Looks like Ben Affleck has delivered something very special in Batman V Superman…

August 8th, 2015 by Marc Comments


It looks like Batman V Superman might just be everything we hoped if this rumour plus the delaying of Affleck movies at Warners mean what we think they mean.

Word from sources at Warners is saying that a rough cut of Batman V Superman was shown to a group of Warner execs who gave the movie a standing ovation and immediately confirmed that the DC Cinemantic Universe will now revolve around comics’ greatest hero at the centre – Batman.

Word is that Affleck’s performance is so good, that he is touted already as ‘the definitive Batman’ (we got this feeling from the trailer (below)) and he is now in line for three standalone Batman movies.

This would make sense given the confirmation by Warners that have put at least two of the actor’s upcoming movies – Live By Night and The Accountant – on hold indefinitely.

Is Affleck DC’s Robert Downey Jnr? Well, that remains to be seen but if this all adds up then we could be in for something very special in BvS and once again Batman will be the jewel in DC’s crown. We’re ok with all this…

What about you all?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
