Batman fans are complaining about the new casting of Ben Affleck for the next Man of Steel movie. In fact, they are so upset, they want to bring back our favorite, classic Batman … Michael Keaton. There’s also a lot of jokes going around about bringing on Matt Damon to be Ben Affleck’s Robin. Don’t worry. That’s not in the cards. In any event, here’s ten tweets from outraged fans who are rallying for Keaton.
Dear @MichaelKeaton: Do us a solid and come out of whatever semi-retirement state you're in. Sincerely, EVERY FREAKING PERSON IN THE WORLD

Since the news broke in March that Affleck was actually Michael Keaton's son, I'm okay with this.

Hey, did you guys know that in the 80s people got pissed because Michael Keaton was cast as Batman? Hmm sounds familiar doesn't it?

I still like Michael Keaton as Batman, I'm not into the weird voice changing stuff. Plus I miss the Batmobile.

Michael Keaton is rolling over in his career's grave right now.

Gotta admit, I'd much rather see Michael Keaton reprise his role as Batman. #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck
Michael Keaton is the best Batman and the first 2 Tim Burton films are the best adaptations + Prince did the soundtrack >>>>>>>>>

Ben Affleck as Batman could either be a disaster like George Clooney or a pleasant suprise like Michael Keaton was.

I think Michael Keaton would be a #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck. Oh wait…
