Henry Cavill on Ben Affleck as Batman
In a few more months Zack Snyder will officially be starting production on Warner Bros' Batman Vs. Superman film. There's no solid story information on the film, but it's looking like Henry Cavill's Superman will be facing off against Ben Affleck's Batman. In a recent interview with Total Film, Cavill talked about Affleck's casting and explained why he thinks Affleck is good for the role.
"I'm sure he'll be fantastic, above all else, and as a filmmaker he's got his own style, you know, he's not copying anyone else. And he's also sort of been tenacious in his career. He's had ups followed by downs and now he's very up again and I think that requires and shows a very special strength of character, and it's something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a strength of character. They require a dedication to the work and a belief in oneself and Ben has that, clearly."
I'm convinced that Affleck is going to be awesome as Batman, and I'm excited to see what he ends up doing with the character and how he makes it his own. The movie is set to be released on July 17th, 2015.
