Affleck is Batman

The New Dark Knight

Yes, Maniacs, Ben Affleck is Batman. 

Variety has officially reported the news that Affleck will don Batman’s cape and cowl in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.  

“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,” WB president Greg Silverman said in a statement.

The Batman/ Superman movie, not yet officially titled, will be released July 17, 2015. Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Amy Adams will reprise their roles. 

Director Zack Snyder has already released a statement: “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.”

Sound off below Maniacs. How do you feel about the man who once played Daredevil now portraying the Dark Knight?

 This could be interesting. Still pray they are not stupid and go with the vs mode.

I really hope this is just a late April Fool's joke.

I have mixed emotions about this, however, glad they are not rebooting Batman again.  I just pray it has good story telling and not stupid....

Cool with Affleck, not cool with Snyder.

I'm excited for this.  I generally like most of Affleck's movies and he is a comics fan.  I didn't love MOS but enjoyed it and this gets me more excited for the sequel.

Don't care. As long as it's not Bale.

This pretty much sets this outside the Nolan Batman universe. yay!

Affleck should do a good job. My concern is the Batman "older/wiser, bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter" bit.  Bruce/Bats - Clark/Supes have always been relatively the same ages.  They "grew up together" so to speak. Also, they are the ultimate team; the World's Finest. They are meant to compliment each other, not always be at each other's throats. 

The age difference between Cavill's Supes and Affleck's Bats will bug me, but as long as the deliver a high quality story with action and character development (kudos to Marvel and Captain America and the Avengers) we will have a winner.
