Well, it seems like they're just going for a Brand Name with Affleck, although at 41 he's a bit old to be starting a franchise with. He's not bad, but he's not inspiring either.

As far as unknowns, the comparison with Cavill is not really fair, since Batman is a much more difficult and nuanced character to play. You'd need someone with a more proven track record. I wonder why they didn't go with Joseph Gordon Levitt, since he's a fantastic actor and (spoiler) Bale gave him the Batcave at the end of Dark Knight Rises.

If I were to go with a lesser-known actor, I would have gone with Bradley Cooper. He's got the millionaire playboy look down pat. He's got the physicality. And he's proven he's got the chops to play a psychologically wounded superhero after his performance in Silver Linings Playbook.
