Producer, Kevin Feige, has been the man behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since its inception way back in 2008 when Iron Man was released in cinemas across the world. Since then, the MCU has managed to pump out 20 plus films, with more in active production and grossed over $17 billion at the box office making it the most successful film franchise of all time.
When Ben Affleck was cast at Bruce Wayne/Batman way back in 2013, I was a little confused as to the choice of casting an older Batman. Don’t get me wrong, I always picture Batman in his late 30s to early 40s, but Ben Affleck was 41 at the time of his casting announcement, and he looked to be on his late 40s. My other issue with the casting was, you immediately age Batman up way above Superman. Not only that, but how long can Ben Affleck hold onto that physique? I mean you want him to play Batman across multiple from many number of years?
