Fanboys You're Not Alone, Seth Green Doesn't Like Ben Affleck As BATMAN Either

Seth Green, co-creator of Robot Chicken and the voice of Chris Griffin on Family Guy, doesn't believe that Ben Affleck ("Gigli") is the right actor to play the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's untitled Batman/Superman film. Come check it out.




Seth Green, the actor that played Scott Evil in the Austin Powers franchise, was a guest on Ora TV’s “Larry King Now.” During his conversation with King, Seth mentioned he was glad Batman adaptions had graduated from the campiness of the Adam West television series to the grittier versions we've seen more recently.

“You gotta remember that at the core of that character, Batman’s a crazy person. Batman has no powers. Batman is a rich, screwed up kid whose parents were killed in front of him.”

Seth praised Michael Keaton's performance in Tim Burton's Batman films. Though, he voiced trepidation when it came to Batman incumbent, Ben Affleck ("Dazed and Confused").

“If this movie is meant to be the idealistic alien, humans before all else Superman, and this is supposed to be the grizzled weathered Batman who’s been living in Gotham, fighting crime himself for 10 years, you need a guy who’s older, you need a guy who’s got more weight, you need a guy that a Henry Cavill Superman is gonna be actually scared of,” Green said.

Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay being written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.
