The world came to a grinding stop when Warner Brothers announced that writer/ director/ actor Ben Affleck would portray the Dark Knight. The response from the internet, and the fan community, was less than enthusiastic. So what does Ben Affleck think about the backlash of him being Batman? Affleck recently appeared on Jimmy Fallon and discussed being a dad and his upcoming role in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman.  

Start the clip at 1:49 to get to the Batman material.

Yep, he's still not the right guy for this...and with the Bieber rumor of being Robin, that would be so funny.

Haters hate. The same f.ucking haters will be lining up in their Batman costumes with nipples on opening night.

He's a fine choice. This guy is down to earth and loves comic books. Plus he's american and not a douchebag like Bale.

 ElBaz, I hear you man, C. Bale suck ass in all 3 Batman Movies... and that horrrrrrrrrible bat growl voice wtf??  I get it he has to not use his real voice sound but that growl mummble slurred B.S was a joke...

He's a good actor and all but I fear how he'll look in the mask with that extra large chin of his...

I'm not perfect by a long shot. I mean, my forehead is so big it's actually a fivehead!

Go f*ck yourself Eibaz and you too Thezillaturd...I hate the idea of this guy being batman, he's all wrong for the part in every damn way possible and I don't f*cking wear a batman costume, not even close to being a comic book geek, just a movie lover and you two douchebags are in the minority when it comes to who hates and who loves Christian Bale as Batman...Zillaturd, if you have issues with how Bale used his voice in the batman movies, you should take it up with the director...

Just for everyone's info, BIEBER IS NOT GOING TO BE ROBIN. That news scared the shite out of me.. haha but it has been confirmed to be something for/from "Funny or Die."

anyway, I still feel pretty good about the casting choice, especially after seeing him talk a little bit about the role, and with Affleck being a director and saying what Snyder has come up with is "brilliant" that definitely gets me going a bit more for the film. I'm very stoked about it and think this is a great choice. I really liked Bale and Nolan's take, but I think this interpretation of the Dark Knight is going to OWN. Just see how good Goyer and Snyder did with the origins of Kal-El.... think of how they will bring a weathered batman to the scene. Everything is going to be awesome....

If Mr. Mom can make a great Batman, I'm willing to give Affleck a chance.

 Still not excited about it, but I'm trying to keep an open mind.  While I don't think Affleck is a stellar actor, he is a fantastic director, and even manages to get good performances from himself...so the possibility for a good performance is there...and Zach Snyder seems to get good performances out of people.  So yeah, not excited about it, but have ceased my complaining about it.  LOL

Yes, I said it (along with thousands of other geeks).  And I stand by it.
