Ben Affleck to play Batman in new Superman/Batman film in 2015

According to the official release here. I know a lot of people will be writing about this and I couldn’t help but throw in my quick reaction…

Personally, I love this idea. I think he’s a phenomenal actor and quite underrated, matter of fact. As a director, he’s received much accolade, but as an actor? I think people still have nightmares regarding some of his more unfortunate roles such as Daredevil or Gigli.

I do think he has the right look too for Wayne/Batman. I can’t wait to see what they have in mind for the film, especially with respect to the characterization and differentiating this one from Christian Bale’s portrayal.

Moreover, I’m very interested in following the fans’ perspective on this. Let’s see what happens!
