Ben recently talked about being approached to play Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

“Initially, I was reluctant, as I felt I didn’t fit the traditional mold, but once Zack [Snyder] showed me the concept, and that it would be both different from the great movies that Chris [Nolan] and Christian [Bale] made, but still in keeping with tradition, I was excited,” Ben shared to 411 Mania.

He added, “Doing something different and new is always tricky and part of the thrill and the risk is that initially it confounds expectations. The truth is, it’s the movie and the execution of it is what all the actors depend on and I believe in Zack‘s vision.”

FYI: Ben is wearing Bally sneakers.
