Ben Affleck may be the next Batman, but there appears to be a decent sized portion of the internet that wasn't initially enthused about the news. In the over 96,000 tweets sent in the first hour after the casting announcement was made, 71 percent of that conversation was negative, according to social-media analytics firm Fizziology. Only 15 percent of the quick takes were positive and 14 percent were deemed to be of mixed sentiment.
