Analysis of people’s perception on Warner Bros’ decision to cast Ben Affleck as Batman



Ben Affleck is under fire after he accepted to play batman in the upcoming movie man of steel which may release in the year 2015. Social media was full of passionate batman fans panning Warner Bros’ using blunt posts full of anger to innovative hashtags full of sarcasm such as #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck. The fans though are not to blame considering the legacy Christian Bale has left behind. In the words of a Ben Affleck fan on Facebook: ”Those are big shoes to fill in. Bale has owned batman since 2005 while Ben has only one superhero movie to show off and the sad part is Daredevil was the worst movie of his career”.

We know that the question in your mind is: “What are the sentiments of masses on Ben Affleck”?







Here are the key findings of the people’s perception based on the sentiment analysis performed using EaseSocial:

Post Analysis


• With 74% negative posts around the casting of Ben Affleck as batman, the verdict is as clear as the presence of terrorists in the streets of Pakistan. Only 9% posts were positive, some of which have been included in this report(scroll down to read). But a key point to note here is: Heath Ledger too was panned by everyone after Christopher Nolan chose him as Joker. But come the release of The Dark Knight and Ledger proved that he was the toughest villain batman ever faced.

What we have to say on this:


Whats with all this negativity guys? Give the guy a chance. Ben has already faced a lot of unjustified social media wrath. He’s a talented actor and may justify Warner Bros’ trust on him. And if he again pulls off a Daredevil why bother, it’s a superman movie. Enjoy the performance of superman.



How Sentiment analysis can be beneficial to brands:


• Engaging your audience on social media is a herculean task. Your target audience may or may not be interested in you postings, blogs and other uploads across social media. Trending topics are always helpful but which of those can actually help you to engage your target audiences is always a tough ask.

Hence, EaseSocial can be a powerful medium that simplifies marketing research.
