Freeman Talks About Affleck as Batman


While Matt Damon gave his thoughts on Ben Affleck as Batman recently, Morgan Freeman also shared his thoughts about the casting while speaking to USA Today.


"This is the first I am hearing of it, my first reactions are 'Wow' and 'Good luck'. After the trilogy, I thought that no one would try it again for a few years more to let this whole thing die down, because it's still there. So I don't know, I hope Ben does well."


When asked whether or not he thinks he will reprise his role as Lucius Fox in the Batman/Superman movie Freeman said probably not.


"If the new movie does have a Lucius Fox I don't think it's going to be me, it doesn't seem to work to mix characters in the movies. If you are going to change the lead character, you're probably going to change all the characters."


Freeman starred in the 2002 action/political thriller The Sum Of All Fears with Affleck, and can be seen in the upcoming film Transcendence directed by Wally Pfister who was the Director of Photography for The Dark Knight Trilogy.
