When I first saw that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman, I instantly hated it. He is definitely not what I had in mind. To be honest, I hadn’t had anyone in mind. After Christian Bale, I kind of gave up on guesses and suggestions for Batman. I actually secretly hated Bale as Batman. But, I never told anyone. People seemed so satisfied with his performance. I think Heath Ledger had something to do with it. However, Christian Bale wasn’t the worst Batman. Val Kilmer always comes up when “the worst Batman” is discussed.
My favorite Batman was Michael Keaton. When I was a little girl, I had a little crush on Michael Keaton. I think it started with “Night Shift” Or “Mr. Mom”. I just thought he had a sexy little something about him.
After some consideration, I am now open to Ben playing the caped crusader. I hope he nails it and proves everyone wrong. If he sucks, it’s “Gigli” all over again and who knows if he’ll recover this time.
