Ben Affleck To Be The Next Batman

No this is not a rumor folks! It was confirmed today by Warner Brothers themselves that Ben Affleck has officially be named to be the next batman in the sequel to Man of Steel! The film is due in theaters on July 17, 2015 which really doesn’t give them much time to work. Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Productions and Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution of Warner Bros. pictures made the announcement today.

Greg Silverman said:
“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”

Director Zack Snyder said: 
“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.”
