Ben Affleck will be the fifth actor to take on The Dark Knight in a big screen role since 1989 when he suits up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor has talked about how his Batman is different to other screen interpretations, but that didn’t stop Affleck reaching out to previous Bruce Waynes for advice.
“I talked to Christian [Bale], who just told me to make sure I got a zipper in the suit, which was valuable, practical advice as it turned out,” he joked on Good Morning America (via Den of Geek).
And what about George Clooney? The man many people think to be the worst big-screen Batman? Well apparently he,”gave me some advice which is not repeatable.”
We can only imagine what he said.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) and Christina Wren (Carrie Farris) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as The Flash, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth, Holly Hunter (The Piano) as Senator Finch, Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) as Mercy Graves, Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead) as Martha Wayne, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) as Thomas Wayne and Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), Jena Malone (Sucker Punch) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
