Right, so it took the internet all of 13 seconds to hate on director Zack Snyder‘s choice to cast Ben Affleck as the next Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, still rumoured to be titled Batman Vs. Superman.
Here are a few choice words of outrage c/o Twitter.
Ben Affleck is the Sharknado of action heroes

Ben Affleck would be a terrible choice as a handsome, white, slightly older rich guy in great shape.

In the new Ben Affleck version, the Batmobile is just a beige Prius

Batman’s lost his parents and like 4 Robins. Hasn’t he suffered enough? #Batfleck

In the Ben Affleck version, Batman’s parents kill themselves.

I’m really excited about Ben Affleck playing Batman because I think it will soon be my new favourite movie over Gigli and Reindeer Games.

Even Goku was pissed at the choice.
Quick, gather the Dragon Balls! We have to undo Ben Affleck as Batman!

Oh, and here are the two people that actually think this is a good idea.
