Ben Affleck to play Batman in 'Man of Steel' sequel

I know, right? Ben Affleck as Batman? Warner Bros. announced yesterday Thursday August 22nd that Ben Affleck will take over Christian Bale's role as Batman in the sequel to the Superman movie "Man of Steel." which will be released in 2015.

Just like some of you, millions of Batman fans are against him playing the role and have asked Warner Bros to drop him or they will boycott the movie.

There's already a petition on Change.org for Warner Bros to drop Affleck; a petition that already has over 10,000 signatures. What do you think of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne? See what others think..


 Lol. The petition...

 
This casting move is only okay if Matt Damon plays Robin
Gotham isn’t Boston

Ben has all the acting charisma and all but I don't place him as the trademark action hero guy type, so I dissent to him being the next bat man too.

I don't think he is tough enough for the role of batman. He comes across to me as a romantic comedy type of actor.....

They might as well use Jim Iyke to play the lead role for the movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey!
I personally think Affleck was boring on Daredevil,why use him on another action hero movie?

i don't want Ben Affleck i've watched every Batman with Christian Bale in it and he embodies the character like he is Batman i'm not judging Affleck i have nothing against him i sha don't want to see him playing a role he's not suit for when there's a better alternative

In ma eyes, Matt Damon can do no wrong. Ben ain't an action hero. He's too...parochial.

I'm not too sure this role fits him sha ohh

James said...

God knows how much of a Batman fan I am. All the comics I've read, the shows and movies I've watched.

I can say Ben Affleck is an okay actor and wonderful director but you need someone special to play Batman as you'll be playing 2 roles: Batman and Bruce Wayne. Complexity is here and I highly doubt Affleck is a good choice for this especially when he blew his first chance as a Superhero.

Ben Affleck as batman, might as well have taye taiwo play Cinderella.

SMURF said...

i tot ben affleck was already a superhero which is DARE DEVIL, its just like asking his wife jennifer garner to play Catwoman when she is already Electra.... they shld look for another person abeg. Some of us are used to seeing him as Dare Devil.

Flop. Doesn't suit him.

bonita bislam said...

I fink fans shd cut him som slacks nd allow him prove himslf worthy of d new lead role.Who knws he'll outshine christian bale.u neva can tel.criticism has a tendency 2bring out d vry best in us

Anonymous said...

Am sure u guys are saying NO cos the Americans are saying No to Ben Affleck being †ђε̲̣̣̣̥ next batman. Ben Affleck is the best man for the job, he is one of the greatest actor of our generation and am so happy he is playin Batman can't wait to see the movie.

If Daredevil was any indication...Ben Affleck should definitely not play the role of batman PLEASE...he should stick to directing. At least he did a good job with Argo!

Stella Sylvanus said...

Ben ben are u sure u can play that role of a batman,he is a good actor anyway,Visit Angel Maryjane David Blog.

If the other Bale was that bad in their eyes, they shd give the role to Gareth Bale (of Totenham) na...or any of the Bale's in Lagos...Bale na Bale!!!

Corporate bodies& the Government especially need to throw their backs behind nollywood for significant changes to be witnessed. Till then,its produce this week, release next week. WORD!!!

@Bonita, the only shock will be if Daredevil is better than his portrayal of Batman, abet, they should toss Ben. After that disaster Daredevil, they shouldn't allow him play a Superhero, unless its the Invisible Man

He shld stick to drama. He's not funny, neither is he superhero material. It's like asking Jim Carey to act as President of USA in any movie

missy on the blog said...

Do u pple ever think of his wife and little kids u ar destroying their lives, its not enough that u slept with a married man and pastor, she had to come and post her dirty linen in public. What victim exactly ar u guys refering to?? Dat she didnt knw he was a pastor or a married man?? Or dat she was jazzed into going back a second time?? Wen d going was good, did we hear d gist, no. Y ar some women so selfish self, u went to a pastors hotel room, u sat on his lap, knowing d full implication, u kissed him and had sex with him severaLly, u went back dere over and over again? Wat victim here? Ese made her choices, d very moment she went back to him a sec time, she made her choices and i expect her to be a big girl and live with it. Dont get me wrong, am not supporting d pastor one bit, he made his choices too and he gonna live with it all tru. But i dont want to hear victim here ohhh, dey had an affair without thinking abt d consequnces. A strong woman will look d pastor in d face and say, no sir i cant sit on ur laps and leave immediately, but weak women alws give in, so dear Ese, u ar not a strong woman, infact u ar so weak. To make matterz worse, u fell inluv with a married man without thinking abt his family and pple ar here praising u for illicit affair. Its just a pity.

Ben is a cool actor sometimes and a wonderful director, he shld leave it at that. Not sure I would love to see him in the costume and I feel he is old for the character even if he supposed to be mature and all. As for playing two super heros, Chris Evans played the human touch in fantastic 4 and Captain America I guess that can slide.
