'Batman V Superman': Ben Affleck Talks Batman's Anger Issues

Batman in 'The Dark Knight Returns'

Point being, if Affleck's suggesting that Bruce Wayne's anger control issues in Batman V Superman are going to be similar to the actor's real-life - a reasonable idea given the influence of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns comic book story on the film - then that quality would only further distinguish his Caped Crusader in director Zack Snyder's movie, from previous live-action iterations.

Henry Cavill's Superman in Man of Steel was also a superhero who couldn't always keep his temper in check (often resulting in severe property damage), so maybe that's another thing else he and Batman can bond over in the movie. Perhaps they'll offer one another some much-needed psychological counseling, where Batman teaches Superman about the responsibilities that come with his powers and, in turn, Superman helps Batman to better express himself emotionally. Some face-punching may also be required, during their sessions together.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in U.S. theaters on March 25th, 2016.
