I'll ask what I always ask of remakes: What was wrong with the original?Akebobo said:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrLcnrnEqyI
Spike Lee's Oldboy remake. ??? indeed. I'm already leaning towards no, but Brolin might just save the day.

C'mon it can't be that bad. I don't think that he is the perfect choice for this role, but IMO he could play a convincing Bruce Wayne.Groovy Metal Fist said:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umDr0mPuyQc
How could Ben Affleck bring to life an eccentric billionaire who retreats to waging vigilante justice in an expensive bat costume to cope with the anguish of his parents being murdered in front of him? What in his repertoire indicates a capacity to do that? Of all the movies I've seen him in, he has never impressed me with his acting performance.
I wasn't moved in either direction on the Affleck choice. I think just about anybody that's halfway competent could pull off the role at this point. That being said, I have zero faith in the movie he's planned to be in.Akebobo said:Unpopular opinion time... It could work?

Not really, but keep in mind that this movie wont be centered around Batman/Bruce Wayne. He doesn't really have to play a difficult role. I doubt that they will dig deep (or at all) into Batman's past and his reasoning. Through out most of the movie he will be wearing his costume (if people really don't like him, there are some costumes that hide Batmans face =) ).Groovy Metal Fist said:I don't actually hate him on camera, but I've never been impressed by his acting work. Is there a specific role in has past that you think shows he has the capacity to bring this character to life?
