the unimaginative hack Steve believes him to be, Ben Affleck will be a bad Batman, as would anybody else cast in the role. I actually have a higher appreciation of Snyder's skills (though I may be biased on account of the fine direction he gave me on my three second zombie cameo in Dawn of the Dead), and I expect Affleck to acquit himself well.
a little more world weary. Throw Affleck in the gym for a few months and he could easily stand toe to toe with Cavill, a square jawed Bruce Wayne intimidating goody two shoes Clark Kent with sheer force of will.
Can Snyder make 'Batfleck' work
If Affleck turns out to be the best bat of them all, I'll tuck in my bib and feast on these words.
In my mind at that moment, I pictured a time bomb ticking away on the franchise. And no actor cast as Batman was going to survive when that bomb went off.
STEVE TILLEY SAYS:
When told a mediocre movie "ruined your book," he pointed to the shelf and said, "No it didn't. Look, it's still there."
"But, but, but! Michael Keaton!" you say. Yeah, I get that. Keaton was an even more out there choice to play the Caped Crusader in 1989's excellent Batman. But that was a Tim Burton joint through and through, infused with that subtle surreality that made the whole movie so weird and wonderful and workable.
Again, Steve proves my own point by saying Nike Mag Boots Price Michael Keaton ultimately was a good Batman because Tim Burton made a terrific movie, informed by his personal vision of the character. I even have a soft spot for Batman Returns (still the only sequel Burton has ever made).
But so could dozens of other actors, none of whom come with the baggage borne by Batfleck. Was Daredevil awful just because of Affleck? No. Could it have been better with someone Foamposite Yeezy On Feet
Conversely, I knew Val Kilmer (and ultimately George Clooney) would be "bad" Batmen the day I interviewed Joel Schumacher just after he'd been given the directorial reins of the franchise. How did he assess Burton's work? The response was along the lines of, "Does it really have to be so depressing? Can't we have some fun with the character? I get it, Bruce Wayne's parents were killed. Isn't it time to get over it?"
Problem is, he's Ben Affleck. And Ben Affleck is not Batman.
And it just seems so " unnecessary. Like Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh and Tom Welling before him, Henry Cavill was not a household name when he donned the blue tights and red cape to play Superman. Having someone as immediately familiar as Affleck play Batman feels like stunt casting.
other than Affleck? Probably.
Which brings us to Steve's final point, why not cast an unknown in the role?
So, given that Batman is forever, no matter how wrong headedly he's portrayed onscreen, let's see how many ways I agree and disagree with Steve about this Ben Affleck as Batman. We agree that Daredevil was not Affleck's fault. We disagree that another actor would have a difference.
Simple. What is the purpose of a sequel but to out gross its predecessor? By casting a fan boy lightning rod like Ben Affleck, the Man of Steel sequel has early buzz it wouldn't have had if they'd cast an unknown (plus Hollywood is still loath to let go of its belief in star power).
Actually, Steve is not alone. The casting of Ben Affleck as Batman (in a guest role the next Man of Steel movie, no less) has thousands, if not millions, up in arms (or up in keystrokes).
So if Zack Snyder is Nike Basketball Shoes Youth 4
I know the Batman in this movie needs to be older, harder, Foamposites 2017 Silver
Zack Snyder is no Tim Burton. While Man of Steel is actually one of Snyder's better films, I don't think he has the skill to transform Affleck into Batman, as opposed to simply Ben Affleck Wearing a Rubber Suit with a Bat Emblem on the Chest.
So let's go waaay back, to before Michael Keaton threatened the legacy of Adam West, to an exchange attributed to the great novelist Graham Greene.
In fact, in the case of every Bat movie, the lead actor is arguably the least responsible for how things turn out. Steve's mockery of Christian Bale's chain smoking Bat voice proves the point. Bale was not a great Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan made a great Dark Knight trilogy. No one this side of Patton Oswalt was going to be a bad Batman under those circumstances.
With production underway this weekend in Los Angeles, I've had several weeks now to let this news sink in, and I feel like I've gone through the stages of grief in reverse: first it was depression, then anger, and now I seem to be stuck in denial.
Unlike some of the Baffleck haters out there, though, I desperately want to be proven wrong.
When word first broke that Ben Affleck was going to be playing Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, I felt like Christian Bale in Batman Begins, holding that corrupt police detective upside down and growling into his face.
Listen, I don't have a hate on for Affleck, not at all. While he's been in some truly shocking crap we will never forgive Gigli, nor the aptly named Paycheck he's also done great work. Chasing Amy. The Town. Argo. Affleck's a fine actor when he picks the right roles, and he's proved himself to be a skilled director as well.
