Warner Bros. CEO: Ben Affleck is "Perfect" as "Tired and Weary" Batman
Does this make Ben Affleck as Batman make more sense?
According to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the version of Batman that will appeared in the Man of Steel sequel will be “kind of tired and weary and been doing it for a while.” On a call, he also said that Affleck “is perfect for this vision” and that he “thinks it’s going to be huge.”
We also know that the new Batman will be “in [his] late 30s or around the 40 mark” as well as “established and rugged.” …Is this all a round-about way of saying he’s going to have a drinking problem? The film already teased a connection to Frank Miller’s legendary The Dark Knight Returns storyline, which sees an aging Bruce Wayne taking on rising crime in Gotham, and of course, Superman.
The film is expected to be released on July 17, 2015.
