Well THIS isn't going to help change any Bat-ffleck haters' minds!

While Ben Affleck may have won his role as the Caped Crusader fair and square, it sounds like his age might come into play when production gets underway on Superman vs Batman (rumored title), directed by Man of Steel's Zack Snyder.

At a Beverly Hills conference this week, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara addressed the critical outpouring following the decision to deem Ben as the next Dark Knight. Kevin described the 41-year-old actor as perfect for the part but also teased at what we can expect to see when Ben takes over this classic character!

Tsujihara said:

"Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character. The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character. [He'll be] tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while."

Tired and weary??? How old do you think Ben Affleck is?!

We are still not really feeling Ben being the Bat, but what's done is done!

C'mon though, Kevin! If you're trying to hype up what is sure to be a HUGE hit movie, you need to go back to your marketing team for a better slogan!

Because a tired and weary Batman is the last thing audiences want to see!

Here's hoping we aren't introduced to the Bat Rascal Scooter in Summer 2015!

LOLz!

    the movie is based on the batman character who is older. tired and weary because hes been doing it for a while before superman became superman. thats what that person meant perez. not because it is ben affleck. and that is why he fits the role becuse of zacs vision on how Batman is going to be in this movie

    +++++++++ I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, ++++ JOBS70.COM ++++++

    God, no one on here reads the comics. He is supposed to be worn out from saving everyone all the time for so long. He is supposed to be a little older and not as quick.

    That still doesn't mean Ben Assfleck should have been cast.

    I hope Ben shows all the haters what he is about in this role, GO BEN!

    Is Warner Bros trying to convince us this is a good idea…or themselves?

    I haven't even read the comics and I know that this version of Batman is supposed to be a little older and worn out. There's been a shit ton of Batman movies, and they even showed him in the last dark knight movie stepping away from crime fighting so people should not be surprised. They can't just keep redoing the same shit over and over again. He's human, not immortal. He's gonna get old…

    Sigh, yet another sequel or remake I will not be spending my money on.
