Hollywood has a new Batman.

According to Variety, the actor signed on to play the roll in an upcoming Batman-Superman feature.

"Man of Steel" actors Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane are reprising their roles with Zack Snyder on board to direct.

The announcement from Warner Bros. officially squashes rumors of the return of Christian Bale to reprise the role. Bale played Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Gotham's Dark Knight, in three films that rebooted the superhero franchise.

Affleck's last venture into the superhero genre was his starring role in "Daredevil" that disappointed at the box office.

The new Superman-Batman feature has a tentative release date of July 17, 2015.,
