“It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.”
I know I am late to the game here but I have to say, I am psyched that Ben Affleck is going to play batman. I know, I am definitely in the minority here but let me explain why.
Everyone loves to hate on Ben. And I just think it is unfair. Sure, he’s made some bad decisions in his life, like this and this. But who hasn’t make mistakes. I mean, two other guys were tricked into marrying J Lo too (and it looks like another guy is about to take the plunge soon). So although it is easy to make fun of Ben, we shouldn’t forget the great things he has to offer.
He has one of the best bromances in all of Hollywood with Matt Damon. Their friendship goes all the way back to Boston Little League and we should never forget this:
And who knows, maybe Matt will join as Robin.
And even though he did date J Lo, it gave us Bennifer, which was definitely one of the first celeb couple nicknames. Which basically means, that his one back decision resulted in a bunch of good ones, like: Brangelina and Kimye. So thank you Ben Affleck for ruining your reputation to give us years of name-blending fun.
And for some reason, people love to criticize Ben for dating J Lo. but everyone seems to forget this relationship… not too shabby Ben.
I mean, she’s been with Ironman and now Batman? That just seems right.
And who doesn’t love Jennifer Garner?
Oh, you? Well you have no soul. She is as American and wholesome as apple pie.
And let’s look back at the top movies Ben has done: Good WIll Hunting and The Town. What do they both have in common? A Boston accent. And let’s be serious, a Bostonian Batman? That would be wicked pissa.
So I am going to go out there on a limb and say that I am a fan of this decision. Just don’t remind me of this post if this happens again.
