MUMBAI: The untitled movie by the Warner Bros’ is set to release on 17 July 2015. The sequel to Man of Steel has roped in Argo award winning star Ben Affleck.
Warner Bros’ had previously released Argo and is also behind his next directorial movie Live by Night.
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has been asked to rework on Batman and not base it on the Dark Knight series. Affleck will be seen with Henry Cavill who will play the role of Superman. David Goyer will be scripting the movie.
Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane who were a part of the first movie will also be seen in this. “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,” said Warner Bros’ president of creative development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman on the project.
