My Reaction To Learning Ben Affleck Is The New Batman*, In GIFs

So. Thursday night, Aug. 22, I was made aware that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for the upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel.” I don’t like Ben Affleck. I can’t give you specific reasons for this, but I think it has something to do with his relationship with Matt Damon, who I really don’t like. You know they’re cousins?! (Tenth cousins, OK, but still. Cousins.) So, for your entertainment, here’s a GIF guide to my reaction to the news.

*We are apparently calling this phenomenon “Batfleck,” because the Internet.

 

 “Ha! Ben Affleck? This has to be from The Onion. Hilarious!
