John Krasinski should be the new Batman

John Krasinski, the actor who played Jim Halpert in the U.S. version of The Office should play Batman. That’s if Warner Bros. decides the world needs another Batman movie. With Ben Affleck entering rehab once again for alcohol, the DC cinematic universe looks to have a hole to fill. Even if he finishes rehab with a coin or a celebratory sash indicating a successful completion, the studio will never know when Affleck will relapse. He’s done it before. Why he just can’t limit himself to a couple of wine coolers like a normal man is a question in need of an answer. The only person who can answer that question is Ben Affleck.

Any man who drinks anything other than wine coolers probably has an alcohol problem.

Affleck can only blame Matt Daman or Jennifer Lopez a limited number of times before those excuses wear thin with the public. He needs to concentrate on himself. The great Boogie2988 often talks about something called self-care. I don’t really know what that is, but in fairness, I don’t think Boogie2988 knows ether. Whatever self-care is, I think Affleck is in need of it.

After Aflack bows out of playing Batman, Krasinski can then swoop down and take over the role. Have you seen Krasinski lately? The man is jacked.

John Krasinski was born to play Batman

If you’ve ever watched Jim Halpert interact with Dwight Schrute on The Office, you’d know Krasinski has the acting chops to deal with any villain thrown his way. Personally, I’d like to see the next Batman villain be the Riddler played by Rainn Wilson.

That would be comic book cinematic gold.

Not only would I watch that movie the weekend it came out, I would buy the Batman – Riddler action figure boxed set. I wouldn’t even wait for it to go on clearance. I’d pay full MSRP like I was a boss.  I would, of course, keep the figures in the box to ensure they don’t lose their collectible value.

Curious to know what John Krasinski looks like as Batman?

I have in my possession an artist’s rendition of John Krasinski as Batman. It was done by an artist in Bangladesh I hired on Fiverr. I paid him $7.50 to accelerate the job. I’d post it here, but I cannot in good conscience do so. If it were seen by someone with a weak constitution or a man who consumes a lot of soy-based products, they would very likely collapse into a quivering hot mess, soiling themselves out of fear. Any woman who glanced at it without preparing themselves first would undoubtedly go into immediate menopause, no matter her age.

Nobody wants any of that.

One thought on “John Krasinski should be the new Batman”

  1. Great writeup. I think John Krasinksi is so talented. Watching him in the office is my favorite past time and I must have seen the whole series 4 or 5 times now. Just when I thought the Office was all he could do, Jack Ryan comes out and blows us away too. I think he would slay it as Batman, totally better than Ben Affleck!
