This is the one where Batman and Superman are supposed to team-up for the first time on the big screen.
Some, especially in the twittersphere, think the Affleck casting comes outta left field.
Entertainer Wil Wheaton tweets:
Affleck's last foray with special powers was in that super flop, "Daredevil" in 2003.
This news ends weeks of rumors about who would play the caped crusader in the yet-to-be named action movie.
“It's a big cape, cowl, and utility belt to fill to say the least,” says Dunnan.
Affleck joins the Batman ranks following Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kimer, George Clooney and Christian Bale.
In a news release from Warner Brothers, filmmaker Zac Snyder says Affleck has "the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retains the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne."
Affleck will star opposite Man Of Steel's Henry Cavill, who will return as Clark Kent/Superman.
Now who will play the villain?
