Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara spoke earlier today at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference, where he described Ben Affleck's take on the Dark Knight in Man of Steel 2, calling this version of the superhero a seasoned veteran when he first meets Henry Cavill's Superman.
This is how the new Batman was sold to investors.
"[He will be] tired and weary and seasoned and [he's] been doing it for awhile.
The CEO also addressed the casting of Ben Affleck, which caused a firestorm of controversy on the Internet when it was announced last month, with many fans lobbying to oust the actor out of the role with various petitions.
"[He is] perfect. We think it's going to be huge. [The studio] could not be happier. We think it's the perfect springboard for Batman and Superman"
Man of Steel has gone onto earn over $660 million worldwide. Kevin Tsujihara ended his speech by revealing that a lot of announcements are expected to come out of the DC Comics' unit at Warner Bros. He then followed this up by noting the fact that the studio currently has three DC-based animated shows on the air right now. So its not known what kind of announcements are expected, and they may not have anything to do with the film side of the DC universe.
What do you think? Are you excited to see a more seasoned, and exhausted Dark Knight? Or do you wish Superman was going up against the vigilante at a younger age?
