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.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
