Ben Affleck Is The New Batman


Ben Affleck is the new Batman. According to Warner Brothers, Affleck will suit up as Batman opposite Henry Cavill as Superman.

Zack Snyder will return to direct the film, which is said to be “informed” by Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns comic book. The film will release on July 17, 2015.

Says Zack Snyder, “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. I can’t wait to work with him.”

Late last year WB courted Affleck to direct Justice League. Whether this will revive that possibility or not isn’t yet known.

  1. yeah horrible casting choice.. what were they thinking on that one? did they not watch daredevil? i mean i like ben, he is a great actor. but he is no superhero. this isn’t the type of movie he should be doing.

  2. haha I’m glad I’m not alone 🙂 It makes no sense to me either 🙂 I think Ben is a fantastic actor – he’s just not a superhero.
