Last week we collected some of our favorite Twitter responses and photoshops about Ben Affleck playing Batman in Man of Steel 2, opening July 17th, 2015. Affleck wasn’t on our shortlist, but I don’t seem to have the rage others have for this news. Analytics firm Fizziology estimated 71% of the tweets about Batfleck within an hour of the news breaking were negative.
But it wasn’t all negativity. At least a few big names recently voiced support. Val Kilmer, who played Batman in the horrendous Batman Forever (1995), tweeted this:
Did somebody say Val Kilmer and Batman?
We will never not post this.
Also voicing support was Joss Whedon, who tweeted this:
And another Batman, Adam West, offered advice.
We’ve also been collecting more Batfleck memes, GIFs, and tweets this weekend. Our favorites start on the next page.
