It’s been a few weeks since Ben Affleck was announced as the next Batman or Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman film, but that’s not yet enough time for it soak in with fans that ‘Batfleck’ is a reality. However, while fans are stopping short of watching the world burn over the casting decision, Affleck’s close friends and family are fully supporting him.
His closest supporter is his wife, actress Jennifer Garner. In speaking with MTV recently, Garner said that Affleck has a plan for Batman and she’s excited to see what he does with the character.
“You know, I was excited for him,” said Garner. “I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do, and you know, I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I’m excited to watch him do it.”
Garner also mentioned that she has heard Affleck’s Batman voice but wouldn’t get into details over what it sounds like. This early in the game, Affleck’s voice for Batman is still being developed but next to seeing him in the suit, fans want to know what this rendition of The Dark Knight will sound like.
Christian Bale’s Batman was knocked hard for the voice he chose, but when it comes to Affleck the voice he chooses will likely be the least of his concerns when it comes to angering the Batman fan base.
