Actor Ben Affleck has revealed that his portrayal of Batman will differ from that of Christian Bale’s in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” movies.

The 43-year-old actor told French magazine Studio Cine Live that his version of the Dark Knight will be much more frustrated, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Christopher Nolan used his Batman to tell a finite story. My version is different, but remains faithful to the Batman mythology and all the themes associated with it,” Affleck said.

“Nolan’s Batman isn’t part of a universe where other superheroes exist as well. Here – because we’re working towards the Justice League – there’s Superman, and it’s a world populated with super beings. This situation generates an altogether new reality.”

Affleck suggested that Batman will embrace his billionaire lifestyle more wholeheartedly, saying that he “plays a bit more” the playboy side of the character.

“He lives that life at full tilt. He courts many women, owns many cars, and parties a lot. He does that as a way to fill the void in his soul.

“Moreover, past incarnations dealt with a straightforward search for justice. This time, Batman’s reasoning is clouded by frustration, bitterness and anger.”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will release in cinemas March 25.
