Ben Affleck Is The New Batman

Ben Affleck is Batman.

The actor will replace Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming untitled Superman-Batman feature for Warner Bros., the studio announced Thursday.

“Man of Steel” actors Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane are reprising their roles with Zack Snyder on board to direct.

Affleck now becomes the latest to play the caped crusader which includes Adam West, George Clooney and Michael Keaton.

The film is slated to bow on July 17, 2015.

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a
seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne,” Snyder said in a statement. “I can’t wait to work with him.”

The announcement of a Batman-Superman film was announced last month Comic-con to much excitement and the next thing to look out for is if more of the Justice League team will be added to this cast.

The irony to this news is that at one point Warner Bros. was interested in having Affleck direct the “Justice League” movie and his participation in this film will now spur interest if whether his casting means a possibility of directing that film.

Affleck is repped by WME and can be seen next in Fox and New Regency’s thriller “Runner Runner.”

R.I.P. Batman

I thought Superman and Batman were of the same age.

Bale wasn't the best Batman either... Might as well give someone else a shot.

Pretty much this. Didn't they offer him $50 million to do it again and he refused.

Just like actors of the past who turned down James Bond roles. Brosnan didn't want his acting career to be associated with the character. They want to be the character but they don't want to be known as the character.
