While 'Batman vs. Superman' has already started filming some very early scenes, we have yet to see Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, or, more importantly, as Batman. But, a new report says that we might already have a look at what Affleck's Batman costume will look like in the upcoming film.

‘Beware the Batman’ Pulled From Cartoon Network’s Lineup?

It's been a tough road for DC animation on TV since its most successful incarnations with the Bruce Timm-Paul Dini era, and even the madcap 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold,' but it seems Cartoon Network may have suffered another casualty. Following similar moves to pull 'Young Justice' and 'Green Lantern: The Animated Series,' CG Dark Knight series 'Beware the Batman' has been unceremoniously pulled from the lineup.

Read the Script For the Planned ‘Justice League’ Movie!

If you're one of the people who think Batfleck is a bad thing (for the record, we disagree), just remember to tell yourself, it could've been worse. Back in 2007, pre-production began on a 'Justice League' movie that would've cast D.J. Cotrona as Superman, rapper Common as Green Lantern and Armie Hammer as Batman, with Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy never happening.

The film never happened, for various reasons, but now if you're curious what a 'Justice League' movie could've looked like, you can read the script for the movie right now. (Warning: you'll have a newfound appreciation of 'Avengers,' the 'Dark Knight' and 'Man of Steel' after reading this.)

Just minutes after the debut of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' Warner Bros. has announced the Batman franchise will return to TV with 'Gotham,' a new FOX drama with Commissioner Gordon at its center.

‘Man of Steel 2′ Almost Cast Josh Brolin as Batman

While everyone is still debating whether or not Ben Affleck will make a good Batman in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2,' which will feature a "Batman vs. Superman" element, we can tell you who was almost cast: Josh Brolin, who confirms that he was considered for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming sequel. Obviously, it didn't work out, but Brolin doesn't have any hard feelings about it.

Here’s Who Twitter Thinks Should Play Batman Instead of Ben Affleck

Wow, people are upset that Ben Affleck is going to be the next Batman. Like, really upset. It's almost like this somehow simultaneously affects them personally (it doesn't), and they have nothing else in their lives to worry about (we're jealous). They may be upset about it, but at least some folks have a sense of humor about it. Here are some choice tweets on the subject.

UPDATE: Additional speculation suggests that 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston may also be up for the role. Between these two actors, which would you rather see get the part?

As eagle-eyed fans the world over will tell you, 'Man of Steel' contained numerous references to LexCorp, the company run by iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor. Naturally, tongues started wagging and everyone immediately assumed that the bald baddie would play a major role in the inevitable sequel. And then the fantasy casting began.

And now, Mark Strong has hinted that the role may be his.

‘Man of Steel 2′ Seeking Older Batman, Casting Rumors Begin

It was announced at Comic-Con 2013 that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' will feature a Batman vs. Superman fight in the vein of Frank Miller's graphic novel 'The Dark Knight Returns,' so the big question is, of course, who will play Batman? The script for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel 2' is still being written, so it's a bit early for Warner Bros. to start meeting with prospective actors for the role, but sources claim they have a few ideas.
