Ben Affleck Named The Next Batman

65th Directors Guild of America Awards - California

The biggest news to come out of Comic-Con 2013 came when Zack Snyder announced Batman was going to appear in the “Man of Steel” sequel and he was going to be played by none other than Ben Affleck.  The last time that Ben Affleck played a super hero was in 2003’s “Daredevil”, which was received with mixed reactions.

But as Kevin Smith once said Ben Affleck could play the shit out of any role, even if it was the shark in the remake of “Jaws”.  This movie is expected to be released in 2015 and will be the first time that Batman and Superman will appear on-screen together.
