Warner Bros have announced that Ben Affleck will take on the role of Batman in the Batman/Superman movie with a 2015 release date. Affleck will play opposite british actor Henry Cavill as he reprises his role as Superman in the as yet untitled movie.
Zack Snyder who will direct the movie said - ”(Affleck) 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,”
We are sure that this casting will level some criticism from fans of the Batman franchise, after all Affleck’s previous outing as a superhero (Daredevil) didn’t go to well. We say let’s wait and see there has obviously been a lot of very knowledgable people involved in this casting decision, so for once let’s put our trust in them and see what happens!
