...now get over it.
In case you missed it (or don't really care), it was announced Thursday that Ben Affleck will portray Batman/Bruce Wayne in the "Man of Steel" sequel. This gives an open door to a "Justice League of America" movie that will take on Marvel's "Avengers" franchise.
If you're counting, Affleck would make the fifth guy (Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney, and Bale) who've played the Dark Knight in big, loud, Batman movies.
A special note about the Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan reboots. These movies all-but saved the big screen Gotham franchise after Joel Schumacher dang near killed it in the trainwreck that was "Batman Forever." A movie, by the way, that was so bad George Clooney's acutally given people back their money out of his own pocket.
Anyheck...where were we? Remember what happened when it was announced that Heath Ledger would play The Joker in Nolan's "Dark Knight Returns"? Or, what about the sturm und drang that came in 1989 when Tim Burton said Michael Keaton would play his Batman?
As a Wall Street Journal blogger put it: deal with it.
