Warner CEO confirms “tired and weary” Ben Affleck Batman


So we have Ben Affleck playing Batman, and we have lots of opinions about Ben Affleck as Batman. But what sort of Batman will Ben Affleck be? According to Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the Batman in the forthcoming Superman/Batman movie will be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile.”

This confirms those rumors about an older and gristled Batman from a few weeks ago. If Zack Snyder did in fact meet with Frank Miller to discuss the forthcoming film, it’s more than likely that Superman vs. Batman will draw plot elements from The Dark Knight Returns.

No word yet on the full plot of the film or official word on Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. In the meantime, Mayor Adam West is upset about being passed up for the role, one that he’s totally qualified for.
