Personally, it's biiter-sweet. On one end, Affleck is a part of the Batman team. On the other end, he's acting and not directing. I knew from the moment I finished watching "Gone Baby Gone" that his place was behind the camera, not in front of it. So while I think he MAY do a decent Bruce Wayne (but... come on, Bale has won't be topped by him in a two piece suit), I'm very wary of him as Batman. This being for two reasons. First: how much more physical can his batman be over Bale's when he's in suit? Will he be kicking at all? Will SCOTT ADKINS in fact be his stunt double??? Second: What will he sound like wearing the mask? He has to mask his voice. That was something Bale did right. For as much shit as he got for that voice, THAT is the voice in the comics. Alfred mentions it in Blind Justice, and Tim Drake mentions it to Jean-Paul Valley in Knightquest.
ALSO: The way the suit looks will make a huge impact on whether or not Affleck will be taken seriously and be given a fair shot.
I'd like to hear your opinions on whether or not you think he'll play a good Caped Crusader and your reasoning why.
