    Were Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender or Bradley Cooper all unavailable or something?

    I can only imagine Affleck collapsing during the first day of shooting after holding his gut for eight hours straight.

    Not sure what they're thinking to be honest. Following up on an act like Bale with Ben Affleck is madness.

    They really needed to throw more money at Bale, he was awesome imo.

    Bale was a good Bruce Wayne. But that Batman voice was obnoxious.
    Make Christian Bale Bruce Wayne and Michael Keaton Batman

    He might be better than we expect, the problem is even though he has done some good stuff in the last few years he still has this joke actor image that follows him around.

    Another Keaton fan here, while not a great Bruce Wayne he was a great Batmane.
    Bale was a great Bruce Wayne but at times went way over the top as Batman, something he can be guilty of in many films.

    I'm willing to give Affleck a chance though, he could look the part certainly as Wayne and Batman he could be ok if he goes with less is more.

    Kinda, but Bale does tend to overact and the voice in Dark Knight just made too many people laugh.

    When I first heard it I was a bit..wut... but I'd forgotten about it by the second film it was just part of him.

    It will be funny to see if Affleck tries to do a different voice also for batman.

    It was was ok in Begins and he toned it down a bit for Rises, but it did make for some funny spoof videos.

    I'm a fan of Keaton on general so I might be biased but I think Affleck needs to copy his style, spending the next year bulking up won't do him any harm either as that was one thing Bale nailed better than every previous actor.

    I'll give him a chance too. You never know.
    I thought Heath Ledger was a ridiculous choice for Joker. I was wrong.

    Absolutely, he was just fantastic.

    Bale was cracking in Equilibrium and American Psycho but I hated him as Batman/Bruce wayne - clinical, and soulless.
