Ben Affleck Has Joss Whedon’s Support to Play Batman
Some 24 hours after it was announced that Affleck would take on the role as the Caped Crusader in the upcoming Batman/Superman film with Henry Cavill, Whedon tweeted the following:
Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin -- just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe -- I'm in.

The tentatively titled Superman vs. Batman, the sequel to Zack Synder’s Man of Steel, is slated for a July 2015 worldwide release.
