A gajillion people have asked me today what I think about Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in the next Snyderman movie.

Here’s the answer: I couldn’t care less.

Man of Steel was such a monumental, offensive, insufferable, illogical pile of steaming dogshit, it doesn’t make the slightest bit of difference who plays Batman. Get Ryan Reynolds for all I care. Get Burt Reynolds. It doesn’t matter; the movie is doomed. The new Warner Superman franchise is a heartless, tone-deaf, cynical money-grab. The sequel will be more of the same.

I never posted a review of Man of Steel because, frankly, a lot of other people did it better. These two reviews (read the entirety of each; it’s worth it) sum up my feelings nicely.
