Ben Affleck will replace Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne and Batman in the sequel for Man Of Steel according to Warner Bros.
Director Zack Snyder said, ‘Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman.’
‘He 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.’
‘I can’t wait to work with him.’
Ben Affleck carried his daughter Seraphina yesterday and then they bump into groups of paparazzi which scared off Seraphina. She started to cry. As a dad, Ben reacted by asking those paparazzi to backoff. They continue to go near to the father and daughter. Then Ben shows his kungfu kick , saying “You need to be this far away”. He didn’t attack anybody, just wants to scare them off only.
If he is a boxer, I am sure those paparazzi will end up with black eyes.
Ben Affleck has something to be proud of. Hr won Directors Guild Award for Argo: “I’m on My Way”
When talk about directing, he said “I got to a point in my life where I was really down, really confused, really felt beset on all sides by life, didn’t know what was going to happen. [So] I thought, ‘I should be a director!’”
“I worked really, really hard to become the best director I could be, by putting in as [many] hours as I [could], and banging my head against a wall, berating myself, lying to myself about whether it was going to work. And I don’t think this [award] makes me a real director — but I think it means I’m on my way.”
