As everyone now knows, Ben Affleck has been cast in the upcoming superhero movie thought to be titled Batman vs Superman. Affleck is set to play Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, which will showcase both heroes and is set to be released in July 2015. There's quite a while to wait until the release of the film so until then, let's take a look back at Ben Affleck's career and the path that brought him to the role of Batman.

Ben Affleck has been a famous actor since the mid-90s. Now, at 41, he has a very prestigious and respectable career, having starred in many acclaimed movies and directed his fair share too. Affleck began his career at a young age as a child actor, on various children's series such as The Voyage of the Mimi, Kidsworld and a few made-for-TV movies. His big break as an actor came in 1997, when he starred in Good Will Hunting, a film he also wrote with long-time friend Matt Damon. Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the movie.

In 1998 he went on to star alongside Bruce Willis in disaster movie Armageddon, a box-office smash which earned approximately $553 million. This film had Affleck working with Michael Bay, which later led to working with the director again on Pearl Harbour in 2001. This World War Two drama film helped Affleck on his path to stardom, as it became a favorite for fans of epic war movies, earning millions despite negative critical reviews. Also in 1998, Affleck had a supporting role in Shakespeare in Love, a re-imagined tale of the bard's life. These roles contributed to his gain in international exposure.

Before achieving international stardom in the late 90s, Affleck acted in a number of cult films like 1995's Mallrats and 1997's Chasing Amy. These films were the first in his working relationship with director Kevin Smith. His collaboration with Kevin Smith continued on, as Affleck has appeared in many of Smith's films including religious satire Dogma (1999), romantic comedy Jersey Girl (2004) and 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

The 2000s saw Affleck act in some good films, and make some unfortunate role choices. 2003 saw Affleck star in his first superhero role in Daredevil. Later that year came Gigli - where Affleck starred opposite then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez - which was not well-received. Other ill-fated roles included Smokin' Aces (2007), while he had some success with 2006's Hollywoodland. (2009)

With 2007 came a break in Affleck's acting roles as he stepped behind the camera for the first time with Gone Baby Gone. He co-wrote the film, which received praise across the board. His next film was He's Just Not That Into You (2009), an ensemble romantic comedy that garnered $165 million internationally. In 2010 he had a role in The Town, another film Affleck both directed and co-wrote. His second effort as a director was well-received and that year also saw Affleck in comedy Extract and political thriller State of Play.

2012 was the year where Affleck truly began to make his mark as a director with Argo. This acclaimed dramatic film saw Affleck achieve recognition for both his directorial talents and acting skills. His latest film was 2013's To the Wonder, a romantic art-house film also starring Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem.

Ben Affleck has had a colourful and successful career as an actor, screen writer and director. Like any actor, there have been some pitfalls along the way but having displayed his abilities as a director, who knows what the future holds.
