It was announced back in August that Affleck had been tapped to play Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman, picking up the torch from Christian Bale. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburn and Diane Lane will reprise their Man of Steel roles and Jesse Eisenberg will take on the ultimate villain role of Lex Luther.
