Nabb1: Affleck is a talented actor and director, but this just feels all kind of wrong.
cmunic8r99: Oh, and newsflash?
DamnYankees: As I said in the other thread...why the hell would Affleck agree to this? Seems like he could have just directed the next Batman movie and made even more money with more creative control.
calbert: Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms
Rwa2play: WB must've thrown seriously big money for Affleck to say "yes" to this. Granted it wouldn't be the $50 million they wanted to give Bale to be Batman again, but maybe half that would've sufficed.
Confabulat: Judging from the internet reaction, the outrage from this casting is probably going to be more entertaining than the movie could ever be.
savedbymonkeys: Can he be any worse than George Clooney?
Highroller48: Well, if Daredevil is any indication, this movie should be an instant classic that completely redefines the Superhero genre with its originality and quality film-making.Oh, and appatently Jason Mewes will play Addict Corpse In Morgue #1.
DamnYankees: Rwa2play: WB must've thrown seriously big money for Affleck to say "yes" to this. Granted it wouldn't be the $50 million they wanted to give Bale to be Batman again, but maybe half that would've sufficed.But wouldn't he make way more than $25M by directing the next Batman film? I would think if he asked to direct it they would have gladly agreed to let him do it.
No, no, no, no ho ho.
Rwa2play: Considering that Nolan/Goyer/Snyder were able to get MoS to $600 million worldwide, don't think they'd want to screw that up.
skinink: So is his Batman going to fark Superman in an uncomfortable place?
TuteTibiImperes: Is this a reboot or in the same continuity as Batman Begins/Dark Knight/Rises ? The Dark Knight Rises had a pretty obvious sequel setup at the end, and I guess it could have also set up for a new person to take the Batman helm, but now that they're saying Superman is involved as well, is this just an alternate universe thing? Are they still going to do a movie from where TDKR left off?
