We learned the other night that Ben Affleck has signed on to play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. We now have information that Affleck has signed on for multiple films.
The reception has been overwhelmingly negative in regards to Affleck's casting. There was even a petition proposed to President Obama to make it illegal for Affleck to play Batman. The saddest part is it got over 5,000 signatures in less than 24-hours. However, Warner Bros. doesn't seem phased by the reception because Affleck has signed on for multiple films. I can only assume said multiples will include Justice League and at least one standalone Batman film. Who knows, he might even appear in the proposed movie for The Flash which is set to hit in 2016. Another possibility that the multiple movie deal isn't just acting. Affleck is a very talented director and has awards to prove it. I mention this because it was previously rumored that Affleck could be directing Justice League, so anything is possible.
We also have to bear in mind that his future as Batman will most likely depend on the reception of Batman vs. Superman, so we just have to be patient. If people hate it WB might can the whole thing and we may never get Justice League or The Flash. Everyone pull their panties out of their ass.
In addition to the multiple movie deal, we got word that Batman vs. Superman will be entering production in February 2014 and will run all the way until August. That is an extremely long shoot but I suppose they need it if they're going to make the release date on time. Batman vs. Superman is set to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
