Outrage Over Ben Affleck As The New Batman
Let me just say that I'm outraged (OUTRAGED!) that Ben Affleck has been offered the role as the new Batman. Didn't anybody at Warner Bros. see Daredevil? Don't be fooled, people. Yes, Ben Affleck is one mighty fine director. (Ahem, Argo, The Town, Gone, Baby, Gone). But Batman? BATMAN!? What were they thinking?!
I mean, how can you take seventeen steps forward with Christian Bale as the Dark Knight, and then, take a million steps backward with Ben Affleck? The Batman franchise has gone from this in my mind:
God! I'm so aggravated.
