22nd Annual UCLA School Of Theater Film And Television Film Festival - Directors Spotlight

While we’re still trying to calm ourselves down over the hype of the last Man Of Steel movie that came out this summer, we can start jumping in our chairs again for the sequel.

The moviemakers behind the famous Superman series have just recruited a key cast member for the next movie, which will feature Batman!

According to a statement by Warner Brothers, Ben Affleck has been chosen to play Batman.

The company said in their statement:

“Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project — bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in ‘Man of Steel.”

It was just announced this past July at Comic-Con that these two superheroes would be battling it out head-to-head in the next film.

One of the minds behind the movie said in a statement:

“Ben provides an interesting counterbalance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in the studio 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.”

Ben has some big shoes to fill, but this could get very interesting!
