Ben Affleck as Batman

I just found out, that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the continuation of Man of Steel:

Ben Affleck Is the New Batman

I also found out, that many fans are not too happy about that:

Batman Backlash: Ben Affleck Has Nothing on Michael Keaton

I personally think, that Ben Affleck might actually turn out to be an excellent choice for the role of The Dark Knight, so I took like ten minutes to try and portray him as The Caped Crusader.
Don't be too harsh on me, my Paint skills are not as good as they used to be:

Ben Affleck as Batman 1

Ben Affleck as Batman 2

Your paint skills are atrocious and you shouldn't have bothered with that as it really doesn't help your argument.

As for Ben Affleck being casted as Batman, in the new batman/superman movie that will be coming up, I'm going to be neutral about it. He could certainly surprise us like Heath Ledger did as the Joker in the Dark Knight.

Then again, I do think there are some better choices to play Batman right now if they couldn't get Christian Bale to do it again.

I think Christian Bale did the best out of all the people who have portrayed the Dark Knight so far. He wasn't the best as Batman or Bruce Wayne, but he did rank up there as both and overall it made him the best for me.

Shame, he didn't have a voice like Kevin Conroy though as I always see him as the voice of Batman.

Steve Buscemi would be great.

Michael Keaton was the best Batman period!

The latest trilogy of Batman was a joke, horrible films each and every one of them.

Personally there has only been one great Batman movie.. Batman Returns, all others have been decent or pure crap so personally I don't care who they get to play Batman as the movie will most likely suck with it's movie track record over the last two decades.

I second that. Michael Keaton was/is the best Batman period. Val Kilmer did a great job too. BUT, when they let George Clooney take the reins well...................................
