Henry Cavill Talks Ben Affleck’s Casting in Batman vs. Superman

We’re just a few months away from production officially beginning on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated follow-up to Man of Steel, and with it will come the big screen face off we’ve all been waiting for: Batman vs. Superman. Henry Cavill will reprise his role in the upcoming film where he will go toe-to-toe with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Speaking with Total Film, Cavill briefly talked about Affleck’s casting and why he thinks Ben will do well in the role.

“I’m sure he’ll be fantastic, above all else, and as a filmmaker he’s got his own style, you know, he’s not copying anyone else. And he’s also sort of been tenacious in his career. He’s had ups followed by downs and now he’s very up again and I think that requires and shows a very special strength of character, and it’s something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a strength of character. They require a dedication to the work and a belief in oneself and Ben has that, clearly.”

Coming to theaters on July 17, 2015, the Zack Snyder film also stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne.
