Last night on Twitter when the news broke that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for the inevitable Batman vs. Superman movie, Ben Affleck and the internet reenacted that scene from The Dark Knight Rises where Batman "dies" in a nuclear explosion over Gotham. Here were my favorite tweets from that "event"...

You guys, I'm really worried Affleck isn't up to acting challenge of the 2 or 3 scene where Batman isn't entirely CGI.— Michael Cusumano (@SeriousFilm) August 23, 2013
I swear I can hear Matt Damon giggling wherever he is.— Josh Horowitz (@joshuahorowitz) August 23, 2013
The person most disappointed by the Ben Affleck news is Matt Damon, as he is now legally required to play Robin.— James Martin (@Pundamentalism) August 23, 2013

Batman fuck yourself?!?— Andreas (@astoehr) August 23, 2013
In the Ben Affleck version, Batman's parents kill themselves.— Chase Mitchell (@ChaseMit) August 23, 2013
On a more serious note, I don't get why they need a Star when Batman is the draw. Superman movies understand this and this is a Superman movie (sort of... being the Man of Steel sequel that's become a Batman vs. Superman thing in the latest example of Hollywood's fandering.) It's just setting fire to your production budget is all. It buys you one day of notoriety on the internet for heaps of millions but ticket sales will be there regardless.
And, finally, the perfect rude 'hair of the dog' cure this morning to get this out of your system once and for all...
