Quentin Tarantino comments on Ben Affleck as Batman

Never one to pull any punches, Quentin Tarantino has become the latest Hollywood commentator to have his say on the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, with the director seeming lukewarm towards the whole affair.

Pleasingly for Affleck however, is the fact that it isn’t the actor that leaves QT cold: it’s the character…

“I have to admit that I don’t really have an opinion,” said Tarantino, when posed the inevitable Affleck question. “Why? Because Batman is not a very interesting character. For any actor.”

“There is simply not much to play,” he continues. “I think Michael Keaton did it the best, and I wish good luck to Ben Affleck. But, you know who would have made a great Batman? Alec Baldwin in the ’80s.”

And it’s brainwaves like that that make us wonder just what would happen if QT were ever persuaded to turn his camera on Gotham…

Batman vs. Superman will open in the US on 17 July 2015.
