Ben Affleck Cast as Batman

Warner Bros. has recently announced that they have finally found the actor to play Batman in their upcoming sequel to Man of Steel: Ben Affleck. The news was soon buried under the negative reactions of fans from all over the Internet, to the point that the reactions became even bigger news than the casting announcement itself. Yep, Warner managed to out-Bay Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles announcement.

We here at Toonbarn don’t necessarily believe that Warner is infallible when it comes to casting decisions. One look at Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern is enough to show you that yes – they can make mistakes. However, we’ll reserve judgment until we actually see something substantial. Although we do wonder what was in the mind of the person who suggested Ben Affleck, and whether he was aware of the Daredevil movie and fans’ reaction to said movie. Maybe they saw how much everybody loved Ben Affleck’s Argo and thought:

“They love him now. Let’s cast him as Batman.”


Neil Raymundo

A cowardly and treacherous Toonbarn blogger who can transform into a McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. Secretly wants to replace Toonbarn Rob as leader of the Decepticons.
