In case you think he’s unaware, Ben Affleck knows just how much fans hated Daredevil and, according to a recent interview in Playboy, he regrets doing the movie, too.
The only movie I actually regret is Daredevil. It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got fucked up the way it did stays with me. Maybe that’s part of the motivation to do Batman.
He also completely understands why everyone freaked out when they heard he landed the role, but is also confident that he’ll do it justice.
I understand I’m at a disadvantage with the internet. If I thought the result would be another Daredevil, I’d be out there picketing myself. [laughs] Why would I make the movie if I didn’t think it was going to be good and that I can be good in it?
This could be a sort of redemption for Affleck, although he doesn’t see it in any way replacing or besting what we saw on screen from Christian Bale. He goes on to say that he’s seen what Zack Snyder has in store and that it offers a unique storyline with an older Batman who simply isn’t the same one we saw played by Bale.
The Man of Steel sequel doesn’t open until July 17, 2015 so we all have plenty of time to worry, and hopefully Affleck has plenty of time to perfect the part.
You can now own this “one of a kind” custom made Batman Tumbler Golf Cart. Judging by the item description, it looks like it was built for the franchise and likely used on the Warner Bros. lot. I’m guessing by the film’s execs.
Either way, it’s custom built, road worthy, and made to mirror the Tumbler in almost every detail.
There are 4 days left on the auction and all you need is $17,500 to Buy It Now and have it for your very own. That’s chump change to most Billionaire Playboy superheroes.

People may not think of The Doctor as a Superhero, but when he stops by the Super Cafe and chats with Batman and Superman, he’s happy to lay out his credentials for inclusion to the club.

No one knows the official title for the Batman vs. Superman movie yet, but some recently registered domain names might give us a hint. According to Fusible, Warner Bros. registered a bunch of possibilities that are all rather dark.
According to the latest domain registrations, possible titles include “Man of Steel Battle the Knight”, “Man of Steel Beyond Darkness”, “Man of Steel Black of Knight”, “Man of Steel Darkness Falls”, “Man of Steel Knight Falls”, “Man of Steel Shadow of the Night”, “Man of Steel The Blackest Hour”, and “Man of Steel The Darknness Within”.
These names aren’t likely to sit well with those of us hoping for the name to remain simply Batman vs Superman or World’s Finest. On the plus side, there is no official confirmation that any of these domain names are in the running for the movie title itself.
Ever wondered what Batman, his allies and even all his enemies do during Thanksgiving? They call a temporary truce and eat turkey, of course!
The artwork was created by Jason Fabok, the artist behind the current run of Batman Eternal. It was based on a real painting called The First Thanksgiving, which was made by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris during early 1900s. You can check that out after the break…
Regardless of what kind of day you had last Friday, your heart was probably lifted by the story of Batkid. Make-A-Wish turned San Francisco into Gotham City for the day for Miles Scott, and the internet responded with cheers and support. Everyone from President Obama to actors who have portrayed the superhero stopped to recognize Batkid.
Ben Affleck tweeted about Batkid being the best Batman:

Well, at least that’s out of the way. But that’s not all…
No cities are destroyed and no aliens try to take over the planet in this showdown between Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy and Superman voice actor Tim Daly. It was for a skit on The Daly Show which is an effort by Tim’s son Sam who also appears in the video. If the Affleck/Cavill fight is even half as good, they’ll be lucky.

Five year old Miles has leukemia and has been battling it for half of his young life (thankfully, he is currently in remission), so when he said he wanted to be BatKid, Make-A-Wish sprang into action.
And, man, did they deliver. So we wanted to share the day from start to finish. Check that out after the break…
This is an actual working version of the Batmobile as seen in 1989′s Batman Returns. It was built by a fan in the UK on a custom chassis with a straight six, fuel injected Jaguar 3.2 liter engine with automatic transmission. There’s also a working flame-thrower and hydraulics that can raise it up 9″ higher. They say it’ll do 0-60 in under 5 seconds, but if you want to try it yourself it’ll cost you. This Batmobile is expected to fetch around $90K at auction on November 30th.
