Ben will step into the ring with returning Man of Steel star Henry Cavill and will be directed by returning director Zack Snyder. Superman: Man of Steel went on to make around $650 million.

Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their Man of Steel roles in the new movie.

Director Zack Snyder said of Ben in a release, “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.”

On an interesting side note, Ben Affleck played televisions Superman actor George Reeves in the 2006 movie Hollywoodland.  If you haven’t seen it, watch it because it was pretty good.
