Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Ben AffleckWhether you want to remember him for directing Argo or acting in GigliBen Affleck has been chosen as the next actor to play Batman.

Taking the black cape and bat-eared costume from Christian Bale, who portrayed the Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan's recent Batman trilogy, Affleck will appear in the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Snyder released a statement announcing Affleck's casting:

"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 retains the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can't wait to work with him."

The film - tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman - is expected to be released July 2015 with production beginning in 2014.
