Anytime I can use a John Byrne comic book piece to promote a story, I am all about it. This time, it is for Christian Bail's "Dark Knight" audition!
Bale is in Val Kilmer's batman suit for the audition. It doesn't look right on Christian does it?
This will be released as a bonus on the upcoming “The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition” box set.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Affleck will be just fine....
Daredevil as Batman? It appears so as it was just announced that Ben Affleck will be donning the cowl as Batman in the upcoming Superman/Batman movie.
EW.com broke the news that Affleck has been chosen.
Henry Cavill will return as Superman. Other "Superman" cast members returning will be Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
Zack Snyder will also return as director for the "Superman/Batman" movie.
Snyder had this to say about Ben being chosen to play Bruce Wayne:
“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.”
“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. 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,” Warner Bros. exec Greg Silverman said in the announcement.

As if having Emma Stone as Peter Parker's love interest in the new Spider-Man film wasn't enough to entice us, the latest Spider_man movie poster has sealed the deal.
Columbia Pictures has released the movie poster for the Spider-Man reboot out in July. The film retells the legend of Spider-Man and lets you know, it is not going to be anything like Sam Rami's take on the web slinger.
