Ben Affleck is set to play Batman opposite Henry Cavill in the untitled “Man of Steel” sequel that will be directed by Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. announced Thursday.
Oh come on, really? Look, I like Ben Affleck as much as the next guy, but he’s going to rival Clooney as worst Batman ever. Way too pretty for that role. Michael Keaton has a dark side. Christian Bale is fucking nuts. But Affleck? Can’t wait for Batman to develop a Boston accent and nonchalant attitude toward crime fighting all while giving long, confused and emotionless stares to no one in particular off to his left and do that weird underbite thing before a climactic finish at Fenway Park.
