New BATMAN v SUPERMAN Story Details; Ben Affleck Shares <i>Real</i> Feelings On DAREDEVIL

New details about how long Batman has been fighting crime when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice kicks off have been revealed ("[He's] at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life."), while Ben Affleck weighs in on just how much he really hated working on Daredevil...

Entertainment Weekly has another piece up about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and this one brings with it some interesting new story details. Ben Affleck describes his Batman as being "at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it," while the site adds that this version of the Caped Crusader has been protecting Gotham City for twenty years now. Wayne Manor meanwhile has been left a "desolate husk, overtaken by weeds and water-stains after years of neglect." Don't mistake him for a helpless old man though, as he'll definitely be giving the Man of Steel a run for his money when they finally come to blows. "I liked the fact that Ben was 
 6’ 4” and taller 
than Henry," says director Zack Snyder. "I wanted Superman to 
have to feel like 
he was looking up to Batman despite being so much stronger."

Affleck went on to talk about the responsibility of suiting up as the Dark Knight, a role no one could have ever really imagined him taking on after starring in Daredevil. "Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet. We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations." Talking of the Man Without Fear, the Batman v Superman star made it clear that he has nothing nice to say about that particular movie. "Daredevil didn’t work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite,. That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of ‘Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.’" What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below.
