Goodbye, Metropolis! Hello, Gotham City!
Nananananananananananana- Batman!!!!! Just like every Fanboy in the world I have been loving the hero hype of the past few years. This past summer has been even better bringing with it the announcement of Superman/Batman. Now unlike a lot of other people, I haven't been going nuts trying to figure out who should don the cape and cowl. I figured we have time, heck the script isn't even written yet. You can imagine my surprise when Warner Brothers does something so very, well, them... They cast Ben Affleck as the caped crusader. I'm sure Mr. Affleck will do great, but if they were announcing him as the director of the next Batman project I'd be more excited. As is, I kind of feel like someone is playing an April Fools joke on me. Again, Affleck has the chops. I loved him in The Town which was incredibly acted in and directed by him. In my opinion he had already proven himself capable of carrying a superhero role when he donned tight outfit and mask in the superior Directors Cut of Daredevil. He's already played Superman George Reeves in Hollywoodland. Maybe it was destiny. Once he dons the cape and cowl he will have been the first actor to play Superman AND Batman in major motion pictures. Cross your fingers with me, and lets just be grateful that they didn't cast Matt Damon as Dick Grayson. Anyway, just click here to link to the full press release from DC.
