Are you ready to see Ben Affleck as Batman? Well, the time is nearing. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in post-production. Will this be another benchmark in Affleck’s movies?
Not that it hasn’t been the case, but with all the recent hype concerning the series of productions in Marvel’s movies, it seems that DC Comics has decided to take it up a notch with a series of productions of its own. Ben Affleck is among the first to participate in the series’ collective “initiative.” Sure, there has been a series of Batman movies in the past. However, this is the first time the character has interacted with another DC characters outside the parameters of Gotham City.
Alongside Ben, there are a number of supporting cast members to join. Henry Cavill plays the part of Superman, as he did in Man of Steel. Also, Amy Adams is playing the part of Lois Lane.
As mentioned, this particular movie will be introducing other DC characters. It’s a possible attempt to ready fans and viewers for future films or other collaborative efforts. Both Wonder Woman and Aquaman will be appearing in the film alongside Affleck’s Batman.

As can be seen, Ben is also being called “Batfleck.” While there is a lot of speculation about Affleck’s Batman role, he appears confident in his ability to do the job. Well, actually on Ben’s part, the job is done, right? Since he’s done, it looks as though he will be one of the presenters at the 2015 Oscars.
Being an Oscar winner, himself, Affleck definitely has the stage experience to make it happen.

Having just finished Gone Girl last year, Ben seems to not want to take any breaks in his stride. According to the Internet Movie Database, Affleck has quite a number of films lined up for the next few years. Hard work pays off? Well, after 63 awards won — two of them Oscars — it’s proof that Ben’s movies do perform and deliver.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release in the United States on March 25, 2016.
What are your thoughts of Ben Affleck’s Batman portrayal? Do you think he has what it takes to be the Dark Knight or Bruce Wayne? How about the costume?
