There has been an awakening...have YOU felt it?

Ben Affleck, while doing the press tour for [Gone Girl](movie:833123):

Yeah, I don’t want to answer too many Batman questions because it is a Gone Girl thing, but I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that [Dark Knight Returns]. I think everyone’s heavily influenced by that…that’s the seminal work. So, I don’t think that there’s any of these which have been made that haven’t drawn from that book because it’s so good. So, you know, I think if you’re smart you steal from the best. That’s why I’m going to rip David [Fincher] off from now on everywhere I go!”

In another interview, Ben Affleck said that seeing Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans also influenced him into shaping his physique:

I have been getting bigger, yeah. I have been working out a lot. These are not roles that you can do and not exercise for. Audiences have now increasing expectations. Like, in the 50s, you could just be like Burt Lancaster and tall. That was ok, but now you see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just, you think, ‘How is that even possible?’”

He also said that he would like to keep the Batman suit after the filming is over:

So I asked them, like, ‘What about maybe taking the suit home at the end of the thing?’ And they’re like, ‘For $100,000 you can.’ I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll just take a picture.’ A lot goes into it, there’s a lot of designers and as you see there, these movies have become a big deal. They spend a lot of money and the guy who did the suits did a very good job.”
