Comic book movie casting announcements have become big game sport amongst the studios, with a tense rivalry brewing between Marvel Studios and DC Comics that mirrors their old print days in the 60s, 70s and 80s. The biggest news of the year was dropped last week, when Warner Bros. and DC whispered that Ben Affleck is going to be Batman in their highly anticipated untitled Man of Steel 2 sequel, which continues to be known in fanboy circles as Batman Vs. Superman. They quietly slipped a press release into the wild at exactly 6:15 pm, after most everyone had gone home for the night. Within in minutes, it blew up into a firestorm of controversy.

Warner Bros. and DC's announcement was strategically placed later in the evening so that word of mouth could evolve and morph into a mushroom cloud of speculation and petitions. It was also released on that particular Thursday night in somewhat of a rush, to counter and sink the day's previous announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy was in talks with Bradley Cooper for Rocket Raccoon. Marvel had also confirmed through various sources that Elizabeth Olsen was going to be their Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron that same morning. Neither has officially signed yet, and their big moment was pretty much swept to the side for the time being.
