The people making these dumb petitions are all idiots.

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.

I know these petitions are terrible. Again look at the uproar when Tarantino said John Travolta was to play the lead role in Pulp Fiction ! Look how that turned out

Don't get me wrong... I like me some Batman. This is ridiculous though. If you don't like Ben Affleck, don't see the movie. Life will go on.

Default Petition or No Petition

What I think is ridiculous is the movie exist in the first place.

Didn't we just have a very successful Batman trilogy? One in many peoples opinion topped all previous attempts? (Except for maybe the first 2)

It's almost a slap in the face to Christian Bale and Heath Ledgers (RIP) amazing attempts and performances.

I guess we shouldn't expect anything less.

I'd like to point out that there was a lot of complaining when they announced Heath Ledger back before that movie came out. It was very similar to this with Ben Affleck. That film turned out to arguably be the best one in the trilogy. We should really wait to see how this turns out before we all freak out. Even then, this isn't a regular Batman movie, per se. This is Superman with Batman in it.

I'd like to point out that I edited this post because I was being what some people call a di*k. I apologize. Rough morning here.

I do wonder why TA forum users seem to misinterpret my sense of humor and writing style...

What is this, Disney?

We all know its a movie. I only edited the above because I felt I was being a little too much.

Sentiment of the original was fine. The language was borderline -- keep in mind that this is a PG rated forum, for better or worse.

BTW, for those not keeping track of entertainment news, the new Batman would be appearing on the next Superman movie (and, I suppose, upcoming Batman sequels), not in a reboot.

And yes, the petition is ridiculous.
