Ben Affleck will star as Batman in “multiple movies” over the next few years according to the contract that he signed with Warner Bros with appearing first in Man of Steel sequel releasing on July 17, 2015

Affleck is set to star in numerous Batman movies as Bruce Wayne and it’s believed that if his first performance as the character is a success then he will be asked to direct the Justice League movie.
WB announced that “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” added director Snyder. 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 are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.’ remarkable legacy with the character of Batman,” continued Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution President Sue Kroll. He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”
