MUMBAI: Ever since actor Ben Affleck decided to play Batman, he has been attacked with some of the most critical remarks of his career. In fact even a petition began on the Change.org website calling for his removal currently as Batman for the sequel to Superman reboot Man of Steel 2.
However, slowly the industry is coming forward to support the actor. This time, it is actor Morgan Freeman, who has come out to talk in his support. The 76-year-old actor thinks that Affleck will surely fit the Batman’s role and asked the critics and fans to give him a chance to portray the much demanding role.
“It’s a franchise! It’ll stand on its own merits, and you can’t really say anything until he’s done it. The pre-judging was strange. Give him a shot!” Freeman said in a statement.
The next installment of the series will be the first film ever where Batman and Superman will come up on the big screen together. Henry Cavill has already been finalized for the role of Superman in the sequel.
