Iconic writer and artist Frank Miller doesn't mince words when it comes to the live-action adaptations of his work. He's been honest about his lack of desire to see Elektra, a character he created, appear in season two of Netflix's "Daredevil," and now he's commented on the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" feature film.
Miller commented on the film, which borrows elements from his 1986 mini-series "The Dark Knight Returns," during a panel at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. The panel, which focused on the '80s Batman story, also featured writer Brian Azzarello. As reported by DC Comics Movie, Miller had something to say when "BvS" came up. When asked for his opinion on "BvS," Miller only offered one statement: "I was rooting for Batman."
While Miller didn't have any more specific thoughts about the film, he did elaborate more on Ben Affleck's performance as Batman. "I liked it, he's a good actor," said Miller. "I mean, he's obviously very, very close to this material and plays it with great affection."
Affleck is currently developing a new solo "Batman" film that he will co-write, direct and star in. When asked if anyone in "the Batman camp" had reached out to him for advice on the new film, Miller said, "They got my number."
Miller isn't the only legendary comic artist opening up about "Batman v Superman." Just yesterday, "Watchmen" artist Dave Gibbons gave his opinion on the film, going more in-depth than Miller. "Where the latest film suffered is because [Batman and Superman] were both these dark, opaque, angsty creatures," said Gibbons.
