I smell a conspiracy.
Let’s go back to the innocent years of 2008. Where people were much nicer and when Ben Affleck’s Batman didn’t exist. Wait What? Well, you see people seem to hate the direction Ben Affleck has taken the caped crusader too. Which I don’t really dislike but each to his own.
So when a writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a tweet with the 2008 trivial pursuit question. It seems innocent enough asking people “Who has never been Batman?”. That is until you read the options.

Why did the game had to go and give Movie executives the idea to hire Ben Affleck as Batman?
Twitter users are understandably very upset.
This obviously their fault. They gave some shmuck the idea and now Batman sucks.

People just couldn’t give him a break.
The correct answer is Ben Affleck as he should never have been cast as Batman after Daredevil bombed so badly.

Nobody has the answer to that.
Sure, predicts the future, blahblah, but the real question here is… Where is Michael Keaton?

Been not ‘played’.
it says "been" and not "played."
so the only answer is "everyone who is not Adam West"

I agree wholly.
It's acceptable to disavow Clooney over the bat nipples issue.
— Jerry Bianco (@JerryBianco) December 4, 2017
Very safe to say.
I think it's safe to say Clooney and Affleck were never batman…

Bruce Wayne? Never heard of him.
I'll tell you who isn't Batman – billionaire wastrel playboy Bruce Wayne. I read it in a Daily Planet editorial by that nice Ms Lane.

The world would be a much better place if it wasn’t.

It goes deep.
How deep does this anti-Affleck conspiracy go? Is it just board games, or has it infiltrated TV too? DEAR GOD WHAT ABOUT JEOPARDY?

Oh great. Now you've done gone and made Tobey Maguire the next Batman. Thanks.

There was also a similar question in an edition of Cranium.

So is this all a conspiracy? Or are we reading too much into a simple question?
