Ben Affleck’s Best Role Yet?
It was recently announced that Ben Affleck was gonna play Batman in the Man of Steel sequel and the news immediately broke the internet. Fanboys and moviegoers alike are up in arms and the cries of protest resounded on nearly every branch of social media.
Will Affleck make a good Bruce Wayne/Batman? I dunno. Many folks resented his performance as Marvel’s Daredevil, and they aren’t very supportive about his chances to make a positive impact on filling Batman’s cowl.
Personally, I have no qualms with Ben. I’ve actually liked just about every movie I’ve seen him in. I liked Daredevil, although I didn’t love it. Heck, I even liked Phantoms and Reindeer Games, so perhaps my cinematic opinion probably leaves much to be desired.
I’m just glad they didn’t give the role to Ryan Reynolds. He’s done enough damage to a great number of my favorite superheroes and/or villains.
So, while everyone was crashing thru the web trashing and bemoaning Warner Brothers’ latest actor selection, I wondered what it would be like if Affleck chose another role that he may be better suited for. Does he have the chops to portray ADDANAC CITY‘s favorite fallible father, Harvey Addanac?
What do you think?
