Batman Vs Superman new Batman differences & more dished out by Ben Affleck. Recently, the famous Playboy magazine got to talk it up with the new Batman star, Ben Affleck, and he revealed some new intel for the big “Batman vs. Superman” role, and how it will differ from Christian Bale’s version of Batman,and more.
Like other reports have stated, Ben’s version of Batman will be much older and wiser,especially when compared to the maturity level of Henry Cavill’s Superman character. To kick things off, Ben revealed that he expected all the backlash from fans over his recent casting, stating, “I expected that reaction. Warner Bros. told me, “You should know what you’re getting into.” They showed me the reactions to other folks who had been cast in these roles. They said this is how it tends to play out initially.”
From there, Ben explained his decision of accepting the role, because he certainly wasn’t down with it at first, stating, “When they asked if I would be Batman, I told them I don’t see myself in the role and I was going to have to beg off. They said I’d fit well into how they were going to approach the character and asked me to look at what the writer-director, Zack Snyder, was doing.
The stuff was incredible. It was a unique take on Batman that was still consistent with the mythology. It made me excited. All of a sudden I had a reading of the character. When people see it, it will make more sense than it does now or even than it did to me initially.”
To cap it off, Ben explained how his version of Batman will greatly differ from previous Batmans, particularly the latest Christian Bale Batman. He said, “I don’t want to give away too much, but the idea for the new Batman is to redefine him in a way that doesn’t compete with the Bale and Chris Nolan Batman, but still exists within the Batman canon. It will be an older and wiser version, particularly as he relates to Henry Cavill’s Superman character.”
“Batman Vs. Superman” is due to show up in theaters on July 17th, 2015.
