Thanks to the leaked Comic-Con footage from back in July, we already know that Frank Miller's criticaly acclaimed The Dark Knight Returns will heavily influence Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a new interview, star Ben Affleck has addressed the impact he believes that will have on not just this movie but each of the Caped Crusader's past big screen adventures. 

"Yeah, I don't want to answer too many Batman questions because it is a Gone Girl thing, but I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that," Affleck tells MTV News in the video interview above. "I think everyone's heavily influenced by that...that's the seminal work. So, I don't think that there's any of these which have been made that haven't drawn from that book because it's so good. So, you know, I think if you're smart you steal from the best. That's why I'm going to rip David [Fincher] off from now on everywhere I go!" When he was asked to show off a little of his Batman voice for the movie, the actor adopted a slightly lower tone before correcting himself and jokingly saying: "Ah, you've gotta pay...that's IMAX money to see that!"

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, and Jeremy Irons, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be released on March 25th, 2016.
