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.
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 s**t. I'm very tough."
