I'm not crazy about it. I think they made a big mistake casting him as Batman. He's better suited for the Green Arrow.

I still think affleck will play a good Bruce Wayne. He has a cocky attitude that I would think will translate well.

I'm skeptical of Affleck as an actor. What's wrong with taking a chance on a nobody? Affleck has had his day.

I'm skeptical of yet another stupid superhero flick, but that's just me.

Ben Affleck gets a lot of crap, but he's a competent actor...nothing special but generally gets the job done. Mostly it will come down to direction. When its good, Affleck has had some great performances. When the direction is bad, Affleck doesn't exactly salvage the situation. But just as a reminder, Affleck was good in:

Chasing Amy
Boiler Room
Shakespeare in Love
Changing Lanes
State of Play
Argo
The Town

What I'm seeing in a broader sense is that the studio does not really care about this project (Justice League). While Avengers casting was expensive in some cases and always inspired, Justice League casting feels randomish (Affleck, Cavill) or downright bad (Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman). There is no brilliant director in love with the source material at the lead to make sure this enormous endeavor doesn't end catastrophically.
