Petitoners to Warner Bros.: Drop Ben Affleck as Batman!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Once again, Internet, like your issue with a censored kangaroo photo, please chill out.

A petition on is calling on Warner Bros. to reverse its decision and remove Ben Affleck as Batman, citing such problems with the actor as his Boston accent, his puny physique and his lack of intimation.

In part, the message reads:

Ben Affleck in a Hat

His acting skill is not even close to being believable as Bruce Wayne and he won't do the role justice. He's not built, nor is he intimidating enough for the role of Batman. His portrayal of Daredevil was atrocious and he's not remotely close to an action star. Please find someone else.

The petition already have 10,000 signatures, while The White House's petition system has also fielded a request... to make it ILLEGAL for Affleck to don the famous cape and cod piece.

For real.

What do YOU think? Is this an overreaction? Sound off now: Is Ben Affleck a good choice as Batman?
