Ben Affleck Sought Bat Advice From Clooney And Bale Ahead Of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice


In donning the cape and cowl for Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe, Ben Affleck has spoken before about seeking advice from those actors who have portrayed the World’s Greatest Detective in the past.

From Clooney to Bale, Affleck touched base on some of the words of wisdom he was given in preparation for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.


Putting superhero squabbles to one side for the time being, Affleck was joined by Henry Cavill for a recent episode of Good Morning America, where the pair were quizzed about all things Dawn of Justice. And though Affleck’s comments didn’t reveal an awful lot – “[Clooney] had some advice which is not repeatable” – Cavill shed some light on the bad blood that drives the two comic book titans apart in the first place.

“When Supes turns up, when he shows himself, he makes a bit of a mess. I mean, I would saw Bruce is probably one of the few people who thinks, ‘I could probably find a way of stopping this guy if needs be.’ And so, I think it’s out of just being careful.”

As Affleck’s Caped Crusader growls in the most recent trailer: “if we believe there is even a one percent chance that he is our enemy then we have to take it as an absolute certainty.” Bold words indeed.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters on March 25.
