Ben Affleck Is The New Batman; The Top 10 Tweets

Ben Affleck Is The New Batman; The Internet Cries

A few weeks ago we reported that Warner Bros. had announced they would be casting a new actor to play Batman in the sequel to the Superman movie Man of Steel. Now, it's official; Ben Affleck has been cast to play Batman.

Yes, that's the same guy who destroyed the Daredevil character, but he did a great job in Argo so, well, there's that at least. We're pretty confused by the choice here, but we remember how people thought that Heath Ledger as The Joker was a horrible choice, and we all know how amazing he was in that role. Hopefully Affleck surprises us as well, but we can say one thing for sure; at least it wasn't Ryan Reynolds.

The reaction around the web was almost universally negative, and there's even a White House petition to remove Affleck as Batman, which will go over about as well as the one to get a Death Star built. And yes, Twitter went nuts when this was announced, so we decided to take a look at the top responses from everyone's favorite place to rant about what irks them.

So without further ado, check out the Top 10 Tweets about Ben Affleck as Batman:
