BEN AFFLECK Is The New BATMAN!
BEN AFFLECK has been announced as the new Batman in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel (2013).
Affleck takes over the role from Christian Bale who portrayed Bruce Wayne / Batman in the hugely successful Christopher Nolan trilogy.
The news was met with anger and upset over the Affleck choice amongst fanboys around the world, citing that Affleck was not the best choice and that there are far better actors suited for the role.
Affleck, you will remember has played a superhero before, namely Marvel's Daredevil, though the movie was not regarded as s success at all but starred Affleck's future wife, Jennifer Garner who starred as his love interest in the form of Elektra.
Affleck's career has been a bag of mixed reviews with hits and misses and we got to see him as the villain in Runner Runner (2013) and as a CIA agent rescuing Americans in Iran in Argo which he also directed to critical acclaim.
Whether the choice is good or bad, only time will tell and personally, I don't want to judge but if a new DC cinematic universe is being bourn then all casting has been done with the potential of looking at future movies and box-office success.
Remember to lookout for Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice around May 2016.
