Affleck doesn't have either the physique or the demeanor to be Batman. Bale redefined Batman as he should have always been. IMO Bale has been the
best Batman, and I don't see how Affleck will top the performance of Bale as Batman. Batman is supposed to be in top physical shape as training, and
technology are his weapons.
Affleck doesn't have the self control to get in the physical shape needed to be Batman. IMO for an actor to do a good performance of a character
he/she has to be entirely in character, and that includes to have the training and to get the physical shape of the character. Bale was the better
choice for Batman.
Bale knows how to get entirely in character. For the movie "the Machinist" Bale went without eating food except black coffee, apples and a tuna can a
day and became thin as a stick. Affleck doesn't have the conviction or self control to get that much in character.

I don't have a problem with this casting. Yeah he did Daredevil and it was horrible but the Ben Afflect of today isn't the same as back then. There
have been many castings in rolls that fans disliked until the movie came out. Michael Keaton stands out for one. Many didn't think he'd do a good
job but look what happened. He nailed it. Heath Ledger is another one. I didn't see him pulling off Joker. A lot of people didn't see it but he also
nailed it. For me Chris Evans as Captain America didn't fit especially when I couldn't get Johnny Storm/Human Torch out of my head since that was
what I remember him playing but now? I can't imagine anyone else playing Captain America. I'm willing to give Afflect the benefit of doubt because
he may surprise us and pull it off as well.
It's not like Keaton had that hard a job. The last Batman movie starred Adam West. This is pretty different. Affleck is stepping into a
role with pedigree.
Here's my take: Ben Affleck knows better than almost ANY one what it's like to be in the #ter. That period for him with the J.Lo nonsense and Gigli
(spelling?) was dark. Now look what he's done as of late. He's on fire. I say let's all chill out and give him the benefit of the doubt. I bet it
took some serious convincing to get him to say yes, but they sold him on the idea because, well, it must be suited to him.
Well it even spawned conspiracies, the whole thing is a conspiracy in itself. I mean Ben Affleck, he makes a good sidekick as Good Will Hunting and
most his movies has shown, so maybe if he hits the gym, puts on some muscle, and gets some acting skills, he could one day hope to be Batman's
loveable sidekick Robin.
But--> Affleck = Batman...Say what, What the hell, Nah.
The interwebs are full of this story and its ongoing. Google, youtube, various sites, and even random people are complaining about this on random

which really really bothers and irks them.
There like--> "So the social climax of our government has been running on empty, the banks are running wild, our elected officials are playing tea
