We have our new Batman for the new Batman/Superman movie, and it is Ben Affleck! Warner Bros. made the announcement today Ben Affleck will be staring as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the film, as well as announcing that the movie will be relased on July 17th, 2015. Here is what Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. executives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll had to say about the casting:
Greg Silverman: “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.”
Zack Snyder: “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."
Sue Kroll: “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."
This is definitely some exciting and news for the Batman/Superman movie. Batman/Superman will be released on July 17, 2015.
