Ben Affleck will play Batman in Man of Steel sequel
Oscar-wining director, Ben Affleck, has signed on to play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
Affleck will replace Christian Bale, who has opted not to return to the franchise. Director Zack Snyder released a statement tonight saying, , “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. 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.”
Production on Man of Steel will begin next year and is expected to be released in July 2015.
