Ben Affleck's Batman 'Tired' But 'Seasoned' for MAN OF STEEL Sequel

Variety reports that Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed during an investor gathering today that Ben Affleck's portrayal of Batman for the upcoming MAN OF STEEL sequel directed by Zack Snyder will be "tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile."

Tsujihara also added that Affleck was "perfect" for the role, saying: "We think it's going to be huge."

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.

Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite "Man of Steel" stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Affleck recently starred in the Academy Award-winning Best Picture "Argo," which he also directed and produced, earning acclaim and a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in the film, as well as a number of directing honors. In 2010, he starred in and directed the hit crime thriller "The Town." His recent acting work also includes "The Company Men," "State of Play," and "Hollywoodland," for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. Earlier in his career, Affleck starred in and co-wrote (with Matt Damon) "Good Will Hunting," for which he won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

The upcoming Batman film will hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
