The Caped Crusader May Be The Ultimate Loner, But He’s Rediscovering Hope In Justice League


Turns out Superman’s sacrifice has really done a number on the Caped Crusader.

As a matter of fact, that lasting effect is teased in the official Justice League synopsis, which states that Batman, “fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act,” begins to form a team comprised of the world’s greatest heroes. Steppenwolf is coming, and Gotham’s Dark Knight will need all the help he can muster if he’s to ward off that impending apocalypse.

That’s a notable change from the sullen, downbeat Batfleck introduced in last year’s Dawn of Justice, and Ben Affleck recently touched on that welcome transition while speaking to US Weekly.

In Batman v Superman, he was at the end of his rope. But in Justice League he’s finding hope again. He has to open up and play well with others. He knows he needs them. But he’s really trying to make it work and develop a good relationship with all of them. He might be a mentor to The Flash.

He’s the ultimate loner, essentially, and his decision to form the Justice League even takes Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons) by surprise. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Diana Prince is very much the heart and soul of the League and here, actress Gal Gadot traces Diana’s journey from The Great War all the way through to the present day.

She’s grown up — it’s been a century, after all! She’ll bring her specific qualities to a group dynamic, and she understands the enemy better than anyone else.

Justice League zooms into theaters on November 17th and when it does, it’ll feature not one, but two post-credits scenes. Perhaps they’ll lay the foundations for Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2? Or what about that mooted Green Lantern cameo? All will be revealed in two months’ time.
