Was Josh Brolin The Original Choice For Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman Movie?

EW: Hollywood actor Josh Brolin has hinted he was considered to take on the role of Batman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel but it was revealed last August that Ben Affleck would be taking over from Christian Bale.

The 46-year-old hunk, who stars in upcoming film Labor Day alongside Kate Winslet, confessed there were disagreements over the character hence why he decided to turn down the chance to play the caped crusader.

Of course he was, he's pretty much hinted it so much, both of them actually, that you can't say otherwise.

In my opinion Josh Brolin is a better choice for Batman then Affleck and it saddens me how the guy making the film dosen't even get a say in who he wants.

They only got Ben Affleck because after Argo they knew they could draw in more of an audience and they would have something to market him with, like "...and OSCAR WINNING BEN AFFLECK (ARGO) AS BATMAN". With Josh Brolin they don't really have that and that's why in my opinion it wasn't Josh who turned it down but it was pretty much Warner Bros telling him and Zack they didn't want him.

So all this crap from Zack saying how good Ben Affleck is and how he's the "best man for the job" is bullshit in my opinion.

Actually I think the reason why they chose Ben Affleck is because he is actually a good director. Having an actor who knows a lot about directing films (and who is actually good) is very useful (especially since Zack needs all the help he can get)

I could see him in the role.

"When you’re sitting in front of a computer it’s easy to go, ‘Well, I wish he would die. Send.’"

Hit the nail right on the head there.

If they had chosen him I may have at least attempted to watch this poor excuse of a film adaption of one of the best comic story lines ever.

In its current state, never.

i know i'm probably in the minority in thinking Affleck could make a good Batman, but damn, i'd have loved to see Brolin in the role.
