Well THIS isn't going to help change any Bat-ffleck haters' minds!
While Ben Affleck may have won his role as the Caped Crusader fair and square, it sounds like his age might come into play when production gets underway on Superman vs Batman (rumored title), directed by Man of Steel's Zack Snyder.
At a Beverly Hills conference this week, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara addressed the critical outpouring following the decision to deem Ben as the next Dark Knight. Kevin described the 41-year-old actor as perfect for the part but also teased at what we can expect to see when Ben takes over this classic character!
"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. [He'll be] tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while."
Tired and weary??? How old do you think Ben Affleck is?!
We are still not really feeling Ben being the Bat, but what's done is done!
C'mon though, Kevin! If you're trying to hype up what is sure to be a HUGE hit movie, you need to go back to your marketing team for a better slogan!
Because a tired and weary Batman is the last thing audiences want to see!
Here's hoping we aren't introduced to the Bat Rascal Scooter in Summer 2015!
