Zack Snyder has repeatedly said that the hugely anticipated Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice is influenced by The Dark Knight Returns story-line. Warner Bros had mentioned with regards to Ben Affleck's casting that Batman will be "... old, tired, seasoned". In his most recent interview, Zack Snyder maintained that Batffleck will be "..crusty,old" .....Message is clear Batffleck will be old! But a recent rumor makes these statements even more pertinent.
Devin Faraci of Badass Digest recently wrote an article claiming to have information on Batffleck's history
"My sources indicate that when Batman vs Supmerman opens Batman has existed for close to thirty years, which would place Wayne in his 50s (which is why I expected more grey in Affleck's hair). In this version Batman is still an urban legend, a creature of the night, and no one has ever taken his picture. But he's had plenty of adventures, and the Batcave includes a memorial centered around a tattered Robin costume"
With regards to [Wonder Woman](movie:45787) he added..
"my sources tell me that Wonder Woman has also been in operation for some time before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice* begins, and her activities have been just as secretive as Batman's. Her activities were badass as well... but in a very different, and unexpected, way"
Wonder Woman is ageless so they can go any way with her. But Batman in his fifties? Now The Dark Knight Returns story line had a 55 year old Batman coming out of retirement so it would be faithful to the source material. We knew Batman will be a veteran in this film, but most of the fans were expecting a Batman in his mid-forties.
I doubt it. First of all Ben Affleck doesn't look that old. Secondly the comic-con teaser trailer showed Batman firing a rusty Bat-signal. If Batman is an urban legend, then why would he have a Bat-signal in the first place. Again the teaser could be something that was just shown for comic-con and that scene might not be in the movie.
Let me know what you guys think about this rumor in the comments section
