  • Pete Holmes: Definitely a better Batman than Ben Affleck

    So, have you heard that Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in the Superman/Batman crossover movie coming in 2015? Of course you have. As soon as it was announced, the internet blew up and the Twitterverse spontaneously combusted. In fact, hours later, #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck is still a trending topic on Twitter. And while the Daredevil/Gigli star will be in the film regardless, we’d like to humbly suggest someone that filled out the cape and cowl a little better: Pete Holmes. The comedian was the star of Badman, a recurring College Humor series. Sure, maybe Holmes is a little more off the cuff, and, well, hysterical than Affleck/Christian Bale/George Clooney/Val Kilmer/Michael Keaton, but that shouldn’t stop you from watching the entire series. Above, we find out how Batman, er Badman, got his voice. We also like the one in which he faces off with Patton Oswalt as the Penguin.
