Ben Affleck Is Not Batman

No. No. No. Ben Affleck is not Batman. Not even close.

And no I absolutely refuse to drink the Kool-Aid that just because he made Argo we can now forgive him for decades of crap and swill. Argo doesn't even come close to erasing his pretty IMDB waterfall of tripe. How does that even make sense?

And no just because he was 29 when he made Daredevil and now he's 40 can we expect anything better. Growing up is not the same as as having taste. If you're talentless at 29 you're not gonna be talented at 40. Expect 2 hours of gritted teeth.

And no he doesn't have a good white man chin.

And yes this is exactly like George Clooney casting. We have every reason to expect nipples. “Everybody Chill!”

And yes this is exactly what WB wants: animated discussion over a lukewarm project. Less marketing and more script writing please.

And yes despite my/our protests it'll make a buttload of money. None of which will come from my wallet.

Unlike John Travolta I'm out.
