Five per cent of fans discussing the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman are encouraging petition sign ups to recast the role, research from Crimson Hexagon using its ForSight platform.

The research looked at 397,370 relevant Twitter posts, and found that only three per cent were happy with the casting choice, with 78 per cent of social media users discussing the film saying the Daredevil actor is a poor choice and they won't be watching.

With #BetterBatmanthanBenAffleck trending for most of the day, it is no surprise that 14 per cent of tweets suggested alternative actors to play the role, with Undisputed 2 star Scott Adkins proving to be a popular choice.
