Damn it, I took a vacation from Tumblr and comics and the world exploded.
Well, not really but still! First, Ben Affleck was cast as Batman and apparently this is the absolutely worst thing that ever happened in the history of the world according to some fanboys (girls).
Or just the worst casting for comic book movies since Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker.
I like Affleck and not just because he’s from Boston. He’s dark and handsome and he’s actually a good actor. I’m sure will be fine as an older Batman. There have been four different dudes who have played Batman one of whom was George Clooney wearing plastic nips. How can it be worse?
Besides, I’m saving my rage for the casting of Wonder Woman which, of course, means I’ll be saving THAT for a long time.
Now on to the other explosion. FanExpo, a Canadian Con, was held this week and DC announced that the Justice League of America will now be the Justice League of Canada. Watch out Rob Ford.
But that wasn’t the really interesting thing - it was about, well, this.
