Batman is one of the world’s most famous and most popular heroes. Many of us have fantasized at one point or another about putting on the cape and cowl and standing up for all that is right in the name of good.
It would be awesome wouldn’t it? Driving around the Batmobile, beating up bad guys, saving the world, hooking up with chicks in skin tight costumes… Sounds like an awesome life and surely everything that was mentioned in the previous sentence would be a marked improvement on even the best of our lives.

I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part.
Seriously, who thought putting nipples on the Batsuit was a good idea?
The actor added, “I tend to look at it like this – let’s just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up. He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing.”
That is, if Affleck can handle the disgruntled fans.
The Argo actor recently admitted on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that he wasn’t ready for the Batfleck backlash.
“[Warner Bros.] said, ‘Just don’t use the Internet for a couple days,’ and I said, ‘I handle sh*t. I’m very tough,'” he said. “So I saw the announcement, I look on this thing, I look down at the first comment – it’s like, ‘Ben Affleck is going to be Batman,’ – the first one just goes ‘Nooooooo!’
“So we’re going to be luddites for a while, kids!”
