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 – no doubt a waiflike and charming one, too. [Paste]
