Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill Are Officially Out as Batman & Superman


Recommended Posts

Oh and The Flash Movie has been delayed...

 

Here's the part pertaining to Affleck and Cavill

 

Quote

Following the box office disappointment of “Justice League,” Warner Bros. has been reevaluating its approach to making movies based on DC Comics characters. The studio is not currently moving forward with Batman and Superman movies featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively. It is expected to recast the Dark Knight with a different actor for director Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman solo outing.

I remember from 2005 - 2008, I was watching disappointing Marvel sequels like X-Men: The Last Stand and Spider-Man 3, while Batman Begins released and then The Dark Knight tore the house down. I thought, "Geez, DC is so far ahead of Marvel right now."

 

10 years does a lot.

Not old enough. Plus doing that would make the film seem like some weird sequel to his films. 

 

1, he's pushing 70. 2, I'm totally OK with that. The Bruce in Batman Beyond should be old, but still look like he can throw a punch. He shouldn't look like he can barely stand for more than a few minutes.

This I agree with. Hell, I'd even be fine if he just did a short with a young guy being Terry talking about his experience as Batman.

I say go really weird.  Pull in all the past live action batmen and do something like what they are doing with the spiderman multiverse movie.  Just have Batman fight some multidimensional being that brings all the batmen together.  It would be weird but a lot of fun.  Would have been even better if they would have done it when Adam West was alive.

I think WB/DC should do this anyway... I have whole pitch for a big screen Crisis movie featuring The DC movie characters and TV show characters in a multi-film massive story that would destroy  Infinity War :p Too bad I'll never get to make it.:lol:

Unfortunate.

 

I wanted at least Man of Steel 2(like MoS way more than WW, btw).

I liked Affleck's Batman.

 

I liked Man of Steel and Cavill as Superman in general. Affleck is good as Batman but Justice League showed me that he no longer had the desire to get in the kind of shape to fit in that suit... either that or his head got fatter :p

 

But I'd make an argument for Affleck's Batman being the closest on screen interpretation we've had to the comic Batman to date.

I would totally watch your movie.

 

You could have classic superman too... I mean Brandon Ruth was basically playing the Reeves version of Superman.

How so exactly? Outside of a few great visuals and a fight scene?

 

Keaton never really nailed the physicality of Batman... he was too short, couldn't turn his neck and his fight scenes were shit. Plus his Batman was a hybrid the Adam West campy Batman of the 60's and the modern age Batman post Dark Knight Returns and Year One. 

 

Bale's Batman was closer to the modern interpretation of Batman, but lacked the scientific and Detective skills of comic Batman. Did Bale's Batman really seem like a guy who planned ahead? 

 

Affleck's older, more world weary Batman was the closest to how Batman is portrayed in the comics currently. A paranoid loner who hopes for the best but plans for the worse, is scientifically gifted and a brilliant detective. Plus he moved and fought like... Batman.  That's what I'm talking about. NONE of the Batman on screen have been perfect. But Affleck's comes the closest to how he's portrayed in the current comics in my opinion despite the quality of the movies he's been in.

 

EDIT:  Amy Addams is done as Lois Lane and let's slip that "They are revamping the DCEU"
