HERE IT IS! The “Batman V. Superman” Trailer! Why I Don’t Fear Ben Affleck’s “Batman!”

On the heels of the official “Star Wars” movie trailer, the new trailer for “Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice” is here!

Remember when the news that Ben Affleck has signed on to play Bruce Wayne in the new “Batman V. Superman” film has set the worldwide web ablaze with anger…but as you can see, he’s already been in one of the outfits, and it fit pretty well…

Ben Affleck As Superman

More on that in a moment, but first, let’s watch the trailer!

Zack Snyder’s BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is in theaters March 25, 2016!

It looks moody, serious, and Affleck looks great as Bruce Wayne/Batman!

There was a TON of negativity surrounding the announcement that Ben Affleck would join up with Henry Cavill’s “Superman” in the new film that pits the two superheroes against each other.

Time to look at the evidence.

Here’s the case against Affleck as Batman:

DVD_daredevil

DAREDEVIL.

Yes, it’s not a good movie. That said, much has been posted that this wasn’t the Director’s original vision…

And even though the film is much much hated, if you listen to the internet whisperers, they will claim that there is, in fact, a “real” version of the film that will change your mind. A “lost masterpiece”. The real version of the film that they didn’t get to release. Could it be true? Perhaps, and this could be just what the studio needs to put it back out there for the fan boys to see and re-evaluate.

There is, of course, one more strike against Affleck:

GIGLI.

It is considered one of the worst films ever made. That said, did you see it? Did YOU? NO. NOBODY DID!

“Gigli” might be the most hated movie never viewed. And even if you did watch it – not sure why you ever would, but if it was say, on a dare, then I forgive you.

Either way, it was a failed romantic comedy action caper, that he made with his then-girlfriend. He’s not the first Actor to make this horrible mistake: cue “Shanghai Surprise” with Sean Penn and Madonna….but more importantly, “Gigli” was NOT a superhero movie.

BEn Affleck As Superman

Also, did you know that Ben Affleck will be the only Actor to ever play both Batman AND Superman! And that’s why I think he deserves a chance.

Remember “HOLLYWOODLAND”?

It was Ben’s big comeback: a supporting role in the movie that looked into the death of the original Superman, George Reeves.

He did a great job in the film. He took a smaller role in order to win back fans. He captured the sadness and strength of the original TV Superman – especially the scenes when he realizes he will be typecast forever…no doubt how Affleck himself felt after the debacle of “Gigli.”

Ben Affleck George Reeves

Ben’s Amazing Comeback!

After his strong performance as Reeves, Affleck went onto direct “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town”, two terrific action films set in Boston. And then, there was that other successful film he just directed.

argo

Remember the Oscars? Remember the Best Picture winner “Argo?” My point is simply this: this is no longer the Ben Affleck of “Gigli” or “Daredevil.” This is a more mature Actor, who has become a terrific Director. I hope his maturity and talent will be used to bring another layer to the franchise….I, for one, was not a big fan of the last Batman OR Superman films.

Ben Affleck as Batman

In other words, to beat a dead horse of a phrase once again, “Argo Fuck Yourself”. Let’s give him a chance. “Man Of Steel” was far too ponderous and pretentious. Maybe Ben will “Afflack it up”…I, for one, cannot wait.

And in the few shots you see him, Ben looks great as Bruce Wayne!

And of course, here is the latest “Star Wars” trailer!

I’m a big fan of a serious attempt to reinvent Batman, and I think Affleck can do it! Let me know what you think!

  1. After thinking about, I think “give him a shot” – he’s surprising mostly because of the comparison to Bale – super heavy – and people really dug the first two, at least – the last one I felt was kinda a mess. And i think people were expecting someone older because of the rumors.

    But he’ll bring charisma & he had that weariness in Argo that an “older batman” would have. I don’t know that everyone was on board with Heath back in the day & look how that turned out…

    • Yes to all of your points, Vinny! If you saw “Man Of Steel”, you know that Superman exuded NO personality…Batman should be world weary if they are, in fact, going to be adversaries…SOMEONE has to have personality!~

      • Exactly. I was not wholly disappointed by MoS because I’ve a thing for Supes (first movie my parents dropped me off by myself, yeah carefree 70’s) but man did that thing drone on – I think I would’ve rather seen a separate movie about Krypton & what went down there…
