This week, EW has included a feature story on the highly anticipated forthcoming DC movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that includes plenty of quotable material from Ben Affleck, who’s playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in case you haven’t heard. EW has also revealed the first “official” images from the film that show the clash between the two titular characters.
From the mouth of Affleck:
Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet, we accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations. He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it… He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it, but this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.
Affleck, perhaps in preeminent attack, also had something to say about his heavily panned Daredevil movie:
Daredevil didn’t work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite. That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of ‘Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.’
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 25, 2016.
