Affleck Is Too Old To Play Batman

Ben Affleck will replace Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming untitled Batman-Superman feature for Warner Bros., the studio announced Thursday. Affleck becomes the eighth actor to play the Caped Crusader, following Bale, George Clooney and Michael Keaton. Affleck is 41 — and too old for the part. His predcessors were in the their early or mid 30s when they donned the Cape. When Affleck played superheroes years ago, his career tanked. But I guess he’s in a safer place now. And wants the money.
