A photo that made the rounds on Twitter last night- your new Batman and Robin?

With the shocking news Thursday night that Ben Affleck will step into the cape as Batman in the upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel,” there was much reaction- some positive, some negative- from comic book and movie enthusiasts alike. Some pointed out that Affleck’s on a hot streak and has a lot more credibility as an actor than he used to, while always just made “Daredevil” jokes.

There was also another reaction, that many, many, many people on Twitter had:

As usual, Chris Kluwe wins the Internet. Then again, better Matt Damon as Robin than Chris O’Donnell. Also, as of Friday morning, the top two trending topics on Twitter are #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck and Daredevil.

The new movie is scheduled for release July 17, 2005, putting it on the same summer calendar as the “Avengers” sequel and, presumably, the next “Star Wars” film. Stay tuned on the site later today for more takes on the news.
