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.

    Incredibles was the best all rounder movie in animation history, humour for young & old, gadget & geek factor for young & old, family values, awsome backdrops of epic scale scenery.  Not to mention the... Spy factor! Secret islands! Apocalyptic doomsday robots! A freakin villain which goes by the name of "Syndrome" (totally awsome name for a villain by the way) Oh and did i mention all this in a SUPERHERO MOVIE!!!  I wish they make a sequel one day soon. Until then i guess i have marvel & DC to keep me entertained, but i suspect that any live action superhero movie may never live up to style and class of Incredibles.  PIXAR are truly genius. Thank you FROM, Nayan, U.K.
