Man of Steel producer, Charles Roven, has given away a few details about Man of Steel 2. According to Roven, who held an interview with Variety, he discusses why Warner Bros. picked Ben Affleck an what they choose to do Batman in the new movie coming out 2015. See below:
"We wanted a guy who had a certain age and a certain gravitas to what he had done in terms of his recent work. If you take a look at ‘The Town’ and ‘Argo,’ he plays a couple of serious guys in those movies. He’s a big man. He’s also a mature man. As you see him and Henry together, one definitely has much more experience just by looking at him. That’s what we wanted, particularly juxtaposed against our Superman.
On ‘Batman vs. Superman,’ we started soft prep in June, and we’ll be shooting eight months later…We felt that we accomplished our goals with ‘Man of Steel. Our intention was to bring Superman into the 21st century with a contemporary character and a different kind of superhero than what’s out there right now.We knew we had created a world and we had left Easter eggs in the movie that let people know that in the universe that Zack was creating, there was the possibility of other DC characters besides Clark Kent. We had a sketch of an idea, the beats of a story that David Goyer worked on with Zack. We have a first draft, and we’re continuing to work with it. Those scripts are never fully finished until the movie is in the theaters. We love the characters — we think that Ben (Affleck) is going to be a really great and interesting Batman."
From this part of the interview, it confirms that Warner Bros. is going for a seasoned Batman. Fans will just have to wait for the promo image stills, teasers, and trailers in order to get a good feel of Affleck as Batman.
