    So apparently this happened. Thoughts?


    hmmm…. I can buy it so long as they bring back bat nipples. That way I can get a sense for the seriousness of the film and chortle to myself on occasion though out the movie.

    Outside of that…. maybe it could be worse. ūüėē

    I think this say’s it best:

    The 50+ Greatest Tweets about Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman

    An accident prone Englishman living in the Netherlands:



    At this point I’m just pretending it didn’t happen.


    I’m very optimistic and excited. Ben has done great works since Daredevil and Gigli. There are many actors that have had to redeem themselves. I don’t think there should be a template for who could play Batman the best. Batman is a pretty household name, I’m pretty sure people would go if he was played by Rob Schneider or Orson Scott Card. Hell, if there was a Ben Affleck biopic, and they cast Batman as Ben Affleck, people would still go watch it.

    I’d go on, but it would just feel like I ripped off Patton Oswald and Andre the Black Nerd’s post about it.


    I will reserve judgement mainly because I wasn’t too keen on the idea of Heath Ledger as the Joker when that news first came out. He certainly proved me wrong then so I’ll give Ben Affleck the benefit of the doubt.


    I wonder what changed Affleck’s mind from his statements years back that wearing a costume and playing a superhero was humiliating. I’m guessing money and/or public perception of superheroes now, but I kinda want to know. He’s a fine actor so he’ll probably do okay, though he’s definitely a better director.

    Nobody is normal, a normal person is just someone you don't know very well.


    Oh yeah, I should probably post this here:

    One of my favorite responses (personally, I am not convinced he is right for the role yet even tho he already has the chin for it haha) is this.
