Most of you already know about the drama surrounding the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film. Hardcore fans of the series lost their freaking minds when one of the final trailers revealed Doomsday’s role in the movie.
Some fans claimed they weren’t going to support the movie because of the spoilers inside the trailer. But even with all the drama, the box-office projections for Dawn of Justice are looking just fine, which is probably why Ben Affleck isn’t worried.
He talked with The LA Times recently about some of the hateful comments being shared online. The reporter asked him directly if it was possible to ignore the negative reactions…
“Nobody tweeted about ‘Casablanca,’ and look at how they did. [Laughs] From directing movies myself, at this point I always feel too enmeshed with it, where I get this panicked sense of like, “Is it good? It’s horrible, right? It’s going to bomb.” But I have a little more sense of remove from this. I feel relaxed and I’m proud of the movie and excited for people to see it. It’s a much nicer feeling. I’m so glad I’m not Zack.”
Not exactly a surprising response from the actor. He’s not going to say anything to piss off the fans. They are just now accepting him. You all remember the outrage online when it was announced he would be playing Batman.
He’s probably just happy the fans aren’t attacking him anymore. All their anger seems to be directed at Zack Snyder now.
