Ben Affleck poised to play Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ sequel

Posted: August 22, 2013 in Movies

The wait is over friends, and likely the news disappoints you as much as it did me.  Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have announced that Oscar nominated director Ben Affleck will be donning the cape and putting on the cowl as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

The announcement was sent out to press earlier this evening to mixed results.   Ben Affleck certainly brings a star power to the Bruce Wayne personality and he’s got “experience” playing a superhero with the disappointing Marvel film Daredevil.  However, Ben Affleck has never been known as a “great” actor and he’s had his share of bombs in the past.  However, Affleck’s career in Hollywood was resurrected with him as a director and most recently his Oscar nomination for his film Argo.

Warner Bros.  has been trying to shoehorn Affleck into a DC directed film for ages now, most recently all the rumors surrounding a potential Justice League film with Affleck as the director.

I’ll keep you posted.
