    Worst Movie News Ever! Ben Affleck is the new Batman.

    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.

    Everyone is blasting Snyder and Affleck. So am I! This a joke! It's going to ruin Affleck's rep as an actor. Have people forgotten DareDevil? I'd rather have Bale back if this is what we're getting. I hope they both hear and read about fans hating this casting. We still have a year until they start production, so maybe they'll come to their senses and realize that was stupid call and choose someone better. I mean think about it. The Dahk Knight.
    Oh, I'm sorry did I break your concentration I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue. - Jules

    I'm finding it hard to understand why finding out who is going to play the part is a bad thing.

    Hahahahahahahah everyone is $#@!ting their pants. I love that my fanboy Batman/DC fanboy friend is getting pissed off.

    I love the taste of your tears.

    Now all we need is to get Matt Damon as Robin and Robin Williams as Alfred.

    I usually don't judge a movie that I haven't seen. I don't care who they get to play the part, as long as it turns out good. If it doesn't, oh well. I'll move on I guess.

    Affleck used to be a bad actor and $#@!ing Gigli, if anyone remembers that mess, was his worst film ever. Then Jersey Girls. But J-LO made him a bad actor.

    Affleck was $#@!ing awesome in The Town and Argo, which let me remind you, won Best Picture.

    But has Synder not seen Daredevil? LOL

    So Ben's just Batman? Who's gonna be Bruce Wayne then? There are major continuity issues here.

    Not really any continuity errors ben Affleck is bruce Wayne/batman. The dark knight trilogy was its own thing, nothing to do with man of steel.

    that's a good point actually, I really enjoyed that film!

    If I'm honest I'm surprised they chose Affleck for the role but I guess they must have their reasons. In my opinion Christian Bale has been the best Bruce Wayne/Batman so far and for me it will be tough for any actor to match that.

    I'm looking forward to see how this turns out though

    Definitely not my first choice lol but whatever. I don't think Bale is amazing as people make him out to be as Batman. He was awesome as Bruce Wayne though, but groggy voice got annoying.

    Starring Daredevil as Batman.

    I hate him for knocking up Jennifer Garner which put an end to Alias.

    I, too, find this kind of absurd. But, let us not forget the initial reaction to Heath "brokeback" Ledger being cast as the Joker in The Dark Knight. He totally owned that movie and is hands down the best Joker to ever grace the silver screen.

    So I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
