Ben Affleck promises a “more traditional Batman” in Justice League

Regardless of the rumors circulating around the star’s involvement in The Batman, Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight will be front and center in the upcoming Justice League film. Now, we know that Batman will be receiving a suit upgrade, and some sleek new vehicles in Justice League, but how else has his character changed? Justice League promises to be a lighter film than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so how will that new tone translate to Batman himself?
Speaking to EW Ben Affleck revealed that Justice League will offer a more “traditional” Caped Crusader this time around:
“He’s put in this position of having to reach out, find other people, convincing them to do something,” Affleck explains. “Part of the drama of the movie is the question of whether or not the team is going to come together. It’s very different from the tenor of the last movie. BvS departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod. He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people. This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics. This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book.”
This definitely keeps in line with the way things concluded in Batman v Superman. Superman’s sacrifice instilled hope in Bruce Wayne by the end, which motivates him to “unite the League”.Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.Justice League will reunite Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K.
