In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ben Affleck promises a "more traditional" Batman in Justice League, meaning the character will be heroic and actually save people. He compared this take to the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He's heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people."

Affleck also explained how part of the drama for Justice League will be whether or not the team will assemble.

"Part of the drama of the movie is the question of whether or not the team is going to come together. It's very different from the tenor of the last movie."

The actor went on to say that this Batman is more in line with the comics and also showed how above normal people he is by casually dropping "vis a vis" in conversation.

"This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman's usually been portrayed, and how he's portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics," he explains. "This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book."

Directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon, who recently said he was changing the film's ending so it "ended like a movie", Justice League stars Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as SupermanGal Gadot as Wonder WomanJason Momoa as AquamanEzra Miller as The FlashRay Fisher as Cyborg, and Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf. The film is set to release November 17, 2017.
