Batman Internet Commenters Made Ben Affleck Sad

When Ben Affleck was announced as the next Batman, people were all like, "Huh?" Well, Batfleck himself was on Late Night talking about how he thought he was prepared for the backlash, when in actuality he wasn't. See what you did, Internet commenters? You made Batman sad. This is why we can't have nice things. But seriously, it's all very charming — dare we say, Bruce Wayne–level charming. Watch the video below. The Batman stuff starts at 1:46, but you might as well watch it all, if only to hear how Affleck's kid burned him and a wax statue of him super hard.
