Ben Affleck Says Justice League Is a Big Change Tonally


Ben Affleck who plays Batman in Justice League, recently spoke with Geek Magazine on his character and the tone of the film being lighter and having humor due to the different Justice League members personality and how it come together as a team.

“Justice League is a big change tonally because you now have the personalities of all these different characters coming together, and it gives you a chance to infuse a lot of humor into the scenes,” the actor confirms, while promising a much lighter tone. “For Bruce, he’s having to open up and play well with others because he knows he needs them, so while he doesn’t lose sight of how serious the threat is, he’s humanized by the Flash’s earnestness, Diana’s warmth, even Aquaman’s needling.

The goal of the team is intense — they have to save the world, after all — but the humor that comes into it from all of these characters trying to work together, some of them with more experience, some with essentially none, results in a lot of laughter and playful banter that I believe audiences will really enjoy.”

As confirmed by Chris Terrio prior to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being released in March 2016, Justice League was always meant to have a lighter tone:

“I expect Justice League will be tonally not quite as dark as Batman v Superman. From that point of view, I felt compelled to go back and try to lift us and myself into a different tonal place because I think when you write a darker film, sometimes you want to redeem it all a bit.”
