It didn’t take long after Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman for the social media world to lose its collective mind. With nothing better to do on a Thursday, the Internets wasted not a second in turning the meme machine to 11 and making it clear just how the world felt about the actor-writer-director playing the Dark Knight.

On Twitter, in a blink, hashtags related to Affleck-as-Batman news occupied five of the top 10 trending spots on Twitter in the U.S. But the #Batfleck on is probably the most likely to stick.
