Ben Affleck will be playing the role of Batman in the next Man of steel sequel. This news has triggered a series of hate mails as Batman fans cannot see Ben Affleck as the face of their favourite Superhero.
This is not the first time fans are outraged by casting of specific roles. The last time such an outrage happened was when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker in the “The Dark Knight”. At that time, fans never wanted to see a ‘pretty boy’ play the character of the ‘Prince of Crime’, I need not get into much details of how well Heath had done the job.
I personally wanted Gabriel Macht (from TV series Suits) to play as Batman. I’m not a big fan of Ben Affleck after I saw the movie – Daredevil. But can we really blame him for the movie. The movie lacked the script and direction. Hence for better judgement, I saw “The Town” and “Argo” which were directed and starring Ben Affleck. And he did a splendid job.! His accent sucks in ‘The Town’, but that is just him playing the character who has a Boston accent. So if he were to beef up for role, and take the character seriously, which he will. Then he can really pull off being The Batman.
We have got another bunch of cool fanmade posters from across the internet. The last one is my favourite.
