Batman

I'm putting it here, because I don't care to get into a thing on Bookface:

Ben Affleck is the first Batman I've approved of since Val Kilmer (and that was only because I had a crush on him).

What??? A smart, wealthy, kind, and talented man has been chosen to play a smart, wealthy, kind, and talented character? HOW DARE THEY!

I like him. I think he'll do just fine.

No more Anne Hathaway or Emma Stone though, please. I'm sick of those ladies.

I think he'll be okay. My problem is more with the screenwriters for Man of Steel than anything.

My biggest issue is that you can have The Avengers working together because those characters have limits and weaknesses - they are, even Thor, a little down to Earth, so to speak.

How exactly do you have a guy who basically works out a lot and has gadgets and throws things at crooks, going toe to toe with a man who is basically a god? If they write it well, it can be pretty cool. If not, it will be really dumb and devolve into "Batman is cooler, therefore he wins."

I thought Anne Hathaway was one of the few bright spots of the last movie, but you know...pale brunettes.

Indeed. I didn't even know the movie was happening until everyone started fussing.

But yes, it easily could be awful.
