So that was announced. Everyone is all pissed about it. I'm pissed but not that pissed. He won't be terrible. He just won't be that good. JLA has found its Downey Jr. now though.

Don't have a problem with it. He's come a long way.

the fuck is JLA?

Awful casting choice. I mean like, really awful. Possibly worse than Bale, and at the time I couldn't have imagined anyone worse than him.

It is just the JL now Respawned. Get with the times. The Justice League of America is a different team entirely these days.

I remember thinking Bale would be a terrible Batman but he turned out to be pretty good. DC has been getting pretty serious about their movies of late to compete with Marvel.

Instead of Bale doing his growling voice when Batman, Affleck will disguise his voice while Batman by doing his Boston accent... Yay.

I always thought Bale was a pretty good choice, but his voice is pretty ridiculous.

Affleck seems a bit miscast, but he's shown himself to be a quite competent actor when he needs to be. He's just never appeared to me to be an intimidating person, someone that can hold his own in a fight. But hell, neither was Michael Keaton. But maybe this new one will be less gritty and realistic, so it won't have to have an actor like that. But that would be an even more unfortunate choice than Affleck.

Another thing to consider is that when they announced Heath Ledger would play the Joker, the typical internet reaction wasn't much more positive than it is for this. Who knows, we might be surprised.

Also just found out that the next Batman-related turd is going to be, aside from starring Ben Faglick as Batman, a "Vs. Superman" movie? And by the director of the guy who did the most recent Superman movie? And that same director directed 300 and Watchmen? This shit can be written off as a complete waste of a quarter billion dollars already. Seriously. Fuck this shit.

Man of Steel was alright. I'll reserve my judgement for the movie when I see it. I hope their approach to this is smart though.

Thanks for getting up to speed. Have any new info you're outraged about?

I'm surprised anybody cares because the movie is going to suck shit even if you got the most fitting actor to play Batman, AND NERDS KNOW THIS.

After Argo I've kind of re-evaluated Affleck. Dude is pretty much awesome. I have no trouble with him being Batman (looking back, he's obviously a better choice than Midget Keaton, Val Kilmer and Clooney). Bale did his thing, and even though I dig the new trilogy, I don't think his performance was what sold it.

Since they keep retconning and rebooting and do-overing all the superheroes, why not actually take some creative chances and cast someone who isn't exactly what people expect?

That said, Harrison Ford is obviously the only correct casting choice.

Should have cast Will Smith so we could get another of his awesome jams based on a movie
