Henry Cavill talks Ben Affleck’s casting in Batman vs. Superman

December 2nd, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Henry Cavill who will of course reprise his role as Superman in the upcoming film Batman Vs. Superman, spoke with Total Film briefly and shared why he thinks Ben Affleck will do well in the role of Batman:

“I’m sure he’ll be fantastic, above all else, and as a filmmaker he’s got his own style, you know, he’s not copying anyone else. And he’s also sort of been tenacious in his career. He’s had ups followed by downs and now he’s very up again and I think that requires and shows a very special strength of character, and it’s something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a strength of character. They require a dedication to the work and a belief in oneself and Ben has that, clearly.”

You can watch the segment below:

Batman Vs Superman (or whatever) is being scripted by David S. Goyer from a story he co-created with Snyder. Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the film along with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their roles in the sequel.

It is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
