Batfleck Rises: The Funniest Internet Reactions To Ben Affleck As Batman in Man of Steel 2

Last night we learned Ben Affleck will be Batman in Man of Steel 2, opening July 17th, 2015. Although he wasn't on our shortlist, this casting wasn't much of a surprise. After all, he was the bomb in Phantoms.

Even less surprising was the internet's collective butthurtitude at the news. There's already a Change.org petition protesting Ben Affleck's casting, and social media has been loaded up with every possible joke, photoshop, and reference to Gigli, Daredevil, The Town, etc.

Much of the complaining reminds us of what people said when Heath Ledger was cast as the joker. It also reminds us of the 50,000+ complaints Warner received when they cast Michael Keaton as Batman. We'll see what Ben Affleck does with the role before we tell him to Argo f--k himself.

For now, we're collecting the funniest Twitter responses and photoshops about the Batfleck. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that some of the funniest reactions came from the Filmdrunk commenters, who collectively wrote all the best dialogue for a Southie version of Batman and Robin. Thanks also go to Pedestrian, Bleeding Cool, CBM, and THR for the assist.
