While doing press for his new film, GONE GIRL, here's what Ben Affleck had to say about what influenced the depiction and characterization of Batman in BATMAN v SUPERMAN (via MTV)...
"I think if youíre smart, you steal from the best."
"I do think Zack was heavily influenced by [THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS]. Everyoneís influenced by that. Itís the seminal work. I donít think thereís any [Batman movies] that have been made without drawing from that book because itís so good."
