I found this article quite interesting and am sharing it here for you to muse over. I take no credit for the content of this article.
You may not have liked them apples when Oscar-winning director and Good Will hunter Ben Affleck was announced as the Batman, but those of you who tuned into Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night were treated to a candid conversation about taking on the iconic role and, more importantly, looking at the Internet’s response. Let this clip serve as a warning to all other actors, especially those who wind up getting cast as The Flash or in the new Star Wars: it might be best to avoid Twitter for a few days after the casting news breaks. Meanwhile, the rest of us will try to maintain a constant level of cautious optimism until summer 2015 when we can render our judgement, Joaquin Phoenix in Gladiator-style, in person. (The Batman talk starts at 1:43)
