In the interview, both Affleck and Cavill recall the “prologue” of the film and how it will be basically a flashback of Man of Steel, but from Bruce Wayne’s perspective. Here is what both stars had to say,
“‘What happens there is one of Bruce’s buildings gets destroyed and he’s trying to save all the people inside the building and he can’t. So he is this angry person who fears what Superman may do. Why are they just going to trust this super-powered alien? What if he does decide to turn against us?’
‘He’s found himself in a place of harboring a tremendous amount of rage for Superman,’ [Affleck adds.] ‘So it’s how he got there, and what that’s done to him, and what that’s done to people around him like Alfred, who are, I think, very scared and worried for him. It’s something that’s interesting and new.'”
Based on what they’ve said, many of us have already seen some of the opening. Remember the teaser trailer from San Diego Comic Con earlier this year? In the trailer we saw Bruce on his phone as one of his buildings gets cut in half during the fight between Superman and Zod. If you don’t remember, here’s a photo to remind you.
In that same interview, Affleck opened up about the potential to direct his own Batman film. Check out what he had to say about it,
“‘If I could make it work, yeah, Obviously that would be like a dream. The trick is, as to any movie, is to make sure that you – if you’re going to direct it – that you can make it good. You’ve got to have the right idea and the right take on it… Broadly speaking, it’s something I’d be open to, for sure. It’s a very exciting idea.'”
If you’re not familiar with Affleck’s directing resume he’s directed movies such as Argo, The Town, and Gone Baby Gone. If the Affleck directed Batman film is anything like those movies, then be prepared for a movie that may be on par, if not better, than the Christopher Nolan films.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
