Ben Affleck Is Batman, Joining Henry Cavill As Man Of Steel, But Can He Outdo Christian Bale?

BenAffleckBen Affleck was named as the replacement for Christian Bale as Batman when the exciting Batman and Superman movie (AKA MARVEL-killer) is released on the anticipated date of July 17th, 2015. But the selection of Ben Affleck has lit up Twitter, and to this point of this 23rd, August day at 4 am, the Twitter Top Trends includes #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck – a statement that some don’t like the selection of the star of ARGO.

Let’s see some tweets on that:

Ok, some of those are down-right funny: the Autopilot in airplane!

But all of this is because there are some who can’t see Ben Affleck doing dour and moody – the requirements necessary to play Bruce Wayne, and really started with Michael Keaton’s Batman with Tim Burton.

But I think all of that’s unfair. I’m not sure how Ben Affleck came to be selected, but it seems to mark a turning point in the character’s arc. Just how he will interact with Henry Cavill as Man Of Steel is to be seen.

That’s up to the writers.

Stay tuned.
