    Not everyone is thrilled about Ben Affleck playing Batman in the Man of Steel sequel.

    On Friday's edition of Live From E!, Arlene Santana, Ken Baker and Melanie Bromley discussed the controversial casting that has loyal fans sounding off and sending mixed reactions.

    While some fanatics totally see the Argo director stepping into the signature costume, others aren't so sure about a Batman Benny.

    There is, however, still some time to find a Robin. Could Affleck's BFF Matt Damon be available for the role?

    Also on today's show, the panel couldn't believe how many fans woke up bright and early to see One Direction.

    This morning on the Today show, more than 18,000 fans watched the boy band sing their huge hits including "Best Song Ever" and "What Makes You Beautiful" live.

    When he wasn't singing for screaming girls, Zayn Malik was able to spill the beans on his recent engagement.

    "We're engaged," he said shyly. "We're really happy. And, yeah, that's it."

    Finally, the panel looked back at Chris Brown's epic Twitter rant earlier in the week.

    After being sentenced to 1,000 hours of community service, the singer expressed his ongoing frustration with the outcome of his last court hearing.

    "Ni--a done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist ass crying to the judge that I didn't do it. F--k the SYSTEM!" he tweeted Thursday evening. The 24-year-old must complete his hours before August 2014.
