    How about Matt Damon as Robin? :p

    In seriousness though, don't care for much for this. It's fine. Plus, I love this guy anyway. :)

    Congratulations Warner Brothers! It's Batman and Robin all over again. Apparently, they will run the franchise into the ground again. Hopefully I'll still be alive when they attempt to resurrect it. You figure when.... 2025?

    Ugh. He's got a cleft chin and a fanbase...maybe he'll direct instead?

    I'm much more interested in who will direct. I am not a fan of Christopher Nolan and all the baggage he's now tied to Tim Burton's (hardly flawless but inspired, beautiful, imaginative, fascinating) films in the franchise. Or that we now have to hold him up as the anti-Snyder (thanks a lot for Man of Steel, who knew you could sink even lower than remaking Dawn of the Dead?) when he's done just as much damage as good.

    That would be pretty funny. Actually, I would prefer if Urban was just batman the whole time.

    I never did like Ben Affleck, hes a sub-par actor and unimpressive eye-candy. I wonder why they just didn't get Bale to be Batman in the new man of steel movie. Super hero fans love crap like that.

    They offered him a lot of money but he turned it down. SO now Affleck will appear in the superman/batman film.

    Well, that now makes Snyder's fantasy to become Michael Bay almost complete.

    Meh. Don't like Affleck in genral but can't get worked up enough about it. Could be crap, but could be a surprise. Nothing to do about it other than to wait and see.

    Sucks! I'm pretty sure though Katatonia has the future blu-ray on pre-order!

    I found MAN OF STEEL to be truly tedious and felt the leads had no chemistry.Seeing them again doesn't exactly excite me.As to Affleck,he seemed embarassed by starring in DAREDEVIL, unless the paycheck was HUGE I can't imagine why he would want in on this.I don't hate him as an actor (he was quite good in HOLLYWOODLAND,playing George Reeves,the actor who play Superman on T.V.) but I have been more intrigued by his directing in recent years.I'd rather see him helming this than starring in it.

    I'd rather see Michael Shannon (General Zod in Man of Steel) play Batman instead of Affleck.

    That pretty much sums up ALL of Snyder's films: way too much eye candy, not enough substance going on within.

    I found Watchmen to be his best effort, but even that film isn't without some major faults.

    As for Affleck donning the cowl....anybody remember that feeling when you first learned that Patrick Bateman was going to be the Dark Knight?...well, this is the exact opposite of that feeling.

    I've seen every Batman film since '89 in the theaters... it looks like I'll finally be breaking that streak.

    Damn straight. Michael Shannon is awesome. Even he couldn't pull off Bruce Wayne though, but Batman.....he'd nail it. :)

    I still think it would have been interesting to see Joseph Gordon Levitt as Batman...
