Cool Guy News: Ben Affleck is the new Batman

The rain has been pouring down on the chests of several Caped Crusader hopefuls ever since a sequel was announced at SDCC for this decade’s attempt at a compelling Superman film, but it appears to be a baptism for only one. Fitting for his new career trajectory, Ben Affleck is born again as The Batman in the next Man of Steel.  Yes, he has officially left Daredevil behind, blind, crying in the fetal position in an alley with Elektra, remnants of the cast of X-Men the Last Stand, The Fantastic Four, and a bevy of other characters mangled by corporate greed and several sets of “fresh eyes” that obviously suffer from glaucoma.

With Zack Snyder at the helm, I have high hopes that the ultimate DC showdown/team-up/mercurial relationship will be as riveting as Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns. At the very least it may just be Injustice: Gods Among Us, with two juggernauts smashing in to each other, reducing Gotham and Metropolis to nothing more than blood and dust—but hey, it will look cool!

Oh and Ryan Reynolds, take notes here please. The third time is either the charm or the proverbial nail in the comic book coffin.

      Who knows! He certainly is an interesting choice. We’ll see what happens though. I’m waiting to pass judgement until I see it.

      Thank so much and thank you for stopping by!
