With Comic-Con 2015 just around the corner, fans will surely get a new look at Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during the studio's Hall H panel on Saturday, July 12 at 10:30 AM. While we wait for that footage to arrive, a much different Batman video has surfaced, through the shared Instagram account of child actor Seth Lee, who co-stars alongside Ben Affleck in the Warner Bros.' drama The Accountant. The video gives us a look at Ben Affleck uttering the famous line, "I am Batman" for the first time.
Ben Affleck isn't wearing his full Batman costume in the video, where he trades saying the iconic line with Seth Lee. While we did get a few brief glimpses of the actor in the first Batman v Superman trailer that debuted in April, we didn't hear the actor speak at all, so we'll have to wait and see if his voice in the movie is anywhere close to this impromptu set video. We don't even know if Ben Affleck will say "I'm Batman" in the movie. But the line has become somewhat of a tradition for the past 25 years or so.
Ever since Michael Keaton said "I am Batman" in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie, the line has been uttered by every actor who followed, including Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale. With that being said, it's almost a given that Ben Affleck will utter this line in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, check out the video featuring Ben Affleck and Seth Lee saying "I am Batman."
