A couple of weeks ago Ben Affleck got some major internet flack (which we imagine would be kind of sticky and leave visible stains) when it was announced that he would be the next Batman.
We’re no comic aficionados so we have no idea what the big uproar is – all we’re really concerned about is that a Michael Keaton never happens again. Yeah, we know, ‘blah blah, he’s a good actor, blah blah, brought Batman to life, blah – but … he’s wasn’t hot. And no crime is bigger than casting an ugly actor to the part of a superhero. For example, we love Steve Buscemi as much as the next guy, but I think we can all universally agree that we don’t want to see his big acting chops in pair of tights.
So Ben, never mind the haters, we’re cool with you – especially if you pack on some more muscle before the movie comes out.
Here’s just a few sexy actors who have played a swoony (is that word? it is now..) superhero
