Ben Affleck is seventeen months older than Christian Bale, marking the first time the actor taking on the role of Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman is older than the actor who last played the role in a live action movie, since the modern movie sequence started in 1989. In all other Batman roles since, the actor succeeding the role has been younger than the actor who previously played the character. Val Kilmer took the role from Michael Keaton, and he is eight years younger. George Clooney, who is eighteen months younger, took the role from Kilmer. Bale is thirteen years younger than Clooney. The first, and only other, time this happened was in 1949, when Robert Lowery took over the role from Lewis Wilson, who played Batman in 1943. See more »

This film is crucial to the extended universe that DC is trying to build, but it feels highly derivative of better stories and continues to demonstrate the misuse of the iconic characters mentioned in the title. Plus Jesse Eisenberg feels wildly mis-casted.
