Is Ben Affleck really the next batman. In the upcoming Superman sequel, it’s reported that Ben is the pick for the new Batman. I don’t mind Ben Affleck. I don’t think our political views are a match but most of his movies have been ok. But that’s kind of it, just ok. Batman is a tormented character, that’s why Christian Bale did it so well. Christian seems a bit tormented himself. Batman is angry, brooding, well the latest incarnations anyway and is Ben the guy for that? Batman as the Dark Knight isn’t only about justice but vengeance. He’s big, he’s angry and he’s willing to do what is necessary to remove evil from Gotham. Is Ben? The Batman movies have been on a pretty good roll lately so if true I hope Ben can pull it off.
