Why Batman Is Not A Good Choice For Ben Affleck

Mike Ryan | Posted 10.23.2013 | Entertainment

Ben Affleck will most likely be a fine Batman. Maybe even terrific. No, he won't be the brooding Batman that we watched Christian Bale play in the last three theatrical representations -- because it's not really the point to represent dark realism when the point of this Batman is to quarrel with a handsome alien. Ben Affleck is a good choice for Batman. Though, with Affleck's recent critical success -- culminating in an Oscar win for Argo -- I'm not sure Batman is a good choice for Ben Affleck.
