All eyes are on Ben Affleck this month as his new take on Bruce Wayne could sink or swim the future of Batman on the big screen. He’s had a lot to say about his portrayal of the character though, calling him “broken” and “war-weary.”

In his recent interview with the NY Times (via Squareeyed), Affleck has spoken about Zack Snyder’s vision for the film, and of The Dark Knight going forward. He’s “a Batman who had been Batman for 20 years,” and the director wanted him to be a “war-weary Batman.”

On playing Wayne, Affleck said “He’s living in this grey zone. He’s more broken, not slick. He’s filling the hole in his soul with these increasingly morally questionable nighttime excursions — fighting crime as well as by being this playboy.”

Speaking on his vigilante co-star, Henry Cavill said “There’s some real pain buried in there, in the soul of this Batman, yet it’s covered with scar tissue. There’s some bitterness, which, if dealt with poorly, can go down a bad road.”

We can only speculate what this pain could be caused by, but at this point we’re just going to have to wait patiently to find out when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released on March 25th.

Synopsis: “Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fuelled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction. The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love.”

OK, more cool BvS stuff…
