.

    Seems like it's not a hoax. Variety.com

    I'm of two minds on this one. BA has never been one of my favorite actors, but I think he was really good in Argo. Who knows, it just might work. That said, I don't think he has the charisma of Christian Bale...

    I have a wait and see attitude about this casting as well. I don't mind Ben Affleck, so I am willing to give him a fair shot at this role. It is a very big role, and big shoes, to fill though. I wish him luck.

    The news made me do a double take. After all these years, it's hard to imagine someone more intense than Christian Bale as Batman.

    This casting is just horrible! When I saw Ryan Goslings name being thrown around I thought there couldn't be a worse pick for the role but I guess Warner proved me wrong

    First off Affleck Batman is a bad idea on every level. Almost as bad as a Nick Cage Superman. Affleck doesn't have the intensity to be Batman, or at least a non-cartoony one like the Clooney and 1960's one. I doubt he could pull of a Bruce Wayne. I doubt he can pull off the look of Batman either.

    Superman just had his first movie and he isn't even quite yet Superman. Let him have a full movie where he is the Superman we all know before he starts to do things with Batman.

    DC needs to be patient like Marvel was. It took them what five years since Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk to The Avengers? Each year introducing a new super hero for the Avengers?

    I am right there with you. So that is one bad idea followed by another bad idea. As I said, I like Affleck, but I don't think this is a good idea at all. Of course, it doesn't seem like there is anyone who could replace the Bale/Nolan combo. I'm sure WB just wants to sell the idea to kids, so it only matters to them that they have a big name. They'll just blitz market "Superman and Batman Together" and hope they make a billion dollars, which they probably will. I know that I personally didn't love or hate Man of Steel. I would have liked to see a decent sequel, but what I am seeing so far tells me that I will probably pass on seeing this in the theater.
