Okay, so on the one hand I’m pretty darn excited by this news:
After all, it means that Richard Armitage will not be playing the Caped Crusader. Y’all already know my thoughts on that subject. But now I’m stuck with a WTH reaction. Ben Affleck as Batman?! I love Batman movies and I’ve gotta say, this news sucks! Affleck is a wonderful director, his screenwriting skills are great, but his acting is more meh than anything. It’s certainly not in the same league as Christian Bale’s.
Oh well, I guess I know one movie I won’t need to see in 2015, although this really ruins my hopes for a great Justice League film. Yeah, I’m a nerd! 😉
Oh Richard, now would be a great time for an announcement as to your next role! I could use some good news. 🙂
Don’t worry, by the time there is a JL movie they’ll get Hiddles to play the bat.
