The numbers are against Ben Affleck as the next Batman to wear the caped crusaders costume based upon social media's Fizziology research firm. The media company estimated on August 23 that 71 percent of 96,000 tweets made within the first hour after the news broke were negative about the Batman casting plan.
The Dark Knight Batman flick left many around the country associating the comic film with tragedy, so they were looking for an actor who could make them forget the violence and show them more of the billionaire playboy. But Affleck is a devoted husband to Jennifer Garner, and he's never really had a reputation of being a playboy per se, so they aren't sure if he can pull it off.
The Dark Knight Rises sought to refocus the public's attention on the hero in the film, rather than the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Heath Ledger, but some question Ben's ability to be a hero since he isn't exactly built like one physically.
Bruce Wayne doesn't have to be buff physically or have a gaggle of women rotating in and out of his home and office in order to be a super hero worthy of fan obsession. Heck, he doesn't even have to be a billionaire to make the audience glad that Ben Affleck was chosen to star in the upcoming 2015 movie. But what the actor does have to do to woo and win his audience is to deliver the right balance of James Bond debonaire, Sylvester Stallone strength and Bruce Willis wit at the appropriate moments in the film.
