Ben Affleck has had quite the healthy relationship with Warner Bros over the past years. They helped him release both The Town and Argo and now they want him to play Batman in their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, which is currently titled Batman vs. Superman.
According to sources, Affleck will play Batman opposite of Henry Cavill‘s Superman.
This is rather shocking news and news that I’m not too sure about just yet. Affleck is a much better filmmaker than he is a star and for some reason I just can’t see him dawning the cape and mask. Visions of his Daredevil role are horribly creeping back up into my skull.
Does this mean that Affleck will be involved with Justice League?
I guess only time will tell.
Are you excited about this news?
July 17th, 2015 is when the film will be dropping into theaters.
