Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that the Daredevil himself, Ben Affleck, will replace Christian Bale in the next Batman/Superman uber-blockbuster film set for release sometime in 2015.
“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,” said Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman in a statement.
The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, and will also star Henry Cavill as Superman.
“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.
Ben doesn’t have the best track record wit superhero movies, but we wish him the best.
