With the confirmation of Ben Affleck being Batman many fans felt the grace period was thinking he would only play the Caped Crusader for the Man of Steel sequel but not for a possible reboot of the franchise.
"Sources say that Affleck has been signed for multiple movies, should sequels continue to proliferate. The talks were so secretive that many Warner's execs and most agents remained unaware of their existence," claims The Hollywood Reporter. Talks with Affleck began earlier this year when director Zack Snyder checked Affleck's interest. Early talks circled around story and character.
The Hollywood Reporter says Affleck will shoot David Fincher's Gone Girl this September through February before segueing to shoot Man of Steel 2/Superman vs. Batman from February through August 2014. The superhero pic will reportedly lens in Toronto.
How i feel about Ben being Batman is another topic for another day, in the mean time July 2015 is the period of time that will test Ben and fans alike!
