As most everyone knows, billionaire Bruce Wayne has an alter ego. But as was announced late Thursday, it's something of a surprise: Ben Affleck will play Batman in an upcoming sequel to this summer's hit Man of Steel.
For the first time, too, the Caped Crusader will join forces with Superman, again to be played by British actor Henry Cavill, 31, in the as-yet-untitled movie to be directed by Man of Steel's Zack Snyder.
The mash-up will begin production next year and be released July 17, 2015, reports EW.com. Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (as Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent) have also been announced to return.

It's a bird, it's a plane ... it's Superman's kryptonite, Kaley Cuoco!
Days after a hike through the hills followed by a sushi stop-off, Henry Cavill, 30, and The Big Bang Theory actress, 27, snuck in a little PDA while getting groceries in Los Angeles.
The actor – true to Man of Steel's signature colors in a red tee and jeans – kept a good grip on his real-life Lois Lane, who stayed well shaded in a brown fedora, matching sunglasses and a leopard-print top.

You don't become Superman overnight.
"It's a very, very long and involved process," Henry Cavill told PEOPLE at Monday's Man of Steel premiere in New York – the movie opened nationwide Friday – about his exhausting physical transformation from human to superhuman.
It went in stages. And all of them were painful.
"Five months before shooting there was varying stuff which ended up being mass building and then leaning down," said the actor, 30. "Throughout the shoot it was just waking up and making sure I got an hour in [of exercise] before I went to work."
