Shut down the internet for the night, folks. It doesn’t get much bigger than this.

According to Variety, Ben Affleck will portray Batman in the upcoming ‘Superman & Batman‘ film to be released by Warner Bros in 2015. This is not a joke or a prank. Daredevil is the new Batman.

“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” WB president Greg Silverman said in a statement.

Affleck is the eighth actor to wear the cowl. He will face off in the film against Henry Cavill’s Superman, who first appeared in this summer’s Man Of Steel. Zach Snyder, who just so happened to direct Steel, is also on board for the new film.

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne,” Snyder said in a statement. “I can’t wait to work with him.”
