Warner Bros. has  announced that Ben  Affleck will be the new Batman in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel written by David S. Goyer. WHY???? No offense to Affleck who with out a doubt is an amazing actor and talented in many ways, but really replacing Christian Bale. I am just not sure of how i feel about that.

Although, Affleck has had some experience playing a hero as he played a blind Marvel crime fighter in 2003’s “Daredevil” and portrayed 1950s Superman actor George Reeves in 2006’s “Hollywoodland.”  We will see how this plays out i guess. Director Snyder  said in a statement that Affleck will provide a “balance” to Cavill’s Clark Kent. Who also mentioned the following statement:

“(Affleck) 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,” said Snyder. “I can’t wait to work with him.”

Affleck is to star opposite of  30-year-old Henry Cavill, who will reprise his role as Superman from “Man of Steel.” The movie will also feature “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.

I am a huge Batman fan and i hope this movie does not disappoint. I believe the public fell in love with Bale as Batman and it is sad to not watch him take on another Batman role however, i do wish Affleck luck and hope that he does an incredible job with this role as he normally does.

How do you guys feel about this?

  1. Thats because Bale has a huge ego and refuses to have a co-star. Thats why he always does low budget and independent films cause he wants to be the only star in the film. Affleck will do great and do a better job
