Ben Affleck Is The New BatmanAugust 22, 2013
Warner Bros. announced in a press release today that Ben Affleck will play Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film, slated for release on July 17th, 2015. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Snyder’s Man Of Steel film has made more than $650 million worldwide, and aims to continue that success with the new crossover film. Fans had been speculating about who would take on the cape and cowl after Christian Bale opted out, with many claiming it would be very tough to replace him. Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. are looking to establish a new vision of Batman, and Affleck is a solid actor; he did a great job in The Town, and is a two-time Oscar winner.
