The Internet was awash with commentary on the decision to cast Ben Affleck as Batman in the "Man of Steel" sequel. Several relevant hashtags trended on Twitter on Thursday night following the announcement, and come Friday morning #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck was at the top of the list. #Batfleck also made its way through the Twittersphere, with both hashtags producing a bevy of interesting responses. We've compiled a few of our favorites.

One user had to put his thoughts to bed after finding out. Some people know their own Batman who can step in. Most were dipping from the bottom of the superhero barrel to replace Affleck. Some people actually offered decent suggestions. Others had some rather odd thoughts. A small sect defended Affleck. One person was just plain confounded. But ultimately, Louis the Pug is right.
