News that Ben Affleck would play Batman to Henry Cavill’s Superman in the “Man of Steel” sequel took Twitter by surprise Thursday night. The world has until 2015 to get used to the idea, but even that might be asking a bit much.

Cory Booker might have doomed his candidacy with his controversial pro-Ben stance.

Ben Affleck’s not that bad of a casting decision, is it? Well, it didn’t take long for a #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck hashtag to take off.
