Producer Charles Roven recently took part in an extended interview at Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television, and his comments with regards to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are quite interesting. We already shared what he had to say about Wonder Woman’s origin story earlier today, but more of the interview has now surfaced online, offering up even more revealing tidbits about director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up. Roven says that Ben Affleck was the first actor they approached to play Batman in the pic, adding that they were looking for someone who could physically tower over Superman and play a “very, very, very rough” version of Batman.
Additionally, Roven talked a bit about Christopher Nolan’s involvement in Batman v Superman, saying he’s acting in an “advisory capacity” on the film. Much more after the jump.
