What a waste of time.


It's also hilarious that people feel the need to talk about DareDevil which was made 10 years ago.

1)He has grown tremendously as an actor

2)People need to realize that if a film sucks, it's not always the actors fault. It's the people that produced/directed the movie and actors can only do so much

3)Comic book fanboys are the worst. I have read comics for a long time, but I'm not going to judge someone's ability to play Batman before there is even a trailer out.
This.

These people take this WAY too seriously. Come on, give the guy a chance, geez.

I read that there's people who have actually sent death threats to Ben Affleck regarding this? Absolutely ridiculous.

It got so absurd that some of those engaged in the worst overreactions put up a petition on the official White House petition page asking the president to intervene and help reverse the casting
(the petition has since been removed, presumably based on a careful government investigation determining it was crazy).

Priorities of a zero world populace, who needs a planet or people when you have Superheroes and the Internet?

I'm sure if Superman really did land on Earth he would take a few flights around and see what's going on, jump online, see what's trending and head straight back to Krypton.

Keaton ended up being a good Batman and I don't think anyone liked that idea either. There was also Ledger as noted. I think comic book fans just like to get in an uproar about everything.

I agree with the last sentence, but I don't really give a crap about comic books... or this movie, if I'm honest, but Ben Affleck is a talentless moron who cheapens each and every project he's involved in.
