In comparing Henry Cavill to Ben Affleck, they kind of look alike to some small degree, maybe it’s just me, but at least the chins are similar. Affleck is slightly more round in the face, but both can certainly grow beautiful beards.

Looking alike is somewhat important to their characters as at various times over the years, they’ve swapped roles. Clark dons the cowl and vice versa. As I doubt the Superman vs. Batman movie will be a true “versus” movie, they’ll fight because they don’t understand each other, and then become uneasy friends as they have to face a mutual villain, it should all work out. Until we see Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, I’m going to hold my reservations. He’s a good actor, a better director and Affleck has already played Superman in “Hollywoodland.” (Which is a wonderful movie and I highly recommend it.)
