Ben Affleck As Batman: The Internet Reacts

When Ben Affleck won the role of Batman in the next Superman film, the Internet went crazy. We were able to document one interaction that sums it all up.

  1. Your blooper video is gone already.

  2. Get the hell over your selves people!! God forbid the nerds get what they want when it comes to comic book movie casting. Their like spoiled kids at the store when their mom says no to getting something. I’m already sick of all the negative feed back on this whole Batman thing.

    • The nerds aren’t going to get the hot chick either…

    • Yeah dude, the nerds are like the only ones that don’t like this casting, it’s weird man. You know? I mean other casual film-goers and people who don’t read comics all love this idea of Affleck for the movie. It’s like just so awesome to be happy with any actor for any movie role.

      Rock on man!

      • The reason people don’t like it is because this bring back memories of Bennifer. When Affleck was pretty much a career rock bottom (Gigli, Daredevil). Those feelings are hard to shake. I just don’t see Affleck as a superhero.

        • Ben Who-fleck????

      • All You Think? Yeah I guess you took a global pole and went door to door during the weekend.

        • Cue

          If you referring to my post, I was being sarcastic in response to another comment. I was hinting that anybody could not like the idea of this casting (or like it for that matter). Regardless of whether they are heavily into comic books and Batman, or they are just a casual film-goer who enjoys seeing the right fit for a particular character.

          • *you are referring

      • I’m a nerd and I’m ok with Affleck as Batman. Seriously, give the guy a chance!

        • @ JediGuy1138 and Kels

          You aren’t even considered normal people anymore if you are okay with that. I revoke your common sense card now.

        • Same here. That fan poster makes me like the idea more.

      • I read comics and I am alright with it.

  3. Yeah I agree so fed up with all the bull that they are saying about the new batman casting. Sure the diehard 007 fans said the same about Daniel Craig and he turned out to be one of the best. So ladies & gents dry your eyes and get over it you’ll not be disappointed roll on 2015.

  4. The haircuts, that is the hardest I have laughed in ages. Poor LeVar Burton.

    • At least he didn’t have that Jheri curl nightmare going on in the actual show; Worf looked a lot worse in season 1 than the “Pansy” photo!

  5. I don’t care about Ben Affleck as Batman, I’ll wait until I have seen his performance. I’m just tired of seeing articles about it on every site I visit.

  6. “I Forgot My Phone”: to quote JG Ballard from way, waaaay back in the unimaginable primordial soup of pre-internet, pre-smart phone 1977, “This transformation of our private lives with the aid of video-systems and domestic computers is already at hand. Thus we may see ourselves at the turn of the century, each of us the star of a continuous television drama, soothed by the music of our own brain-waves, the centre of an infinite private universe. Will it occur to us, perhaps, that there is still one unnecessary intruder in this personal paradise – other people?”

    “The spherical mirror forms the wall of our universe, enclosing us forever at its heart…”

    • Okay, Ballard’s “awaiting moderation” while “kandylandy” right above me makes it through offering everyone a McClaren F1. Now that’s just funny. Well, it’s a step up from a 2CV, I suppose.

  7. Someone tell me where the Wasp is in that animatic, cause I don’t see it. Black Widow is the only female I see.

    • it’s at :17, 3rd from left

  8. That smartphone video is totally inaccurate

    There’s no way they’d still have battery life more than 3 hours after unplugging it from the charger.

  9. That Avengers animatic gave me more chills than the actual film. Plus, thumbs up for them on the Hawkeye outfit 😉

  10. You all can keep on defending Affleck’s pick as Batman but know one thing, nothing good will come out of it.
    The moment the nerds will boycott that movie Warner Bros. will lose revenue, lets admit it thats the only thing they care about. Affleck is not that big of a star to bring the masses of little girls to see him as Batman.
    the movie will suck like we all suspect it to be, how Warner Bros. expect make money from a failing Bafflick movie?
    They will have to reboot it again like they did After George Clooney gave it a try.

    i know that im not going to see a movie with Affleck as Batman and there are many more like me.

    • If they build Gotham and Metropolis, people will come.

      I’m not a huge fan of the idea of Ben Affleck for this role either, but it’ll probably make money whether some folks still dislike the idea in two years time. If the movie itself is absolutely terrible for other reasons than just Affleck, then I can see it making less than hoped for. But if it’s a decent enough film, a lot of film-goers will put up with seeing an actor they don’t like because the rest of the movie outways their dislike.

      • *outweighs

    • Your one of the ones who will complain but see the midnight show anyway. =p

    • Boycott? Who are you kidding? As Hannah said very accurately on the podcast: if all these angry nerds care so much about Batman that they even launch a petition against Ben Affleck, then they sure as hell aren’t going to miss out on the live action movie that has Batman AND Superman in it. There will be no boycott. It’s all just pointless nerd rage that will long have vented in two years time.


    • P.S – I know it’s They’re but I posted before I noticed the spelling error

  12. I like the Star Trek Poster; It’s very accurate.

  13. For every good Batman there is a bad batman… so in the scheme of things this sounds about right.
