Ben Affleck Cast As A New Batman

idek where this is from but lol (1)

 

In UGH News of the NightBen Affleck is our new Batman y’all. Well, other people’s Batman, because I just can’t get behind this. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Thursday that Affleck was chosen to star alongside Henry Cavill in the Superman and Batman mash-up movie, which will be out on July 17, 2015. The sequel to ‘Man of Steel’ will also be directed by Zach Snyder, so expect more destruction and gritty angst.

Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” said Snyder in a statement. “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.”

I don’t even know where to begin….charm? Acting chops? Ben is an all right director — I can give him that, but does no one at Warner Bros. remember ‘Daredevil’ because I do, and I wish I didn’t.

Snark aside, I had no interest in this, as I had no interest in ‘Man of Steel,’ but you guys could have given me something to be excited about. Christian Bale‘s “batvoice” was ridiculous, but can you imagine Affleck’s caped crusader trying to take down bad guys with that Bah-sten accent of his? “Pahk ya car in Arkham Asylum!” 

I stole that joke, but you get it.

‘Rock of Ages’ Official Trailer – Someone get me a barf bag? Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Julianne Hough

 

Here’s what I’d like to do: watch this “film” (and I use that term loosely) with the members of Poison, Joan Jett, Journey–(WITH Steve Perry) and Mötley Crüe, (even though their music isn’t featured in the movie–it would just be hilarious to hear Nikki Sixx’s, et al, snide remarks, à la Crow, Tom Servo and Joel from Mystery Science Theater 3000 ).

Okay. Y’all’ve been warned:

 

I’m gonna be givin’ y’all straightupness truth here:  I’m terrified of Tom Cruise. I don’t even need to explain why…everyone and I mean everyone knows what a GD phony, scary-ass, control-freeeeeak, mind-controlling zealot-y loon this dude is.  (See this Blind Item for more “proof”.)

Alec Baldwin did make me chuckle once during this trailer, but for Chrissake?  Julianne Hough walking down Hollywood Blvd. all innocent-like with a suitcase just the way Christina Aguilera did in Feather Boa “Burlesque”?  This entire thing looks like one hot steaming mess on the red carpet.  (Did I mention I NEVER want to see Tommy Girl shirtless ever again? I’ve got the “warm drools” and it’s on-deck…HEAVE!)

I can smell the rancid stink and this crap hasn’t even been released yet.
