Last year, Ben Affleck said that the goal was to take Batman and, “redefine him in a way that doesn’t compete with Bale and Christopher Nolan’s Batman.” That makes sense, especially as The Dark Knight Trilogy is such a beloved trilogy which saw Christian Bale deliver one of the greatest takes on the Caped Crusader ever.
However, as fans, we can all agree that there is room for improvement. Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman was very grounded in reality, while Zack Snyder looks set to turn to the comic books for inspiration when it comes to bringing The Dark Knight to the big screen in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So, what exactly would we like to see Ben Affleck’s Batman do come 2016 in order to deliver perhaps THE definitive take on the iconic DC superhero? Here are ten suggestions, all of which we would love to hear your thoughts on below. Oh, and don’t forget to let us know what else you would like to see from our next Batman!
10. The Voice
Perhaps I’m in the minority, but I didn’t totally hate Christian Bale’s Batman voice in The Dark Knight Trilogy! However, I think we can all agree that it was at its best in Batman Begins, and there’s really no need for Ben Affleck to also adopt a much deeper growl when he dons the mask in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. While you can understand why Nolan thought it was a necessary way for Bruce Wayne to hide his identity, this version of The Dark Knight will exist in a world where a pair of glasses stop people from realizing that Clark Kent and Superman are one and the same, so Affleck’s normal voice will be just fine for this latest take on the iconic DC superhero. Whether or not he does adopt a different voice will be greatly scrutinized in the first trailer…
