Warner Bros. CEO Says Ben Affleck's Batman Will Be 'Tired and Weary' in 'Man of Steel 2'

Kevin Tsujihara says Affleck is 'perfect for the vision Zack has for that character' who will be 'tired and weary' in the upcoming film.

How will Batman be portrayed in the upcoming sequel of "Man of Steel"? Warner Bros. Chief Kevin Tsujihara gave a little scoop on the matter at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2013 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills.

Tsujihara said the Dark Knight who would be portrayed by Ben Affleck in the "Man of Steel 2" wouldn't be bright and light. The Caped Crusader would be "tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile," so he spilled to a room full of Wall Street analysts.

Affleck's casting as the beloved hero previously played by Christian Bale in the recently-wrapped Christopher Nolan trilogy got mixed reactions from hardcore fans. It even spawned an online petition asking for the switcheroo, but the studio sticks to their choice.

"Ben is perfect for the vision Zack has for that character," Tsujihara said. He saw the controversies surrounding Affleck's casting as a good thing, "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."

The next "Man of Steel" movie will explore the first encounter of Batman of Superman. Director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer will return to their respective posts behind the scene, while Henry Cavill reprises his role as the titular hero and Amy Adams is back as Lois Lane. It is due July 17, 2015.
