    Ben Affleck confirmed to play the Dark Knight in the Man of Steel sequel, at least according this to tweet by IGN and a bunch of others. Other sites have it as "more to come".

    Source
    Source 2

    Now that I think about it, I won't right it totally off, he MIGHT be able to pull it off. But I don't know, the voice is what throws me off, is he gonna pull a Bale and rudhuhduhduhduhduhduhd

    Ben Affleck is a perfectly capable actor and director, if recent years have taught us anything.

    Let's not judge and think Bale was the BEST BATMAN.

    Besides Batman is like the least interesting character in Batman movies, let's be honest.

    He would make a good Wayne, but Batman? I don't know.... hopefully he doesn't talk like a dog like Bale did. And Batman is the least interesting? Ya because Talia, Bane, Robin, Mr. Freeze totally stole the show.

    I don't see Ben pulling off Batman, Agreed I'm not sure his voice would work for Batman. Maybe he will be a mute batman:unsure:

    Keep in mind, when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker in Dark Knight, look how that turned around. While this is incredibly weird, Affleck MIGHT be able to pull off the best Batman.

    I never cared much for superheroes anyway.
    Prolly cause they're not that popular in Europe...

    Anyway, Affleck as batman?
    This might be interesting.

    But that's right. Batman movies are pretty much always about the villain, and they're the most remembered part of the films they're in by far (Jack Nicholson's Joker, Heath Ledger's Joker, Tom Hardy's Bane, Arnold's Mr. Freeze, Jim Carrey's Riddler, etc.). The villains are flamboyant and memorable, with the funny quips and quotable speeches; most of the time, Batman's just there to act heroically stoic (and/or stoically heroic) and then punch them in the jaw.

    As for the news at hand... eh? I think Affleck's a fine enough actor, but I'm not sure if he's really the Batman type. Every new detail they release makes the film sound more and more like a steaming pile of shit, so I can't say I have much faith here.

    Seriously, this film looks shitty.

    How shitty is it?

    It's so shitty, they should retitle it "Scatman vs. Pooperman."

    I never thought much of Affleck as an actor. Good director, though.

    I'm not against this because it's Ben Affleck but I'm against this because he looks way too similar to Christian Bale.

    Why can't they just cast someone like Josh Brolin or John Hamm who actually look like they could be both Bruce Wayne and Batman?

    This makes it pretty clear that this does not take place in the "Dark Knight" universe.

    Happy there is finally some information on the sequel, I'm looking forward to it! I liked Bale, although his voice was annoying as fuck, but Bale is a great actor in general.
    Affleck wouldn't be my first choice, but we'll see how it turns out. Not necessarily negative about this, I'm a big fan of the Dark Knight Trilogy, enjoyed them all tremendously.

    Let us not forget his stellar performance in DareDevil.

    Did you see Val Kilmer in the past 10 years ? He must weight 300 pounds by now LOL.
    And George Clooney just doesn't have the physicality to pull off a convincing Batman after Bale, he might still be a great Bruce Wayne, but you need more then embedded muscles in the suit these days to successfully portrait a super hero, look at the shirtless Thor, Superman Captain America.

    I liked DareDevil to be honest. It wasn't the best and had its flaws, but I enjoyed it. Minus the director was just pure shit. Still better than all 3 Spider-Man films, that's for sure. Also, Michael Clarke Duncan was awesome in it.

    Ben Affleck is a pretty cool actor, I definitely loved his performance in Daredevil.
    Is the Batman in this upcoming movie the same from the Dark Knight trilogy? If so, I don't think this would work. If it's separate it'll work.
