The Cricket's Daily 3: Affleck gets to say 'I'm Batman'
Here's what's happening in pop culture:
• Ben Affleck will play Batman opposite Superman in the sequel to "Man of Steel." And any joke you want to make about that has already been made on Twitter. [Los Angeles Times, via The Salt Lake Tribune]
• The French comedy "Amelie" will become a Broadway musical â no doubt a waiflike and charming one, too. [Paste]
• ESPN has pulled out of collaborating with PBS on a "Frontline" documentary about concussions in the NFL. ESPN has a multi-billion contract to broadcast NFL's "Monday Night Football," and likely didn't want to jeopardize all that money. [Washington Post]
