Ben affleck’s Batman/Bruce Wayne age Batman V Superman confirmed?

It looks like the ‘how old is Bruce Wayne’ in Dawn of Justice speculation can finally end…

With rumours flying that Bruce would be in his 50s in the new movies, I’ll not lie, I was a little worried because, frankly, unless they are going down the Batman Beyond road, it’s too old. But it looks like things have been exaggerated.

We know that Zack Snyder confirmed he’d be a “seasoned crimefighter” and that the story is heavily influenced by Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns but just how old was he going to be? We’ve seen Affleck sporting the grey hair but a man under that sort of pressure can go grey pretty early, yes? Hopefully.

Well, it looks like producer Michael Uslan, in an interview with Asbury Park Press, may have cleared the whole thing up: “So, this [controversial superhero casting] has happened time and again, and it happened with Affleck. To go back to the original thought of Bruce Wayne in his mid-40s, I think he’s going to be extraordinary.”

So, Bruce Wayne will be the age of Ben Affleck. That’s a bit easier to digest and given that, in the mythology, Bruce puts the suit on when he’s in his mid-30s then that gives him 10 years to become a myth and legend in Gotham.

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
