I'm curious to see the response from Trek fans on this subject as we are very opinionated when it comes to the casting of the hero and the villian. I personally think it's a horrible choice. I don't feel Affleck has the depth of the acting chops needed to carry out the role. No matter what role he plays, I can't suspend my disbelief and so he's always Ben playing some other dude. If they couldn't land Bale, I think some no-name actor should've been chosen.

Target that explosion and FIRE!

I like Ben.  Enjoyed many of his movies, but cannot see him as some tortured, troubled soul like Batman.  I also don't think he has the right physical look.  He always strikes me as someone who is just a few Dunkin Donut visits from being 20 lbs overweight.  Kinda Val Kilmer.  Better choice would have been the guy who just played Dredd and McCoy.   

No response must mean you all agree.

I think that ben affleck could possibly pull it off but I just think that there are far better choices out there. I am much more skeptical of them being able to pull off a batman superman crossover. (Yes I have read Frank Miller but outside of nolanverse, DC has been pulling alot of "meh" quiality movies out of their hat)

When I think "Batman", his is not the face I would picture. However, I think he may yet be able to pull it off. Other actors have surprised me more in the past. I can't really vote either yes or no until I actually see Affleck's performance in the role.

Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?
