Ben Affleck admits that some critics against Batman V Superman are justified

Published

In an interview with Empire, Ben Affleck said he understood the critics considering “Batman V Superman” too dark while promising that “Justice League” would be a very different movie in terms of tone.

No pity for Batman VS Superman. Since its release in theaters in March 2016, Zach Snyder’s ” All-Star Game” between the great superheroes of DC has suffered from multiple attacks and bad reviews, coming from both the press and of the public. While continuing in parallel a very beautiful career at the box office, the film, judged too dark, too serious and sometimes incoherent, put off many fans.

But, apart from that, the actor had, up to now, not really given reason to the slayers of his film. In the pages of Empire, which this month devoted a special issue to  Justice League, the next DC Universe

Justice League, which will bring together Batman and Wonder Woman around the superhero league, should have a lighter tone, in line with Wonder Woman. According to Affleck, this change of tone was not decided after the bashing suffered by Batman V Superman but was a fair evolution of things, planned from the start:

” It was already in the script and installed before [Batman V Superman] went out.” The approach had to change for the second movie anyway, it was part of a natural progression (…)  Zack Snyder wanted to do a film that is more fun, lighter and not overloaded with too heavy melodrama. “
