And let’s be honest, when it comes to directing films, Snyder is going to need all of the help he can get.
Whereas Ben’s is 94.6%, as a director.
“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ 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.”
“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s 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’t wait to work with him.”
“We are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.’ 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.
Superman Vs. Batman will film in Detroit, Michigan.
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.
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:
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’s an archetype for us to project upon; whether you consider him a messiah or just a Big Blue Boyscout, Superman’s impact on the genre and pop culture is undeniable.” Let’s take a look.
