Ben found himself in court last week. here's the scoop
At Dark Horizons they reported an 'amusing' story about Ben doing Batman... "Batman 5: Ben Affleck is apparently close to signing onboard the fifth Batman project for an estimated $15 million, though he has set a rather strange condition. A WB source revealed to the The Sunday Mirror that "Ben has told studio executives he'd love to be the fourth Batman, but he really wants Gwyneth to play Catwoman alongside him...Ben thinks they would have brilliant on-screen chemistry together, and has promised he will work on her to get her on board". Paltrow is apparently a huge fan of Michelle Pfieffer's version of the role in 1992's "Batman Returns" (who isn't), and helping to cement the possibility is that she and Affleck, whose highly reported relationship ended around a year ago, appear to be becoming a hot item again. Can it be pulled off? Unsure. Personally I can see Affleck as the Bat, but Paltrow as Catwoman just doesn't click - she just doesn't convey that "unsure if she is good or bad" sense the character needs and which Michelle did so well. Thanks to 'Sonic'."
Well the internet was a buzzing today with news about Ben doing Batman. A few days ago Ben posted on his official board "There is also no truth (that I know of) to any Batman/Spiderman/Superman rumors. They may have thrown my name around (as happens a lot and means very little) as "someone who MIGHT be interesting" but none of those projects are even close to getting into production (again, as far as I know.) " So I wouldn't believe the hype. But if you are still interested in some of the stories I found here they are Article #1 and Article #2

Ben went by his official board and posted about the new name of his movie. It was formally Reindeer Games.
Dark Horizons reported, " Ben Affleck Untitled Project (aka. Reindeer Games): The lead choice for a new title has been discovered by a DH scooper. A marketing study was conducted for the film's trailer at Tower Records recently, with the title "The Inside Man" in use. People in attendance were asked what they thought of the name and whether it fit the film (reaction seemed positive). Thanks to 'Wes'. "
Dark Horizonsalso reported about The Cinderella Man, "Affleck is in the news again today. The BBC reports the Oscar winning actor is now in the process of getting in shape to star as a boxer in the film "Cinderella Man". Based on a true story and set around the time of the Great Depression, the film follows a young man who "enters the ring out of desperation to feed his family" and becomes a hero along the way. Miramax want Billy Bob Thornton to direct and possibly co-star in it, marking the second time the pair would've worked together (Affleck had a cameo role in Thronton's family drama "Daddy and Them" due out in Christmas). Thornton is currently wrapping up filming on the Matt Damon drama "All the Pretty Horses".
Ben is being considered for another movie based on the book,"The Dreyfus Affair." Read that story here.
