And Now the Petitions about Batfleck Begin
The reaction of the internets to the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman has not been too kind. Shockingly it took about 5 hours though for the petitions to begin. Change.org currently has about a dozen petitions running with a total of about 5,500 signers between them all as of this post. As expect very few of the petitions created, and comments posted by those that sign, are coherent or even solid arguments.
This so far pails in comparison to the more than 50,000 hand written letters sent to Warner Bros. after it was announced Michael Keaton was cast as Batman in 1989.
Here’s the petitions currently up targeting various folks.
- Warner Bros to stop Ben Affleck from playing Batman. : Find someone better to follow up Christian Bale and that’s not from Gigli.
- Ben Affleck should not be cast as Batman in the new Man of Steel Movie: Stop Ben Affleck from Ruining the Batman/Superman movie in 2015
- DC Comics: Recast the new Batman instead of Ben Affleck
- The removal/boycott of Ben Affleck as Batman. : Find a much more suitable actor to play this icon.
- Zack Snyder: Cut Ben Affleck from the cast of the new Man of Steel film.
- Warner Bros. Studio: Not have Ben Affleck be the new Batman
- Ben Affleck : Not Play Batman in Upcomimg Batman/Superman Movie
- Ben Affleck aka Butt Chin Butthead: Stop him being casted as the Batman in any Batman Movie PERIOD
- PETITION -NO BEN AFFLECK FOR BATMAN!: CHANGE THE ACTOR…
- Warner Brothers: Remove Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the Superman/Batman movie.
- Warner Bros. and Zack Synder: Remove Ben Affleck from the role of Batman immediately.
Still no petition asking the Whitehouse to comment… yet.
