By now we all know that Ben Affleck is going to take on the role of Batman in upcoming movies.
The news broke almost a month ago now and the internet and fans had mixed opinions on the actor taking over from Christian Bale and now more information is slowly starting to be released regarding the film – but nothing major.
We also know that the next Batman movie is set to be the ‘Man of Steel’ sequel which will either be known as ‘Man of Steel 2’ or ‘Batman vs Superman’.
Kevin Tsujihara (pictured below)the CEO of Warner Bros spoke recently at a conference in Beverly Hills and said that Ben Affleck was “perfect” for the role.
Tsujihara also discussed the reaction from fans that Ben Affleck would be replacing Christian Bale as The Dark Knight in the sequel: “Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character. The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character,” he said.
The CEO of Warner Bros also spoke about how Batman will be “tired and weary” in the upcoming movie almost like the “job” was becoming too much and discussed the movie though very briefly: “We think it’s going to be huge. We think it’s the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman.”
Tsujihara also teased at the conference that more DC superhero announcements could be made in the next few months. These could include video games, television, film and consumer products.
‘Man of Steel 2’ or ‘Batman vs Superman’ is set to be released in cinemas worldwide on the 17th of July 2015 and will see Henry Cavill return to take on the role of Superman.
While the internet went crazy about Ben Afflect taking on the role as Batman some got creative and one made this trailer (fake of course) but very convincing.
