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.

All these actors have got to be in touch with Biogensis or something. You see them routinely gain or lose like 50 lbs for roles. I have to hand it to them, they are dedicated for the part. They almost always get to the target weight

I told people to go watch "Lords of Dogtown" and tell me Heath Ledger can't step into a character. I was right.


Ben A in a Batman costume isn't going to be terrible... it's just that the Batman Nolan trilogy just got wrapped up, and now they are doing this already.
They are doing this so they can get in on the money.

With avengers sucess of a billion dollars, they want in on it.

They are actors. Some of them work out 6 to 10 hours a day for roles.

But some probably do juice.

@DrPhil If a girl is drunk, is it OK for Ben Affleck to play Batman?

I think The Departed is one of the most overrated movies of the last 30 years, and it gets more hype than what it deserves because the Academy gave Scorsese an Oscar out of guilt after screwing him with Goodfellas.

I actually believe that The Town is even better than The Departed but I do like the movie quite a bit.

Nicholson is great but I prefer Pete Postlewaite. Damon, DiCaprio and Wahlberg were all very good but I prefer Renner and Affleck.

Blake Lively is in my Top Five. She's a combination of a dirty white trash hot chick and an elegant beauty.

Ryan Reynolds got it right this time.

There are plenty of great movies released every year. You'll just need to dig a little harder to find them because they don't have enormously bloated marketing budgets.

Yeah, I'm done with Superhero movies and CGI explosionfests in general. Theres's basically no drama in the storyline. There might be some little twists, a secondary character might die, bu you're really just following the same familiar path. It's tired. I know people like them but to me they've gotten to be a bore.

But he has a body language that is the antithesis of Batman/Bruce Wayne. A percolating uncertainty that's perfect for an overachieving outsider. There's a set to his jaw that says 'someone is going to find me out any moment now.'

Bruce Wayne/Batman needs to exude privilege and omnipresence.
Yeah, that says it better than I managed. Nothing against Affleck really. He's done some good stuff that I've certainly enjoyed. But this just seems completely miscast and I don't understand it at all.

I agree that it's overrated, but I still really enjoyed it. I mainly remember it now for the sheer number of head shot killings.

People don't like The Departed, they like the Dropkick Murphys.

That said, mentioning the movie reminded me of one of John Oliver's BEST jokes on The Daily Show, calling Anthony Weiner 'Tighty Whitey Bulger.'

I am looking forward to a few movies coming out like Bale's new movie. Looks pretty good.
