Ben Affleck is Batman

Funny how just last week I mentioned Christian Bale might be back as the Dark Knight for the new Batman/Superman film, but just a few hours ago it was announced that Ben Affleck will be Batman.  I definitely disagree with this choice.  I disagree for a couple reasons, first off is the fact that the last super hero outing that Affleck tackled was Daredevil, a movie which didn't do well at the box office nor did it  create enough positive buzz with comic book fans.  Second reason is, Affleck isn't the greatest actor in the world, and is dead wrong for the role, this is of course my opinion and I could be wrong when the actual film comes out in a couple years but this is how I feel at this moment.  Thirdly, Warner Brothers is loosing out big by not bringing back Bale as Batman.  He has a built in fan base for the role he's filled for six years now with an origin story already told.  Why not use him again?  You can see a link to a youtube video I made here for further thoughts on the topic.
