It has been a month since the announcement of Ben Affleck as the next actor to portray Batman. Initially I went “whaaaat?” however I have trust that Affleck has the acting chops and backbone to convey a post Bale dark knight.
|Internet reactions to Affleck looked like this (we think)|
Will the character be a new variant or a recast with the same continuity. I would love to say the latter to build on the world so well created by Chris Nolan, but I imagine it will be a new imagining; and at least we may have a certain ex-Bond actor playing Alfred Pennyworth. So perhaps this will be the second Gotham reboot in the last ten years.
Lets give a Affleck a chance after all. Cavill was great as Superman, and he should play well with Daredevil.
On the site before we have featured creative versions that fans have filmed of their favorite comic books hero. (Grayson for example)
On the topic of Superheroes, it would be particularity remiss of me to not feature this video below. It really is a top notch Wolverine fan film, that manages with relatively zero budget to be a little above average, and dare I say much better than the first Origin movie. Keep your eye on these dudes, very nice work guys. It has a very clever feel, and manages to not lose the comic vibe.
