To help prepare for his role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck revealed he keyed in on a trait he shares with the Dark Knight of director Zack Snyder’s film: rage.
“I think it’s a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films,” the 42-year-old actor told The Sunday Times. “For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts. I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put up with, put up with, put up with … then, when it finally emerges, it’s not something I have a ton of control over. I’m not gonna go into a Wolverine berserker rage, but I do have a, I do […] That’s my personality.”
“I don’t worry too much about what other people say about me versus my own ideas and standards, what I’d like to do,” he said. “Particularly given that when I set out, in 2002 or so, to be a director, if I had listened to all the things people said about whether or not I’d be successful and what kind of movies I’d make, I never would have done it. It was a really good lesson in self-determination and trusting my instincts.”
Opening March 25, 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy.
