Warner Bros. announced Ben Affleck will star as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel and the news received various reactions.
Although some fans of the Batman movies were fine with the 41-year old taking over the role from Christian Bale, many were not happy. Immediately following the announcement, Twitter blew up with various reactions with trending topic, ‘#BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck.’
To be fair, Affleck has some experience playing a superhero. He starred in the movie Daredevil in 2003. And he’s a two-time Oscar winner, but that hasn’t stopped the jokes.
The hashtag had plenty of comical suggestions from casting actress Meryl Streep to the ‘old lady greeter at Walmart.’ Check out some of the funniest comments below.
