A lot of people don't seem very happy that Ben Affleck will be the next Batman.

But we happen to think it's some inspired, well thought-out casting!

Here are seven reasons we think Ben will make a darn good Dark Knight:

1. The Body

Just look at those abs! The man works out, which helps when people are supposed to believe you are jumping from rooftop to rooftop and punching bad guys.

2. The Brain

Ben is an Oscar-winning screenwriter, not to mention an acclaimed director. He is wicked smart, just like Batman, the World's Greatest Detective.

3. The Tux

Ben looks fantastic in a tuxedo, a must for the man who has to spend half the movie as billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne.

4. George Clooney

Ben's Argo producing partner played the Dark Knight in what is generally considered to be the worst movie ever Batman & Robin, and can probably tell Ben what pitfalls to avoid.

5. Practice Makes Perfect

Ben has already played a superhero once, giving him the chance to train in martial arts, wire work, and dual personas. People may not have fond memories of Daredevil, but we learn the most from our mistakes, right?

6. Kevin Smith

Ben has known Kevin for years. The comedy director, who has a podcast devoted to the Batman and even wrote an arc of the comic book, could be Ben's secret weapon.

7. BECAUSE The Internet Seems To Hate It

People always root for Batman, but remember this is Superman VS Batman! If people go in rooting for Superman, it will give Ben a chance to win everyone over.

Sleepy Kevin Smith Goes On A Dog Walk!!

Looks like someone's a sleepy head!

Kevin Smith was spotted in Los Angeles, California walking his very cute puppy on a scenic route.

And although the dog seemed as happy as can be - Kevin Smith looked as if he wished he was still in bed!

The film director tried his best to rub the sleep out of his eyes while his tiny pup dragged him along!

On a more random note, we're not sure where Kevin got that pink leash, but we love it!!!

We never thought this guy would have such great taste in dog accessories!

Walk hard, you two!!

Kevin Smith Making Walrus Based Horror Movie

| Filed under: Film FlickersKevin SmithScary!Walrus

Kevin Smith

No, this isn't going to be Walrusnado or anything like that.

Though that does give us an idea… LOLz!

Kevin Smith is making a movie called Tusk, based off an online ad from a UK homeowner looking for a roommate.

They're offering free rent to anyone who will dress up like a walrus for two hours a day.

Kevin Smith Started Writing Clerks 3 At 4:20 Friday Morning!

| Filed under: Film FlickersKevin Smith

kevin smith clerks 3 movie script

Clerks is undeniably one of the funniest movies of all time! It spawned a sequel, a cartoon series, and multiple comic books and launched the career of creator Kevin Smith!

And though Clerks 2 didn't make the same splash at the box office, it at least gave us a sense of closure for that crazy cast of characters.

Well now Kevin is throwing all that away to write another one! LOLz!

But srsly, along with the screen shot of the title page, the filmmaker also shared a sentimental message for fans on his Facebook page. He wrote:

"THE BEGINNING OF THE END

20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.

20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.

It's been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion…

CLERKS III will be the best film I'll ever make."

Wow! That's a bold statement!

Hmm. We wonder what got the notorious stoner up at precisely 4:20…

Kevin Smith Says He Will Always 'Owe' Tiger Woods

| Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolfBodyKevin Smith

Kevin Smith Tiger Woods

At least one person benefited from Tiger Woods' infidelity scandal.

Kevin Smith, who was booted off a Southwest plane last year for being "too fat" around the same time Tiger's scandal broke, says he will "always owe" the golfer for deflecting the controversy.

The American public could have been worrying about Kevin Smith's weight, but instead was immediately drawn to the sensational media coverage of Tiger's many mistresses.

Recently, Kevin looked back on the Southwest incident and shared how grateful he remains for Tiger Woods, saying:

"It was really bad [and] disconcerting. And that fake plastic heart in their logo, I thought was just absolute bull– and I lost all faith in humanity. I sat there for three days going, 'Life will never be the same, I'm humiliated, there's nowhere to go, nothing to do. I can't retain my cool, my credibility's shot. How am I supposed to be that Kevin Smith if I'm that dude who just got booted off the plane for being fat? Three days later Tiger Woods came out and was like, 'I cheated on my wife,' and nobody cared I was fat anymore. I love Tiger Woods! I don't care about golf, but I'll always owe him."

LOL! We're happy Tiger's troubles weren't in vain!

We're also happy that the plane incident may have served as a wake-up call for the movie director because he went on to lose 65 pounds! We hope he's able to keep it off too!
