  • Unusual Backlash to Ben Affleck as Batman



    The internet is a buzz today around Warner Bros. choice to cast Ben Affleck as the next Batman. The public reaction to this is predictable. What is not is the Change.org petition to have Ben Affleck removed as Batman.

    Change.org site is notorious for public petitions providing a voice for those seeking political and societal progression. This hard hitting cause site is for life changig issues - hmmm...is the issue of casting Ben Affleck as Batman?? ...I find it rather amusing that this is where one of these passionate discussion have taken root.

    John Rodden author of the petition writes:
    His acting skill is not even close to being believable as Bruce Wayne and he won't do the role justice. He's not built, nor is he intimidating enough for the role of Batman. His portrayal of Daredevil was atrocious and he's not remotely close to an action star. Please find someone else.
    The fans have signed this petition with reasons that Christian Bale is just a better choice to more indepth critiques on how Mr. Affleck does not hold the values or ability to portray such a character.

    I'm left wondering if this petition ranks up there with the need for Waffle House to ensure all employees earn minimum wage or Winter Olympics 2014 Sponsors: Condemn Russia's Anti-Gay laws or even Saudi Woman winning Clintons support for the right to drive...clearly to the change.org Batman fans it does.
