Light the Ben signal


Film fans may have only just got over last week's announcement that Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in a follow-up to Superman film Man Of Steel, but the latest news is that he may also appear in other movies as the superhero.

According to industry website The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck's involvement is the result of months of discussions between the Oscar-winner, the Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and the film's producer, Christopher Nolan, who also directed the most recent Batman films starring Christian Bale.

During these talks, which reportedly even "many Warners [Bros] executives [were] unaware of" Affleck signed "for multiple movies, should sequels continue to proliferate."
