The highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film, “Man of Steel” is still about two years away from being in theaters.

Last month director Zack Snyder announced at Comic Con that the film would feature both Superman and Batman. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman and now we know who will be Batman in the film. It’s Ben Affleck!

Facebook and Twitter exploded last night at the news. Some people totally in favor of the casting decision and some vehemently against it.

“(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 Snyder. “I can’t wait to work with him.”

The film still doesn’t have a title and production is set to begin next year.
