Ben Affleck is Batman for 'Man of Steel' Sequel - Confirmed!

Ben Affleck has officially been chosen to play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel!

The 41-year-old actor will star alongside Henry Cavill in the movie that will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen!

Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” director Zack Snyder said in a statement (via Hypable). “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.”

The film is set to go into production in 2014 with a release date of July 17, 2015. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane are all confirmed to return for the film.
