Affleck finds Batman tough but sophisticated
The actor thinks the role he has essayed in four films so far, is a tough but sophisticated character
Ben Affleck thinks Batman, a role he has essayed in four films till now, is a tough but sophisticated character. The 45-year-old actor will reprise his role as the billionaire industrialist and vigilante in the upcoming Justice League movie.
He and his co-star Gal Gadot, who plays Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, like the way their characters' differences make them work well together. "I think both of them are very alpha-type. Both of them deal with their past and both of them will do everything to make a better world and fight crime and evil. So we share a lot in common," Gadot says.
"It's like yin and yang. They work well together. He has everything she does not, she has everything that he doesn't and they work for the same cause... She's warmer and more loving and open and he's more sophisticated," she adds.
Affleck believes that Batman is "tough, but sophisticated. He's an asshole." The actor says the upcoming ensemble project will see a return to a "classic" Batman tale, rather than the raging caped crusader of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
"This is a very different dynamic for Bruce Wayne from the first movie, where he was full of anger and resentment and a kind of irrational rage towards Superman. Here, he really is in the mode of your more classic Batman story, where he's more heroic, trying to save and protect people, trying to build this unit," says Affleck.
