Ben "Batman" Affleck . Who's excited?

"Holy Sh*t! Affleck to play as Batman, Batman!"

Yeap I guess you guys all know the Batman news already. Yeap, after weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. 

I am not sure who casted Ben in this, but Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in his untitled Batman and Superman project. Yeap, he's making a new universe for us all, sharing his vision on the movie he established in "Man of Steel".

Scheduled to open worldwide on July 17, 2015

Okay, Snyder did a good job in his re-imagined origin of the movie "Man of Steel" Which earned more than  $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together. 

Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Snyder expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, “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.”

People from Warner Bros. see to be thrilled that Ben Affleck is coming on board but there are some people online who seem to know better. As for me, well I'm interested to find out how Snyder would be treating this movie and how Ben will portray Batman / Bruce Wayne. Onward to the Batman and Superman movie! :)

Affleck recently starred in the Academy Award®-winning Best Picture “Argo,” which he also directed and produced, earning acclaim and a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in the film, as well as a number of directing honors. In 2010, he starred in and directed the hit crime thriller “The Town.” His recent acting work also includes “The Company Men,” “State of Play,” and “Hollywoodland,” for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. Earlier in his career, Affleck starred in and co-wrote (with Matt Damon) “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay.
