Ben Affleck Says Justice League Universe Will Be Massive
First up, Affleck admitted there is a lot of pressure in regards to Batman Vs. Superman.
“I think there is a ton of pressure on it. I mean I would be bulls—ting you to say there isn’t.”
Affleck also commented on WB's less than stellar performance this year at the box office and thinks there will be a turnaround next year due to the DC movies, stating they will be "massive."
"You’ll see next year they are going to have a great year. 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.”
The article also noted that Affleck's schedule was rearranged to accomodate the Justice League movie and a spinoff film, which is thought to be a new standalone Batman movie.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
