Casey Affleck talks about brother Ben as Batman - WEEI Radio

Ben Affleck talks how Batman will be more traditional in Justice League - Entertainment Weekly
It’s different for Batman to reach out for help and see if the team will come together
“He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.”
“I think it’s a really cool story. Actually, it’s sort of a story about multilateralism. It’s not a bad theme to have!”
