While some of the outrage over Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman in Man Of Steel 2, or Batman Vs Superman, seems to have settled down, a Warner Bros chief has spoken out about how perfectly Affleck fits Zack Snyder’s vision of a ‘seasoned’ Dark Knight.
Deadline reports that this Bruce Wayne is “kind of tired and weary and seasoned, and been doing it for a while,” revealed Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara. “[Affleck] is perfect for the vision… We think it’s going to be huge.”
Since the announcement about Affleck was made we’ve seen a range of reactions but he’s consistently delivered better and better performances in films like Argo, To The Wonder, Hollywoodland and The Town, and he certainly has the chops to play a Batman who’s “been doing it for a while.”
Man Of Steel 2 will be released on 17 July 2015. You can pre-order Man Of Steel on Blu-ray for £16.75 at Amazon.co.uk.
