Last night it was announced that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in the next Man of Steel movie and then… the Internet exploded and the whole world freaked out. The way everyone is reacting, you would think… I don’t even know what you would think. Let’s just say that the outrage about this is on another level.
Poor Ben Affleck. I happen to love the guy (he was amazing in Argo and seems like SUCH a nice person in real life), but even I have to admit that I just cannot see him as Batman. It sort of seems like it’s just a disaster waiting to happen.
So, since this is all anyone can talk about this morning, let’s look at the funniest tweets about Ben as Batman. People are, uh, pretty angry…
These people who think basically anyone would make a better Batman than Ben Affleck:

No. Please just… no.
— Michelle Gray (@grayz93) August 23, 2013
I mean… okay, yeah.
The drunken hobo that lives under the overpass would be a #betterbatmanthanbenaffleck I am still at a loss for words.

That’s a little… let’s not go overboard, okay?

2 Chainz… not always the best answer.
These people who are just sad and confused.

Even stranger than casting Ben Affleck as Batman was the choice to recruit Zooey Deschanel as the new Bane. #batfleck
