Ben Affleck will be the best Batman EVER— said no one. Because Christian Bale has done such an amazing job as the dark mask wearing vigilante, its hard to think of a replacement. The Oscar- winning director is set to star as Batman in Man of Steel sequel the studio announced Thursday. Zack Snyder will be returning to direct Affleck and Henry Cavill in the still-untitled film, which will be the first time Batman and Superman have shared the big screen. The press release announcing the news says that Affleck’s Batman will be “an entirely new incarnation of the character.” Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will be returning to reprise their roles in the film as well, which is slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.
Affleck is a talented actor, so I guess we will have to wait and see how it plays out.
