In surprising news to no-one, it has been confirmed that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile” in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel.
Warner Bros. Pictures CEO Kevin Tsujihara used those words as he addressed an investor conference at Bank Of America yesterday.
In regards to the film itself, Tsujihara says “We think it’s going to be huge… We think it’s the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman.”
He also acknowledged the controversy over the choice of Affleck, but says: “Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character. The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character.”
