Short bio: 

Ben Affleck (born August 15, 1972) is an actor and filmmaker. He won two Academy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards.

Affleck began his career as a child actor, starring in the PBS educational series The Voyage of the Mimi (1984, 1988). He later appeared in Dazed and Confused (1993) and various Kevin Smith films including Chasing Amy (1997) and Dogma (1999). Affleck gained fame when he and childhood friend Matt Damon won the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting (1997). He then starred in high-profile films including Armageddon (1998), Shakespeare in Love (1998), Pearl Harbor (2001), Changing Lanes (2002) and The Sum of All Fears (2002). After a career downturn, during which he appeared in Daredevil and the much-derided Gigli (both 2003), Affleck received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in Hollywoodland (2006). His directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone, which he also wrote, was well received in 2007. He then directed, co-wrote, and starred in The Town (2010). For the political thriller Argo (2012), which he directed and starred in, Affleck won the Golden Globe Award and BAFTA Award for Best Director, and the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award and BAFTA Award for Best Picture. In 2014, he starred in the psychological thriller Gone Girl. Affleck will portray Batman in the DC Extended Universe, commencing with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and next in Suicide Squad (both 2016), and will direct, write and star in Live by Night in 2017.

I was watching Gone Girl and Googled Ben Affleck and realized that his politics are as bad as this movie.
I will not be watching anymore (cheesy-his words) Ben Affleck movies. Whydon't you put on one of those diaper pins and hug Michael Moore. Birds of a feather-you know the rest. Good luck and happy life. You all lost!!!

When I heard you were going to play Batman/ Bruce Wayne I thought; "oh no... worst choice in a long series of bad choices for my favorite Comic book, television, movie character, my hero, Batman. This is such a horrible idea. Total miscast." I am one of the biggest Batman fans I have ever met. A TRUE fan. And I was wrong. This was the best direction Batman has ever been taken in onscreen. Even when the writing has sucked (and at times it certainly has) and the directing, you've pulled it off truer to the comic, the mythology, while still adding value and depth and ... BEST BATMAN EVER. The suit is by far the best ever, the voice, Wayne... everything. You do some other stuff pretty good, directing especially. Wish they'd give you some more stuff to do with this character and these movies. Please don't leave.
