The project was announced at Comic-Con, with speculation running wild over who will take over for Christian Bale. Names such as Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin had been rumored for week

But it looks like Affleck - who will also play the lead in Gone Girl and who was panned for his performance as a superhero in Daredevil - has swooped in and taken the role in a blockbuster that will open in July 2015.
