In a recent interview with Total Film, Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill was asked his thoughts on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman for the Man of Steel sequel.
Superman said, “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.”
The Man of Steel sequel, still not officially called Batman vs Superman just yet, is set for a 17th July, 2015 release.
