Affleck’s turn as the Caped Crusader has been the most talked about DC casting of the past five years. Many people wondering why it was necessary for them to reboot Batman four years after Christian Bale finished off the Dark Knight trilogy.
But Zac Synder’s Batman v Superman was probably the worst received comic book movie in the last few years. And Affleck’s sombre expression during the press tour became a meme all over the internet.
But Ben Affleck’s Batman is here to stay as he’s starring in the new Justice League movie and the Batman reboot so Affleck finally commented…
When entertainment journalist, Kevin McCarthy says he’s seen Batman V Superman four times, Affleck states
“You’ve seen it more than I have, it was the biggest hit of my career and then it had so much editorial negativity,” he said. ” it was judged not necessarily on execution so much as on its tone. People seemed to want to have a lighter tone to the movie, and I thought that was interesting. Tone is not a qualitative thing. It’s subjective, right? Some tones resonate with me that might not with you. And the tone of the movie was really parallel to the Frank Miller book [The Dark Knight Returns], which I liked and thought was great. I’m glad that so many people went and so many people liked the movie.”
Hopefully ,he’s learnt from his mistakes and we’ll get a better Batman than the one we’ve already seen.
He can’t be worse than Clooney
