Thing is, we really like Ben Affleck and his body of work (at least most of it). The Town and Gone Baby Gone are wicked smaht Boston crime flicks, and Argo, which he directed and starred in, is an Academy Award Best Picture winner. We also loved Good Will Hunting. And Chasing Amy. Even Pearl Harbor—well, to a certain extent.

But he must not—absolutely not—play Batman.

Several entertainment news sites have confirmed that Ben is set to replace Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader in the upcoming untitled Superman-Batman project for Warner Bros., which will serve as a sequel to this year's Man of Steel. "We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on DC Comics's most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some," says WB president Greg Silverman in a statement. Sir, good luck explaining that to fanboys.

We know the world will eventually grow fond of seeing Ben in a bat suit, but right now, we're just not feeling it. And as a way to protest this unforeseen casting choice, we came up with a list of people who'd make a better Batman than this guy.

We're sorry and we love you, Ben, but this is how much we think you're not The Dark Knight:

Batman
Batman
Batman
Batman
Batman
NEXT: The original Batman would make a better Batman
