Latest News: Warner Bros Announces Actors for Superman Batman Movie
After weeks of speculations, Warner Bros announces who will be playing the roles of Superman and Batman in the upcoming Superman Batman movie that was announced in July. Man of Steel actor, Henry Cavill will reprise his role of Superman and just announced, Ben Affleck will be Batman. The movie is slated for release July 17th 2015.
I wasn’t impressed when Henry Cavill was announced to be Superman/Clark Kent for Man of Steel. Of course, I’m pretty bias since in my mind the only person who can be the “real” Superman is Christopher Reeves and nothing can ever change my mind of this. I guess considering the newest Superman movie made over $650 million it’s pretty hard to argue that Warner Bros would want Cavill back for another movie.
Now that Ben Affleck has been chosen to be the Dark Knight, I definitely think Warners Bros have lost their mind and no amount of money could ever buy it back! You would think someone who could play Daredevil wouldn’t have much problems being Batman but need I remind you that Affleck acting as Daredevil/ Matt Murdock was as good as Roseanne Barr singing the US National Anthem. Not only was he horrible as the blind vigilante, he got majorly upstaged by his co-star Jennifer Garner and Colin Farrell. Garner, of course, was so good the studio thought it was a great idea to give Elektra her own movie. We all know how that went. Mind you, I wasn’t fond of Christian Bale as Batman in the Dark Knight Trilogy by Christopher Nolan either but I was able to see past it because everyone else in the cast did a good job to make it work. I am not sure who Warner Bros are going to get to make Affleck look good in this movie but I sure hope they have lots of funds in their budget to hire some really talented cast members.
Also announced a few cast members of this new movie are: Man of Steel stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. The rest of the cast has yet to be determined.
The new Super Hero film is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Zack Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers.
As much as I love to see Superman and Batman together on the big screen, I am pretty skeptical that it will be good enough to impress me. Hopefully, by some miracle the movie won’t be as bad as Green Lantern.
