Re: Rumor: Ben Affleck to direct 'The Batman' for 2018 release

Frankly I'm looking more anxiously forward to this than I am Justice League, since that... well, Zack Snyder. Look, maybe he'll prove me wrong in the future, and I am excited for Batman V Superman - out of the trailer and the posters, I can see that they transformed this into a WM 30 Daniel Bryan-like scenario where it was never the plan to try to cover up the blunders of Man Of Steel from a story perspective (Superman 'protecting' a city by destroying it in a fight and killing thousands, etc.) and use those as an instrument for the benefit of BVS's plot, and I like that a lot. Still won't make me think good of MOS, but yeah.

Now, I think I can start fanboying and dream casting. Most likely is that, given the background behind Batman's presence in Suicide Squad, they're going the Red Hood route, and I think Jensen Ackles is totally fit for that. But there are a few examples I consider more awesome... JOHNNY DEPP AS THE RIDDLER PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. If you're going instead for a villain you've never had, examples could be Christoph Waltz as Hugo Strange, Ray Liotta as Black Mask or Ewan McGregor as Basil Karlo Clayface (this latter would be excepionally great for a Nolan-style movie). And if there was a secondary villain, I'd like to see Baby Doll from TAS (crazy, I know, but I think DC would have the balls to pull it off, especially if JLA is a hit), played by either Chloe-Grace Moretz or Mackenzie Joy (who played young Murph in Interstellar). Besides that, I assume we'll have Jim Gordon by obligation, and even though Oldman was perfect, I say Bryan Cranston is a great replacement. And for Barbara, I would love for either Emily Blunt or Evan Rachel Wood.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

I actually endorsed Depp as The Riddler to be in TDKR, as i was sure, and there were rumours also, it was a possibility.

The generation of recycled over budgeted poorly made action movies based around men wearing capes era in force.

I will still watch, I like Batman.

Well done! I love all of those casting choices. I think if they do Hugo Strange like you said, they should use Grundy as his mindless giant zombie/Frankenstein henchman. If they made him similar to Arkham City it would be splendid.

Seeing Clayface done on screen with justice has always been my top wish from a batman movie along with a Arkham game accurate Bane, with the motivations and intelligence of Nolan's version.

I know he overcompensates how happy he is that Affleck is Batman, directing Batman, writing Batman, etc.. When you know it's his lifelong dream to be doing all of that himself. And instead the guy he "made" is doing it. You know Smith secretly rescues puppies, and names them Matt Damon, then strangles them later that night while wearing his mother's dress and screaming "THAT'S WHAT YOU GET, BEN, I'LL TAKE EVERYTHING YOU LOVE TOO"

I have no qualms with Affleck as Batman really. I do wonder how he does as Wayne though. Thankfully he has approved tremendously over the last few years and it has to be better than the Clooney and Kilmer versions.

Affleck as Batman...hmm...interesting choice.

I'll reserve judgment until the movies are out, but on paper, it's a huge step down from god Christian Bale.

lol Zack Snyder being at the helm of majority of these projects, don't have much hope for those movies. He'll make them all "dark and gritty" to the point where there's not a single smile in the film. Affleck seems to have a solid resume for directing, I liked The Town quite a bit but I can't help but feel all of this is Snyder's vision because of how heavily involved he is with the DC Cinematic Universe. Just look at the way the Joker is, the way Superman is. It's all up in the air really and it worries me
