Just revealed tonight, Academy Award winner Ben Affleck will be joining Henry Cavill as Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
After weeks of speculation we now know who Batman will be.
“Affleck is no stranger to the superhero genre. He played the title role in Marvel’s 2003 film, Daredevil, and embodied George Reeves — who starred in the 1950s TV series Adventures of Superman — in 2006’s Hollywoodland. The move also furthers Affleck’s relationship with Warner Bros. after last year’s Academy Award-winning Argo and the crime drama, Live By Night, on which he serves as both a director and co-writer.”
