    Lex Luthor hits supes with the Krytonite, Bats swoops in and slapes him around in his weakes state, Bafflick realises hes not the bad guy and they team up to bring down Walter White.

    Bryan Cranston (breaking bad/Malcolm in the middle) looks likes he will be playing Lex Luthor

    I still think Bale nailed both Batman and Bruce Wayne. I thought his role as Bruce Wayne was brilliant. I'm not on board with BA as Batman it just doesn't feel like a fit at all. Also I will say without they ended Dark Knight Trilogy it sure seems like they left it open for another movie or 3. I just can't see anyone being a better batman/Bruce Wayne other then Bale. JMO

    Bale will not do it. Affleck fits IMO.

    Please explain how he fits, and please do not use the generic arguments, have you seen Argo.

    Yes, I've seen Argo, and pretty much everything else Affleck has been in. I've seen plenty of performances where I would say he did a solid or even a good job. Do you have a problem with his performance in Argo? I think he looks the part well enough, I think he can play the playboy angle reasonably well (if it is even going to be a factor in this movie), and there should be no problem with the physical aspect of the role. The only concern I might have is that his voice can be on the high side.

    What I am saying is, people keep pointing out Argo and saying because that was good, he is a lock for Batman. Argo was ok, I think Bryan Cranston's performance was much better, than Affleck. People are looking for that menacing performance, which Affleck is not, that is why I think this is a Batman & Robin casting all over again.

    I think, if they were SMART they would place BatMan in the MoS sequel and NEVER show his identity in THAT movie.
    THEN they can tease it and show him in NEXT movie.

    So you want a nearly 60 year old Batman is what you're saying? Has Affleck ever been asked to play menacing?

    No, I am saying in Argo, Cranston was way better than Affleck. Becuase I said that you took it as me saying I wanted him playing Batman? He already has been cast as Lex.

    That is a good idea. Just do not do what they did with Beast in X-men, where one person played him, then they recast him with Grammer(I know the 1st shot of beast was more of a teaser). They could do something where he is working on something, then in the last scene of the movie, Clark goes to interview him. Something like that.

    The fact that those movies are established is the problem. It was a series that established a tone and conclusion.

    The way Marvel was able to get the ball rolling is that they never closed any doors-- in fact they just kept opening more and more with their post-cred scenes, and as the films progressed, bigger easter eggs, cameos and plot lines.

    They made 5 films spanning 4 years that were connected on so many levels, and they've actually yet to explore all the possibilities. Most don't realize it, but Dr. Strange has already been hinted at, as well as the infinity Gauntlett and thus Thanos before the Avengers credits cameo.

    The DK trilogy just didn't open those possibilities--they didn't drop hints that there was a bigger universe. The three films spanned 7 years and they were about Bruce Wayne/Batman's affairs and nothing more. Then they closed the book on the series.

    MoS, however dropped hints like crazy. LexCorp. Wayne Enterprises. S.T.A.R. labs (Cyborg). Merravale Oil (aqua man) That's your starting point.

    Sounds like you need to just skip the movie. You will not be happy when you see it and you are not going to view it with an open mind. I like BA in certain movies. I really liked him in The Town. The only decent movies out of these super hero flicks has been the Batman trilogy with Bale. The rest seemed to be poorly written. No need to argue the point. Don't go.

    He's supposed to be in that new movie he's in.

    Personally, I've never been impressed with Affleck's acting. I've never believed a word he's said as another character in anything he's ever done. This is not to say that he can't be entertaining, but when I see him on screen, I always see and hear Ben Affleck playing a role rather than the character.
