September 15, 2014: Affleck Taps in to Deeply Buried Anger for Batman RolePrint

Batman In a new interview with the UK's The Sunday Times to promote his upcoming movie "Gone Girl", Ben Affleck also spoke about his decision to take on the role of Batman for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and the emotions needed to play the Dark Knight.

    Affleck clarified that he doesn't look down on the role of Batman because of its trivial nature, and he actually shares a personality trait with the moody superhero.

    "I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films. For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts. I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put up with, put up with, put up with...then, when it finally emerges, it's not something I have a ton of control over. I'm not gonna go into a Wolverine berserker rage, but I do have a, I do..."

    Ben Affleck says that he considers this part of him a flaw, but it could help him channel what many are hinting will be this new Batman. The rumor is that Batman will confront Superman about the massive havoc he created in his epic fight with General Zod in Man of Steel, initially at least. They are expected to join forces later on for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    Crews were spotted Monday afternoon at Wright and Chene streets, just north of Chene Park, preparing for what appears to be another expensive action scene.

    There were also two Gotham City Gas tankers parked along Wright Street, a Gotham City gas truck and what appeared to be a tanker that exploded.
