Meet The New Batman
Ben Affleck lands the role, and the internet is NOT happy about it.
In breaking news that we found out thanks to countless facebook updates, Ben Affleck will be playing the role of Batman in the second “Man of Steel” movie, set to be released in 2015. The comments made about the decision on facebook, twitter, and other social media, nearly broke the internet.
“Ben Affleck? There’s one movie I won’t be going to the midnight showing of”
“Learning that Ben Affleck is replacing Christian Bale as Batman just ruined my night…it’s like learning there is no Santa Claus.”
“I’d rather watch fat Val Kilmer play Batman again before Ben Affleck. Have we forgotten about Daredevil already???”
Am I the only guy in America willing to give him a chance at Batman before immediately declaring him the worst Batman ever? So he wasn’t a good “Daredevil”… who cares? How many of us had ever even HEARD of Daredevil before that movie? Affleck can pull this role off. If you can find it in yourself to put aside the “insta-hate”, go see it with an open mind in 2015. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think Affleck may just be the surprise treat of the show.
