Ben Affleck Looks Badass As Batman In New Portrait: PHOTO

In honor of Batman's 75th birthday and as part of a photo montage wall at this weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego, profiling Batman throughout the years, DC Comics/Warner Bros has unveiled a new (allegedly photo-shop free) image of actor Ben Affleck mugging as the caped crusader. Affleck will play the Dark Knight opposite Henry Cavill in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Director Zack Snyder previously released an image of a beefly looking Affleck as Batty beside the new Batmobile. 

What do you think of this latest image of Affleck as Batman?

With the recent first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman in the upcoming Zack Snyder flick Batman vs. Superman, many of you may have spandex and superheroes on the brain. The joining of two such epic comic book heroes in one movie may have even prompted you to wonder, “what if it wasn’t Batman against Superman but Batman with Superman?” Some rather attractive French guys seem to have taken this line of thought one step further and created a comic fan-fiction-y trailer for Man of Steel 2: The Secret is Out.

Movies: 'The LEGO Movie' Wins the Weekend

Batman and friends enter Arkham Asylum Cuckoo Land in "The Lego Movie"

'If you build it, they will come.' They'll come in droves. It's 2014 and at this point, it's safe to say that Hollywood has mastered the art of pandering to the masses. They deliver exactly what we are pre-conditioned to want. The box office charts each year are now completely filled by franchises and pre-branded efforts. Frozen, for example, isn't a true original, but the 12th episode of the Disney Princess franchise that's been breaking box office records since (gulp) 1937. It's now extremely rare for a non-sequel non-pre-branded film to ever become a mammoth hit; only one "original" per year even cracks the annual top ten now (Gravity in 2013, Ted in 2012, none in 2011) which is a big downturn from the Aughts which themselves weren't as original as the Nineties.

All of which brings us to this weekend's chart topper,THE LEGO MOVIE. With its built-in nostalgia for childhood as well as a huge swath of pre-licensed characters to dangle in front of your 3D glasses (Gandalf, Batman, Han Solo, Wonder Woman, and dozens more), it's easy to approach the new hit expecting the worst. But there's no need! I'll use Bad Cop / Good Cop (voiced by Liam Neeson) to illustrate the situation and my own immediate mood swing as the movie built its case.

Ben Affleck Will Totally Fill the Batman Codpiece, Producer Confirms

E! news reports that everyone was talking about Ben Affleck's manhood at the 25th Producers Guild of America last night.

Batman_affleckFirst CBS producer Chuck Lorre told the audience a story about using the urinal next to Affleck:

"Yes I peeked. And yes, Comic Con, he can play Batman."

And Affleck followed with his own gag:

"I was at the bar briefly, and I came back to my seat and somebody said, ‘You know, there was a guy up on stage who said you have a big d--k,'" the Oscar winner joked to the audience. "I was like, ‘You know, isn't that always how is goes? The one time it happens and I miss it!' Thank you very much. Whoever you are, God bless you. I'm often confused with Matt Damon but rarely with Michael Fassbender, so..."

Unfotunately the Man of Steel sequel has been pushed to May 6, 2016 so it'll be awhile before we're seeing that.
