Remember when I told you about the awesome announcement of Batman vs. Superman during the San Diego Comic Con? It was announced today that Ben Affleck is set to join Henry Cavill in the Warner Bros. "Man of Steel" sequel as Batman. Now I know he's a pretty good director, but as an actor he's just ok. I guess the Oscars behind his name made the studio forget about a little 2003 movie called "Daredevil". The problem is, he didn't win an Oscar for acting. Now, you don't have to have an Oscar to your name to play Batman, but those are some huge shoes to fill and I wouldn't have put my money on Affleck. Oh well, it's not my call. You can bet I'll be in the theater though!
The sequel is slated to be released July 17, 2015.
