No dout all of you have hearted the news about Ben Aflac being Batman in Man of Steel 2. whitch is interesting but I'm not sure if he is the BATMANWith that being said in my opinion there has not been a difinetve batman on the silver screen. An example is the Superman franchise. WB has cast Three people in the 40 or so years as Superman for the big screen .Those people are Christopher Reeves, Brandon Routh and Henry Cavil and in all three cases I would say they are each Superman in there movies. Batman on the other hand I don't think there has ever been a actor who has been on screen and me think that is Batman. Micheal Keaton he was good in his movie. Christen Bale was a god Bruce Wayne but an ok Batman. ( the joe Schumacher movie never happened) I do want Aflec to be good in the movie but I just don't see him as the Batman
While not on the big screen, Kevin Conroy's voice, is always Batman's/Wayne's voice when I read Batman books.
Same. If they had a guy who looked and acted like Batman, with Kevin's voice, then you got me sold.
Kevin Conroy is like RDJ, no one can play their character better.
To be honest I don't think Henry Cavill could've been less Superman if he'd tried.
Not that I'm blaming him or anything, I think the makers of the film were dead set on having a new, dark, revamped Superman, and the scriptwriters didn't really give him much in the way of character scenes either.
Only Reeve has left his mark on Superman, Brandon was okay and Cavil still has to impress, Bale and Keaton have done a better job as Batman than Cavil and Routh did for Superman, but the problem is there haven't been any definitive Batman(in live action movies), when people think about Superman they think about Reeve, when people think about Iron Man they see RDJ but when they think about Batman they think about Batman, but he's harder to portray and there probably isn't any actor that can completely get the character right. Affleck could be good maybe even great but he probably won't become the character not completely.
