Who knew that two little words (Ben Affleck) paired with one other B-word (Batman) would have such a polarizing effect? Warner Bros. had already revealed that the Caped Crusader would be joining Superman in director Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man of Steel, so all that was left was to find the actor who could pull off both a tux and a cowl. The studio must have thought it was a no-brainer casting Affleck, who couldn't be hotter thanks to Argo and all the good will he drummed up by not being nominated for a Best Director Oscar.
