Affleck stated:
[The movie] additionally does take us to a extra conventional model of Batman within the Justice League comics, and his position with the Justice League versus the much less conventional model in Batman v Superman the place he was blinded by rage and needed to tackle Superman. So, it was a number of enjoyable for me; I additionally acquired to have a sort of a dry wit, I acquired to play off Ezra [Miller], which was a number of enjoyable as a result of he is so humorous and Bruce is at all times on the verge of exasperation. It was enjoyable to indicate another colours, for positive.
So it does not essentially sound like Batman is on the verge of turning into a chattier superhero within the vein of Tony Stark or Oliver Queen. Nevertheless, Justice League used a extra correct depiction from the comics and Ben Affleck’s Batman will likely be able to working inside a crew surroundings. He is nonetheless a loner and is mostly a darkish superhero, however interacting with the extra flamboyant and eccentric heroes permits Ben Affleck to dive into the wittier and extra lighthearted areas of Bruce’s (and by extension, Batman’s) character.
That concept feels additional accentuated by the truth that Justice League thrusts Batman into the considerably unfamiliar place of enjoying the chief. Elsewhere through the press convention, Affleck defined that one of many extra attention-grabbing nuances of this efficiency revolved round with the ability to ‘gel with Marvel Girl’ of their quest to assemble a mismatched crew of superheroes. In spite of everything, he has led The Bat Family earlier than, however Justice League will pressure him right into a management place that is not precisely inside his consolation zone — identical to the comedian ebook Batman.
Along with feeling extra correct to the supply materials, Ben Affleck’s Justice League Batman exhibits how these motion pictures have began to stack on prime of each other. Starting along with his indignant Batman V Superman persona (itself a results of Man of Steel), Batman realized the folly of his methods and labored to turn out to be much less violent throughout Suicide Squad by taking Deadshot to the Gotham Police. Further inspired by his work with Marvel Girl and Superman’s sacrifice, it ought to all come collectively to show Batfleck into the Batman everyone knows and love by the point Justice League debuts.
