This backlash is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Affleck has become more than a decent actor the last years. Look-wise, he's pretty much spot on for Bruce Wayne, all he need is to bulk up. His accent might be unlucky, but I'm sure they wouldn't have cast him if they could work around it.

Anyways, I finally saw Dredd. They should cast Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, and Carl Urban as Batman.

I'm just confused about him going back to super hero movies considering Daredevil was the low point of his career. He's got the chops, but super hero movies are better with unknown actors.

Daredevil was going to be terrible no matter who was in it. Replace Affleck with any other 30 year old actor at that time, you've still got a weak villian and a flimsy love interest. It was weak all over.

Personally I thought Man of Steel was far too sentimental so I don't know if I hold up too much hope for a sequel. The trick will be to properly attribute Bruce Wayne to the film as a viable character, rather than someone Clark stumbles upon after a few flashbacks or awkward conversations with Lois.

By the time it comes out it'll be well over a decade, hardly soon. And the reason I bring up Colin Farrell was as far as I remember (and it's been quite some time), he was the only one who didn't take it seriously. His character was hilariously absurd.

No matter who they picked there'd be a bunch of people whining. I'm interested to see Ben Affleck's interpretation. Although as soon as I heard I asked if Kevin Smith was writing/directing and would Batman spend most of the film hiding behind a rock.

Did they have to have Snyder direct again? What if they'd given Affleck the directing job instead of Batman?

He was equally awful. The Kingpin was brilliant but never fully realised.

Affleck will/may be directing the Justice League as far as I remember. Snyder wouldn't give up this sequel after MOS brought in a few hundred million.

His first standalone film will have him and Robin chasing after Catwoman, who is probably a lesbian, but not really, although I'm not sure.

Gal Gadot, some chick from the Fast & Furious films, has been cast as Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. Facially, she looks great, and with a couple of months bulking up in the gym, I think she'll look the role perfectly. No idea about her acting abilities or screen personality though.

Not sure what direction they are planning with the movie though. Is this a Man of Steel sequel anymore, or is it a Trinity movie? Worlds Finest with a cameo from Wonder Woman? Do Warner even a have a plan at this point? I'm getting the feeling Nolan and Goyer aren't the ideal men to lead this new cinematic universe..

Edguy, this might be the setup to the long talked about Justice League movie. Why else would they have Green Arrow and Flash TV shows, a Batman/Superman movie, and now Wonder Woman unless they were planning on it leading into a big joint movie...

This is crass as anything, but that girl does not have the rack to be Wonder Woman, and I sincerely doubt that she has the capacity to get the build for it either. Is she even tall? Wonder Woman is meant to be an Amazonian goddess who can stand at eye level with the men, she should be able to break their hearts as easily as she can break their necks.

She is 5'9" so she isn't towering but it's not like she is short...

See Christian Bale about bulking up fast for a role...he went from skeletal in "The Machinist" to fit and muscular in "Batman Begins" in a matter of months- more than enough time for her to put on some muscles.

1. Bra padding.

2. Wonder Woman is much more than her cup size. Her strength and power comes from her attitude and demeanor, not just her body type.

I think it needs to be said that Ben Afflec is not the reason that Daredevil failed hard. For one thing, the choice of build for the Kingpin was terrible. Taking the actor's skin color out of the equation (because him being black isn't the problem), he didn't have the body mass or the attitude to be the Kingpin. I'm sorry, but when I see the kingpin, I expect to see someone who is as BIG as they powerful. There was also too much creative liscensing I think, but this is about the time that they had the Fantastic Four and I hated that movie franchise too.

Man of Steel, I liked it. But I think that Superman being a symbol of hope represents Jor-El's idea of hope for both Krypton and Earth, of what the two societies could achieve together one day. I think that I am also glad that they went in this direction, rather then making some boring origin story of superman. They attempted to tie in specific moments of Superman's past on Earth with moments of his modern day life. It wasn't Superman Returns bad, and that is what I wanted more then anything out of the movie. It was everything that I expected.

Things like originality are concepts that are becoming more foreign to movie producers and directors. So taking movies like Man of Steel and Star Trek Into Darkness into new directions will be the key to making movies enjoyable for everyone.

The standard for Superhero movies were considerably higher when Returns came out, than when the original came out, tho.

That may be true, but that doesn't make the movie any better, and the standard for Superman movies wasn't high at all when Returns came out. If you can excuse the original movie, you can excuse Returns (not that you're obligated to excuse either!)

Superman Returns is like the retro throwback of cars. All plastic and a blatant attempt at trying to rekindle what made the older cars great. If it had been something that wasn't trying to replicate the Christopher Reeves-style of superman movies, then it would've been better. Personally? I prefered the animated series superman more.

Denzel Washington, who was once rumored to be up for the role of Lex Luthor, is having his name flung around as being involved in the franchise as the new Green Lantern, John Stewart. This would tie in directly with the long rumored Justice League movie as this would make it FOUR of the key members involved with the chance that Green Arrow and Flash might cross over from their TV shows.

Stewart is the third character to wear the green ring but has played second fiddle to his successor and predecessor over the decades. He is best remembered outside of comics for his role in the Justice League cartoons.

You aren't the only one who suggested he would be a good fit with a Shazam movie, but the Superman movie all but killed any potential Shazam movie.

Don't tell Clint, Chuck, Arnold, Bruce, Dolph, Sylvester, Jean-Claude and other action stars of similar age or much older that he's too old for the part...

I'm not saying he's too old for an action movie, just maybe a little too old to play a character that's supposedly in his early-mid thirties?! Besides, the DC universe will hopefully be a long lasting cinematic universe, so an actor signing on to a major role should be able/willing to reprise his/her role in the future :)

I haven't seen them, but I'd expect them to be amusing enough.

That's the whole point of the movies, amusing action. And the whole point of comic book movies is suspension of disbelief.

Stewart's age isn't pinned down, he could be in his 40s as a retired Marine with a second career as an architect when he gets his ring in this version....

We don't. I was just throwing out some possibilities about his age could be explained away based on his being a Marine and an architect being strongly entrenched parts of his backstory.

Hey, anything's better than a fighter pilot who gets the ring and then immediately murders a few people in a parking lot.
