Michael Keaton

Affleck Gets My Bat-Blessing

EXCLUSIVE

082913_micheal_keaton_launch
Fear not Bat-dorks, Ben Affleck is going to be a GREAT Batman ... so says one of the most respected guys to ever don the cape and cowl, Michael Keaton.

Keaton -- who famously danced with the devil in the pale moonlight back in 1989 -- was leaving Toscana in Brentwood last night when he sang Ben's praises ... telling TMZ, "He's gonna be great."

FYI -- Warner Bros. just announced that the untitled Batman & Superman joint movie (starring Affleck) is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015 ... so, we've got about 2 years until we can see if Keaton is right.

An undeserving snot who is 16 and in a $125K vehicle rear ends somebody, totals a car, probably texting, and she leaves before the police arrive. EF'en s*** of the earth people! How the EFF do you keep posting crap about them, tearing down the ex's of all the fat daughters, and STILL have the nerve to ignore the FAILURE OF KRIS's SHOW. TMZ- BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY KRIS JENNER/Kardashian.

You forgot to mention that he was essentially black balled in Hollywood for refusing to play the role again

Hollyweird ran out of ideas 15 years ago. It's all sequels, re-makes, and johnny depp running around with another top hat on and acting all "crazy" in some tim burton POS. Save your money people.

"Ben Azzlick is the new Batman....." I haven't been this excited about a "celebrity" news story since I heard Louie Anderson might be getting his own reality show....=(

Great! Now ask Clooney, Kilmer, Bale, and for God's sake someone ask Adam West!

If George Clooney couldn't swing it, I hardly think Affleck will do any better!
