We Have a New BATMAN!

Ladies and gents, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Warner Bros. made the announcement today that Christian Bale is out as Bruce Wayne and will be replaced by a very well known actor who most of us would recognize immediately.

Are you ready for it?

It’s none other than Ben Affleck folks! Daredevil himself would now take over the cape crusader’s mantle and will have huge shoes to fill as Christian Bale leaves behind a great legacy and the best Batman ever in my opinion.

Here’s the press release from Warner Bros. – “Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. 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. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

So what do you think? Is he going to do justice to the role or would it be another disappointment like Daredevil? Ben Affleck would see his first action as Batman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie which is set to come out in 2015.

Stay tuned for more news and updates as more details surface.
