Ben Affleck's Batman will be "tired, and kind of weary and seasoned"
At a conference yesterday (no, not this one but it was held in the same building) Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara was bragging about the company's new plans with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, but he also made some comments about Ben Affleck as Batman in the still untitled sequel to MAN OF STEEL.
THR reports that Tsujihara thinks Ben Affleck is "perfect" for the part and said the character will be "tired, and kind of weary and seasoned," which is similar to how he was described when the announcement was first made about Affleck as the new Batman. He goes on to say that Ben Affleck will fit in very well with what returning director Zack Snyder has planned for the character:
"Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character. The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character."
"Passionate response" is certainly one way of putting it. Kevin Tsujihara also says there are more DC superhero related announcements that will be made in the upcoming month for video games, consumer products, television and film. Of course the one I care about the most will be the film announcements, and I wonder if it'll be casting news for BATMAN/SUPERMAN or maybe something brand new. Any guesses?
The BATMAN/SUPERMAN film is scheduled to be in theaters on July 17th, 2015.
