I just watched my entire Facebook/Twitter feed light up with the news of Ben Affleck being cast as the next Batman. While I say it was surprise that this name was even in the hat for this role. Pairing Affleck with Batman would have never been on my casting radar. But… You know he did okay as Daredevil, he portrayed a believable driven vigilante in a movie that was let down by poor plotting, pacing, direction, sense of story or purpose.
And let’s face it… Playing Batman isn’t really a huge stretch for an actor… Do dark and brooding, rinse and then repeat. Maybe… Just maybe DC will also surprise us and remember to bring little joy to their next Superhero movie. For me, I think Ben will do good as Batman so does this mean Matt Damon will be on-board as Nightwing or Robin?
