Clark Kent will come face to face with Bruce Wayne for the first time in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and the differences will be quite pronounced. BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill recently sat down for an interview with Studio Cine Live (via Batman-News) where they spilled a few details about their secret identities and how they'll differ from previous film incarnations.

Ben Affleck on billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne:

Usually, the films show Batman starting off, or in the prime of his career. Here, you’re dealing with an older version, a guy at the end of his journey. He’ll find meaning in his own life during his conflict with Superman. He really thinks Superman is an existential menace, and he believes destroying him will be his legacy. We also play a bit more with the billionaire playboy side of the character. He lives that life at full tilt. He courts many women, owns many cars, and parties a lot. He does that as a way to fill the void in his soul. Moreover, past incarnations dealt with a straightforward search for justice. This time, Batman’s reasoning is clouded by frustration, bitterness and anger.

Henry Cavill on delicate flower Clark Kent:

Comparisons with Christopher Reeve’s clumsy Clark Kent are inevitable. My Clark Kent is trying to be as small and invisible as possible. If you’re awkward and spilling things constantly, people are going to notice you, and that’s not the best way to go unseen. You have to admit, it’s not a remarkable disguise, just a pair of glasses. He’d like to think that no one will believe he could be Superman. How could such a delicate flower be a living god? Preposterous.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

After now seeing doomsday I now think the part where Batman escapes the heat blast is from Doomsday not superman as it looks bigger than the heat vision shoes would normally show. Although not a massive fan of the first, it's a little boring - this does look better and I think Afleck is gonna come through this with flying colours

Exciting to see Affleck portray the billionaire side of Bruce a bit more than we have seen in past films (and considering his problems in his personal life, it shouldn't be so difficult to make the transistion). But I also do hope that we get to see more of Bruce's detective skills in this as well.
