AFFLECK-HARRY-POTTER
Here's the problem with rumors on the Internet: nobody actually reads the contents of the posts. You see a buzzy title, something that catches your attention, makes you angry, makes you laugh, and that's all you read. I'm not even blaming people for this, it's something I do myself. We're a society that shares content, without actually checking the content ourselves.

How many times have you had the following conversation?

You: Hey, did you hear about [INSERT NEWS STORY]?

Friend: I saw that too! What do you think about that?

You: I don't know, I really only saw the one sentence on Twitter.

Friend: Yeah, me too. Hey, want to order more chalupas?

You: Of course. Of course I want to order more chalupas. Read More...

Do you think since getting the role of Batman in the "Superman vs. Batman" actor/filmmaker Ben Affleck has been walking around the house, doing his best Caped Crusader voice? Wife Jennifer Garner ("Million Dollar Baby," "Alias") hints that she's been the first to hear a take on the character.

Faster than a speeding bullet, grimmer than "The Town," this fan trailer brings together "Superman/Batman" stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and the rumored Bryan Cranston to imagine what the 2015 sequel will look like.

With the Internet pretty much calmed down since last week's announcement that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in 'Man of Steel 2', and the rumor mill all but confirming Bryan Cranston as villain Lex Luthor, the obvious next question is: who will play Superman?

It's an obvious point, but so far, Warner Brothers has been relatively mum on the subject of the actor jumping into the old red and blue... Though we have a few ideas. First, given the uproar over Affleck, Warner Brothers will want someone not quite as divisive to the fan community; possibly even someone relatively unknown to them, who won't carry the baggage Affleck does to Batman. And they've already got the buzzy Cranston, coming off 'Breaking Bad' as the bad guy, so WB can go the Marvel, relatively unknown route for the Superman part.

Our suggestion? This guy: Read More...

Earlier this week, it was announced that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the new Man of Steel movie Batman vs. Superman due out July 2015. After the announcement was made the internet proceeded to explode with immediate criticism from the masses of Batman fans, many citing Affleck's rather disastrous role in Daredevil as evidence of his inability to play a superhero. Memes were born, death threats were made, and three of MTV Geek's resident geek girl bloggers sat down for a round-table discussion about the matter.

Cecelia: So I guess we start with, how’s everyone generally feeling about Batfleck?

The Internet's collective reaction to the announcement that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" followup was met with the kind of contemplative, wait-and-see attitude we've all come to know and love from around the web.

Of course, what I really mean is that people lost their collective junk, as though "Gigli" had just come out last year and the actor hadn't distinguished himself with excellent work in front of and behind the camera since he was on the front of the tabloids. But not every reaction in the meme-worthy "Batfleck" blowup was immediately depressing. Some were actually pretty funny and clever.

After the jump, check out a few choice picks.

Though Ben Affleck is now officially Batman, joining the storied ranks of actors such as Will Arnett, Seth Green, Sam Rockwell, and nobody else, this isn't the first time the actor's name has come up in relation to the Dark Knight. Nope, in fact, the first time was - no joke - 2000. Here's a brief timeline of Affleck's flirtation with Gotham:
