For all you Super Hero Movie Lovers, Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to "Man of Steel," Warner Brothershas confirmed this to ABC News.
Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing "Argo," which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed "Man of Steel," "Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch."
"Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry's Superman," Snyder said in a statement. "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."
The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back "Man of Steel" stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
