"Before I took the role, Warner Bros. (executives) gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, 'Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There's a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions...' I wouldn't have taken the part if I didn't trust my instincts in terms of the filmmaking. I think Chris Terrio wrote a terrific script. Zack's a great visual director... I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think I could do it." Ben Affleck addresses the fan backlash to his casting as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, which is being directed by Zack Snyder.
