Ben Affleck has won the role of Batman!
Zack Snyder’s latest epic Batman Vs Superman will see the two superheros collide. However Affleck, 41, who most recently won awards for self directed Argo, is a little too merose and timid for the role.
Snyder added “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder wrote. “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.”
We certainly think someone had a gander at our shortlist in a previous post on the Bat-potentials. 🙂
We’ve nothing against Benji, but he wasn’t right for this role and Synder has made a gloryfied mistake to gain Hollywood headlines and the movie is going to peak lower than what it could have achieved in fan support.
Ben also comes with stigma from playing a hero previously typecast as Daredevil, which was a sensational flop in cinemas.
Some people do not fit the role and Ben is past the Bat suit unfortunately and was given the role for some media attention only which now questions the legitimacy of the superhero characters themselves when more sequels need to be made.
