Angry Batman Fans Launch Petitions Against Ben Affleck

    The fight against the great social injustice of our day.

    The internet is angry about Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in the upcoming Superman v Batman film.

    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.

    At the time of writing, the petition has 1,489 signatures.

    "If you saw him in an alley wearing a bat suit, you would laugh, not run in fear. Batman should be 6-2, 235 pounds, your classically handsome guy with an imposing, scary image."... Fans have circulated petitions demanding a different cast, and they booed Warner representatives who had the audacity to show up at a comics-fan convention with a photograph of Keaton.

    Given that Affleck is apparently not "built" enough, here's a quick reminder of what Christian Bale looked like shortly before playing Batman:

    Predictably, there are Facebook groups as well.

    Several Facebook groups.

    And naturally, they've made artwork to support their campaign.

    And there are other petitions too.

    No really, there's really quite a few of them.

    That one is... pretty optimistic.

    Well done, guys. Everyone is very impressed by the success of your petition.
