Internet has Fun with Affleck’s Batman Photo

People seem to be having lots of fun with the recently released photo of Ben Affleck as Batman. Lots of creativy in these images below.

Some people have colored the costume to match some crazy costumes that Batman has worn in the past. Pink Batman? Rainbow Batman? Sure, I’m game.

These Sad Batman memes are great, too. He does look really sad, poor guy. I bet he’s thinking about Robin.
