Affleck Excited for Snyder's Batman


In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ben Affleck discusses a bit about what Zack Snyder is trying to accomplish in Man of Steel 2. Here is what Affleck had to say:


"Well, I don’t want to get too far afield and I’m sure I’ll have time to talk about Batman down the road. What I’ll say is that I really like Zack. From what I’ve seen of what’s Zack is doing, it’s made me very excited. One of the nice things about being an actor in that movie is they show you all the stuff before anyone else gets to see it. So all the sort of world-creation, and the take on the character and the other characters is really exciting. And at the end of the day, the truth is it’s really directors that make movies work or not — especially these kinds of movies, where it’s about the whole world, and a rising tide lifts all ships. And if it all has integrity, if it all has a sense of realism, then it works. And if it doesn’t, than it doesn’t really matter what everyone’s doing [on the screen] because they just look like a bunch of Mexican wrestlers in suits."


Affleck gives a lot of praise to Snyder for his world building especially since Man of Steel is going to be the starting point of the DC Universe. In the Man of Steel DVD/Blu-ray interview, Henry Cavill hints at some references found in the movie such as Dr. Hamiliton's connection to S.T.A.R Labs. According to Cavill, he believes that Cyborg would make "a wonderful character and incredible bridge between both superhumans and humanity in a different way than Batman."
