‘Justice League’: Ben Affleck Talks Bruce Wayne And His Mission To Recruit’

Ben Affleck, in a recent interview, explained the dynamics of the much-hyped superhero film Justice League. He explained how different individuals with different powers come together and collaborate. Throwing light into his character Bruce Wayne, Affleck spoke about heroes’ attempt to bring all powers together and form a team, thereby lending a particular dynamic to the film Justice League.

Justice League’s final trailer released earlier this week and featured the dynamics between Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and The Flash. Ben Affleck, while talking to SFX Magazine spoke about the collaboration of the characters in Justice League.

“It’s interesting because that’s kind of the theme of the movie. It’s about the various individuals and how it is that they come to work together, essentially, and collaborate. They don’t all jump in the same boat with the same mission right away. There’s a process through which Bruce Wayne is trying to recruit people and then convince them of the righteousness of the cause, and that it’s important for them to work together. So that very dynamic is really a big part of the first and second acts of the movie. It worked out dramatically,” said Affleck.

We got to know from the trailers of Justice League that while Bruce Wayne is able to easily convince Wonder Woman and Flash, he finds it much harder to get through to Cyborg and Aquaman. He is deeply inspired by the sacrifice of Superman (Henry Cavill), and does all that it takes for him to bring all these mismatched heroes together and fight as a team. How he does that and how the team operates is what we can look forward to in Justice League coming up next month.

Giving more idea of what the film has in store for its fans, Ray Fisher who plays Cyborg in the film said, “Bruce Wayne is working hard to create a cohesive unit in order to save the world, Diana Prince aims to make the world a better place, and Barry Allen is just enjoying finally having friends.”

Talking about the tonal change in Justice League, Ben Affleck explained that the story was a union of the various personalities of the superheroes, and so it was possible to infuse humor in many of the scenes. “For Bruce, he’s having to open up and play well with others because he knows he needs them, so while he doesn’t lose sight of how serious the threat is, he’s humanized by the Flash’s earnestness, Diana’s warmth, even Aquaman’s needling,” added Affleck who plays Batman in the film.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, , Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
