In a new interview with The Sunday Times, Ben Affleck revealed that he and Batman have a similar character flaw when it comes to rage, hinting that Batman’s anger will be key in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “I think it’s a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films,” he said.
“For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts. I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put up with, put up with, put up with… then, when it finally emerges, it’s not something I have a ton of control over. I’m not gonna go into a Wolverine berserker rage, but I do have a, I do… That is an interesting thing that you point out. That’s my personality… By the way, that’s a character flaw, I think. I should sit down and say, ‘Listen, I just want to let you know what happened there wasn’t OK’, instead of going, let it go, let it go, let it go… ‘Ah, that’s not a big deal’, until finally you just pop!”
With Batman being older in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he may not have a lot of patience. Are you looking forward to seeing Ben Affleck’s Batman snap out of anger?
