Zack Snyder reveals who would have been Batman if Ben Affleck said no
While speaking with MTV's Josh Horowitz for the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the director was asked about who was in the mix as backup if Snyder hadn't got the green light from Affleck.
"I was talking to him a lot about it," the Army of the Dead helmer told Horowitz of speaking to Schoenaerts.
"He never got in the suit," Snyder said, "but I did do a bunch of mockups of him, because Ben was on the fence, you know. And I don't blame him. Everyone should be on the fence when you're asked, 'Do you want to play Batman?"
Affleck was most recently featured in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Snyder's cut of Justice League. Robert Pattinson will play a new incarnation of the Dark Knight in the upcoming film The Batman.
