Look, I like Ben Affleck – as an actor that is. Jury’s still out on the rest. But I think he’s got all sorts of range, and potential. As long as he’s not playing one part, and I think we all know what that is.
He sucks ass at playing Batman.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate how he looks in the suit. I am all about the muscles and jaw porn. But him as an actor playing one of the most iconic characters of all time – HARD PASS.
He will reprise his role for The Flash movie. Lord, that movie is setting itself up to be as horrible as The Justice League.
Director, Andy Muscietti, says that he will play a “substantial part.” Has Musicietti not lived through 2020 with us? Have we all not suffered enough?
“He’s a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the movie. The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before,” Muschietti told Vanity Fair. “It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more related than we think. They both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the movie. That’s where the Affleck Batman kicks in.”
I guess people think we need more pain and suffering. Stop answering the bat-signal Ben!
The Flash is scheduled for release on June 3, 2022.
