He was ok in Daredevil. I think he'll be fine. I never thought Christian Bale would make a good batman, but he did
Whats next Matt Damon as Robin? Ben Affleck is a terrible choice for Batman. Might as well hire Kevin Smith to direct and put jay and silent bob in the film.

I'm not sure I get the hate for Ben Affleck. It sounds very similar to the flack Heath Ledger got when it was announced he would be the Joker.

What would be Ben's weak point in this movie would be his role as Bruce Wayne, and because this is a Superman movie technically, I highly doubt we see much Bruce anyway. It's not hard for Ben to be as good as Bale was in the suit because, well, Bale wasn't that great as Batman - he was a good Bruce Wayne who benefited from a great story/director.

Ben IMO just dosent fit the new Batman's standards. I think as you said its because Ben dosent fit the role as Bruce Wayne. I can't take Ben as serious as I take Bale. I see Ben more like a Flash/Green Latern, or Cyclops guy. I'm not hating on Ben at all (I'm sure he's gonna get a nice check from this) but I do see why some may have douts.

Hes not an action star. Every action film he's been in has been terrible. He's good at comedy and semi good at drama. I can't see him being a good Batman at all. Also, he has a blue collar every man image I can't picture him as the billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne at all.

I agree and I also think its hard to predict he's going to do bad, that just comes off more that you don't like the man/actor. No one really knows how he'll do. I agree with you, I doubted Bale, Ledger, heck I doubted Val Kilmer, and George Clooney as batman also. i doubted Chris O'donnell as batman. I doubted Jim Carey, Arnold Schwartzeneger and others in batman movies but they all did good jobs. So, I think Ben will be fine in his role.

All I am saying is... Most hated on the Daniel Craig signing as Bond, most hated on the Heath Ledger signing as Joker...

just wait and see. Let's not forget this is a sequel to a mediocre movie. If it sucks, I doubt it will be because of Ben. It'll be because of Zach Snyder and .... David... Goyer ....

Batman's personality is significantly closer to that of the Joker's than it is to Superman's. He walks a fine line between sanity and sociopath.

Christian Bale showed he could do psycho; Ben Affleck doesn't have that credit to his name.

Could he do it? Possibly, but it seems unlikely.

EDIT: As for Daredevil, Matt Murdock is a do-gooder. Had they cast Affleck as Superman, it would have fit better. I'm not saying I would have really thought it was a good casting, but at least I could have understood it.
