Ben Affleck is the new Batman! – Batman vs Superman – Man of Steel 2

Warner Bros has officially announced that Actor Ben Affleck is taking over the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman in the upcoming superhero movie that’s set to pit Superman against Batman! Director Zack Snyder is in charge of the project which is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder. The film is a sequel to Man of Steel. There’s no official title yet, possibly “Batman vs Superman”.

Ben Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who is reprising his role as Clark Kent aka Superman.

A few words from Director Zack Snyder about Ben Affleck:

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry Cavill’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.”

Director Zack Snyder

Since they’re going for a “mature” actor, the film will likely be inspired by Part 2 of “The Dark Knight Returns”, watch the trailer below:

    No! I’m not happy that batman is an old man… I don’t want an old bad man in the movie!

    I like Ben, but clearly not as Bruce Wayne, we all saw what happened in Dare Devil. As big of actor and great director he is, clearly there is no way he can be Batman.
