That’s still not the official title, but it’s one that keeps coming up. Warner Bros. also announced that this would be the opening of the movie. Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense.

Superhero movie fans, we have our next Dark Knight. Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” Warner Brothers has confirmed. Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing “Argo,” which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed “Man of Steel,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in a statement. “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.” The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The announcement of Affleck in one of the lead roles followed weeks of speculation about who would play Batman in the hotly anticipated film. After Christian Bale, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, nixed the idea of returning to the role, a number of actors were rumored to be on board the project, including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender.

The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures  representatives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll:

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” Greg Silverman, president of creative development at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.
