(Getty Images | Warner Bros.)Ben Affleck didn't exactly win a ringing endorsement from the Internet when it was announced he would star as Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But he has one very important Batman fan in his corner, Dark Knight mastermind Christopher Nolan. While talking about his new movie, Interstellar, with The Daily Beast, Nolan said he can't wait to see Ben's version of the Caped Crusader.
I’m only involved in that project in an advisory capacity as an executive producer, so I’m not involved in the day-to-day. When they told me that Ben was interested in doing it, I thought, “How thrilling!” This is the guy who just won Best Picture as a director and as an actor, and I thought it would be a great thing that he’d be willing to do this. I think the guy is incredibly talented and I’m very excited to see what Zack and Ben do together.
