Frank Miller Talks Batman v Superman Criticism & Affleck’s Performance

The creator of arguably the best graphic novel of all time, The Dark Knight Returns opened up about Batman v Superman. Given that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was basically a big budget fan fiction of the novel, you’d expect Miller to have a few things to say about it. While at the MegaCon 2016 convention in Orlando, the Comic Book legend attended a panel that held a Q & A and they asked more than a few questions pertaining to the film.

“When asked on the unfair criticism towards Batman v Superman and if he agreed with them, Miller only had this to say about the film:

“I was rooting for Batman.”

When asked if someone from The Batman camp reached out to him for advice on the film, as Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman is heavily based on his Batman from the Dark Knight Returns, Miller simply replied:

“They got my number.”

While DC Comics comic book writer Brian Azzarello who also appeared on the panel, playfully hinted at something when the question was first asked, which egged on the host to then asked him what was on his mind, which Azzarello simply replied playfully:


When asked on Ben Affleck’s performance as Batman in Batman v Superman, Miller had encouraging words:

“I liked it, he’s a good actor. I mean, he’s obviously very, very close to this material and plays it with great affection.”

When the same fan went on to states how Affleck was crucify for his performance online, Miller responded back with:

“The wonderful thing about the internet is the delete button.”

Regardless of how you feel about the film, Miller is right Ben Affleck plays an awesome Batman. What do you think of Frank Millers’s comments?
