There’s been a lot of backlash from Batman fans about Ben Affleck taking over the role when he’ll be teaming up with Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill to be in a movie that involves both Batman and Superman. In fact some people are pretty steamed about it. Most folks point to Affleck’s role as the Daredevil and how that movie was a flop. But people tend to forget that was eons ago and Affleck is 100 times more mature now and just might be able to pull it off.
Affleck is well aware of the bad press surrounding his new movie role and he decided to respond recently. He told Jimmy Fallon that “he’s a big boy” and that if he can handle an Oscar snub he can handle anything. Affleck thinks that despite the bad press that he’ll be able to win over fans. He likes the script and story and thinks it’s right in his wheelhouse.
I’m 50/50 on this but if I’m a betting man, I think that Ben Affleck is going to pull it off.
