Ben Affleck as Batman: Internet's 10 Best Memes
Matt Damon is photoshopped as Robin, Christian Bale cracks up, and the Aflac duck freaks out.
The age of the Batfleck is upon us.
The #Batfleck hashtag was used by enterprising Twitter users to share memes featuring photoshopped images of Affleck in the batsuit and Matt Damon as his Robin, as well as Christian Bale cracking up over the casting.
But it wasn't all fun and games. One analytics firm estimated 71 percent of tweets about the casting within the first hour of the news breaking were negative. Change.org and White House petitions were started to remove Affleck from the project, though the White House petition was taken down by the Obama administration.
