    Nobody thought Michael Keaton was a good choice either.

    Hopefully, he doesn't have an annoyingly stupid Batman voice like Bale.

    True. There was considerable backlash when Keaton was chosen.

    I think he is going to kill it. I know people think he is just a sparkling vampire, but if you have seen his recent work, people would realize he is actually a great actor. Yes, a great actor.

    People who doubt this Batman pick, go look at his rotten tomatoes scores and his meta critics scores. Guy has been making great movies for a long time. Most indie films to brush up his acting.


    Matt Reeves such a fantastic Director. One of the best story and world builders in the business. I trust his pick.

    This guy could be great so everyone needs to chill until we see him in the role. I remember when Heath Ledger was cast as the joker there was an outrage..."how can you cast him"!!!!!!

    Turned out to be one of the most iconic characters in Hollywood history, blew away Jack Nicholsons version and nobody ever could have imagined that.


    So everyone just relax.

    The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision is reporting that Pattinson will go up against the Penguin and Catwoman in the latest incarnation of Batman.

    While Pattinson is believed to be on the cusp of signing up for the role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, there are no rumours over who might portray the two villains. Although Josh Gad’s name is seemingly never too far from any discussions about the Penguin.

    Affleck did a fairly good job of portraying him, which just goes to show you it's a hard character to get wrong. You stroll around as Bruce Wayne and fly around in a suit as Batman. Not exactly a difficult role to get right.

    Villains are tougher because they need personality and the movie hinges on whether or not we sympathize with their cause. That can be tough for an actor, or actress, to pull off. Anne Hathaway, as fantastic as her ass was in that suit, was terribly miscast as Catwoman in TDKR.

    Without Ben Affleck, aka the GOAT, it's not going to be a real Batman.

    Ben failed in justice league. Yes, he was good in BvS. But to say Batman is easy to do is not fair or true.

    I thought he did a great job in BvS but yeah, he was meh in Justice League. To be fair he was never really given the chance to explore the character like previous actors though.

    He's grown into a great actor/director the last decade, I wish he'd have gotten the chance to make the Batman movie he wanted.

    Doesn’t that automatically disprove your argument that anyone can do Batman? Val Kilmer did good with a bad story and director. George Clooney Couldn’t pull it off under the same conditions.

    Who's producing this new installment of the Batman franchise? That determines if I get excited about it or not.

    I can't believe they still make Batman movies.

    The only one I have seen worthwhile in some time was the Lego Batman movie. That one was a classic

    I just want someone to bring back Alexander Knox from the 1989 film so we can get a reprisal of "Hello, Legs" and "He must be King of the Wicker People." And also getting a grant.
