28 August 2013 / 3 years 1 month ago

An extremely well-made trailer by a diehard fan is making waves online. Could Ben Affleck have a hope of playing a decent batman?

The recent news that Affleck would portray the wildly-popular DC superhero had many fans in despair, with more than 20,000 fans signing a petition online to have him recast for the movie.

Affleck, who is more known for playing love interests in romantic comedies than hard-bitten vigilantes, also made fans cringe when he played blind superhero DareDevil in 2003.

This fan-made trailer however, has been changing minds online. Created by YouTube user SolyentBrak1, it has already convinced many that perhaps Ben Affleck might have the gravitas needed to portray the Dark Knight without looking silly.

Do you think Bat-Affleck will soar to new heights, or bomb miserably? Let us know in the comments below.
