Ben Affleck is the New Batman!

Warner Brothers has hand picked Ben Affleck to be the new Dark Knight starring along side Henry Cavill in the upcoming Superman/Batman buddies/enemies movie.

Yes, THAT Ben Affleck.  The same one who starred in Daredevil and co-starred with Jennifer Lopez in Gigli.

I know, I know . . . people were also aghast when Christopher Nolan cast Heath Ledger as The Joker, and we all know how that turned out.  But the internet is going batshit insane with this news.  I kind of feel sorry for the guy.  There’s nothing worse than trying to meet the expectation of rabid nerds.  It’s nigh impossible.
