Ben Affleck spoke with Cineplex on his new film Live By Night and discussed how he felt the difference between his Batman and those portrayed in the past.
“It’s different in terms of tone and, obviously, just a different actor,” Affleck says of his Caped Crusader. “I think the most profound difference is that I’m playing the part at an older age than those guys were when they played it, and it’s about a guy who’s had a long life of this experience, rather than someone who’s just setting out on the journey to become this guy. He’s older and wiser, I guess. And he was pretty pissed off in Batman v Superman, but now it’s not about finding revenge in Justice League, it’s about protecting the Earth. So the feel is different.”
The Batman is now in the scripting and in the casting stage and has no release date.
