OMG! The new Batman is gonna be reluctant! Sweet! A dark, troubled superhero. It was just a matter of time before someone tackled the concept.
Following in the tiny, seemingly-pirouetted footsteps of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man, Ben Affleck‘s Batman will be an exhausted shell of himself, having mired in crime fighting for far too long.
Whether or not this means we’ll see Bruce Wayne half-heartedly taking his wife to Buffalo Wild Wings or vacationing in Orlando is anyone’s guess, but it’s interesting to hear a studio exec speak so bluntly about the outlook of the revamped superhero.
Warner Bros. head Kevin Tsujihara stated Batman will be “kind of tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while.” SOLD!
Here’s to hoping Batman’s new costume is entirely sweatpants as we watch him languish on level 34 of Candy Crush.
