According to CBM, Warner Bros has announced actor and director Ben Affleck will be Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Man Of Steel follow-up that will feature both Krypton’s last son (Henry Cavill) and The Dark Knight. Speculation had been rampant from Orlando Bloom to Christian Bale returning to a huge paycheck. Now Warners has announced an out of left field surprise with the official casting of Affleck as the Caped Crusader for the film to be released July 2015!

Warner Bros. Greg Silverman had this to say:

“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”

Technically, he already played Superman with his portrayal of George Reeves in “Hollywoodland”.
