Ben Affleck Does not want his Batman to Compete with Other Incarnations!
Ben Affleck is at the center of the DC Extended Universe and the pressure on him is tremendous since his character Batman will undoubtedly be the anchor of the cinematic universe. Looking at the same when lots of people tend to compare his version with the previous ones, Ben is actually far away from comparison.
According to Design & Trend, Ben’s Batman has been facing similarities with the last known version of the Dark Knight that featured in the Nolan Batman Universe. In every discussion Ben’s Batman finds itself getting compared to Christian’s and that further fuels another debate altogether. The media outlet, while quoting Comicbook.com stated Ben’s comments about playing the role.
According to the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” star, he doesn’t want to compete with other incarnations of the character and neither does he want to emulate them.
According to the star, the previous versions exist in different universes while his version is different. He further elaborated that Bale’s version that existed in the Nolan Universe helped the filmmaker tell a finite story. However, his version of Batman is more faithful to the mythology of Batman and every theme associated with it.
Since both the versions of Batman are in different universes, there really is no comparison here. When asked about his version to be different than Bale’s, Ben said that he will be touching up on the Billionaire, playboy side of Bruce Wayne too.
According to him, his Bruce Wayne has multiple relationships, possesses many cars and parties a lot. The reason why he does all of this is to fill the void in his soul and is majorly driven by frustration, anger and bitterness.
We think Bruce’s frustration could be because of his inability to save Jason from the Joker and perhaps that’s why he stopped being the Batman since he could not fulfill his duties.
According to E!, things on the personal side too seem to working out at a stagnant pace for Ben as he will be spending this Christmas with estranged wife Jennifer Garner and their children. Though they are not together anymore, they continue to spend time together for the sake of their children and continue to keep them as their priority. The family now looks forward to a Merry Christmas ahead at Montana where they will be celebrating the festival.
