Ben Affleck Really Relates to Batman’s ‘Deeply Buried’ Anger
In an interview with UK paper The Sunday Times (via Dark Horizons) Affleck revealed that his Batman (who he will be playing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) is one angry Batman, which he can sort of relate to.
The actor said he has a lot of pent-up anger, just like Batman himself, so his on screen portrayal in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will have a ‘character flaw’ of rage.
He told the Sunday Times: “I think it’s a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films.”
For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts. I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put with, put up with, put up with…then when it emerges, it’s not something I have a ton of control over.”
“I’m not gonna do a Wolverine berserk rage, but I do have a, I do…”
So just beware of the Affleck. You never know how he may react.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released in April 2016.
