Affleck Says He Was Hesitant To Play Batman

Ben Affleck has once again commented on accepting the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman vs. Superman" film.

This time, he revealed to 411Mania that he originally wasn't interested in the part until he was shown what they had in store for the role:

"Initially I was reluctant as I felt I didn’t fit the traditional mold but once Zack showed me the concept, and that it would be both different from the great movies that Chris and Christian made but still in keeping with tradition I was excited.

Doing something different and new is always tricky and part of the thrill and the risk is that initially it confounds expectations. The truth is, it’s the movie and the execution of it is what all the actors depend on and I believe in Zack’s vision.

Affleck also confirmed the already mentioned comments that this version of Batman was "tired, weary and seasoned" but wouldn't go into any further details.
