  • So you were excited for the upcoming DC movies?

    Sorry, we all lose.

    Ben Affleck is gonna be the new freakin' Batman. Lulz, that is all.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/m...atman/2690301/

    Ben Affleck will replace Christian Bale in the Batman-Superman movie that's scheduled to be released in July 2015.

    Warner Bros. made the announcement Thursday.

    From the press release announcing the casting:

    "Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder's as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director's vision of their universe, which he established in "Man of Steel." The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

    "Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite "Man of Steel" stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

    "In the announcement, Silverman stated, '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.'

    "Snyder also expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, '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. I can't wait to work with him.'

    "Kroll added, 'We are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.' remarkable legacy with the character of Batman. He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.'

    Affleck has some previous experience as a superhero -- he played Daredevil in the 2003 film of the same name.

      2 things I don't like...DC and Ben Affleck the only thing worst than having him play Batman would be to have Ashton Kutcher play somebody...doesn't matter who.

          I suppose Matt Damon could be playing Robin.


          I literally would rather see Richard Simmons be Batman.

          Try to think about Affleck doing a Batman voice without laughing.

            So you enjoyed Bale's lisp? I don't know if he can pull it off, but I know he's not a bad actor.

                Meh, following the current Batman films is going to be tough for anyone IMO. Ben is at least likeable... Hopefully he pulls this superhero off better than his first.

                  I'm extremely furious right now.

                  I think Affleck HAS gotten better as an actor and there's no denying his writing/directing abilities but... NO. JUST.... NO.

                  Ashton's actually not that bad of an actor. He wouldn't be able to pull of a major hero role though. We'll have to see how he does as Jobs.

                  At least Matt Damon is an awesome actor...

                      Yea they could have hired the backstreet boys to take turns playing him....Beyond that, no this is probably the worst casting of all time.

                        I wonder will this be a one time deal for ben? I hope at the least he signed a multi film contract. Otherwise, it would be deja-vu all over again for wb.

                            I'm fairly certain he signed on for at least three films (like Bale). Man of Steel 2, Justice League, and the Batman reboot. Not the worst choice IMO. I personally would've went with Jim Caviezel, but Affleck is not a bad choice.

                            He is much better than most of the other names that were getting tossed around. I also remember people complaining about Heath Ledger when he was casted as the Joker. How did that turn out?

                            It doesn't matter though. Everyone's going to pay to see the two all time biggest comic book heroes in the same film regardless of who's playing Batman. Lol

                              Terrible casting. They should have got some up and coming actor. Either way the new Batman movies won't come close to the Dark Knight trilogy
