Stop Me If You Have Heard This Before, Ben Affleck Is the New Batman

hollywood-movie-newsNope, it isn’t a joke. Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has tapped Ben Affleck to play Batman in their forthcoming Batman/Superman (or is it Superman/Batman?) movie. Affleck is the eight actor to portray The Dark Knight. Batman/Superman feature will open worldwide on July 17, 2015, along with Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Diane Lane reprising their roles. Director Zack Snyder had the following to say:

“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,” Snyder said in a statement. “I can’t wait to work with him.”

So what do you think? Did Warner Bros. make a good pick? Me personally, not sure what to make of this news yet. (Source: Variety)
