Ben Affleck as Batman? That could work.

You go away on vacation for a week and the world turns upside down aka Ben Affleck being cast as Batman.

There's been a pretty severe backlash against Warner Bros. for the casting decision.

There's also been some angry comments towards Affleck for being cast in the part.

I have to admit: my initial reaction was, 'WTF?'

Now, I'm oddly OK with Ben Affleck joining the ranks as the The Caped Crusader.

First off, there's no denying that he looks the part.

Second, I enjoyed his work in several movies, including his original super hero flick: Daredevil...even though many did not.

Don't get me wrong -- I would have preferred seeing Christian Bale resume his role as Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
