Fans of the “Batman” franchise are going to see an unfamiliar man behind the cape in the upcoming sequel. ”Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will star Ben Affleck instead of the usual Christian Bale. Although Bale is known to have the mysterious voice of Batman down to a science, movie critics can agree that Affleck will be able to compare. The past five Batman movies, dating back to the 1980s, have starred both Michael Keaton and Christian Bale, and it may be the right time to switch up the role yet again. Something special about this film? You can currently find it being filmed right here in Chicago! We can’t wait to see Ben Affleck in this new light; watch for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, coming to theaters in May of 2016.
