Shut Up you freaking GEEKS.If Batman is that special in your like.You don't have the amount of brain cells it takes to recognize good acting.

Ok fine, forget Daredevil. Then how about: Gigli. Armageddon, where he is horrible and has a spitball in his mouth the entire time. Totally throwaway role in Goodwill Hunting. Sum of All Fears? Hollywoodland? He took up directing because no one wanted to see him on the screen!

Two years from this time.


Batman-purists will be screaming for 2-3 more epics.


Featuring Ben, Ben and only Ben.


It'll be like Robert Downey Jr. - as IRON MAN


Right now the Purists aren't sure Ben can pull it off -


But he'll go down as the best of many.


They're lucky to get Ben - it's the perfect choice at the perfect time -

With Ben you get a seasoned Hollywood vet.


Fought his way back to the top.


A writer, a director, a producer -


You put all of that into one BATMAN flick?


And you've got a Monster.


Other than the fact Ben's a Red Sox fan?


He's perfect - a perfect choice for this.


Long home run to the deepest part of Fenway.

I've always wanted my-old-pals the Farrelly Bros.


To direct a big super-hero kind of thing.


Peter Farrelly'd kill this -


As director - or even to add humor, dark stuff.


But Warner Bros. and Pistol Pete?


Are they still on the same page and talking ...


Hmm...


Lemme make a few phone calls here.


In my make-believe-world of Dream Teams.


It's like fantasy baseball, fantasy football - my world.


So far I've won nine titles.

Only Red Sox fans should work on the new Batman.


Ben, the Farrelly's, Matt Damon...


Make it a Boston thing.

Hard to imagine anyone being Batman after Bale but I'll give Ben the chance. His last few movies have been pretty good. I think people are being pretty unfair to him. I never thought Matt Damon could pull off being an action star either, but look at him go. I just hope he has better hair than he did in Daredevil.

Personally I could care less however I think if you go to the movie open minded and watch it when it comes out you will be surprised. Unless you hate Ben Affeck then there's no reason to judge yet. First of all he fits the bill for a Batman. Tall, good looking and usually a good actor if the part is right. Besides, there will be so many other actors and actresses,not to mention muti million dollars worth of special effects and CGI effects so don't be so quick on the draw. Remember the first Batman? I couldn't believe that choice either but it went well from what I remember. Good luck Ben! Any better suggestions? Perhaps people are thinking Ben is getting too old? Lol. Peace!

Dear Hollywood Suits: You are desperately out of touch with what the fellow fan boys and girls want. We DO NOT WANT Ben Affleck to be BATMAN. You cannot go from dark, brooding Christian Bale to the guy from Chasing Amy. If you must continue with the Batman franchise, NEW AND FRESH would be appreciated. It will be IMPOSSIBLE to watch Ben Affleck as Batman and not have flashbacks of the JLo years. Please do not do this. Please! -The movie going public
