Ben Affleck Says JUSTICE LEAGUE Finally Brings Humor To The DC Films Universe

Ben Affleck talks here about how Justice League brings some much-needed humour to the DC Films Universe but will that lessen the stakes when the team battles Steppenwolf? Hit the jump for further details.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featured a very dark tone which didn't sit particularly well with critics and moviegoers used to the levity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but Justice League looks set to change that with the injection of a lot more humour. That's something emphasised by Ben Affleck in a new interview with Geek Magazine in which he promises plenty of laughs from the team of heroes.

"Justice League is a big change tonally because you now have the personalities of all these different characters coming together, and it gives you a chance to infuse a lot of humor into the scenes," the actor confirms, while promising a much lighter tone. "For Bruce, he’s having to open up and play well with others because he knows he needs them, so while he doesn’t lose sight of how serious the threat is, he’s humanized by the Flash’s earnestness, Diana’s warmth, even Aquaman’s needling."
 
From day one, it's been said that Ezra Miller's Flash will be the main source of humour but Joss Whedon's reshoots have seemingly changed that as Empire Magazine recently revealed that Alfred has plenty of one-liners too. We're even going to get a smile from the Dark Knight according to Affleck! 

However, don't expect this lighter tone to lessen the stakes of the team's battle with Steppenwolf. "The goal of the team is intense — they have to save the world, after all — but the humor that comes into it from all of these characters trying to work together, some of them with more experience, some with essentially none, results in a lot of laughter and playful banter that I believe audiences will really enjoy." Affleck sounds confident in Justice League's new team but will he stay on as Batman?

That likely depends on how well this movie is received, so here's hoping audiences love these changes.
