    One fan seems to be extremely excited for the Man of Steel sequel and Ben Affleck's debut as the Caped Crusader.

    YouTube user solyentbrak1 posted a highly produced mock-trailer to give viewers a taste of what the much-anticipated sequel might look like when it is released in 2015.

    This trailer comes on the heels of the massive reaction to Ben Affleck's casting as Batman, which included a Change.org petition calling for Affleck's role to be re-cast to "deliver to the fans what they want."

    The director of the two-minute clip said in his description that he had started making the teaser with another actor featured as Batman, but that he is warming to Affleck for the role.

    In addition to Affleck, Bryan Cranston is revealed as Lex Luthor and Henry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent/Superman.

    Most of the trailer is quick clips, including Affleck in previous roles and as the superhero Daredevil, Cranston from Breaking Bad and Cavill in his Superman suit. Pieces from composer Hans Zimmer set the dramatic tone for teaser.

    The fan's version is proving to be popular: as of Tuesday afternoon, it has garnered nearly 250,000 views.

    Production on the sequel, which has no official title yet, is scheduled to kick off next year and the film is due in theaters July 17, 2015. Zack Snyder is returning to direct the follow-up to his first Superman flick, starring Henry Cavill as the titular superhero, which has made more than $649 million worldwide.
