Top 10 Reasons Ben Affleck Will Suck as BatmanIt's been recently announced that Ben Affleck will play Bruce Wayne / Batman in the Man of Steel movie sequel. There's many reasons to get excited about Ben Affleck... but equally as many reasons why this news just stinks.

Don't get be wrong -- I liked him in Dogma and Good Will Hunting, but then there's always GIGLI.... *shiver*

Gigli is so bad, I don't want to sully this list by including it.

Here's 5 reasons Ben Affleck will suck as Batman.

#5 Daredevil was awful


(But you already knew that)

Ben Affleck was terrible and the movie was garbage just like DC movies for the foreseeable future.

And he ends up nailing it as Batman. You guys are all f**k*ing morons, and I hope by now, you've realized your mistake and learned from it.

Posted by: Fuckyourself2016 on 8/22/2016 12:00:58 AM
just a smirk. thats his whole personality.
thinks hes god. nope, he just got lucky.

he is the ONLY actor ever to ruin a superhero franchise in its DEBUT.

Dude would make Depps Wonka look like a winner.

Ben, check out Gary Oldman. Hes so good u might not realize its him


we all realize its u. u have a smirk ugly face and are a horrible actor.

PLEASE STOP RUINING FILMS!!!

He is a pompous ass. Period. Just looking at him makes me wanna punch him. he was that dipshit geek wanna be in school that didnt have the geeks beat the s**t out of him.

in short, he thinks hes god, but he really is just.... gigli

Posted by: Bensux on 4/3/2016 2:50:53 PM
The reason Ben will tank is b/c they are rushing to get the heroes together to make JLA. In a small cameo role in the sups movie fine but it takes away from Cavill and his development of the character.

Posted by: jimmorsjdh on 1/20/2015 6:53:50 PM
I think he's going to surprise everyone and knock this out of the park. And to anyone who isn't going to see this movie because he's Batman all I have to say is "you're an idiot". And why would you compare him to Christian Bale? I didn't compare Keaton to Clooney or Kilmer or Nicholson to Ledger cause each actor puts his own spin on their roles. Bale is the better and more accomplished actor but how does he have fans anyways? Remeber him flipping out on the set of Terminator? Terrible. Just terrible.

man look at him his personality will ruin the character of batman . He cannot be comp<> to bale he is nothing he will definately suck

First off, let me state, Affleck will suck monkey balls as Batman, I'm reading through the comments: "He was good in Dazed and Confused?" You mean for the two minutes he's on screen beating another man's a** with a paddle? Yes, I would agree, that has been his best role to date, pretty much sums up his personality, no?

Ok..first Affleck didn't have a whole lot to work with in the mentioned films above. He has reinvented himself in the last 5-7 years as a quality actor and director. Did anybody watch him in The Town and Argo? Afflect has a goods to deliver. It will be different. No one should expect another Christain Bale. This will be a different movie with a different take on the Batman. I do think though that instead of putting him in a World's Finiest movie, that should just make a separate Batman movie and a separate Superman movie. I am excited.

I didin't complain when they casted Keaton as Batman. I didn't complain when they casted Ledger as Joker. But i am abso-effin-lutely complaining they casted Affleck as Batman. It's never, EVEEER gonna work. I did complain when they casted Daniel Craig as James Bond tho, but I never even heard of him then. But Affleck... I know Affleck.

Posted by: Strange Days on 9/13/2013 12:56:31 PM
I think Ben Affleck will do fine as batman. Write a goos story, chose a good director, and put some money behind it. It'll work just fine.

Posted by: bgreyloc on 9/12/2013 11:18:03 AM
I don't mind that it's Affleck. What I do mind is that DC have gone straight back to doing more Batman stuff rather than giving its other heroes a try.

Posted by: annoyinglizardvoice on 9/5/2013 5:22:41 AM
I have never been a fan of Ben Affleck one reason being Daredevil. I choose to give him a chance and go into it with an Open mind. I thought Micheal Keaton was going to suck as Batman but he ended up doing a great Job. Also, Daredevils being a suck fest does not all rest on Ben Afflecks shoulders. It was a failure across the board.

Posted by: Gary P on 9/2/2013 1:43:39 PM
I hated Daniel Craig as Bond, Casino Royal was so Boring, but by the time he got to Skyfall he made the role of Bond his. Keaton was a Great Batman So give Affleck a chance he may surprise you, Ledger did. After all the reason Daredevil wasn't good was because the writers and producers didn't show respect for the character or medium. When the respect isn't there you get movies like Daredevil, Batman and Robin, and worst of all Catwoman.

Posted by: xace13x on 9/2/2013 1:03:26 AM
I think it's great. It would seem that a ton of people follow his career closely...which means people don't dislike him as much as they tell others. When someone is bad, people don't watch.

Posted by: bgreyloc on 8/28/2013 3:40:36 PM
Yeah, I'm like a lot of the people here. My initial reaction was shocked and disappointed, but after thinking about it, I think that he might be able to pull it off. And everybody wants to point out his bad movies, but they forget about his most recent movie, Argo, that was critically acclaimed and good. I'm just saying, let's reserve some judgement until the movie actually comes out.

On the other hand, I remember when I learned that Nicholas Cage was casted as the Ghost Rider and I was thoroughly disappointed before it came out. But I think that's different because Cage just didn't look the part like I envisioned Johnny Blaze to be, (a younger looking and more athletic build).

Posted by: Kevin on 8/27/2013 2:51:18 PM
Ok on point number 4.....

Ken Urban in Judge Dredd......simply equals awesome and the perfect chin for the part.

And I will say it Daredevil was good. You have to see the Directors Cut...so much better. If anything Bullseye made that movie suck out loud.

Posted by: SeekerMuadib on 8/27/2013 2:16:00 PM
To be fair to Affleck, you cannot lay the blame solely on him for his bad movies. Some blame has to be placed on the writers and the director. Affleck can be criticized for his choice of projects to act in though.

Posted by: lordoracle on 8/27/2013 12:42:09 PM
If sequels don't normally do as well as the original and people are boycotting going to the movie then they are already losing money. It's imperative they put the best actors into the rolls because it will only take a few more duds like Green Lantern and you won't see JLA movies and the genre will die out.

Posted by: minted on 8/27/2013 10:14:25 AM
I would rather see Christian bale in a remake of gigli than Ben affleck as batman. Bat-fleck is Warner brothers way of saying thank you to Ben for all his stunning achievements like reindeer games and paycheck *sarcasm*

Posted by: I hate bat-fleck on 8/26/2013 10:07:13 PM
At first I didnt like the idea, but I tried to picture him as bats and it just might work.

Posted by: Pandab0mb on 8/26/2013 12:39:28 AM
I am glad you made this post. I was really depressed when I found out about that affleck is going to be batman. Ben is terrible in doing comicbook movies. Dc killed it on me for this one.

Posted by: kaijuhero on 8/25/2013 11:07:52 AM
I think he could make a great Bruce Wayne. Not sure about Batman though.
I guess everyone forgot about all the hate toward them announcing Heath Ledger as Joker and the Jokeback Mountain references

Posted by: TekWolf on 8/25/2013 5:27:01 AM
These arent reasons, they are just abunch of images and videos wich doesnt build up an argument. What a waste of time.

Posted by: Donjoaquin on 8/24/2013 7:26:09 PM
I liked Daredevil, Affleck himself said in an interview in his defense that Daredevil was directed in a time when companies weren't investing $$ in those types of movies...Daredevil could have been better but not bad for the time. I think he could do bruce wayne, batman may be a challenge for him.

Posted by: David on 8/24/2013 1:41:02 PM
In my world he goes by one name and one name only and that is moon raper...

Posted by: no way on 8/24/2013 11:00:25 AM
Ben Affleck has made a lot of good roles. I like Daredevil, but i agrre that the film could have been better, but that is not a reason to think that he is not good for being Batman. You're saying this now, but I'll bet that you will be happy next year with the new Batman.

Posted by: BetaKirby on 8/24/2013 8:12:26 AM
People complained that Mr. Mom was going to be Barman when they announced Keaton in the role of Barman. Not everyone was thrilled with the announcement of Bale as Barman, nor did they like Ledger as The Joker, mainly because of Brokeback Mountain. They complained Hugh Jackman was too tall to be Wolverine.

Daredevil was a bad movie because Dardevil was a bad movie, not because of Affelck. The story was horrible and implausible for the Dardevil origin story. They didn't take their time to tell one story so much as they tried to cram too much storytelling into one movie.

I'm not saying that I love Ben Affleck as an actor, but he has had some good roles as much as bad. I think he will do a fine job. Will he be the best? We'll see.

Posted by: WARMAG on 8/24/2013 4:00:52 AM
Affleck was the bomb in phantoms yo!!!

Posted by: James on 8/24/2013 12:37:23 AM
Daredevil wasn't that bad, by no means a Casablanca level masterpiece, but being a comic fan and a movie snob don't mix well. We kinda have to just accept that adaptations are generally not as good as the comic. Besides he alone can't be bad enough to ruin a movie, if it sucks it'll suck for a couple reasons.

Posted by: bobby on 8/23/2013 10:24:07 PM
Ya, I imagine this sequel and dazed and confused will be very similar roles for him........

Posted by: Hulio Sanchez on 8/23/2013 7:56:57 PM
I actually thoght he pulled of the Matt Murdock person very well. His Daredevil was a bit too stiff though.

Posted by: D-pool on 8/23/2013 6:35:45 PM
Although I am not thrilled with this decision, I know enough to wait and see. As mentioned people scarfed at Keaton and Ledger and they both were the best in their roles.

Posted by: Slade on 8/23/2013 6:34:21 PM
@ Lance;; Agreed lets give him a chance first. back in '89 I didn't think Keaton would be a good for for Batman seeing how the last movie I saw him in was Beetlejuice (thought he would be better for Joker at the time)and most saw him as Mr. Mom (which I hadn't seen) but he ended up being better than everyone else before and since (and yes that includes Bale who makes Adam West look good by comparison)

Posted by: Grim on 8/23/2013 6:16:56 PM
Wow let's judge before giving him a chance. Reminds me of how Daniel Craig was forseen as the worst choice as the next bond and look how that turned out? Bottom line it's better not to judge before you experience or your mind may be closed missing out on something good in the end.

Posted by: Lance on 8/23/2013 5:20:50 PM
He was awesome in Dazed and Confused though...
