Deadline's Mike Flemming sat down with Ben Affleck for a Playboy Interview, due to hit the stands this month, and of course had to get the important stuff: Batman. Affleck wasn't willing to give to much away, but offered up versions of similar answers we've heard from him before.
On being offered the role of Batman:
When they asked if I would be Batman, I told them I don’t see myself in the role and I was going to have to beg off. They said I’d fit well into how they were going to approach the character and asked me to look at what the writer-director, Zack Snyder, was doing. The stuff was incredible.
It was a unique take on Batman that was still consistent with the mythology. It made me excited. All of a sudden I had a reading of the character. When people see it, it will make more sense than it does now or even than it did to me initially.
And how his version of Batman will differ from Bale's:
I don’t want to give away too much, but the idea for the new Batman is to redefine him in a way that doesn’t compete with the Bale and Chris Nolan Batman but still exists within the Batman canon. It will be an older and wiser version, particularly as he relates to Henry Cavill’s Superman character.
He wrapped by sharing his regrets on his previous superhero outing:
The only movie I actually regret is Daredevil. It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got fucked up the way it did stays with me. Maybe that’s part of the motivation to do Batman.
