Josh Brolin Liked Idea Of Playing An "Older And Wiser" Bruce Wayne In BATMAN/SUPERMAN
Josh Brolin has already confirmed that he was in talks for the role of Batman, but now reveals whether he ever had a specific take on the character in mind. He also shares his disdain for those who have said that Ben Affleck is wrong for the role because he previously played Daredevil.
"I honestly don't know!" Josh Brolin told MTV News when they asked him exactly how close he came to playing Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman movie. As for whether he had at any point thought about what his take on the Caped Crusader would look like, the Oldboy star added, "No. I mean, I started thinking about it personally...you know, what are they going to do with this older, wiser version? I liked the idea and I thought it was a really interesting idea." However, while it seems obvious from the video interview above that he was disappointed not to get the job, he's not envious of the vitriol which has since been thrown Ben Affleck's way. "Ben's got so much flak from this, I actually got angry for him, not at him. Everyone else is angry at him! I'm really curious to see what he does and what Zack does. I'll see the movie. I'll be a fan to see whatever version they're going to do. But how do you bring up a movie that Ben did 10 or 15 years ago and...I mean, c'mon, the guy has grown and matured and just look at the work he's doing now. I'm going to defend him literally until death!"
