Ben Affleck to star as Batman
According to Warner Bros., Ben Affleck will star as Batman in Zack Snyder’s re-imagining of the character for the big screen.
After the “successful” Superman reboot, director Snyder made it known that he would be pitting The Dark Knight against the Man of Steel for the sequel and rumors abounded as to who would play opposite Henry Cavil in the role.
“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.”
Affleck is a bit of a comic book nerd himself, and this isn’t his first time to don a pair of tights. His role as Daredevil left a bad taste in our mouths, but he’s been known to trump expectations before. What do you think of the choice? Tell us in the comments.
