Zack Snyder Says Casting Ben Affleck as Batman was a “No Brainer”

It’s almost time to watch Ben Affleck take up the cape and cowl. We’re a little over two months away from BVS but Zack Snyder recently commented on casting Affleck for the role.

The director told People Magazine, “He’s an amazing Bruce Wayne, let’s just be frank about that. And then when he puts the cowl on, you know he’s got the chin for it.”

“Casting Ben felt like a no brainer to me,” stated Snyder. “I know that there was some backlash, but he’s just so perfect to me, especially in his size and his age.”

“He’s certainly got the chops for it, so I didn’t quite get the initial reaction,” he added.

Our first look at Affleck came from an on set picture of him standing next to the Batmobile. Snyder explained it was then that he knew they had something special. “When I looked at the back of the camera to see what it looked like, I was like, ‘Holy s—, that is ridiculously perfect.”
