Ben Affleck as Batman...what do you think?
SO, Ben Affleck as the new batman then?
The US actor will replace Christian Bale in a Batman-Superman mega flick slated for release in 2015.
“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,” said Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman in a statement.
Affleck in Argo:
The film, which is not yet titled, will be directed by Zack Snyder, who was behind this summer's “Man of Steel” starring Henry Cavill of Britain.
Cavill will appear alongside Affleck in the 2015 film.
“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,” Snyder said.
Bale in action as Batman in the Nolan trilogy:
Affleck’s movie “Argo” won the Oscar for best film last February.
