These are all guys who got picks for Comic book roles and the Fanboys/girls jumped off the bridge in protest.
Now Im not saying that he's going to be great as Batman. But Im also going to throw him under the Batmobile until I see footage.
But he has improved as an actor. He has really good size at 6'4". He does need to go threw with some combat training and tighten up his body. but he's already in better shape now then he was when he played Dare Devil.
Now people are crying over Bale. That he should be Batman, and no one will ever be better. Well thats a crock of shit. I've said it before, but after watching Equilibrium, I thought Bale was perfect. I thought he was good in Begins. But then he started to duck lip his mouth because he was pushing that Asthmatic Polar Bear voice. It just started to bug me.
Dark Knight Rises was not a great movie. Not Catwoan bad, but not on par with the other movies. So Im okay with seeing a new direction for Bats. It is weird how old they are making the heros. But what ever, as long at it works on screen.
Some thing people don't realize is they screen tested with Henry Civil. Maybe he and Affleck worked really well together, were the other actors didn't.
So until we see a suit and sceens with him talking doing a Batman voice, Im keeping my feet on the ground. I mean come on, Ledger as Joker? Did any one see him doing that voice after watching 10 things I hate about you and Knights Tale?
