Ben Affleck Is 'Man of Steel' Sequel's Batman

Holy crap. According to The Hollywood Report, Ben Affleck will follow Christian Bale as Batman. The Argo star and director will don the famous Batman cowl in Warner Bros.'s upcoming Superman/Batman movie.

This is an interesting turn of events, as Affleck was once rumored to direct Justice League with the possibility of playing Batman then too.

UPDATE: Warner Bros. has confirmed the news, issuing the following press release:
Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in “Man of Steel.” The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. 
Affleck joins Henry Cavill and Amy Adams in the upcoming sequel. Zack Snyder returns to direct. The Superman/Batman movie is due to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
