Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Superman vs. Batman. ¬†Though Affleck was Oscar snubbed this year as a director, the film he directed won Best Picture.

And let’s be honest, when it comes to directing films, Snyder is going to need all of the help he can get.

54.6% mean rottentomatoes score

Whereas Ben’s is 94.6%,¬†as a director.

‚ÄúWe knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics‚Äô most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and¬†Ben Affleck¬†certainly fits that bill, and then some” said¬†Greg Silverman, President of¬†Creative Development¬†and Worldwide Production atWarner Bros. earlier today. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúBen provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry‚Äôs Superman,” added director Snyder. 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‚Äôt wait to work with him.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWe are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.‚Äô remarkable legacy with the character of Batman,” continued¬†Worldwide¬†Marketing¬†and International Distribution President¬†Sue Kroll.¬†He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

Warner Bros. has a longstanding relationship with Affleck. His most recent hit for the studio was 2012’s Argo, which won Best Picture at this year’s¬†Academy¬†Awards. Affleck’s next directorial effort, Live By Night, will also be produced by Warner.

The film will be penned by Snyder and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer, and is currently slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015. The sequel will reunite Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and Diane Lane.

Man of Steel has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date.

UPDATE:

Superman Vs. Batman will film in Detroit, Michigan.

Righetous Nobility 3

Man of¬†Steel might literally “set the tone” for a linear cinematic¬†DC Universe, as Empire Magazine reports that Warner Bros.¬†will want¬†Zack Snyder to direct Justice League: given¬†Man of Steel’s¬†success at the box office.

Which quite frankly makes me question if  WB executives even took the time to SEE the film they made with Snyder less than two years ago, entitled: you guessed it, Sucker Punch (23%).  Trololol.

In related superhero arms race”¬†news,¬†Thor: The Dark World¬†released a pretty bossy¬†one-sheet this week along with it’s first trailer:

Sentient Fortitude 3

My trolling of Zack Snyder evidently will be to no avail as he seems to have turned out a solid film with executive producer Christopher Nolan at his back:

In all fairness though he’s quite good at making trailers, and less good at making movies. ¬†Anywho, it seems that viral marketing campaigns are what all the “cool kids” are doing nowadays and apparently The Big Blue Boyscout¬†is no different:

Super Brawl

A Justice League of America film will now officially compete directly with The Avenger’s¬† 2 in the summer of 2015.¬†¬†Warner Bros. green lit the project and will reportedly ramp up development on it following a decisive legal victory involving the rights to Superman.¬† Opening the door for competing super squads of epic proportion.¬† A CLASH OF TITANS if you will.¬† Okay.¬† Maybe I got a little excited there.¬† It is looking pretty legit though as DC/Warner Bros. has made it clear they want a high caliber director at the helm.¬† As for the cast, let’s hope they go for a little more depth than Megan Fox.¬† Why does WB want a super-squad of it’s own?¬† Perhaps a better question is: Why WOULDN’T they want a super-squad of their own.

Can Batman go toe-to-toe with The Hulk?¬†Could Superman beat up Captain America?¬† I don’t know.¬† I’m not a rocket scientist.¬† The two superhero teams will indeed clash at the box office in the summer of 2015, as¬†Warner Bros. looks to sign a director and all star cast within the near future.¬† Having had talks with The Wachowski Brothers and Ben Affleck about directing, it seems they are willing to spend a pretty penny on bringing a Hall of Justice to the big screen in top class fashion.¬† Why are all the cool kids making movies about superhero teams these days?¬† Because effective team synergy is a powerful thing.¬† Let’s take a look.

Despite the tragic shooting that happened in a movie theater in Aurora Colorado, The Dark Knight Rises has become the biggest box office 2d film of all time, beating out its predecessor The Dark Knight.¬† Christopher Nolan’s swan song to the batman franchise was quite the conclusion, but what lies in the future for Warner Bros./DC.¬† Well I suppose rebooting America’s favorite superhero of all time will have to be ample recompense:

Let’s all hope that Zack Snyder doesn’t do to Superman whatever the hell it is he did to Watchmen and Sucker Punch.¬† It does look like the franchise is in good hands however as¬†Christopher Nolan is producing the film and let’s be honest, that guy knows whatsup.¬† The film seems to be peppered with the darker and more grounded tone that¬†Nolan used to reinvigorate the Batman Franchise.¬† With Nolan’s powerhouse trilogy concluding (somewhat), DC/Warner Bros. will be looking to further establish solid superheroes in the DC universe in order to continue competing with Marvel/Disney in Hollywood.

Who is the Man Of Steel?

Superman is a hero that reflects the potential in all of us for greatness; a beacon of light in times that are grim and a glimmer of hope for the hopeless. He‚Äôs an archetype for us to project upon; whether you consider him a messiah or just a Big Blue Boyscout, Superman‚Äôs impact on the genre and pop culture is undeniable.”¬† Let’s take a look.

Strategic Bloodthirst

The brutal yet delightful showdown between Marvel and DC rages on as Warner Bros. execs are scrambling to make some moves seeing as they have to sit back and watch The Avengers become a worldwide box office juggernaut (1.4$ billion) while it boasts a formidable critical reception(93%).¬†¬†Warner Bros. president and CEO Jeff Robinov and company have their work cut our for them as sources say they are currently spit-balling ferociously to figure out how to put a successful and high-caliber Justice League of America franchise together.¬† A major factor in accomplishing such a feat involves wooing and recruiting¬† big boss-man randy savage Christopher Nolan to spearhead what would essentially be a “JLA initiative”re-invigorating¬†Warner Bros’ stake in Hollywood.

High ups in the Warner Brother roster even openly admitted that Marvel/Disney is doing a much better job than they are:

Quote1.pngSources indicate that the execs now realize they need to hire creatives that genuinely understand the characters the way Joss Whedon was comfortable with The AvengersQuote2.png

If these people just knew what was up with the Four Basic Personality Types, maybe they’d have a viable Super-quad right now.

DC/ Warner Bros. however is still in the fight as it has yet to unleash the epic dope sauce-ee-ness that will be The Dark Knight Rises.¬† Other than that though, they indeed better start making some moves, as Marvel/Disney continues to put itself in a position to dominate Hollywood’s lucrative box-office.

Speaking of Hollywood dominance for those of you silly gooses who aren’t well-versed, the¬†The Avengers Easter Egg post-credits scene revealed that the next major villain for Earth’s Mightiest hero’s will be none other than the Mad Titan himself, Thanos the Overmaster.¬† A Bloodthirsty Intergalactic General on a mission to rid the universe of existence, if Thanos is conceived and casted correctly; he could serve as Marvel’s ultimate supervillain.

Who is Marvel’s God of War you ask? A character based off of the Greek God of Death?¬† Let’s take a look.
