He did an good job as Batman in this flick but we have to wait and see, it was the same thing when fans didn't like Michael Keaton as Batman in the 1989 flick. Keaton did a lot of comedy flick but he pull it off and did an good job at playing Batman.

It is not Affleck's acting im worried about, Affleck's great. But take a look at this director and what he's done with great acting talent in the past.

I just happened to notice this at Wikipedia:

Quote:On April 27, 2014, it was announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be followed by a Justice League film with Zack Snyder directing. Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher are expected to reprise their roles. It will be shot back-to-back with Dawn of Justice.

If that's true, then it's possible that we might actually see a Justice League film as early as 2017. But why haven't we heard of people being cast to play Green Lantern and The Flash? Then again, Callan Mulvey and Scoot McNairy have been cast in unspecified roles. Ray Fisher was cast as Victor Stone/Cyborg. There have been reports that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman, but there has been no confirmation from either Warner Bros. or the filmmakers. However, I've heard nothing about who the villain will be in Justice League.

Ben Affleck to his 'Batman' critics: I can do this

Aug. 14, 2014, 1:01 PM EST

Entertainment Tonight

Ben Affleck wants us all to trust that he's going to be a good batman.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor reacted to the backlash he received when it was announced that he would take on the role of the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Affleck walked EW through his decision to take on the part. "Before I took the role, Warner Bros. gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, 'Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There's a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions.' To me, having been through a certain amount of that, it doesn't really ... Everyone's entitled to their opinion," he explained.

"I wouldn't have taken the part if I didn't trust my instincts in terms of the filmmaking. I think Chris Terrio wrote a terrific script. Zack's a great visual director. And there's an interesting take. I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think I could do it. I have the benefit of a lot of that understanding. But also, everyone is entitled to their opinion. That's a big part of this international sport."

Here's the most important part of the above quote:

Quote: I think Chris Terrio wrote a terrific script. Zack's a great visual director.

Chris Terrio won an Academy Award for writing the screenplay for the movie Argo, which won an Academy Award for "Best Picture." Thus, as a scribe, Chris definitely knows what he's doing. Probably the best thing that happened when Warner Bros. cast Ben Affleck as Batman is that this directly led to Warner Bros.'s hiring Chris Terrio to write the screenplay for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (I'm sure this was due to Ben's influence with Chris since they both worked on Argo together). And, no question, Zack Snyder is, indeed, a great visual director (Man of Steel, 300, and Watchmen all demonstrate this).

Furthermore, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also has these things going for it: 1.) the first time Batman and Superman will appear together in a live action film; 2.) the first appearance of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince in a live action film; 3.) Ben Affleck will go all out of his way to be a great Batman/Bruce Wayne to overcome the stigma of having played Daredevil in the poorly received movie of the same name and to also prove wrong all the people who criticized his casting as Batman; 4.) having directed the widely praised Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and Argo, Ben Affleck has proven to be a talented filmmaker and his collaboration on B v S will help it immeasurably; 5.) Warner Bros. will go all out of their way to ensure that B v S will be a great movie to secure their plans of building a lucrative shared cinematic universe for their DC comic book superheroes; 6.) the teaser footage from B v S that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 demonstrated that this movie is going to be something special; and 7.) B v S will directly pave the way for Justice League.

Mark my words, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is going to be a huge, worldwide blockbuster. It might end up making a billion dollars worldwide during its theatrical run in 2016. And since it's confirmed that Justice League is being shot back to back with B v S, we might see JL as early as 2017 (and there's a good chance that Chris Terrio will also write the screenplay for the Zack Snyder directed JL).

How is pointing out that a big worldwide gross does not always equal a good film, hating?
