    While I’m keeping a neutral stance about Ben Affleck. I’ll just wait to see the film when it comes out.

    I do have to say I was satisfied about the way Michael Keaton handled the role under cape and cowl…

    I don’t understand who all these people are who think Affleck is a bad choice. I think he’ll do a fine job. So much depends on the story and director anyway that who is in the suit is almost secondary.

    I liked Daredevil too. I think Roger Ebert said it was a good movie and very close to being a great movie.

    I was particularly interested in Hollywoodland when it came out. George Reeves is probably only second to my father in influence. While Affleck doesn’t particularly resemble George Reeves, (William Peterson formerly of CSI, looks a lot like him) I think he did a great job. I read that he loaded hours of George Reeves’ dialogue on his iPod to listen to his inflection and speech patterns.

    The only thing about Hollywoodland that I object to is that it seems to support the theory that Reeves committed suicide. This is something that I don’t want to accept.

    Since i despised the last three Batman films (well, the second and third; the first was annoying but harmless like {as Heinlein put it} dead yeast in beer), i have no problem with casting someone else as Batman.
