Well i hope they come out and say SURPRISE !!! We were just messing with ya all ! but sadly that won’t be true.
News that Ben Affleck has been officially cast to play Bruce Wayne aka Batman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel hit Twitter by storm last night, spreading instantly all over the world and evoking some of the most heated reactions and discussions we’ve seen in a while.
The actor who gave us Daredeviland Gigli is going to be the next Batman? Thinking about that too much can make your head spin, which is why it’s best to kick back (and relax until 2015 when the movie arrives) and enjoy the fun responses that have poured in.
Well that’s the end of the cool Batman as we know it and now same will happen to it what Tobey did to the Spider-Man.
Really looking forward to seeing Affleck bring the depth and gravitas to Batman that he brought to Daredevil and Gigli.

You read for a part, you feel good about it, you feel confident, then they cast Ben Affleck.

Ben Affleck is Batman?!? Ugh, Warner Brothers read a freaking comic, Bruce Wayne is Batman. Ben Affleck is an actor/director.

Be thankful Ben Affleck said yes. You know James Franco was next on that list.

Casting Ben Affleck as Batman sounds like something The Joker would do to create a distraction at the nerd bank.

In the Ben Affleck version, Batman's parents kill themselves.

Now that @BenAffleck is Batman in MAN OF STEEL 2 it's clear this is just a ruse to save American hostages in Vancouver.

I've just seen Christian Bale going to Affleck's apartment with some Huey Lewis records and an axe.

Spend ten years working your way back into everyone's good graces. Win an Oscar. Then you get cast as Batman, and BAM! You're Gigli again.
