Ben Affleck Says Batman Will Find Hope Again In ‘Justice League’

Justice League Movie Batman Wonder Woman The FlashIn a recent interview for Justice League, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot discussed how Batman and Wonder Woman are struggling to fit in.

When speaking with US Weekly, Gal Gadot went in-depth with their characters, discussing how she’s progressed since we last saw her:

“She’s grown up — it’s been a century, after all! She’ll bring her specific qualities to a group dynamic, and she understands the enemy better than anyone else.”

Ben Affleck was also asked how Batman has changed since we last him:

Ben Affleck: “In Batman v Superman, he was at the end of his rope. But in Justice League he’s finding hope again. He has to open up and play well with others. He knows he needs them.”

One of the most important parts of Batman’s arc in Batman V Superman was regarding how he refused to play nice with others – specifically Superman, who he saw as a literal terrorist. Going forward, it’s interesting to hear Affleck say that he’s willing to open up to other members of the League.

“He’s sort of the ultimate loner, but he’s really trying to make it work and develop a good relationship with all of them. He might be a mentor to The Flash.”

In the promotional footage of the film, we’ve seen Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen riff off each other greatly, and we do sense that The Flash is looking for something to fight for when he joins the League, and maybe Batman can help him find that?

Do you think Batman will truly find hope by the end of Justice League? Comment below and let us know!

In Justice 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 is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.
