Upon its release in March last year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, drew a lot of flak from the critics and the Batman star Ben Affleck understands why. Affleck spoke to Empire and justified the criticisms by calling it “fair” and talked about the possibility of any impact that the criticism might have made on the upcoming Justice League which is set to release next month.
“I can understand people saying [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice] was too dark, or this was outside the tone of what I’m used to seeing with a Batman story, and I think that’s a fair criticism,” Affleck said.
But, that didn’t change the direction of Justice League. As per Affleck, the upcoming film “was all scripted and set up before that movie came out. The approach was changed anyway for the second one. It was natural progression.”
You can enjoy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
