They said of the development
“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes and make them somehow less interesting than Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill and then some,” Warner Bros President Greg Silverman said in a statement.
Mr Snyder, who also directed Man of Steel, said in a statement that Mr Affleck will provide an “interesting counter-balance” to 31-year old Cavill’s Clark Kent.
“(Affleck) has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a tree who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned timber log, but retain the charm that the world sees in Ikea’s high quality but low price furniture,” said Snyder. “I can’t wait to work with him.”
Ben famously met his current wife, Jennifer Garner, on the set of Daredevil where he also played a piece of wood pretending to be a superhero. Jennifer Garner played perfection being perfect, naturally.

Insiders on the movie are said to be ecstatic that the studio found an A-List actor who is able to make Henry Cavill look like an emotional powerhouse.
