It makes us all wonder why Zack Snyder chose Ben Affleck for the role of Batman in his new film. Not only is it a risk to both his reputation and to the character himself, but it also poses a brand new set of questions for us to discuss and, perhaps, stress on. Like if Batman will be killed of in the film, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, there is a possibility that he just might. Let’s talk about that!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I completely understand why Affleck was chosen for the role. Snyder is clearly adopting the Frank Miller Batman series and needed an “aged” Bruce Wayne. Luckily for him, Affleck was available for the role. Then again, I, for some reason, doubt that that is the only purpose for Affleck’s appearance. I think Snyder needed an aged Bruce Wayne, and this is just a theory, to kill off. Maybe Snyder wants a younger Batman for his upcoming Justice League movie. And I just would like to clear things up: THIS IS JUST A THEORY. I really don’t want one of my childhood idles to get killed off. But he might. It’s a fat chance, but still a chance. However, just imagine how angry fans would be that both Batman is dead and that there would be no Bruce Wayne in the Justice League movie. I’d be pretty pissed, and I’m sure you’ll be pissed too. The only reason I even developed this theory is because I know Snyder is not afraid to take risks. I mean, look what happened at the end of 2013’s Man of Steel movie. No one expected that, and yet, we were surprisingly okay with it. Obviously this is a different case, but I just want all you DC fanatics, including myself, to prepare for change. I can almost guarrantee there will be some kind of plot twist or shocking turns in the story that not all of us would like to see or approve.
Well guys, we’ll just have to wait and see I guess. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits your local theater on March 25th, 2016.
