Ben Affleck's Batman Will Be "Tired, Weary and Seasoned"

We knew that at 41, Ben Affleck wasn't going to be a spring chicken depiction of Batman. We did not know however, how far down the "seasoned" path Warner Bros. intended to go with the introduction of the character in their sequel "Superman Vs. Batman".

According to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, Affleck's Batman will be "tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile." The exec followed his revealing statement with praise for Affleck and how he thinks he is "perfect" for "Man of Steel 2/Batman Vs. Superman". Perhaps there are better words to get the point across, opposed to calling our beloved caped crusader "tired and weary"? We certainly don't want a puny Bat on our hands.

We can safely predict the film is not going to be a modest opening and apparently Tsujihara feels the same way. "We think it’s going to be huge," he said of the sequel. Color me unsurprised, my friend.

Henry Cavill is already 11 years younger than Affleck, so if they are really going to play up the disgruntled, old man Batman, it should be a less-than-fair fight, for a battle that is already pretty heavily weighted in Superman's favor.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
