Yesterday, it was announced that Ben Affleck (Jersey Girl, Gigli) will be playing the role of Batman in the sequel to this year’s Superman movie, Man of Steel.

In an interview, director Zack Snyder described Affleck’s potential as the caped crusader using phrases like, “acting chops” and, “layered portrayal”, and then followed by saying “I can’t wait to work with him.”

The following list outlines why Snyder is a delusional boob, and why Ben Affleck should probably sit this one out.
