In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara discussed the recent casting of Ben Affleck as their studio’s new Batman, providing his support for the actor while also dropping a few hints about what we can expect from the new big screen iteration of the character.

Tsujihara described Affleck s perfect for the role, and stated that the new Batman will be “tired, and kind of weary and seasoned.” which is in line with the version we saw on the original pages of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. One good thing about this is that we don’t have to worry about sitting through another retelling of the character’s origin.

“Ben is perfect for the vision Zack [Snyder] has for that character,” continues Tsujihara. “The fact that you saw such a passionate response in the blogosphere is really kind of a testament to the love that people have for this character.”
