Even though Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got walloped with negative reviews, Ben Affleck's debut as The Dark Knight was received favorably by critics and fans alike. Moviegoers are looking forward to seeing Affleck's Batman in future films in the DC cinematic universe. That'll come in August, when he makes a small but pivotal appearance in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. After that, we'll see him assemble the Justice League and eventually star in his own solo film.
But for those of you that can't wait that long, check out this fan-made trailer of Affleck's upcoming action thriller The Accountant, re-cut to look like a Batman film.
Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
The cast features Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow. The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor, written By Bill Dubuque, and produced By Mark Williams and Lynette Howell. The executive producers are Gavin O'Connor, Jamie Patricof, and Marty Ewing.
The Accountant will land in theaters on October 14th.
