When The Dark Knight Trilogy ended, and the DCEU began, many were wondering who would play Batman. When Ben Affleck was revealed…the reaction was mixed. But, he won them over in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, even if the didn’t win over everyone. Despite Affleck’s great performance, Batman was called “too dark”, even for him. So, for Justice League, fans can expect a bit lighter of a Batman, though he will still be Batman.
Ben Affleck spoke to this during a press talk in London while promoting the film, he noted:
“Well, you make a really interesting point, that Batman, who is by nature, not necessarily anti-social but a loner,” Affleck said. “In this movie he is thrust into the role of having to not only work with people but bring them together and convince them to come in and try to be, some kind of gel with Wonder Woman to hold all that community effort together, and that was a really good thing to play for me.”
He goes on:
“And it also does take us to a more traditional version of Batman in the Justice League comics, and his role with the Justice League versus the less sort of typical version seen in Batman V Superman where he was blinded by rage and wanted to take on Superman, so that was a lot of fun for me.”
We’ll have to see how it all falls out when Justice League arrives November 17th.
