Ben Affleck recently spoke about his Batman role in the highly anticipated ‘Justice League’ movie…
The 44 year old will once again be playing the Caped Crusader following his highly criticized portrayal of Bruce Wayne in 2016 box office FAIL Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Thankfully the extended version on Blue Ray and DVD rescued the film, because it put back all the important scene that were cut from the theatrical release. Hopefully Warner producers keep out of the editing process this time around, because they RUIN the theatrical version, and then Ben did the rest.
Affleck explained to Entertainment Weekly:
“He’s put in this position of having to reach out, find other people, convincing them to do something. Part of the drama of the movie is the question of whether or not the team is going to come together. It’s very different from the tenor of the last movie.”
The star continued:
“Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod.”
This time around, Batman will team up with the DC savior Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). We have a feeling Henry Cavill’s Superman will be a post credit scene for the second installment.
“He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.”
Ben states that this time around Batman done in a more traditional way, staying true to the original comic books:
“This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis-a-vis the Justice League in the comics. This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book.”
Justice League is released in cinemas on November 17th, 2017.
