Ben Affleck’s Darker Batman Always Fit His DCEU Backstory

Ben Affleck's Batman may seem more violent and a lot darker than other iterations of the Caped Crusader in movies, but his grim portrayal of the Dark Knight is a perfect fit for the superhero's tragic backstory in the DCEU. Unlike Robert Pattinson and Christian Bale's Batman, who use controlled fear to fight crime in Gotham, Ben Affleck's Batman lets fear consume him and allows it to morph into anger and blinding hate. As a result, Affleck's Batman almost comes off as a criminal who mindlessly goes on a warpath against Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it is debatable whether Snyder-verse's Batman ranks among the vigilante's best portrayal's on the big screen, he undoubtedly has the most intriguing and narratively relevant backstories.
