Holy acting ability, Batfleck!

There have been quite a few actors to play Batman over the years, from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale.

In a couple of months though, we’re going to be introduced to Ben Affleck‘s version of the caped crusader in Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While many people loved Bale’s take on the caped crusader, Snyder is ABSOLUTELY thrilled with his choice for the Dark Knight!

The 300 director spoke with People about Ben’s version of the character saying:

“He’s an amazing Bruce Wayne, let’s just be frank about that. And then when he puts the cowl on, you know he’s got the chin for it.”

Though Zach is aware of some of the initial backlash from announcing Affleck’s casting, he said:

“Casting Ben felt like a no brainer to me. I know that there was some backlash, but he’s just so perfect to me, especially in his size and his age.”

The 49-year-old director went on to dish that he believes fans will eventually come around:

“I’m sure once the fans discover it, they’ll feel the same way I do.He’s certainly got the chops for it, so I didn’t quite get the initial reaction.”

Snyder even remembers the moment he realized how AH-Mazing Affleck looked in the suit when he released the first pic of the Bat:

“I took that picture of him next to the Batmobile. When I looked at the back of the camera to see what it looked like, I was like, ‘Holy sh*t, that is ridiculously perfect.'”

Though we were a bit underwhelmed by the last trailer for BvS, we’ll still be going to see it when it’s released on March 25, 2016!

And seeing Batfleck in action is no small part of the excitement!
