Well, it’s official. Two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck will portray Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which is slated to open in July 2015 and will be a box office hit simply for being the first live action feature film to finally feature Superman and Batman together in the SAME film (plus I’m sure it’ll also tell a good story). Quite honestly, Affleck is a perfect choice for the role. He has the range to pull off the dual role, and this wouldn’t be the first comic book-based film he’s been involved with. He portrayed Matt Murdock/Daredevil in 2003’s Daredevil and George Reeves (who portrayed Clark Kent/Superman in the 1950s TV show The Adventures of Superman) in 2006’s Hollywoodland. He also played a comic book artist who falls in love with a lesbian in 1997’s Chasing Amy). Affleck has also been rumored as Warner Bros.’ top choice to direct the Justice League movie, and if they do actually offer it to him, I hope he takes it. The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in May and the Man of Steel sequel featuring Superman AND Batman opens in July; can 2015 get any bigger?
