Earlier today, Avengers director Joss Whedon tweeted, "Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin -- just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe -- I'm in."
Kind words from a man whose Avengers sequel will be going up against Batman for a second time for the yearly box office crown. In 2012, The Avengers finished as the highest grossing movie at the domestic box office with $623 million, while The Dark Knight Rises finished in second place with $448 million.
In summer of 2015, the Avengers and Batman will once again square off, as The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is scheduled to be released on May 1, while Batman Vs. Superman will follow on July 17.
