Ben Affleck's December Playboy Interview Is Now Online In Its Entirety

Body

12501 Back in December, Playboy featured an interview with Ben Affleck where the writer and director talked Batman Vs. Superman as well as Daredevil.

Now the interview has recently been made available online in its entirety.

Previously we posted how Daredevil was going to be an inspiration for Affleck as well as Affleck mentioning that Batman will be an older and wiser version that differs from Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan's Batman.

Now in the full interview we see Affleck also comments on the fan reaction to the announcement of Batman.

I expected that reaction. Warner Bros. told me, "You should know what you're getting into." They showed me the reactions to other folks who had been cast in these roles. They said this is how it tends to play out initially.

When they asked if I would be Batman, I told them I didn't see myself in the role and I was going to have to beg off. They said I'd fit well into how they were going to approach the character and asked me to look at what the writer-director, Zack Snyder, was doing. The stuff was incredible.

I understand I'm at a disadvantage with the internet. If I thought the result would be another Daredevil, I'd be out there picketing myself. [laughs] Why would I make the movie if I didn't think it was going to be good and that I could be good in it?

You can head on over here to read the full interview from early December of last year.

"Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
