Today (or yesterday, if you’re in a different time zone) (oh, hell. THURSDAY), Warner Brothers announced that Ben Affleck, of Chasing Amy and Argo fame, will be playing the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman/Superman film.
While this seems to have caused a rift in the fanbase, I’m torn. Part of me thinks, OH YES BEN AFFLECK IN THE BATSUIT AND IN SHIRTLESS SCENES WHERE HE’S ALL BRUISED. Another part of me is wondering if he can be dark and brooding enough for the role. Either way, I’m really excited about it.
