Ben Affleck Is The New Batman

Posted: August 23, 2013 in Movies


(Variety) 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. Affleck becomes the eighth actor to play the Caped Crusader, following Bale, George Clooney and Michael Keaton. “We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” WB president Greg Silverman said in a statement. Directed by “Man of Steel” filmmaker Zack Snyder, the Superman-Batman feature will open worldwide on July 17, 2015, with Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Diane Lane reprising their roles. 

Christian Bale out. Ben Affleck in. I don’t know why there’s this stigma around Ben Affleck as an actor. Argo was good, The Town was great, Good Will Hunting was a long ass time ago but that was great too. To me he’s pretty decent and he’ll probably do fine as Batman.

And let’s not forget that he was banging J-Lo in her prime, and her prime was damn near as hot as it gets. She was my number one at the time. So you have to salute him for that. Remember this poster?


I’ll leave you with Ben Affleck’s best performance to close out my thoughts on him. “Applesauce, bitch.”
