Joseph Gordon-Levitt Gives Ben Affleck His Batman Blessing!

The mask and cape could have very well gone to Joseph Gordon-Levitt but instead, the next Batman will be Ben Affleck!

We are STILL a bit surprised by last week's announcement!

There was so much speculation as to who would play the part of The Dark Night, but probably at the top of the list of leading men was JGL!

After all, The Dark Knight Rises closes on him being surrounded by bats in what we assumed was a HUGE hint as to who would be the next master of Wayne Manor!

Even if he didn't end up being cast as the caped crusader, Joseph is totally psyched to see Ben as Batman, despite all the Batffleck haters out there!

Joe stopped to talk to reporters at the VMAs this weekend and said about the upcoming Man of Steel sequel:

"Oh, but it's gonna be good. I think it's gonna be good."

Alright, that's one ticket sold! How many more do you think Mr. Affleck can bring in???

What do YOU think???

Is Ben Affleck the hero that Gotham deserves? Or should producers have named Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the next Dark Knight?

    You once again are making a big deal out of nothing. Ben will be playing Batman. It is only a movie role and really not that important in the long run. It is a win win situation. If he is horrible then great the media and social net works can tear him apart again. That is always fun. Or if he is good then we benefit by having a good batman. I always assumed that Joseph was playing Robin since he said his first name was Robin and if there were a sequel he would play Robin.

    Thankgod his ugly uncharismatic ass didnt get the job. Theres a reason he's only ever a co-star and never the lead…he has no star quality.

    How could he be Batman when he is already Robin?

    Michael Keaton will always be 'the' Batman. At least Ben Affleck will be better than George Clooney.

    I always thought JGL was Robin too from the last movie. I hate to see Christian Bales go. As far as i am concerned he was and will always be the best Dark Knight for me!

    Re: Lasqueesha – Um, no. Manic, Mysterious Skin, Brick, The Lookout, Hesher, 500 Days of Summer, 50/50, Premium Rush, Looper–Hello, he's the lead in all of these and steals the show even in movies where he's supporting (Inception and Dark Knight Rises). But I guess you never saw any of that. Oh well. Thank god he's the one in movies.
