Warner Bros. CEO Talks Affleck as Batman


Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara briefly talked about how Ben Affleck's Batman will be in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel at an investor gathering recently. Here's what he had to say about what we can expect from the new Batman in a report over at Variety:


“Ben Affleck's Batman will be tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile.”


Though the choice of Affleck has troubled some Batman fans, Tsujihara said he was “perfect” for the film that Zack Snyder is directing. “We think it’s going to be huge,” he added.


“We think it’s the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman,” he added. “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.”


Kevin Tsujihara also mentioned that there will be upcoming announcements from Warner Bros. regarding DC characters, but did not specify if it would be television or movie announcements.
