Ben Affleck is the new Batman! Good or bad choice?

Ben Affleck is the new Batman?! Didn't see this one coming.

Warner Bros. has announced today that they have already picked 2-time
Oscar-winning actor-director Ben Affleck as the new Batman / Bruce Wayne, and will star alongside Henry Cavill as Superman / Clark Kent in 'Man of Steel' sequel.

And there are largely NOs to Ben Affleck as new Batman than YESes among the fans who are highly anticipating for the first ever Superman-Batman movie.

But they got nothing to do with it anymore. 'Man of Steel' became a huge hit, earned almost P800-million worldwide and inspired Warner

The new Superman Batman movie is set for release on July 17, 2015.
