Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the up coming Man of Steel sequel.
“Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project — bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in ‘Man of Steel,’” the studio announced yesterday, Thursday.
Snyder officially announced Batman would be showing up in the 2015 sequel saying, “I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created,” said Snyder, “And I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest super heroes in the world.”
