The Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, has finally shared his thoughts on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. The two actors will be working very closely together early next year, when Batman vs. Superman begins shooting in Detroit. Check out what Cavill had to say about Affleck in the video above or via the transcript below.
I’m sure he’ll be fantastic, above all else, and as a filmmaker he’s got his own style, you know, he’s not copying anyone else. And he’s also sort of been tenacious in his career. He’s had ups followed by downs and now he’s very up again and I think that requires and shows a very special strength of character, and it’s something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a strength of character. They require a dedication to the work and a belief in oneself and Ben has that, clearly.
