Out doing the press rounds for "Gone Girl," Ben Affleck tells UK newspaper The Sunday Times that his own issues with anger are helping him relate to his new role of a grizzled, past his prime Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Seems the new Bruce Wayne will not be happy:
"I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films. 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. »

Further to "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" filming a memorial ceremony in the city of 'Metropolis', paying tribute to the thousands who died during the alien battles in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel", take another look @ a 'destruction compilation', highlighting the carnage from that first film:
"...in the pantheon of superheroes, 'Superman' is the most recognized and revered character of all time. 'Clark Kent'/'Kal-El' (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination.
"Transported to Earth years ago from 'Krypton', an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question...Why am I here?
"Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents 'Martha' and 'Jonathan Kent', Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions.
"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain »

We’ve got the latest on DC’s biggest title, including an update on the case of the stolen Batmobile, and Ben Affleck talking about rage. Ooh scary.

(Cbr) To help prepare for his role in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," Ben Affleck revealed he keyed in on a trait he shares with the Dark Knight of director Zack Snyder’s film: rage. “I think it’s a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films,” the 42-year-old actor told The Sunday Times. “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’s my personality.” Affleck also addressed another rage — that expressed by a lot of Batman fans when he was cast »

As the Batman franchise gears up for yet another motion picture reboot, the process of reviving the legacy of the Dark Knight has once more run into the criticism that it seems to have constantly endured since its first major revival in 1989. That stumbling block is, of course, that the public does not feel like the actor that's playing Batman is the first choice they would have went with. For months now, we've seen Ben Affleck take heavy fire from the maddening crowd, and return it in measured fashion. But if the internet masses think they're going to deter Affleck from turning in a proper performance, they're nothing but wrong. The Sunday Times caught up with the man who will be Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder's first Justice League run-up film, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and he has dug deep to explain why he is the best »
Despite its constant appearance in the news cycle, we still don’t know very much about Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially when it comes to the version of the Caped Crusader that we’ll see on screen. No two Batman interpretations are completely alike, and from the sound of it, Ben Affleck will play a far different Batman than Christian Bale did in the Dark Knight trilogy.
We’ve already heard reports that this version is in his mid-40s, making him a bit older than previous versions of the character, and that he’s likely been operating in the shadows of Gotham for quite some time. This darker, more seasoned crime fighter will draw inspiration from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, and even has a massive and powerful Batmobile to prove it.

If you didn't already know, Batman can become a very angry person, and he has a rage inside of him that pushes him to do the things that he does. In an interview with The Sunday Times, actor Ben Affleck, who'll be taking on the role of the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, talked about how he relates to Bruce Wayne in that way, but also admits that it's a character flaw saying:
"I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films. 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 »

Most of the Avengers know how to have some fun and the Guardians of the Galaxy certainly enjoy their fair share of messing around, but Batman’s a different story. Bruce Wayne makes an effort to be cordial and dishes out the occasional smile, but Batman is all business all the time, so between that, his demeanor and his growl, he can come across as a pretty angry guy. While discussing playing the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck spoke to Batman’s anger issues and connected them to his own. Hit the jump to find out how Affleck relates to Batman’s rage. Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

Ben Affleck has a great challenge ahead of him in the next few months as he heads out on the road to promote David Fincher's Gone Girl, in theaters the first week of October. He will be asked to talk about the 2016 release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice without really being able to talk about it. The UK Sunday Times manages to get him to open up a little bit about the character of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego The Dark Knight, with the actor explaining how he deals with Batman's rage issues.
Anger is something Ben Affleck has had an easy time suppressing. Though when it comes, it comes in loud quick bursts. The actor was able to channel this into his performance as Bruce Wayne, an aging vigilante who has a run-in with the universe's strongest alien life form, known to mankind as Superman.
Ben Affleck explains, »
Sure, the Batmobile has a gun on top of it, but that doesn't mean blasters are legal in Gotham.
Kicking off this weekend, Zack Snyder - hard at work on Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice - tweeted out his newest in a line of Batman V. Superman/Star Wars photos, this one of Gcpd and the Batmobile on scene for the arrest of a Stormtrooper.

Is this just directors having fun or is this still a hint that Snyder and Team Star Wars are still circling each other. After all, there are more upcoming Star Wars movies than upcoming Zack Snyder movies...barely.
For some reason, there was a rumor that a Batmobile had been stolen from the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bleeding Cool picked up the story from CBS News of all places, but it turned out to be completely false. How do we know? Well, aside from the official confirmations that not even one of the several Batmobiles on set had been stolen, director Zack Snyder decided to continue his Star Wars photo gags (previously seen with a Jedi Superman and Batman on Tatooine) by having another recognizable character from a galaxy far, far away apprehended by police for trying to steal Batman's ride. Here's the photo Zack Snyder posted on Twitter over the weekend: Case closed. pic.twitter.com/fVyENoksFp — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) September 13, 2014 Check out the most recent official photos of the armed and badass Batmobile right here!

Another day, another mysterious Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice/Star Wars crossover from Zack Snyder. The director of the DC Comics sequel tweeted on Saturday a photo of two Gotham City police officers, the newly debuted Batmobile and a Stormtrooper who was being shoved into the cop car, all with an elusive caption: "Case closed." The tweet is the latest in a series, following a shot of Man of Steel star Henry Cavill holding a lightsaber and dubbed a "Super Jedi" and of the caped Batman traversing a mountain with R2-D2 by his side. He's been tagging Star Wars: Episode VII

Ben Affleck has admitted to sharing a character flaw with Batman.
The actor has said that he and Bruce Wayne - who he will portray in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - are both victims of rage.
"I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films," he told The Sunday Times.
"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 emerges, it's not something I have a ton of control over. I'm not gonna do a Wolverine berserk rage, but I do have a, I do..."
When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”
In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

Despite acknowledging that The Scribbler boasts a title fitting only the wussiest superhero imaginable, this indie graphic novel adaptation somewhat holds its own against bigger Marvel/DC bullies who command the comic book genre. It’s not easy for a little fish to swim with the sharks, as even larger-budget films like The Spirit couldn’t hack it, but Dan Schaffer’s multiple story layers are able to provide enough groundwork for director John Suits to build a heavily saturated, psychotically seedy world around. There are certainly heroes and villains, but not in the way comic book movies have taught us to recognize, which is somewhat refreshing with so many spandex-clad hard-bodies running about and being all disgustingly charming – give me a cynical, conflicted hero any day of the week.

At some during the production of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman's (Ben Affleck) Batmobile was going to have to hit the streets of Detroit for filming. It finally did last week, and shutterbugs were quick to snap shots of the muddied up futuristic ride and plaster them all over the Internet.
Snyder caught wind of these images and grainy videos, either on his own accord or via tips. Either way, he felt the images didn't do the ride justice and provided a single Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile to rule them all.
The extremely high resolution Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile image was shared via Twitter and posted via imgur. The resolution is insane and provides an inside look into how detailed this new Batmobile is.
For those wondering, this incredibly sharp picture was taken with a Nikon D800 Iso 500 24mm f/11 1/25th sec. »
In case you hadn’t heard, a little movie called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in and around Detroit, Mi. Since we live in the Golden Age of social media networking, set pictures and videos have fueled all kinds of speculation on what’s going on in this movie, from Ben Affleck’s shoulder injury to Jesse Eisenberg’s hair to Scoot McNairy’s legs.
The most recent set leaks revolved around Batman’s ride. Instagram users posted several pictures of the new, updated Batmobile, which was promptly followed by an official photo released by director Zack Snyder. The exciting design appears to be something of a hybrid between the tank-like ...
