In defense of Ben Affleck

23 Aug

There’s a bit of uproar on the interwebs today about the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, go check out #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck. I need to vent my opinion on this just a little and what’s better than a list to start your day?

1. Man of Steel was awful anyway

2. Seriously why is Batman and Superman being made?

3. Oh yeah to make money… which would involve casting big names… like Ben Affleck

4. Zack Snyder

5. Take a minute to remember how awful Man of Steel looked… and the dialogue… and anything other than what happened on Krypton and the acting… 

6. Topping The Dark Knight Trilogy is near impossible


because he's not a hero... he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a Dark Knight...

because he’s not a hero… he’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector… a Dark Knight…

8. Ben Affleck isn’t that bad, he did star and direct the latest best picture winner didn’t he? (Oh and there’s the whole being beautiful thing)

9. He isn’t the reason Daredevil was bad, he wont be the reason this is bad.

10. Z.A.C.K. S.N.Y.D.E.R. (Get the point yet?)

11. I really can’t come up with many good suggestions to play batman. The best batman is Kevin Conroy followed not at all closely by Adam West and Christian Bale. 

12. Actually yeah Ben Affleck would be a suggestion of mine. Preferably him or Matt Damon when a little bit younger or how about Bradley Cooper?

13. He’s a better actor than Val Kilmer. 

14. If that was why you’re not going to see Batman and Superman you could do with reassessing your view point on Man of Steel… it’s not exactly Oscar worthy. (Unlike Ben Affleck)

15. He cannot be worse than Clooney.

No one could be worse than George Clooney… ever.

    I agree. When people are losing their minds about how he’s not Christian Bale, they should remember that at least he’s not any of the other Batmans either.

      There’s also the problem another Christian bale Batman film wouldn’t really work, the last one had a pretty closed ending

        Very true. Any excuse they could come up with for Bale’s Bruce Wayne’s return would seem pretty forced.

    So, I had to share my thoughts on this matter in long form… it cripples me to the core of my being seeing what is happening to Batman… it’s time for the record to be set STRAIGHT!!!

      I can see that happening and then a follow up film with Catwoman and Wonderwoman
