Wouldn’t it have been easier to cast Mark Wahlberg as the new Batman? Oh ya, there is that height issue, so I can see why producers opted for Ben. The dude was showing off his new Batman muscles while out & about with his daughters Violet and Seraphina in Brentwood.
Aside from his upcoming ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ which will hit theaters sometime in 2016, Ben is making ends meet with his latest film ‘Gone Girl’. The film’s production budget was around $61 million and has already raked in over $200 million at the box office.
With a headline like that, there’s really no need for filler. These two were seen running errands in Brentwood yesterday afternoon.
We should mention that Jennifer Garner has repeatedly denied pregnancy rumors seeing how there’s been plenty of speculation as of late. Another child at 42?! Come on! That would definitely be a mistake. These two will be nearly 65 before that kid graduates high school!
You’d think Ben Affleck’s stylist would hook him up with a Moncler puffer, but I guess the guy wants to maintain an image that regular people can somewhat relate to, especially considering his upcoming Batman role. Then again, wouldn’t billionaire Bruce Wayne be a Moncler-type of guy? I guess that’s debatable.
Anyway, these photos were snapped earlier this afternoon as Ben was spotted with Jennifer Garner & daughter Seraphina as the family ran errands in Brentwood. As always, both Ben & Jennifer looked super annoyed at the snapping papz.

Richie Furst (Timberlake) is a Princeton student who is cheated out of his tuition money by playing online poker. When he learns that the site is hosted from a remote island location, he goes to confront the site’s corrupt owner, Ivan Block (Affleck), but is lured into becoming Ivan’s protégé and right-hand man. Their relationship starts to reach a boiling point all while an FBI agent Zbysko, tries to use Richie to bring Ivan down. [Wiki]
Believe it or not, Ben Affleck is up to more than dodging petitions to recast Batman: he’s up to no good as a lothario gambling Mafioso in Costa Rica who lures a broke Princeton graduate student played by Justin Timberlake into an international gambling ring. Needless to say, it doesn’t pan out the way he expected.

There’s going to be endless fanboy whining and debate over this casting choice until the movie actually comes out, so let’s just spit it out and get it over with: Ben Affleck will be playing the new Batman in the upcoming Christopher Nolan Man of Steel sequel in which Superman and Batman share the screen together for the first time.
Director Zack Snyder released the following statement when news of Affleck’s casting had officially been reported:
“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”
So the debate begins: Is Affleck the right choice? Is he too intellectual? Too lean and lanky? Too many Oscars under his belt? Oh, and does anyone remember Daredevil?
The A-list Hollywood couple were seen enjoying their Sunday afternoon with the kids, son Samuel & daughter Violet, at the farmers market in Pacific Palisades.
Both have big films hitting theaters in the final months of the year with Ben starring in the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced ‘Runner, Runner‘ (also includes Justin Timberlake & Gemma Arterton) and Jennifer Garner will attempt to make a dash for an Oscar in anxiously awaited ‘Dallas Buyers Club‘ starring a malnourished Matthew McConaughey.
