UPDATE: Ben Affleck is currently shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’ve seen photos of him on set, he appeared at Comic-Con to promote it, but not much has changed in regards to his feelings.
In September 2013, the actor praised the script’s unique take on the character, the work of director Zack Snyder, and discussed how he got cast – with Warner Bros. showing him clips of previous superhero casting backlash. Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said all of this again. We’ve got the new Ben Affleck Batman quotes, along with the old ones (and a video), below.

After last year’s epic Batman v Superman announcement, everyone expects Warner Bros. to give fans tons of big news at Comic-Con this year. We’d already heard pretty definitively that the next bit film, Justice League directed by Zack Snyder, would hit in 2017. Given the casting of characters such as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, WB and DC seem to be readying other major superheroes for spin offs. Now, a rumored schedule has been released that shows the potential Warner Bros. and DC schedule through 2018. Not on the list? Batman. What is on the list? Shazam, Wonder Woman and a Flash/Green Lantern team up. See the Warner Bros DC schedule below. Read More »
Warner Bros has officially announced that Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman movie will be titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice title is obviously playing upon the announced Justice League follow-up. Principal photography starts today in Detroit, MI.
I really hate they are going for a V instead of “Vs.” and also the “Dawn of Justice” subtitle makes it feel like how Marvel Studios titled Captain America: The First Avenger to get people to see the film, billing it as the prequel to the big superhero team-up. But did they really have to do that kind of promotion for a Batman vs. Superman film? Shouldn’t those name brands have been good enough?

Zack Snyder‘s reveal of Ben Affleck‘s new Batsuit was international news. Fans everywhere analyzed the photo like it was evidence in a murder trial, dissecting the costume’s texture, the size of specific elements, Affleck’s muscular structure, and more. Snyder specifically released the photo in black and white, leaving the color of the suit up for debate. Photoshoppers everywhere took the hint and colored-in the image giving fans a bunch of options of what the suit might really look like.
Some might remember, long before the world saw the suit, director, Batman fan and friend of Affleck Kevin Smith admitted he’d seen it. “You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before,” Smith said at the time, “For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending.” Well, the photo Snyder released kind of looks like other suits, so Smith clarified his original statement. He said the suit he saw was the Frank Miller-designed, Dark Knight Returns combo of blue and grey. Read More »
