Affleck On Batman Vs. Superman: "There’s No Real Winner"


With the title “Batman v Superman” becoming more omnipresent closer to the film’s arrival in theaters, it’s hard not to wonder which DC hero would win in a fight. And if you get a chance to talk to one of the two actors playing those superheroes, then of course you have to get their take on the outcome of the titular match. French magazine “Studio Cine Live” took that chance when talking to Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

When asked who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman, Affleck replied, “Well… When you see the film, you’ll realize it’s more complicated than that! There’s no real winner. I like the idea that Truth is the winner.”

And Superman wasn’t the only hero that “Studio Cine Live” asked Affleck to compare his Batman against. Affleck also gave his thoughts about how his version of Bruce Wayne will compare to the one played by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan’s recent “Dark Knight” film trilogy.

“I don’t want to compete with other incarnations, nor do I want to emulate them,” said Affleck to “Studio Cine Live,” via Batman-News. “Those versions belong in another universe. Christopher Nolan used his Batman to tell a finite story. My version is different, but remains faithful to the Batman mythology and all the themes associated with it. The other difference is that Nolan’s Batman isn’t part of a universe where other superheroes exist as well. Here — because we’re working towards the Justice League — there’s Superman, and it’s a world populated with super beings. This situation generates an altogether new reality.”

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and Amy Adams, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens on March 25, 2016.
