Ben Affleck talks Zack Snyder and ‘Batman vs. Superman’

Entertainment Weekly caught up with Ben Affleck recently to talk about the upcoming extended Blu-ray release of his movie Argo, which won the Oscar for Best Picture earlier this year. Naturally, Batman vs. Superman came up as well and EW asked what it was like putting on the Batsuit for the first time. Affleck dodged the question, but did talk about director Zack Snyder and the movie overall. Here’s what he had to say:

Well, I don’t want to get too far afield and I’m sure I’ll have time to talk about Batman down the road. What I’ll say is that I really like Zack. From what I’ve seen of what’s Zack is doing, it’s made me very excited. One of the nice things about being an actor in that movie is they show you all the stuff before anyone else gets to see it. So all the sort of world-creation, and the take on the character and the other characters is really exciting. And at the end of the day, the truth is it’s really directors that make movies work or not — especially these kinds of movies, where it’s about the whole world, and a rising tide lifts all ships. And if it all has integrity, if it all has a sense of realism, then it works. And if it doesn’t, than it doesn’t really matter what everyone’s doing [on the screen] because they just look like a bunch of Mexican wrestlers in suits.
