It's a wrap!!! Not so fast my friend! Zack Snyder recently confirmed that Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice had officially finished filming. However, it is not unusual for big budget movies like this one to shoot extra scenes while the movie is in the post production phase. That just might be the case here as Warner Bros are looking to cast a young Ben Affleck according Oneheadlightink.

Midthunder Casting is conducting a talent search for a Warner Brothers feature film which will heavily feature 10 -AND- 12 year old, Caucasian boys (SAG principal roles – to portray a young BEN AFFLECK) who have extensive WUSHU, KUNG FU, or PENTAK SILAT training and experience.
They will consider high level (state – world champion) competitors in all martial arts forms. Those qualified and interested must send photos and video clips of fighting skills, training and competitions, as well as contact info to:

We know that there is a Bruce Wayne flash back scene Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice; so, it is highly possible that they are looking to add additional flash back scene's of Bruce Wayne when he was a kid. However, the mandatory martial arts training does not sound like a young Bruce Wayne. It actually sounds more like Batman's son, Damian Wayne.

Bruce Wayne had a son, Damian Wayne, with Talia al Ghul the daughter of one of Batman's most dangerous villains Ra's al Ghul . Obviously, this kid has some conflicting but strong blood lines running through his veins which has made for a really good character in the comics. At a very young age Damian is one of the most skilled fighters in the Batman universe which makes the casting call for a young Ben Affleck compelling since this Mini-BatFleck has to be highly skilled in martial arts. What could make a Damian Wayne casting even more interesting is that he eventually becomes Robin.

That's right in the comic books Damian Wayne is the fifth Robin to fight along side Batman. This theory actually makes a lot of sense because it has been confirmed that Ben Affleck will be playing a seasoned Batman that has been around for quite some time. This theory also opens up the possibility of Nightwing, Red Robin and Red Hood to make appearances in this cinematic universe since they all were Robin previously and are regulars in the New 52 Batman which is the latest comic book re-boot of Batman.

Hey here's a thought maybe they are casting for the Batman solo movie and not for [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870). What do you think? Please share your thoughts below.


Who is WB/DC casting for? A young Bruce Wayne or Damian Wayne aka Robin?
