Batman has been portrayed in many different ways on the big screen over the years. Usually the Dark Knight is seen fighting crime, helping out the Gotham City police. However, in the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie, we could see a Batman who's seeking justice more singlehandedly.
In an interview with Empire, producer Charles Roven said Batman (Ben Affleck) will take matters into his own hands in the upcoming flick. The hero in this film will be "tougher, darker and angrier" after seeing the worst of what people can do to one another.
"He is more than a vigilante. He has become not only the cop, if you will; he has also become the jury and executioner,” Roven dished.
Roven added that the film will feature an older Bruce Wayne that has experienced his share of lost loved ones. He also revealed that his losses aren't necessarily from "old age or disease."
CinemaBlend notes that while Batman may not have a Rachel to grieve over, there's still the idea of losing both of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne, at an early age. There are also rumors that the Joker killed the Jason Todd version of Robin in the movie, but it hasn't been confirmed.
Director Zack Snyder recently told Obsev that the upcoming film will be more of a drama than an action movie. Although there will be fight sequences between Batman and Superman (Henry Cavill), the root of the movie will mostly focus on the relationship between the two iconic superheroes and what makes them who they are.
"They have to figure out each other, to figure out how to fight each other," Snyder said. "So it’s really about what makes them tick, and sort of … How that’s going to work out in a conflict. And we’ll see what happens."
