Ben Affleck is Batman.

The actor will replace Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming untitled Superman-Batman feature for Warner Bros., the studio announced Thursday.

Man of Steel actors Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane are reprising their roles with Zack Snyder on board to direct.

The film is slated to bow on July 17, 2015.

I thought this was a joke post.

First he's an unconvincing Daredevil.

Then he's a suicidal Superman.

Now he's the big-headed Batman!

He's so not the superhero type at all, yet he seems to keep landing on them.

Looks like fans have their scapegoat if the movie turns out mediocre "Oh it's because Ben Affleck was crap as Batman". The writing and directing will be a million times more important than who is playing Batman, as long as he puts on a bit of muscle to fill out the suit and doesn't use a terrible voice he'll be fine.

That would be the best Batman ever. 

 

I'm not really sold on this.  I hope it's not supposed to be the same Batman from the Nolan movies.

What's so bad about him? I've only seen him in Good Will Hunting and Daredevil. Saw Daredevil like 7 years ago or something so I don't remember much about it.

It's so weird when you realize an actor in your film is a better director than the actual director.

You'd think he'd learn his lesson after Draedevil.

Good director, but as an actor, well....:?

That would be great, they're supposed to be somewhat inspired by The Dark Knight Returns so I'd love to see a disheveled Batman.

Crap is still crap no matter how old it is. He's made great movies since then, but you'd think he'd stay away from the superhero roles. They probably gave him some sweetheart of a deal for this role as an incentive.

Indeed. I've enjoyed him as writer/director but I've never seen a movie I've enjoyed him in as a star.

I don't see why people are complaining, I think he's great for it.  I didn't even think he made a bad Daredevil though the movie itself could've been way better.

Ben Affleck would make a good Bruce Wayne. I said Bruce Wayne.
