In Runner, Runner, when a poor college student who cracks an online poker game goes bust, he arranges a face-to-face with the man he thinks cheated him.

Yes … it's an offshore gambling thriller, fans!

While the premise is different and the star power is present - Justin Timberlake and a big, bad Ben Affleck - is the movie, opening this weekend, worth seeing?

Depends who you ask and what you're after.

Unlike the nearly universally positive Gravity reviews, Runner, Runner is more of a mixed bag with critics. Here's a glance at what some of them say ...

"How blandly by-the-numbers is Runner Runner? When it’s time for a hot sex scene with Timberlake’s ambitious Richie Furst and Rebecca (Gemma Arterton), his boss’s luscious second-in-command, the encounter is as charmless and chemistry-free as the wooden banter that has led up to it. I’ve had dentist’s appointments that were sexier. - Boston Globe

Ben Affleck thought he could handle it. He thought he'd be okay.

He was wrong.

The actor appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday and said he was warned about the backlash over his Batman casting, with the studio telling him "Just don’t use the Internet for a couple of days."

But "I handle sh-t!'” Affleck asserted, only to then realize just how negative that "sh-t" actually became, as he explains in this footage:

Of course, the criticism has now moved from Affleck as Batman to Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey.

Ever since the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman shocked the world last Thursday, fans have either been grumbling about it or meme-ing it to death.

Except YouTube user soylentbrak1, who has been hard at work envisioning what a Man of Steel sequel starring Ben Affleck as Batman would look like.

The result was this fan-made trailer, also starring Breaking Bad Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor and Henry Cavill again as Superman.

Check it out below and see if it changes your views on Ben as Bruce Wayne:

There isn't much plot in this Man of Steel 2 trailer, besides the mention of a mysterious corporate merger and some tension between Superman and Batman.

Given that it's not a real trailer, however, it's pretty top notch.

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

A petition on Change.org 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?

Not everyone is enthralled by the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman.

The Oscar winner has officially been cast as the Caped Crusdar in the wildly anticipated Man of Steel sequel.

He will star opposite Henry Cavill as Superman and, well, let's just say that a couple blots on Affleck's resume have some Twitters users concerned. Some famous Twitter users, no less, who took to the social network to react to the news...

... and made us laugh pretty hard in the process.

It's unexpected, but it's true: Ben Affleck is the new Batman.

With the movie world still reeling from this announcement, and with Affleck set to costar alongside Henry Cavill in 2015's Man of Steel sequel, Zack Snyder has issued a statement that confirms the news.

It reads:

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”

So much for going after a smaller name.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Ben Affleck has been tapped as the next actor to crusade while donning a certain iconic cape: yes, the Oscar winner will star as Batman opposite Henry Cavill in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

The project was announced at Comic-Con, with speculation running wild over who will take over for Christian Bale. Names such as Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin had been rumored for week

But it looks like Affleck - who will also play the lead in Gone Girl and who was panned for his performance as a superhero in Daredevil - has swooped in and taken the role in a blockbuster that will open in July 2015.

What do you think the actor as Batman?
