8 23 13 Bearman Cartoons Batfleck Ben Affleck trades in Daredevil for Batman costumesLook at me posting three times in a week.  Had a quick 30 minutes to pull this off but had to put my two cents in on Ben Affleck formerly known as half of Bennifer and now known as Batfleck being announced in the role of Batman in the next Superman movie.   I have no issues with Ben as an actor and actually enjoyed him in Daredevil even though the critics and box office did not..   But with superhero roles being so rare, I kind of feel that if you had your chance as one, then someone else should get a turn.

You listening Ryan Reynolds?  Any other actors you know played multiple heroes in different movies?

  1. I’ve been shocked by the freak out over the announcement.

  2. Comedy Plus says:

    The name is familiar but I could walk past Ben and not know who he was. We just don’t watch television or the movies.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  3. George Ford says:

    Sounds like people are protesting with the same outrage that came when Michael Keaton was announced in ’89. I’m gonna give Ben the benefit of the doubt and hope he doesn’t Affleck it all up.

  4. Deb says:

    I don’t know the movie, but I’m sure he did fine.
    I do know that you did a great job on this comic. Especially since you did it in 30 minutes.

  5. Christina says:

    Eventually all super heroes will be played by robot drones.

    Great cartoon! My husband worked on the toy line in the 90s around the time of Batman and Robin with George (now a Sondheim musical). Curious what twitter would have said about that movie if it had been around then.

  6. buddhakat says:

    OK, but I want to know when the Bearman movie will be out and who will play you, Bearman?


  7. Mark Stokes says:

    I’m fighting the urge to bat-urp!

  8. David Hurley says:

    I’m keeping my mouth shut, but I like your drawing Bearman.

  9. Binky says:

    Like always, Hollywood gives all the prime rolls to a very select few. I’m sure there are many unknown actors who would be great as Batman. And I could play his sidekick, Wombatman.

  10. frigginloon says:

    Doesn’t he have a low crotch and bow legs? Hmm, I think he does ….

    Sheez, they might as well make Seth Green Batman

  11. frigginloon says:

    Hey Bearman, it would be much more fun to play ….see what happens to actors who play a superhero. Me first ….

    Toby Macquire : Spiderman to Seabiscuit

    Adam West : Batman to The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood

    Lynda Carter : Wonder Woman to guest appearance on the Muppet Show

    Sam J. Jones : Flash Gordon to umm?

  12. I hate Ben Affleck he has this stupid nose blocked face and after this no kid will ever buy a batman costume, horrible,

  13. Tony McGurk says:

    I think Danny Devito should get a go at playing batman. I don’t know why I think that but I think it would make it more interesting

  14. Chris Evans — The current Captain America also played the Fantastic Four’s Human Torch in both of the Fantastic Four movies.

    Halle Berry — Both Storm of the X-Men and Catwoman (in a movie many would like to forget)

    Kirk Alyn — Superman and BlackHawk

    Also, Affleck played George Reeves in “Hollywoodland.”

  15. Coasterbear says:

    This was the main topic of conversation in the shop all day, and the outrage is VERY real. I’m taking a “wait and see” attitude, sort of like I did when they announced Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. (get a drunk to play a drunk. GENIUS!)

    Once the news is no longer fresh, it should calm down. I would also like to echo George Ford’s request of you doing various superheroes.

    Did you see what Richard Dreyfuss tweeted? I’ll try and embed it here:

    You read for a part, you feel good about it, you feel confident, then they cast Ben Affleck.— Richard Dreyfuss (@RichardDreyfuss) August 23, 2013

  17. Joseph says:

    I probably won’t watch it. I haven’t seen Batman movies since Keaton’s. It’s become too dark and gritty for my liking. There’s too much doom and gloom in real life and then for me to pay to see a movie like that. No thanks.

    I prefer the funny Batman of the 70’s TV show. Bright, cheery and in full blast color. I guess that’s why my comic is so technicolor.

  18. Nate Fakes says:

    As long as it’s better than Gigli, I MIGHT check it out.

  19. Jason Salas says:

    Personally, I’d like to see Justin Timberlake as Batman. Oh, and it’s a musical too.

  20. I don’t care. I guess…
    But I do care when it comes to JAMES BOND! I hate Daniel Craig as Agent 007.
    Ahhhh… I really do. I’m probably crazy but to me RobbiE Williams, the singer, would have been perfect for this role. lol
    Love the cartoon btw, Bearman.

  21. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Most of the people I know from the movies are already dead. (I don’t spend much time in theaters) I have heard of Ben Afleck and I have heard of Batman so I guess they both have something in common.)

    I do like the idea of Danny DeVito as Batman. I really think all movies should be comedies.

    I wrote something in answer to your comment on my Hospital Humor that you might want to read.
    I hope you don’t use it for a long time though.

  22. Bill Murphy says:

    I love the huge jaw you gave Ben. Great job! 😀

  23. So this is a Ha-va-d bat-cave, huh? I thought there’d be equations and **** on the wall.

  24. Andro says:

    You are a thirty minute genius Bearman
    this one is absolutely brilliant, though how
    can they even think of Ben Affleck? 🙁 🙁

    Anyway he could be good, or just plain hopeless 🙁 lol

    At least we have your expertise in
    cartooning to enjoy so that’s one thing 🙂

    Have a fine rest of Monday Bearman and keep up the great work…

  25. Tim Green says:

    My son and I sat around the other night thinking of who should be the next Batman. My favorite suggestion was Steve Buscemi! That would be freaking hilarious! 🙂

  26. I have high hopes. It should be an epic movie.

  27. Jande says:

    I’ve never understood the rages that people go through about actors. Maybe that’s because I prefer animated movies, preferably 2D-types. Although recently we’ve been watching some hilarious Dungeons and Dragons inspired flicks on YouTube.

    But yeah, the sturm und drang over a director’s choice of actor for a comic book character on Twitter made me turn it off for a couple of days.

  28. I don’t really get the flap over him being Batman… I suppose it could be worse… they could cast Michael Keaton as Batman!

  29. Gruhn says:

    Great one Bearman!

  30. Tyler says:

    I’m reserving judgment until I’ve seen the movie. I hope he does justice to Batman doing justice.
