Ben recently chatted with USA Today about why he was inspired to direct an upcoming Batman standalone movie.

“I’ll just say going through the process, I would never have imagined that I could or would direct a movie like this. And in working with (Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder) and seeing what he did and watching him every day, I got really inspired by that and by seeing the scope on which he was telling the story, by seeing what he was able to do with this kind of mythic story on a grand scale,” Ben said.

    Why wasn’t Jada Pinkett Smith cast in this movie? Because Zoe Saldana is a black actress that can actually act and carry a movie, unlike Jada, and get top roles in huge movies, unlike Jada who’s supporting in crap like Magic Mike XXL.
