    Not familiar with him, he looks like the guy who played Scarecrow.

    Could be a good choice, he has gotta be better than Clooney and Ben.

    Ben was playing straight identity crisis batman, and when viewed in that light he did an excellent job imo. Clooney is a different class entirely.

    Ben would have been fine except that Batman can't have a cleft chin.

    Giving you an optimistic because clearly you have way more faith in him than I do.

    I can’t see any way he could fit beneath the cowl and it not be ridiculous.

    So, after writing that I went to look for a picture of Pattinson glittering in the sunlight while wearing a cape but found this.

    He could certainly pull off Bruce Wayne

    And maybe he could be a legitimate Batman as well. I’m not optimistic but seeing these pictures did give me a bit of hope.

    Not a fan of Ben Affleck, but his portrayal of Batman was the closest to comic-accurate than all the rest by far.
    People are getting tired of Hollywood trying relentlessly to get characters right, but generally it's not the actors fault, certainly not Ben's.
    Their scripts are lacking terribly.
    Justice League for instance was good, and could've been GREAT if not for poor scripting & story, and overzealous cgi.
    Making powerful cubes after Marvel permeated the MCU with the tesseract?
    Really?
    That story was terrible.
    But the Justice League characters & interactions were good.
    Potential lost, again.
    Dawn of Justice, same basic issue.

    No. Affleck can never be Batman.

    I heard a big reason he was cast was simply because at the time he was insanely popular in China, and the $$ dept knew they would cash in over there and not even worry so much about the western audiences. Don't know if its true but hmmm makes ya think about how and why casting works sometimes

    Affleck stick to comedy. Not tough. Batman lol I honestly thought it was a joke at first

    batman movies should start going with a full facemask. That whole exposed mouth thing looks so stupid lol

    Give him a badass armoured ninja mask with subtly carved fangs or something

    as if mofos wouldn't recognize someone's mouth. He must have a good dental plan, he armours everything else and takes big hits but nah teeth are fine. He doesn't even wear a mouthpiece.

    so stupid

    I'm a massive Batman fan and a massive Affleck fan so I was pretty worried he was going to fluff it. I thought he played the ageing Batman perfectly.

    I'm loathed to go and see Pattinson, but I'm a glutton for punishment so I will.

    being a massive Affleck fan, your opinion does not count.

    Okay, @Masato Toys@Masato Toys , what did he do wrong? How would you have written it differently?
    He has the arrogance of Bruce Wayne. You do know he got old in the comics, right?

    I just can't help but see Affleck as a sissy. He simply does not look tough to me, not convincing that he is a hard skinned badass. He looks like the kind of guy who whines about a hangnail, or would cry like a girl if he got cut or something. Soft, wimpy, spoiled. Cast him in a romantic comedy, or some period drama, or some sleazy stocktrader, or a soccer player who is awesome at dives lol - all these roles he is fine at. But Batman? BATMAN?? the toughest hardest SOB in Gotham, able to get the shit kicked out of him by a gang with baseball bats and still keep fighting till the last one is broken? No.

    Bad casting. I believe the rumor about Chinese audience.
