Heartthrob Ben Affleck will star in the role of Batman opposite the muscle-licious Henry Cavill as Superman in the sequel to ‘Man of Steel’ which is due to hit big screens in 2015.

Judging from the talk on Twitter today after the announcement, superhero franchise fans have slammed Warner Brothers for the decision.

This is not Affleck’s first super hero role – in 2003 he played blind crime fighter Daredevil which was considered a disappointment as it only made $179 million worldwide at the box office.

But here at Star Observer, we are just excited to see some more shirtless action from the Man Of Steel, Henry Cavill, and only hope that Affleck does some serious bulking up for the role too!
