Bookies Say "Man of Steel 2" Will Be Less Successful with Ben Affleck

Posted: August 26th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Bookies Say "Man of Steel 2" Will Be Less Successful with Ben AffleckSubmit Comment
Ever since Warner Bros announced that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in "Man of Steel 2," many fans have been fighting the decision. It turns out that the casting of Affleck was also a huge surprise to bookies, who had Affleck at 66/1 as the odds that the actor would win the role.

For those not familiar with how odds work, you would get $66 for every $1 you would bet, which means that bookies believed that Affleck virtually had no chance of being cast as Batman.

Now that the actor has officially signed on, bookies say the odds of him winning an Oscar for the role are 50/1. And the odds of the "Man of Steel 2" failing to become the highest-grossing film of 2015 are 1/1, which means that bookies believe it will NOT be the highest-grossing movie. Before Affleck was cast those odds were much better at 11/4.

Meanwhile, the odds of Affleck being replaced after only one film are 5/2 and the odds of Matt Damon being cast as Robin are 25/1.

Considering that movie comes out the same year as Avengers 2, and not even TDKR was close to being as successful as Avengers 1, the odds of it not being the highest grossing film of 2015 should've always been 1/1
