Ben Affleck is opening up about what fans can expect from his incarnation of Batman in the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The star faced tons of backlash after fans learned he would be the next man to don the Batsuit, and it turns out, even he wasn’t sure about whether or not he was the best man for the role.
Read what Ben told Empire about his role, including how this Batman differs from any Batman we’ve seen, via Variety:
“Then [director Zack Snyder] pitched me his concept for this older, more broken, kind of f—ed up Batman,” Affleck told Empire Magazine. “It was something we haven’t seen. We have seen that Batman is willing to cross the line to protect people. That vigilantism has been a part of his character all along, and we are tapping into that mentality when faced by something as potentially as deadly as Superman.”
You can read more from Ben’s interview with Empire when the new issue hits newsstands tomorrow.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters Mar. 25 2016.
