Debate of the Day: Are You Optimistic or Pessimistic About Batman vs. Superman Now?


It’s been a whirlwind of casting choices for Batman vs. Superman over the last few months, and it appears all the major players have been set, barring any unforeseen mystery villains that might crop up. To recap we have:

Henry Cavill: Clark Kent/Superman

Amy Adams: Lois Lane

Ben Affleck: Bruce Wayne/Batman

Gal Gadot: Diana Prince/Wonder Woman

and now Jessie Eisenberg: Lex Luthor

And I guess Jeremy Irons as Alfred, but I don’t think anyone’s complaining about that. It’s Affleck, Gadot and Eisenberg that have been the most controversial choices. As for me, I’m pro-Eisenberg, I think that could be really cool, anti-Gadot because I think it’s risky to give someone so unproven such an important role in this film and future ones, and neutral on Affleck because he’s a great actor, but it has never stopped feeling like an odd choice. And I remain ever-skeptical of Snyder directing the whole thing, as he’s incredibly hit or miss. I think he’s the riskiest pieces of the puzzle here.

So, what about you?
