Stan Lee: Ben Affleck will 'do a good job as Batman'


Actor Ben Affleck has won the approval of comic book legend Stan Lee as he prepares to try on the Batman suit for the "Man Of Steel" sequel.

Bing: 'Blurred Lines' model joining Affleck in 'Gone Girl'?

Fans of the Caped Crusader have been far from kind following the Affleck casting, with some launching an online petition in a bid to force movie bosses at Marvel to find another Batman, but Lee insists the "Argo" star will do just fine.

He says, "He's a good actor and I wish him all the luck in the world. He'll probably do a good job as Batman."

Affleck recently opened up about the controversy surrounding his casting. He said, "I'm a big boy... They said just don't use the Internet for a couple of days... I handle [expletive]. I'm very tough."

Batman is from DC comics.  How does Stan Lee tie in to that?  You would think that someone would know that at MSN.   You guys do this kind of thing a lot you know.

Sabotage the competition, no one could ever accuse Stan Lee of being a dumb man.

Stan Lee said that Affleck would probably do a good job as Batman. That wasn't a great ringing endorsement. He didn't say that it was a fantastic choice and that Affleck would do a great job.
