Ben Affleck is Batman. Discuss.

He kicked ass in Argo. Undeniable. Can he be the steely, brooding World's Greatest Detective (a role, I might add, WE have yet to see in any Batman film) we've been waiting for, standing toe to toe with  the Man of Steel? Welp, all we know is that WE DON'T KNOW ANYTHING...but the release date, which is now July 2015. Well..we do know a little. Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, the current movie Superman, and a sizable chunk of established actors from the Man of Steel film...and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from breaking Bad as Lex Luthor. Director Zack Snyder stated “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He 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. I can’t wait to work with him.” David S. Goyer handles the writing duties once again.

...and now you have 2 years to get used to this. LOOK AT IT!!!
