14 most hilarious reactions to Ben Affleck being cast as Batman

Surprised BatmanSuperhero casting is a tough job. There are a billion and one nerds waiting to burst into a frenzy at the news that you’ve cast the guy from Gigli as Batman. That’s right. In case you’ve just woken from a coma, Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Bruce Wayne for the Superman v Batman movie.

Naturally, the entire internet had something to say about this. So we went out and picked some of the most hilarious (over) reactions to the news. We’re omitting the 250,000 who posted some variation on “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore”, because really they’re just a bunch of drama queens and they say things like that when their mother brings home a different brand of toilet paper…

Sir, your casting process is broken…

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, but then we said “Nah” and cast Ben Affleck instead. – LadyTrekka on Reddit

Or maybe the casting directors had been hitting the bottle?

    Really people?! Everyone thought casting Heath Ledger as Joker was a terrible idea… making references to 10 things I hate about you, referencing A knights tale… and you know what? Didn’t he do a FANTASTIC job?! Plus Ben agreed that Daredevil was severely disappointing due to the writing and vision of the directors… give him the benefit of the doubt… if he fails… then hate away.
