Josh Brolin has confirmed to The Huffington Post that he was up for the role of Batman in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman/Batman movie, a role which instead went to Ben Affleck.
Asked if he had any conversations with Snyder about the role, Brolin said, “We did. I didn’t have conversations about it, but Zack, that was part of his idea. It just didn’t turn out. It’s OK. It is OK. You know, another scenario might have worked better, but I’m happy for Ben.”
I’m not sure by how much, but I think this would have been a better choice. Then again, I’m not really the right person to ask or to weigh in on this. I don’t care about this sequel one bit as much as I hated Man of Steel. So whatever happens, I’m just likely to run my mouth about how bad it is. Ah well, that should be fun anyway.
