Late Thursday night, Warner Bros dropped a bombshell onto the internet when they announced, in a press release, that Ben Affleck is Batman. Specifically, he is Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel, currently titled Batman vs Superman. I thought Man of Steel was the best blockbuster of the summer but am not too excited about this casting announcement.
Superman is one of the most recognizable characters ever created and he finally has a movie that I think captures the pure power of Kal-El. Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel reboots Superman’s origin story and sees him faceoff against his greatest enemy, General Zod. Watch the trailer after the jump and then read my review.
