I'm withholding judgement. Everybody freaked out about Keaton, Bale, and Affleck when they were announced and they did decent jobs. This has me the most concerned considering the filmography, but I'll give him a chance like I did the others.

Dude has to gain some muscle though...

I can't think of Pattinson as anything other than "Shovel Face" due to Honest Trailers making fun of him.

Yeah. It’s been almost a decade since the Nolan Trilogy ended.
I guess I don’t see a point in revisiting Batman with a new take every 10 years. There has to be other DC characters that are interesting, right?

And I really like Batman but it seems overdone at this point

It fits the timeline. Before Batman ‘89, you had the Adam West Batman movie in the late 60s and before that the Batman movies of the 40s.
So it’s nothing new. It’s about that time.

Please tell me that they are not rebooting the entire Batman story from genesis?
Hollywood is a punchline that starts with "who hasn't played Batman. Spiderman or Hulk yet..."

Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck

Wasn't there outrage for all of them? I can't think of one casting decision that was met with open arms

Keaton got it the worse, I don't remember much about Bale

I'm not excited about the pick but I'll wait to see more (pics/trailer)

I've said this before, Clooney could have been the best - he can do suave and debonair in his sleep and dark and brooding - But Batman & Robin was such a shirt show he didn't have a chance

I think I've had enough of super heroes.
I want more, but I'd like more new characters than reboots of existing ones.

I am interested in seeing what Marvel can do with Xmen and Fantastic 4 though.

As for Batman, I'm ambivalent. It's been rebooted enough times. I'll probably watch it when it's on Netflix or something.
