Ben Affleck Talks About Pressure for New Batman to Succeed

Ben Affleck is opening up about his upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the pressure he feels to make the movie succeed.

The 43-year-old actor talked to Variety about how the upcoming movies based on the DC Comics universe are basically resting on the fate of this film.

“I think there is a ton of pressure on it,” Ben said. “I mean I would be bulls—ting you to say there isn’t.”

“You’ll see next year they are going to have a great year,” Ben said of Warner Bros, the studio behind the films. “They are now developing … probably the single greatest under-exploited IP asset in the entertainment business, the DC comic world. And now they have started to exploit that and you are going to see that blossom. And, when it does, it’s going to be massive.”

Make sure to see Ben playing Batman for the first time in the movie, hitting theaters on March 25, 2016.
