A new Caped Crusader has been found!

Actor Ben Affleck will take over the role of Batman, making him the eighth actor to play the superhero.

Affleck will begin his stint as Batman,  in the upcoming untitled Batman-Superman feature for Warner Bros., the studio announced Thursday.

The forthcoming Batman-Superman film will be directed by Man of Steel‘s Zack Snyder. The Batman-Superman feature will open worldwide on July 17, 2015, with Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, and Amy Adams  reprising their respective roles.

“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.”
