Ben Affleck Discusses The "Rebirth" Of The DC Films Universe And Teases THE BATMAN's Female Lead

Ben Affleck talks here about the big changes which have been made to the DC Films Universe as a result of Justice League and weighs in on a possible role for Sienna Miller in The Batman...

HeyUGuys recently managed to catch up with Ben Affleck to talk Live by Night, and they were quick to ask the actor and director about what it was like to work on Justice League. Interestingly, he was quick to use the word "Rebirth" in regards to the current state of the DC Films Universe before being sure to point out just how much "fun" he had while working on the upcoming release from Zack Snyder. 

"It was great, and there's a lot of changes and a lot of new stuff. There was a whole feeling of kind of 'rebirth' and there's an exciting group of actors. You know, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa and guys like that, so much fun, and Gal Gadot who's great and Henry Cavill. It was a lot of fun," he added.

The interviewer then suggested that Sienna Miller would be a good fit for the role of reporter and Bruce Wayne love interest Vicki Vale, and while the actress admitted that she doesn't know who that is, Affleck went on to say that, "She's perfect for anything. She could do anything. Vicki Vale's kind of bitchy, I think she's better for...well, we won't say that." Man, how frustrating is that? The fact that Affleck has someone in mind for her may point to The Batman having a female lead, but who could it be? Miller has said that she's read the script and knows Catwoman isn't in the movie, so time will tell.
