Ben Affleck Talks About The Death Of Robin

The press tour for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starts to pick up this week, as we are less than two weeks away from the release of the film. Ben Affleck spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the impact the death of Robin has had on Batman in this new DC Cinematic Universe.

“He’s bitterly disappointed in the past that he’s lost this guy who fought by his side. That character’s death must have been devastating to him, and he’s suffered. We get the sense that he’s suffered a lot of devastating losses before this movie even starts,” said Affleck.

Are you disappointed that the DC Cinematic Universe has jumped so far ahead in the Batman mythos?
