HUGE NEWS! After much speculation whom would win the coveted role of Bruce Wayne in Zack Synder‘s upcoming Superman-Batman Mashup Film speculated to film in Toronto early 2014, Warner Bros. has confirmed that Ben Affleck is set to star opposite Henry Cavill!
Synder said in a Statement: “(Affleck) has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a Man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned Crime Fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne,” said Snyder. “I can’t wait to work with him.”.
This upcoming Blockbuster builds upon a fantastic working relationship Warner Bros. has developed with Affleck, him having directed and starred in critical and commercial successes The Town and Argo, the latter which earlier this year won Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
More to come and we couldn’t agree more with this choice! Remember that time we met him at TIFF ’12?

He was the first personage with powers to don tights and toss troubles aside. He led the way to a new age, one filled with hope beyond belief, as well as unparalleled despair. Considered to be more than a man it is interesting to note that he is not a man at all. Certainly in appearance, the eye would argue this point vehemently. Nevertheless he is from a far away planet no longer in existence. Torn asunder by wars both natural and otherwise he was forced to flee whilst still a suckling babe. Arriving here on earth he was reared by parents fitting to be called such, for they loved him as their own. Clark they called him, though Kal-El he was in the flesh. Different from everyone else he wrestled a lifetime with this reality. Odd when you think about it. Why would a god worry so? Only a man would raise such a question, and as it has already been stated, Kal-El is neither god nor man. He is a being known by many titles, and yet truly known by very few. He is the embodiment of an ideal so intimidating it borders on offensive. But beautiful it is in fact, and beautiful this movie about the mythos appears to be.
Zack Snyder has never failed when it comes to film. Perhaps financially, but never artistically, and the artist is at last ready to unveil his latest masterpiece. Feast your eyes on the splendour. Man of Steel is coming.
