Two of Hollywood’s biggest nerds have weighed in on the Batman/Ben Affleck controversy:
Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin — just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe — I'm in.

Yes, that’s a heck of an endorsement from Joss Whedon. The man does know his superheroes so it should count for something that he thinks Affleck will do well as The Caped Crusader. I know, this won’t convince a single one of you who absolutely hates this casting news, but perhaps it will ease your pain just a little. And if you don’t trust Joss Whedon, there’s always this ringing endorsement from Kevin Smith.
Holy shit… BEN AFFLECK IS THE NEW BATMAN!!! http://t.co/acivqxFl0U Do you know what this means? It means that I've seen Batman naked!!!
