Ben Affleck is the new Batman

Ben Affleck is the new Batman
Trey Barrineau, USA TODAY 9:27 p.m. EDT August 22, 2013
He'll replace Christian Bale in the Batman- movie planned for 2015.

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

Warner Bros. made the announcement on 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 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 /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 . 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 previous experience as a superhero -- he played Daredevil in the 2003 film of the same name.

I am too. At least he's taking the criticism in stride.

It won't be JGL.

They're looking to cast against type, so it might be very interesting.

Yeah, the guy from Girls is purportedly the front runner.

(JGL wasn't Dick Grayson. He was John Blake.)

Kevin Smith on Ben Affleck's 'Batman' costume: 'You have not seen this costume on film before'
Nov. 11, 2013, 5:02 PM EST
By Greg Gilman
TheWrap

"Batman vs. " stars Ben Affleck as a brand new Batman, and like every other incarnation of the DC superhero, he'll be wearing a brand new suit. And according to self-professed superfan Kevin Smith, it's awesome.

The filmmaker and "Comic Book Men" star told KROQ personality Ralph Garmen during their weekly live podcast, "Hollywood Babble-On," that director Zack Snyder had shown him a picture of Affleck in costume backstage at a Q&A event over the weekend promoting the Blu-ray release of "Man of Steel."

"I saw the Batman costume. More than that, I saw a picture of him in the costume," Smith said. "Now I don't want to give anything away, because that's up to them and stuff, but I'm going to say this -- I instantly bear hugged him. You have not seen this costume, in a movie, on film before. And for a comic book fan, it was mind bending."

Blogs around the web have been speculating that the influence for the new costume design hails from Lee Bermejo's 2011 graphic novel "Batman: Noël," which is based on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

Smith, who was commissioned by Warner Bros. in the mid '90s to write a "" movie that never got made, did not address those rumors. He did, however, make sure to emphasize that Snyder and his producing team are not making the same mistake prominently featured on George Clooney's suit in "Batman & Robin."

"Everyone always does this "Matrix"-y/"X-Men" black thing," Smith said. "There wasn't a single nipple on this ****in' suit, man. It was fantastic."

Affleck has previously said that Snyder's "brilliant" approach to the character after the success of Christopher Nolan's critically-acclaimed "Dark Knight" trilogy is what made him sign on for the film.

"Zack had this incredible take on it," Affleck told Jimmy Fallon in September. "Obviously you can't do what Christian [Bale] did — those movies are awesome, amazing — so he wants to do something different, but still in keeping with that. So I thought, 'This is a brilliant way to do this, I really know how to hook into this.'"

Smith echoed Affleck's own excitement, and assured fans Snyder's approach would indeed be different.

"I'm already, obviously, a flag waiver for the movie, but the costume blew my mind," Smith added. "I'm so ****ing happy, I think everyone is going to be like, 'Holy shit.' It's its own thing. We haven't been down this path at all."

I bet they've just revamped the 60's colors and made the design more modern.

This is a Snyder movie, so I think you have to think in terms of his color palette.

Very bleak or monochromatic. Basically any screenshot from either 300 or Man of Steel will show it.
