Title For Ben Affleck's Batman Film Revealed

The title of the new Batman film has been announced by Warner Bros which has also confirmed that filming has begun.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice sees Henry Cavill reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman and Ben Affleck play Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The studio said the action film, directed by Zack Snyder, will also star Israel-born actress Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman; Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luther; Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Bruce Wayne's loyal guardian; and Holly Hunter in a newly created role.

Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will return from 2013's Man of Steel to appear in the upcoming film.

Last week Snyder revealed a photo of what Affleck's Batman will look like.

The black and white photo, showing Affleck standing next to the Batmobile, took the internet by storm. Many fans of the superhero have been worried about the casting choice for the Caped Crusader.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, with shooting locations in Africa and the South Pacific, is set for release in May 2016.
