Curiously Questionable Casting!

Not everyone at Mutant A Day is always on the same page about Marvel and DC movies, and that is quite alright. With that, I’d like to ask; Is it OK to cast someone to play Batman based on their jaw line and/or bee-stung lips?!?!

It truly seems to be the case in regards to our dark knight. Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale, all modern day Batmans with killer jaws and/or lips that have surely been touched by a glossy wand!  Ben Affleck, though a good-ish actor, has the grandest jaw line of them all with a rich-bitch dimple where I’m sure he’ll store his bat-a-rang.

I’m not entirely, or really at all on board with this casting for one simple reason. I don’t find Ben sexy in that dark way Batman should be. Maybe he smiles too much? Or have none of us forgiven him for Daredevil?

All this and now James Spader as Ultron in the new Avengers movie! If Ultron is supposed to make me feel incredibly uncomfortable and creeped out…then perhaps that is some A+ casting right there!

Either way, we wouldn’t miss either movie!
