There was much talk about what character Ben Affleck would be cast as in the follow up of “Man Of Steel.”
Rumors have been swirling about who would be playing Gotham’s vigilante guardian. Speculation can be put to rest now that the news has been made official. Ben Affleck will portray Batman in “Man of Steel 2” (or whatever the name will be). Director, Zack Snyder broke the news this morning naming Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, Batman(Bruce Wayne).
The project was announced at Comic-Con earlier this year, prompting much speculation surrounding who would play the Caped Crusader. Zack Snyder is back in the director’s chair for the project, which places Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time.
“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder wrote. “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.”
Henry Cavill, of course, will be returning as Superman in the yet-to-be-named sequel. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane are also set to reprise their respective roles.
The duel superhero clad film is slated to be released on: July 17, 2015
