Ben Affeck’s Named Batman, Replacing Christian Bale, Pissing Off Fans

Ben Affeck can’t catch a super-hero break.

The producer and star of ARGO, and winner of the Best Actor Oscar for his role in the movie, had to have risen above the period of his career where he was blasted for his portrayal of Daredevil, from DC Comics, especially given that it seemed so long ago in the past.

No.

When Warner Bros announced that Ben Affeck was going to be Batman in Batman and Superman, Twitter and social media exploded with hundreds of negative comments, and they’re still coming today.

What does this mean?

It means that Christopher Nolan had the right formula in asking Christian Bale to play Batman within a, well, dark knight storyline – any deviation from that could spell disaster.

But this blogger’s willing to give Ben Affeck the benefit of the doubt.

Stay tuned.
