Check out a few excerpts from a new BvS interview with Ben Affleck from NEWYORKTIMES.COM...

On how Batman/Bruce Wayne is portrayed in BvS...

“[Bruce Wayne's] living in this gray zone. He’s more broken, not slick. He’s filling the hole in his soul with these increasingly morally questionable nighttime excursions — fighting crime as well as by being this playboy. You wonder, is this healthy?”

On directing a solo Batman movie in the future…

“If there comes a point that I want to do BATMAN, and there’s a script and it works, then I’ll do it.”

I don’t know Ben Affleck personally, but I’ve always liked him -- I've yet to understand why this guy gets so much sh*t. I have been down with the casting of him as Batman from the get-go and I’ve LONG been on record saying I wanted him to direct a Batman film. Hell, I thought he’d make a great young Batman back in the late 90s when an adaptaion of YEAR ONE was in development (go check the BOF archives if you don’t believe me). Looking forward to meeting this dude. ANYWAY...

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The film opens nationwide in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters on March 25, 2016, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
