Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill attend a press conference for their upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Friday (March 11) in Beijing, China.
The co-stars were joined by the film’s director Zack Snyder to kick off their press tour for the new superhero film.
Ben recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly and opened up about how his Batman differs from the ones in past movies.
“What I wanted was to create a Batman that was sort of at the end of his rope physically and psychologically and emotionally, a guy who was beaten down by the world, a guy who was a little bit more of a slugger, who has more gray in his hair, and who was questioning whether the whole journey that he lived as Batman was in fact even worth it, given that he was not superhero, but now had to face a super-being, which none of the other Batmans had to confront in the movie world,” Ben said.
“It’s an interesting thing to combine, because in the Nolan Batmans, which are the defining Batmans — so magnificent — there are no other superheroes,” he added. “It’s just this guy. He never has to reconcile who he is with this idea that there are all these other people who can do these supernatural things. Having to confront that and having to deal with that is my contribution to the character.
