Ben Affleck Says Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice Script Is Really Smart

by Joe Comicbook

Ben Affleck has started doing promotional interviews for Gone Girl, which means that reporters will be asking him dozens of questions about the film just so they can sneak in a question about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. No disrespect to Gone Girl, which actually looks pretty good, but you know, the film doesn't appear to have a single superhero in it.

As part of pretending to be interested in Gone Girl, the New York Times was able to finagle a couple brief comments about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice out of Mr. Affleck.

In regards to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which he probably won't win an Oscar for but everyone will go see, Affleck professed, "I’m having a blast."

Affleck also praised the script, which is written by Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio. Affleck described the script as being "really unique to the genre and really smart."

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on March 25, 2016. (And as a side note, Gone Girl is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on October 3, 2014, but again no superheroes in it.)
