'Sad Ben Affleck' is the meme we all need right now

Hello darkness my old friend…

THE FIRST OF this year’s big blockbusters, Batman v Superman, is out today, with Ben Affleck making his first turn as Bruce Wayne alongside Henry Cavill as Clark Kent.

We love bringing people together. #BenAffleck #HenryCavill #BatmanvSuperman

So far, the reviews for the film have been…mixed, to say the least.

A reporter from Yahoo Movies brought them up in a recent interview with the two actors, asking them how headlines like these made them feel:

Ben appeared to zone out as Henry earnestly explained that the fan response to the film is more important than the reviews.

Some genius took the video and set it to a particular song, and well… The #SadAffleck meme was born.

(It works with Mad World too, BTW.)

“I agree.” Two sadder words have never been spoken.

People are responding by posting more pictures of Affleck looking utterly morose:

Oh, Ben. #SadnessInHisEyes
