Ben Affleck has been chosen to play Bruce Wayne in the Superman vs. Batman movie directed by Zack Snyder that comes out in Summer 2015 according to The Guardian. Some of you may remember Zack Snyder for bringing one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of all time to the silver screen, The Watchmen, but you most likely remember him from this summer’s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavil who will reprise his role as Clark Kent in Superman vs Batman. A huge step up from Bryan Singer’s 2006 movie Superman Returns starring Brandon Routh.
So please forgive my confusion when concerning this most recent selection from Snyder. We all saw Argo, bravo, but we also saw Daredevil and we will never forget. That movie still haunts my mind like the image of me walking in on my parents when I was five and seeing them play what they would later tell me was “The Pogo Game”. I thought Ben was going down a new path following this directing niche, it seemed like a good fit, but no. This man dares to dawn the cape and cowl possibly because messing up one comic book universe simply wasn’t enough. I just don’t understand how you go from Orlando Bloom and Joseph Gordon Levitt to Gigli. And I swear if I find out that Christopher Nolan had anything to do with this decision I will lose all respect I gained for him after watching Batman Begins and maybe a little from Memento as well. The question still remains though who will be a worse Batman Affleck or George Clooney.
P.S. If I see Jennifer Garner on these credits I will start a Kickstarter fund to help me personally stop production of this movie.
