I was at geek ground zero (Fan Expo Canada 2013) when the news dropped that Ben Affleck was gonna be the next Batman.
I personally have nothing against Affleck and I had no desire to see anymore Batman films anyhow (especially not ones with the new "Man of Steel"), but there were a lot of people kvetching and complaining about it at the con and on the internet.
All this backlash, including a very loud and obnoxious Batman costumer who kept yelling about it and thought he was hilarious, now has me coming out in full support of Ben Affleck as Batman. In fact, Sarah and I want to see an ALL BEN AFFLECK JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE.
Ben Affleck, Ben Affleck, Ben Affleck, and Ben Affleck star in BEN AFFLECK!
We even want him to play all the villains...and the hall of Justice. This just goes to show you there's nothing that a metric crap-ton of unneccessaraly hostile kneejerk fan reaction can't inspire me to support. LET'S PETITION THE WHITE HOUSE AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
