Ben Affleck, the 41-year-old star of such cinematic masterpieces as Gigli and Reindeer Games, will star opposite Henry Cavill in a 2015 Batman-Superman vehicle.
“(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 retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne,” said [director Zack] Snyder. “I can't wait to work with him.”
Laugh all you want, but the latest Superman reboot earned $649 million while you sat there and made cracks about Affleck’s time on Voyage of the Mimi.
The Boston-proud actor’s stock has never been higher. His Argo won a Best Picture Academy Award last year AND people found out he could grow a solid beard.
The hits just keep on coming for this guy.
