So who is the next man to don the cape and cowl? Look no further than the director of Argo and former Daredevil Ben Affleck.

One of the biggest surprises of ComicCon 2013 was the announcement that Batman would appear in the follow up to this summer’s Man of Steel.

It is being reported that Affleck will officially be playing the Dark Knight, filling the tremendously large shoes Christian Bale left after Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy.

Affleck also starred in Daredevil, a 2003 Marvel superhero film that was pretty much panned by critics and fans alike (in case you forgot).

Hopefully this will fair better for the star.

Zach Snyder resumes his position in the director’s chair to take on Superman a second time. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as the Man of Steel for the sequel.

Warner Bros. has set a release date for the now untitled film for July 17, 2015. Stay tuned…
