Why Ben Affleck Chose To Play Batman

Batman's got one of the most impressive, deep rogue galleries in all of comics, and I think it's time more of them were given the love they deserve! Though the epicenter of DC Comcs has always revolved around Batman and Superman, that's starting to change.

Ciaran Hinds plays the villanous Steppenwolf in Justice League. "Henry (Cavill), Ben (Affleck) and I had a wonderful addition with Ezra and Jason and Ray (that) just stirred everything up".

While this doesn't give us too much insight into the character himself, it does speak to the more simplified approach this film is taking. But these heroes must be brought together to face a common threat and Wonder Woman actress, Gal Gadot, explained why Steppenwolf is the ideal villain for Justice League. And to see that different manifestation of Batman and his whole different style. And Wonder Woman, a more evolved and experienced heroine in the wake of her movie, "understands the pressure and the stakes" of the invading force, Gadot says.

"Zack from the time that I first met with him said, 'Look, Batman makes the DC world dark. And everyone watching this movie is going to identify with the "at the between" characters and the similarities between characters as well". Today's Nerdist News is using our Mother Box to reveal how Justice League's reception may affect the previously announced DCEU films.

However, the consensus among those who have seen Justice League is that all of the heroes come off well, and the direction of the franchise is in good shape.

Then this past May, Snyder announced that he and wife Deborah, a Justice League producer, would be stepping away from the film to deal with the suicide of Snyder's 20-year-old daughter, Autumn, two months prior.

Justice League director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which debuted Cavill as Superman four years ago, started the path to the supergroup event movie.

"Justice League", a team-up movie, will be followed by solo efforts.
