Remove Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the Superman/Batman movie.

His acting skill is not even close to being believable as Bruce Wayne and he won't do the role justice. He's not intimidating enough for the role of Batman. Batman is someone that strikes fear in the hearts of men. His portrayal of Daredevil was atrocious and he's not remotely close to an action star or a superhero. Please find someone else and deliver to the fans what they want. 

Update: 8/23/2013 3:39PM EST

I would like to add that this petition was not meant in any way to harm Ben Affleck or his career. I respect Affleck's work, I just feel he is inappropriate for the role. 

I would also like to denounce any petitions on any other sites bearing this title. I am not/nor was I ever affiliated with them. It came to my attention that someone used my title on whitehouse.gov and I do not support that. The U.S. government has more pressing matters to deal with such as the chemical warfare being used in Syria, rather than who was cast as Batman. This is a neutral site which is why I chose it for fans to voice their opinions.

Thank you.

      I was going to send this off Friday, regardless of how many signatures were here, but I think we should push for the 100,000 mark. So I will leave it until then. Once we hit that mark I will send it, unless of course it is over the Labor Day weekend here in the States. So keep pushing, get all the signatures you can and let's hit that 100,000 mark. We can do it.

      Thanks for the added publicity.

    3. Failed successes and assumptions....

      Oh, Katie... As much as I love that you are frivolously using change.org to stop my "frivolous" petition and that you apparently are stalking this page, it seems that your success has nothing to do with you. Your request for the shirt ad to be removed had nothing to do with you contacting change.org. I have received nothing from them. In fact, I am currently looking into more profitable outlets to have the shirt printed. I had never decided as to what I was going to do with the profits from the shirt, but I wasn't going to keep them. I was actually seeing how well the shirt would sell before I made an announcement, but most likely the profit would have gone to Alzheimer's researc, Cystic Fibrosis research, or both as I have family members who suffer from both. You really shouldn't make assumptions. I mean, you know what they say about people who assume, right? Oh, and thanks for the awesome shirt idea. I'm getting a "Stop John Roden" shirt made for myself. My friend's love it too.

      Obviamente viendo su trayectoria profesional le queda grande el papel por falta de carisma

      Great movie idea headed for ruin. Ben seems like a good guy but has lead to sheltered a life to play this part.

      Ben Affleck does not fit the role of Batman. No actor thus far have played 2 different superheroes. Actors have always been associated With the 1 superhero that they have portrayed. He will always be Daredevil not Batman.
