Ben Affleck Says Justice League Batman is “Much More Traditional”
With the Justice League premiere only a few months from now, Ben Affleck spoke in a recent interview about how different his character will be in the new movie, as compared to Batman v Superman. According to Affleck, the fans will enjoy this more “traditional” Batman over the previous one. He also says that Justice League will focus more on the emotions surrounding the team of heroes coming together and that fans can expect a Batman who is a lot more like the comic book version that they know and love.
“BvS departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod. He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.
This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics. This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book. Not that it’s average. I think it’s a really cool story. Actually, it’s sort of a story about multilateralism. It’s not a bad theme to have!”
