The podcast the internet deserves finally looks at the decision to cast “the bomb in Phantoms yo” as Batman in the next DC movie where the Man of Steel goes head-to-head against Ben Affleck. Now that the internet furor has died down, we offer a variety of views, as we hope to be surprised but prepare to be disappointed…
