Ben Affleck Teases A More Heroic Batman Will Be Seen In 'Justice League'

Our first introduction to Ben Affleck's Batman was in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which we saw a more rage-motivated Dark Knight only set on destroying Superman. However he won't be like that when we see him next in Zack Snyder's Justice League.

In the, soon to be released, film, a threat far greater than what Batman can handle comes to Earth, so to combat it, he embarks in rallying up the troops, those being Ezra Miller's The Flash, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher's Cyborg. All this allows the character of Bruce Wayne/Batman to grow as a hero by beginning to trust people again.

“He’s put in this position of having to reach out, find other people, convincing them to do something,” Affleck explained to Entertainment Weekly. “Part of the drama of the movie is the question of whether or not the team is going to come together. It’s very different from the tenor of the last movie.”

Affleck added with, “'BvS' departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod.” Affleck went on to expand on the contrast between BvS' Batman to the one we will see in Justice League. “He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.”

Affleck continued to explain that the newer take of the character is more inline with what Batman is in the comics. “This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics,” he said. “This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book.”

“Not that it’s average,” Affleck clarified. “I think it’s a really cool story. Actually, it’s sort of a story about multilateralism. It’s not a bad theme to have!”

Justice League is set to release November 17, 2017.
