While the internet may not be convinced that Ben Affleck will make for a good Batman, Warner Brothers studio executives sure seem to think so.
Warner Brothers CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed during a recent discussion with investors at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference. The executive stated that Affleck’s Batman will be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile.”
“Ben is perfect for the vision Zack [Synder] 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,” he said.
Tsujihara teased that Affleck will portray Batman as “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while.”
He added: “We think it’s going to be huge. We think it’s the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman.”
The Man of Steel sequel, tipped to be called Batman vs Superman, is slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015. In the meantime, you can check out these pics of Ben Affleck gassing up his classic Chevy Chevelle yesterday (September 12, 2013) in Brentwood, California.
