Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara has called Ben Affleck "perfect" for the role of Batman.
"Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character. The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character," he said.
Tsujihara teased that Affleck will portray Batman as "tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while."
He added: "We think it's going to be huge. We think it's the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman."
Tsujihara also hinted that several more DC superhero-related announcements will be made in the coming months, involving video games, consumer products, television and film. »
