Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have several looks at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The photos were part of an in depth look at the upcoming film.
Ben Affleck: “Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet. We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations. He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”
Zack Snyder: “I liked the fact that Ben was 6’ 4” and taller than Henry. I wanted Superman to have to feel like he was looking up to Batman despite being so much stronger.”
Affleck was asked about his time as previous attempt as a superhero: “Daredevil didn’t work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite. That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of ‘Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.’ They really learned how to make this stuff work. Good is the new bad.”
Look for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in theaters March 25, 2016.
