Henry Cavill is returning as the Big Blue Boy Scout once again for the sequel, the big question has been who will play the Caped Crusader. Christian Bale sadly isn't reprising the role from Nolan's trilogy causing many fans to speculate possible actors. No one knew for sure ... until today, that is.
Just a few hours ago, Warner Bros. announced that Ben Affleck would don the cowl in 2015. Yes, Ben Affleck.

Now I'm not saying that Affleck will be the best Batman to ever be Batman. He probably won't outdo Bale. What I am saying is that maybe it won't be so bad. His work as director/actor for last year's Argo was great and earned him an Academy Award for best picture, and it's been a ten years since the cinematic bowel movements that were Daredevil and Gigli. He has gotten better. I believe there is hope. I believe this movie could still be great. And I believe there is a chance that Ben Affleck will surprise us all.
If he doesn't I will cry.
