Henry Cavill Weighs In On Ben Affleck Joining BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN


affleck batman bannerSuperman himself has finally weighed in on the Batfleck casting. Henry Cavill praised Ben Affleck as both an actor and a filmmaker while speaking with Total Film to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of Man of Steel. The actor probably hasn’t been in contact with Affleck that much since filming for the sequel hasn’t started just yet, but he did have a lot of nice things to say about his future co-star:

I’m sure he’ll be fantastic above all else. As a filmmaker he’s got his own style, you know. He’s not copying anyone else. He’s also sort of been tenacious in his career. He’s had ups followed by downs, and now he’s very up again. I think that requires, and shows, a very special strength of character. It’s something which I enjoy working with. Jobs like this require strength of character. They require a dedication to the work and a belief in oneself, and Ben has that clearly.

You can listen to Cavill‘s silky smooth British voice say the things you just read in the video below if you’re so inclined. Affleck has been beefing up lately, so Cavill is going to have to hit the gym hard if he wants to outdo the Caped Crusader. Just by looking at the two men and hearing them speak about their roles (though we’ve only heard from Affleck once), it seems like they will have great on-screen chemistry. What do you think about Cavill‘s comments? Do you hope we get a look at the two men together soon?
