When it was first announced that Hollywood star Ben Affleck has been cast in the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman in the new movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there was a lot of negativity sent his way, with fans very unhappy by the decision. Fortunately though, as the time has passed, the negativity has died down and fans finally seem to be giving Ben the benefit of the doubt.
As well as the fans slowly coming round to the idea of Ben Affleck playing Batman, there have been a lot of fellow stars who have come out to give the actor their backing and support. One such star who has given his backing to Ben playing the role, is the former Batman star Adam West, who has admitted that he believes Affleck will do a fantastic job as the character.
West recently did an interview, where he was quoted as saying, "Ben Affleck will be very good. He's a fine actor and he'll bring something fresh, which is what you have to do."
We cannot wait to see what Ben Affleck brings to the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman and we are also looking forward to seeing Gal Gadot as Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone aka Cyborg, and Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, as well as the return of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit the big screen on March 25, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
